Disney and Lucasfilm are in the process of expanding the Star Wars universe in ways it has never grown before. They’ve got Star War Rebels on the air, episodic movies like Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the works, standalone films scheduled, and comics, movies, games, and novels all adding to the official canon. If that sounds like a lot, it is, but if it sounds like enough, it is most certainly not. They’re taking the Marvel, lets-do-as-much-as-we-possibly-can approach, and they have another animated series in development.
Rebels has turned out to be a lot of fun (I’m still way, way behind because I don’t get Disney XD at home), and was renewed for a second season right as season one kicked off earlier this fall. But according to a report over at Slashfilm, the high Disney muckety mucks already know how the series is going to end, and have a new one lined up to fill the void. This isn’t super imminent, as they still reportedly plan to do “about” three or four seasons of Rebels, but it definitely shows how they’re approaching this new age of Star Wars, and that they have an eye on the future.
