Star Wars Rebels gets the green light for season 2 a day before the series is set to premiere on television. Hit the jump for the full story…

 

From starwars.com :

“One day ahead of a highly-anticipated television premiere, Disney Channels Worldwide President and Chief Creative Officer Gary Marsh announced plans to produce a second season of the animated series Star Wars Rebels from Lucasfilm.”  

 

“Marsh said, “The global expectations for this series could not have been any higher. And I am proud to say that the team at Lucasfilm has delivered something that has surpassed even that incredibly high bar – artistically and thematically.”  

 

“Star Wars Rebels has received acclaim from critics and fans alike since its advance debut screening at San Diego Comic-Con in July, followed by special previews this week on WATCH Disney XD and other digital platforms. Star Wars Rebels will be introduced via a television movie, Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, premiering Friday, October 3 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel in the U.S. and Monday, October 6 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD in the U.S. It ushers in the series beginning Monday, October 13 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD in the U.S. The series will air in 34 languages across 163 countries in over 400 million households”

 

 

Greg Weisman

 

UPDATE!

 

Also according to IGN Greg Weisman Leaves Star Wars Rebels:

 

Notably absent from Lucasfilm’s press release that list was Greg Weisman, who had previously been listed as an executive producer as well.

 

As it turns out, Rebel Force Radio had already broken the news earlier this week that Weisman, known for Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man and Young Justice, has indeed left the series. While he is an executive producer on Season 1, Season 2 will continue without him.

 

Also of note is the addition of Henry Gilroy in an ongoing role on Rebels. Gilroy was a big part of Star Wars: The Clone Wars early on, working alongside Filoni and many others who have since transitioned from that animated series to Rebels. Gilroy has written for Season 1 of Rebels — including a very strong episode that I’ve seen at a screening that will air early on — but it seems has a more prominent title as the show moves forward.
