Disney XD's Star Wars Rebel Logo, Art & Info Revealed: Different Than Clone Wars

Body

Disney showed up in a big way at Star Wars Celebration Europe in Germany by unveiling the logo, art and information for their new animated series, Star Wars Rebels.

Below you can see Star Wars Rebels concept art from artist Ralph McQuarrie that reveals a look at the main character's ship, the Ghost.

Where did the idea for Rebels come from? Dave Filoni, supervising director on Star Wars Rebels, says Lucasfilm’s story team got together and talked about what they wanted to see, and they all agreed it was this era. He adds that it will visually be different from The Clone Wars, particularly it will have a strong influence from Ralph McQuarrie. “I looked at his paintings, and there are tons of paintings that he did that have never made it to the screen.” Concept art shows on screen, they look very Star Wars. “Ralph had such a mind for the future.” 

The series is set between the events of Episode III and IV -- an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen. It takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.

Star Wars Rebels will be produced by Lucasfilm Animation, featuring many of the key talents that made Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It is scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, and will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
