Disney is set to release an animated “Star Wars” movie this summer! Disney CEO Bog Iger revealed that just before the “Star Wars Rebels” TV show arrives it will be introduced through an animated movie arriving on the Disney Channel!

Bob told the press:

As with Marvel, the rich universe of ‘Star Wars’ has tremendous creative potential for the entire company. While the world eagerly awaits ‘Episode VII’ to open in theaters, we’re introducing ‘Star Wars Rebels’ to television audiences this summer with a movie and a series of shorts on Disney Channel, followed by a continuing series on Disney XD. Our success in building a robust pipeline of original ‘Star Wars’ content for various platforms will be an integral part of our long-term strategy to leverage the franchise across a variety of our businesses, from theme parks to consumer products.

Sounds like a fun way to kick off the new “Star Wars Rebels” TV series!
