STAR WARS REBELS Producer Dave Filoni Says a New Series Announcement is Coming Soon
As Star Wars Rebels is about to come to an end, fans have been wondering what we are going to see next. We all know that another series is coming, but what will it be!? What story will it tell!? According to Star Wars Rebels producer David Filoni, we'll find out soon.
During an interview with Animation Magazine, Filoni talked about his experience with working on Clone Wars and Rebels and in the process teased that an announcement is coming:
"George always treated our animation on Clone Wars the same way he treated film, it’s all part of his story. At times there’s a tendency to treat animation as an 'other' or as something for kids, and that’s not been my experience at Lucasfilm. We are telling stories and we happen to use the medium of animation to tell them.
"So I think that’s what the future holds. We have a lot of different ways to convey stories and we choose the best mediums and we are showing no sign of slowing, so the end of one thing always means the beginning of another, and soon people will learn what that other is."
There were rumors of Filoni developing a live-action series, but judging from these recent comments it sounds like he's going to stick with animation. He goes on to talk about what the message that they are trying to convey through these Star Wars series' saying:
"Luke’s whole message — and I think the message of Star Wars — is not to be of yourself but to be selfless, to find some sense of enlightenment and to inspire others to great action as well. So I try to work from those same themes throughout Rebels and show that there aren’t all these simple answers, but there is still good and evil and different ways to battle."
These past few episodes of Star Wars Rebels have been incredible. Some of the best of the series, and I can't wait to find out what they are going to do next.
