Over the past weekend during New York Comic-Con, Star Wars: Rebels was one of the key panels to check out for what Lucasfilm would offer fans in 2014. While Star Wars Celebration Europe also had a panel about the upcoming animated series, New York Comic-Con featured a panel that focused primarily on the Galactic Empire rather than the would-be Rebel Alliance. The above video from Geek Tyrant features the entire panel, hosted by Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo.
While Hidalgo was the only one from Lucasfilm to attend New York Comic-Con, the Rebels panel was very informative about the tone and feel of the new animated series. Hidalgo started by telling the crowd that the new series will air in the fall of 2014, launching with an hour-long episode on the Disney Channel, then continuing with regular half-hour episodes on Disney XD.
