News about the Star Was Rebels animated series is slowly trickling out. Last week excutive producer Simon Kinberg talked about we might expect from the upcoming series. This week executive producer Dave Filoni chimed in, providing a few tidbits about Rebels:
- The Empire we know from the first trilogy is back and we'll see those ships in this show (not a surprise from the initial teases about this series)
- Rebels wlll have a faster pace and include more banter than in Filoni's previous Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series
- Most of the stories will take place on Lothal on the Outer Rim, described as a grassy planet with giant monolithic stones, and more civiilized than Tatooine
Having only revealed one character (The Inquisitor) so far, Filoni was ready to give some details on a new character: Chopper.
