Production is underway for a scheduled fall 2014 premiere. The announcement was made today by Eric Coleman, Senior Vice President, Original Series, Disney Television Animation.
A website designed to promote the upcoming Disney XD Star Wars series, ‘Star Wars Rebe;s,’ has recently popped up at sienarfleetsystems.com.

Promoting its primary product, the TIE Fighter, the poster promises that SFS’s objective is to produce ‘the latest in defense against threats to peace’ and to ‘bringing jobs and prosperity to Lothal.’

Frozen showings, which will run Nov. 22, 2013, to Jan. 5, 2014, will be preceded by ice carving performance artists on stage, as well as Frozen characters Anna and Elsa in their first live-on-stage appearances.
Production has begun on the first Disney Junior Original Movie, Lucky Duck, a music-filled, animated adventure at sea starring the voices of Christian Borle, Megan Hilty and Tom Cavanaugh. The movie follows a plucky rubber ducky named Lucky (Borle) who, after accidentally being tossed off a cargo ship, sets off in search of the perfect home. Along the way, he teams with a group of misfit tub toys including a sassy hippo, Flo (Hilty) and an apprehensive turtle named Snap (Cavanaugh). The movie is slated to premiere in summer 2014 on Disney Junior in the U.S. and thereafter on Disney Junior channels around the world. The announcement was made today by Joe D’Ambrosia, Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Junior.
