Our best wishes to legend Tim Curry as he recovers from a recent stroke. For those Bat-fans that don't know, Curry was originally cast as the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series, but his portrayl was considered "too dark" by show producers and he was replaced by Mark Hammil during production. He did lend his voice to Leon's Henchman and a Robot Clown in the series. He later portrayed Mutro Botha in an episode of Batman Beyond and more recently, Curry voiced G. Gordon Godfrey in Young Justice. Of course, most of us love Curry from his cult classic role as Dr. Frank - N - Furter in the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Get well soon Tim! »

This clip features Cyborg, voiced by Khary Payton – who brought us the unforgettable character of Aqualad on Yj – mourning the loss of Starfire’s “pet” Silkie. Payton reminds us what great voice acting is all about. Perhaps they can come up with an Emmy award for it, like “Most Dramatically Acted Scene in an Animated Series that’s Comedic.” Yeah, that’ll work.
There’s also a fun opening scene with Silkie on the beach in Mexico. The animation may remind me of The Powder Puff Girls, but I’m really starting to dig this new series.

Just after Cartoon Network aired the final episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars fifth season, it was announced that there would be no sixth for the award winning and critically acclaimed animated series. For some, this was not a huge surprise. Since Disney acquired Lucasfilm last summer, many had speculated on what would be the future of anything Star Wars related that would not be airing on any Disney owned channel.
For others, it was horrible news. The Clone Wars series was the most adult of all the animated products that were spun off from the movie franchise, and under the helm of a great creative team, showed that Star Wars could be fun, dangerous and well-written despite the baggage left by George Lucas and his prequel movie series. The show ran for five seasons on Cn, where it enjoyed good ratings and hundred plus episodes, which now made it available to aired daily. »

Earlier this year, Disney pulled the plug on Star Wars The Clone Wars, the well done Star Wars show on Cartoon Network. Since its cancellation we've know that they were working on a brand new show and that Dave Filoni (the CW supervising director) was already getting prepped for that. Now Disney has officially announced the new cartoon show, set in the 20 year gap between Episode 3 and 4, is in production and will debut on Disney Xd in Fall 2014. Come inside for all the details.
We knew it Disney wouldn't wait long before unveiling their next TV series for Star Wars. As popular as the Clone Wars was, and considering they already mentioned they were working on something new, it was only a matter of time before they came out with something official. Today they bring word of Star Wars Rebels, a brand new cartoon show that is set to fill »

The action-filled series is set between the events of Episode III and IV -- an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen. Star Wars Rebels takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape. Details about the show are a closely guarded secret at this point.
This could be a great series! It's definitely a solid setting. Even though it's not confirmed, it's safe to assume that Darth Vader is going to be the main villain in the story, »

Shortly after Disney acquired Lucasfilm a number of projects in development at the studio were either canceled outright or locked up in a dark closet somewhere (like Seth Green's off-color spoof series "Star Wars Detours"). One of those projects that was quietly canceled was the long-running "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" TV series, which debuted in 2008 on the Cartoon Network and had gained a healthy following in the years that followed, amassing more than 100 episodes. Fans were promised that a new, altogether different series would be announced soon, though, and today that has come to pass. New computer-animated series "Star Wars Rebels" has been announced, to air on Disney Xd in fall 2014. This, admittedly, sounds pretty cool. "Star Wars Rebels" will be set in the period of time between "Star Wars: Episode III" and "Star Wars: Episode IV." In a brief promotional video on the Star Wars website, you »

Soon after Disney acquired Lucasfilm, the axe was put to the popular animated TV series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The show was nixed because it was created before the acquisition, and aired on Cartoon Network as opposed to Disney's kids channel, Disney Xd. But we knew a replacement wouldn't be far behind, and now the studio has announced that production is underway on the new animated series, Star Wars Rebels. Simon Kinberg (who also working on a Star Wars spin-off/standalone film) will executive produce and write the screenplay for the one-hour series premiere. Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and Greg Weisman (Young Justice) will also executive produce (i.e. these two will probably be the showrunners). The series will take place during the twenty years between Episode III and Episode IV, and shows "a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and »

The animated show is due to premiere next year with a one-hour special on the Disney channel, followed by a regular slot on Disney Xd.So no, it's not the long-discussed live-action series, but this will still explore a new facet of the Star Wars universe.

Star Wars Rebels, a one-hour animated pilot already in production at Lucasfilm, is scheduled to premiere in Fall 2014 on the Disney Channel before the new brand leaps to Disney Xd for the ongoing series, according to Lucasfilm sources.
The series will mine material from the 19 years that follow Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and precede the Episode IV: A New Hope. In other words, using the life of the Skywalker twins as a measure, the series will be active in the story years that come after their separation as newborns and before their (unwitting) reunion on the prison level of the Death Star. »
