As amusingly low-tech as that animated Patton rant was, this is going to be top of the line. Star Wars Rebels will be set between the trilogies, and based directly on Ralph McQuarrie's concept art. It will premiere next fall on the Disney Channel and move to Disney XD thereafter. European fans will get the first look in July.

Seems to me this bodes pretty well. I love the McQuarrie stuff, and it's the same creative types behind Clone Wars. Although it's interesting that when this show was hinted about, they said it would be a period never before explored...since Disneyland's updated Star Tours ride is supposedly set in that period.

More details here, and in the video below...
