It is finally here the release date for the much anticipated new Star Wars tv show, Star Wars Rebels. This year this show was the main focus of Star Wars Weekends with celebrities from the show appearing all five of the weekends. The show was also a big focus of San Diego Comic Con. Recently we have started seeing merchandise showing up in stores as well. Star Wars fans everywhere are all a buzz with the new show. The show will be airing on Disney XD this fall and here are the dates of the premiere.

In addition a press release was sent from Lucasfilm by Tracy Cannobio and in that press release were details on the DVD release for the one hour Spark of  Rebellion Movie which will be released on October 14th,2014.

“Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion” will be available to own on DVD in retailers nationwide. The DVD includes the movie, a free Ghost 3D model ship, four “Star Wars Rebels” shorts, plus a never-before-seen piece that takes you deeper into the world of “Star Wars Rebels” and the upcoming season.

The show will be airing in 34 languages across 163 countries and Star Wars fans around the world can not wait! I am fortunate enough to be able to access Watch Disney XD and this is the most exciting news I have heard in a long time. For those that do not know the show will be taking place between Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope. The show is centered around a group of rebels that are taking on the empire. This show will be showing us a time period previously off limits in the Star Wars universe and we just may see the way the Rebellion was formed. The show consists of a stellar cast of characters:
