Star Wars Rebels Disney XD

Disney has announced that they will be bringing “Star Wars” to TV as an animated series in Fall of 2014.

The series will kick off with a 1 hour special on The Disney Channel followed by the regular series on Disney XD.

Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm said:

I couldn’t be more excited to explore new corners of the Star Wars universe. I think Star Wars Rebels will capture the look, feel and fun that both kids and their parents love about Star Wars.

We already know that Disney has some big plans for their purchase of the “Star Wars” universe including numerous movies guided by J.J. Abrams and possibly even a corner of the Disney parks if the Tomorrowland rumors end up being true.

How do you feel about a “Star Wars” series geared toward a younger audience on Disney XD?
