We’ve been keeping you updated on Star Wars Rebels, but there’s nothing like hearing it straight from those involved. Luckily, Jessica Chobot caught up with executive producers Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg and cast members Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Freddie Prinze, Jr., Taylor Gray, and Tiya Sircar at Comic-Con to get the lowdown on the animated series. They discuss the overall tone of Star Wars Rebels, the strong influences of Ralph McQuarrie’s art, and what you can expect to see in the first season. The cast also discusses what it’s like to become part of the Star Wars universe, and their comments are endearing.
To get a taste of what Star Wars Rebels is like, watch the first seven minutes of the first episode.
