Disney XD announced today that it has ordered a third season of Lucasfilm’s animated series Star Wars Rebels, which follows a ragtag group of heroes that dare to strike back against Imperial forces. Rebels season three is currently in production and scheduled to premiere in 2016.

“We are proud to bring our audience a third season of Star Wars Rebels,” says Marc Buhaj, Disney XD’s senior vice president, Programming and General Manager, “a series that has resonated across generations. The creative team behind the series continues to do a brilliant job in delivering on the key tenets that fans have come to expect from a ‘Star Wars’ property including adventure, hope and the battle between good vs. evil.”

To date, Star Wars Rebels ranks as Disney XD’s number two series in Total Viewers (1.3 million), Kids 6-11, Boys 6-11 and Boys 2-11. It’s the channel’s number one program among Adults 18-49 and Men 18-49. In the most recent quarter tabulated (3Q15), Star Wars Rebels reached over 48 million unique Total Viewers in 157 countries/territories and in 30 languages. Star Wars Rebels has also generated nearly 4 million video starts on WATCH Disney XD.

“We’re very proud of our incredibly creative Rebels team,” adds Lucasfilm SVP of Development, Kiri Hart. “The show continues to tell fun, heartfelt, exciting new Star Wars stories week after week, and it’s beloved by fans of all ages. Season Three will see our rebel heroes face new obstacles and find new allies in their fight against the Empire.”

The transformative second season of Star Wars Rebels featured the return of fan-favorite clone troopers Captain Rex, Captain Gregor, and Commander Wolffe, and the debut of new characters including the Seventh Sister, a cunning and crafty Inquisitor who is tasked by Darth Vader to track down the rebels. Following a series of critical events, the lives of our heroes will be changed forever as Rebels season three begins.

Star Wars Rebels is created by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes), and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is executive-produced by Filoni and Kinberg.

The season two voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex, Captain Gregor and Commander Wolffe, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus and Sarah Michelle Gellar as the Seventh Sister Inquisitor.

First Clip from Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Revealed!

SuperHeroHype

Jul 13, 2016

Ahead of the franchise’s annual Star Wars Celebration this week, Lucasfilm has revealed the first clip from Star Wars Rebels Season 3 in the latest episode of The Star Wars Show! Check it out in the player below beginning at the 3:40 mark.

Lucasfilm previously announced that Star Wars Rebels executive producer and supervising director Dave Filoni and special guests will share highly-guarded sneak peeks at what’s to come in Star Wars Rebels Season 3, including a screening of the first two episodes, at this year’s Star Wars Celebration.

A long-time Star Wars fan himself, Filoni’s direction has added depth and resonance to the universe and characters with the critically-acclaimed Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels animated series. Fans at Celebration are in for great programming, and some unforgettable Q&A sessions, whenever Filoni takes the stage.

In the shocking two-part Season 2 finale of Star Wars Rebels, titled “Twilight of the Apprentice,” destinies were forever changed and iconic characters re-emerged. In the one-hour finale, Kanan, Ezra and Ahsoka seek out an Inquisitor to gain information about Vader, but soon encounter an unexpected ally in their fight against the Sith. When their search leads them to a confrontation with Vader (voiced by James Earl Jones), the three Jedi and their new ally must marshal all their strengths to survive.

Tom Baker? Sweet! He has such a great voice. He should have been doing voice overs long before now.
