Star Wars Rebels will debut on the anniversary of the start of the last Star Wars animated series, The Clone Wars in 2008. On October 3, 2014, Disney Channel will play host to the one-hour premiere of Rebels subtitled “Spark of Rebellion.” The show will kick off with an hour-long pair of episodes at 9pm.
After the premiere, the show will move to its regular day and time: Monday nights at 9pm on Disney XD, beginning with the third episode on October 13, 2014. As far as genre TV goes, that puts the series up against Sleepy Hollow on Fox.
