Executive Producer Of STAR WARS: REBELS On The Show’s Timeline
The official Star Wars YouTube page has posted a video introducing fans to Star Wars: Rebels executive producer Greg Weisman, not that he really needs an introduction. You may recognize that name as the creator of Gargoyles, the supervising producer on The Spectacular Spider-Man, or for his recent work as the producer on Young Justice. Weisman is a cartoon juggernaut, so fans are understandably excited about his work on the new Star Wars cartoon hitting Disney XD in the fall of 2014. Before the introductions and such, Weisman talks about the show and where it falls in the movie timeline.
You can watch the short video below, but Weisman says the show takes place between Episode III and IV. It will lean more towards A New Hope in terms of tone. It will mainly explore the Rebel Alliance before they are THE Rebel Alliance. Throughout the entire video you can see some screens and concept art for the show in the background.
