The Heroes of Star Wars Rebels: 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., Room 6BCF
The Empire. The Rebellion. The Beginning. Star Wars Rebels, Lucasfilm’s highly anticipated animated series detailing the start of the fight against the evil Empire, is coming this fall — but fans can get a big sneak peek at San Diego Comic-Con.

Lucasfilm’s special panel, The Heroes of Star Wars Rebels, will feature executive producer Dave Filoni, as well as the first panel appearance by executive producer Simon Kinberg and stars Freddie Prinze, Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Tiya Sircar, and Taylor Gray. They’ll discuss making the show and will reveal exclusive content from the upcoming series for fans in attendance.

Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.

Scheduled to premiere in the fall as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.


With Star Wars: Episode VII creators deep in production in anticipation of the film’s December 18, 2015, release, Lucasfilm will not be featuring the movie at SDCC.

Nothing important happens until Saturday anyways.
Doopie - 7/8/2014, 3:15 PM
origami?
ALegendaryPanda - 7/8/2014, 3:16 PM
No episode 7 footage?? That's kinda lame.
TheAbaryMan369 - 7/8/2014, 3:17 PM
What is the point of having Star Wars at SDCC if the new movie isn't even going to be featured? Can't you just add an extra few minutes and talk about it a bit? Maybe bring in the cast since they are reportedly taking a two week break anyway... Just do something!
SamuraiBat96 - 7/8/2014, 3:19 PM
It will probably have a panel at 2015's Comic Con Guys.
Doopie - 7/8/2014, 3:20 PM
they could be fooling us...

well, you guys anyway - I'm not fooled
EzioKenway1225 - 7/8/2014, 3:20 PM
it sucks that we wont get any episode 7 footage..hopefully they are maybe keeping it a surprise like the wb/dc team seems to be keeping their dc news a surprise ,on the upside,im excited for Rebels,i think it looks quite good
NICKHART - 7/8/2014, 3:21 PM
that sucks, not surprised though. hopefully they're hiding something
TheAbaryMan369 - 7/8/2014, 3:21 PM
@Doopie
Yes. Apparently they will have an hour long panel about origami at SAN DIEGO COMIC CON but can't find room for a panel on the NEXT FREAKING STAR WARS MOVIE.

Amazing logic
MsDarkPhoenix - 7/8/2014, 3:22 PM
Lol origami.
vinnyg5697 - 7/8/2014, 3:22 PM
In all honesty, this could be Disney and Lucasfilm messing with the fans. I gonna make a prediction that there will be a surprise appearance from Episode VII. Also there was no mention of the stand-alone films. For all we know, they could surprise us with that. Odds are I am completely wrong, it would be awesome if Disney/Lucasfilm surprise us.
Nick56 - 7/8/2014, 3:23 PM
Hopefully DC/WB and Disney/LF are keeping announcements a surprise for the major stuff
Doopie - 7/8/2014, 3:23 PM
I really don't get the origami thing. Is it for real? I've never been to SDCC - do they do that kind of stuff?


once again though, this could all be lies
Doopie - 7/8/2014, 3:25 PM
I take back what I said about the origami - the materials are included!! there's a winning panel for you
Dandy - 7/8/2014, 3:37 PM
It's a J.J Abrams film...Good luck seeing anything.

He's always been secretive on his projects. Super 8 and Cloverfield's trailers revealed close to nothing about the movies.
CaptShipwreck - 7/8/2014, 3:39 PM
Damn
Pasto - 7/8/2014, 4:02 PM
Hehe...orgasms...
DarthGoodGuy - 7/8/2014, 4:36 PM
It's way too early to start hyping Episode VII anyways! It's still a year and a half out you don't want to blow your wad in one shot!
duey2000 - 7/8/2014, 4:42 PM
Because they don't have enough footage put together. Also they want you to go to the Star Wars Celebration next year, where they'll show some sneak peeks at Ep 7
ManDeth - 7/8/2014, 5:49 PM
So what? Like the movie needs a Comic Con presentation to be successful. All it would do is promote the con itself. It would not effect the movie except for to reveal too much too soon.
TheAbomination - 7/8/2014, 7:15 PM
No Episode VII stuff? Seems legit. The movie doesn't come out for another year and a half.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/8/2014, 7:53 PM
So is episode VII called A New Dawn or not?
Unionjack - 7/9/2014, 1:02 AM
@thedarkknight1939 - Think that this could be the case buddy
Danbojohnj - 7/9/2014, 7:47 AM

I spoil many too movies nowadays and Star Wars is precious to me(first film at age 4) so I want to stay as in the dark as possible.
