'Star Wars Rebels' Follow-Up Might Be Set During Third Trilogy


tar Wars Rebels is still in its early days, but, according to Slashfilm, Lucasfilm already has a follow-up in mind for Disney XD.

The site, which previously floated a possible plot for the Gary Whitta/Gareth Edwards Star Wars spinoff, points to an unnamed source, who contends Rebels will run "about" three to four seasons and then be replaced by a show set in the new timeline established in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The purported series would focus on new characters and debut in 2017 or 2018, depending on how long the seasons run. That would have the show airing around the time Episode VIII premieres.

Star Wars Rebels airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD.
