It’s barely out of the gate, but Star Wars Rebels has already been renewed for a second season by Disney XD! Disney Channels Worldwide President and Chief Creative Officer Gary Marsh made the announcement today, just one day ahead of the October 3rd premiere of Star Wars: Spark of the Rebellion – the movie that introduces Rebels. Here is what Marsh had to say regarding this decision:
“The global expectations for this series could not have been any higher. And I am proud to say that the team at Lucasfilm has delivered something that has surpassed even that incredibly high bar – artistically and thematically.”
Kiri Hart, Lucasfilm’s VP of Creative Development, was understandably pleased with the renewal….
“We all love making ‘Rebels,’ so we couldn’t be happier that it’s moving into a second season.
Our fantastic creative team is dreaming up new stories for the crew of the Ghost that will expand their experience of the galaxy and deepen their heroes’ journeys. The fan response to the show has been amazing, humbling and inspiring. We’re looking forward to the adventure ahead.”
Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion premieres Friday, October 3 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the Disney Channel. Star Wars Rebels premieres Monday, October 13 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.
