'Star Wars: Rebels' Hits Our Galaxy on October 3rd


By Dave Bouressa

On the morning of August 19th, Starwars.com unveiled the long-awaited release date for its upcoming television series, Star Wars: Rebels, as well as the upcoming dates for both of Disney's channels, iTunes releases, and DVD retail releases.



Continuing the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga, an exciting animated one-hour movie 
Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion is set to premiere Friday, October 3 (9:00 p.m. ET/PT in the US)
 on Disney Channels around the world, ushering in the highly anticipated series Star Wars Rebels on 
Disney XD.  In the US, Star Wars Rebels episodes will debut Monday nights beginning 
Monday, October 13 (9:00 p.m. ET/PT) on Disney XD.  Worldwide, the series will air in 3
3 languages across 163 countries in over 400 million households.
Leading up to its global television debut, Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion will be available on 
Disney Channel SVOD and to verified users beginning Monday, September 29, on
 WATCHDisneyXD.com and the WATCH Disney XD app.
Set between the events of Star Wars: Episodes III and IV, the story unfolds during a dark time when the
 evil Galactic Empire is tightening its grip of power on the galaxy. Imperial forces have occupied a 
remote planet and are ruining the lives of its people. The motley but clever crew of the starship 
Ghost — cowboy Jedi Kanan, ace pilot Hera, street-smart teenager Ezra, the “muscle” Zeb, warrior
 firebrand Sabine, and cantankerous old astromech droid Chopper — is among a select few who are 
brave enough to stand against the Empire. 
Together, they will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling
 adventures, and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.
At the Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion Fan Event at San Diego Comic-Con this year, the 
movie garnered rave reviews from fans who found the story and look akin to the classic trilogy of films.
The series’ designs are influenced by the work of original Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie.
