Live Star Wars Episode VII & Rebels Production News Rumored To Be Released Digitally With Final Clone War Episodes



A new rumor has landed online stating that Disney and LucasFilm are moving into the digital distribution game with Apple as it's reported live production news from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII and the new Star Wars: Rebels animated series will be made available through an App as well as the final episodes of Clone Wars.

The Star Wars fan site, Jedi News, has it from an insider source that a Disney App will launch on Apple TV which will exclusively include the final episodes to Clone Wars.

It's also said that in 2014, plans are underway to use the new platform to distribute Star Wars Episode VII news live from the sets, as well as from Star Wars: Rebels all the way through to Episode 7's release.

The report goes on to state that the new App will be available only on Apple TV devices capable of running iOS 7, with no confirmation of the other devices such as the iPhone or iPad.

Interestingly enough, Kathleen Kennedy, head of LucasFilm, previously stated in an interview (below around the 1:15 mark) that in regards to internet spoilers and such that they need to embrace it:

We talk about that all the time. I think the whole issue of confidentiality is going to be fascinating as we move into making the movie. If we’re shooting anything outside, it’s almost impossible to not have things end up on the internet. So my feeling is, you need to embrace that, especially with the fans around something like Star Wars. You need to recognize that they are important to the process and acknowledge there are things you’re going want to make sure they get to know. So I think that’s something we’re going to monitor, pay attention to and think differently about.

Star Wars: Episode VII has a 2015 release being directed by J.J. Abrams.
