Go Behind the Scenes of Star Wars Rebels (Concept Art + Video)

By Pilar Clark |

Shine up those lightsabers, Jedis. Production has begun on Star Wars Rebels.

Star Wars Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni (who served as supervising director of the Emmy Award-winning Star Wars: The Clone Wars) pulled back the curtain on Lucasfilm Animation’s highly anticipated animated series during Star Wars Celebration Europe, talking about original Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie’s major influence on the look and feel of the new show.

And while details have been chained up tighter than Princess Leia in Jabba’s Palace, we do know that the action-filled series is set between the events of Episode III and IV — an era spanning almost two decades that has never been explored on screen before. It’s a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.

Star Wars Rebels won’t make its television debut until fall 2014 — broadcast as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, followed by a series on Disney XD — but until then, we do have some concept art to get us by:
