New Star Wars Animated Series Rumored



The latest rumors have it that a new animated series will follow Star Wars Rebels and be set in the current Star Wars era.

SlashFilm heard from a source, that apparently knows LucasFilm's plans, that Star Wars Rebels (set between Episodes III and IV) will run for about three or four seasons.

A new Star Wars animated series will then follow featuring all new characters set in the timeline of the current movies (Episode VII and beyond).

It's speculated, if true, the new Star Wars animated series may debut in 2017/2018 possibly with Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Disney has already announced a second season for Star Wars Rebels, so at least the desire for more is there.
