Admittedly as much as we try, it’s darn next to impossible — actually probably right on top of impossible — to keep up with every single detail of every single project under the Disney umbrella — though we try! That’s why it came as a bit of a shock to us when we saw this cover for an upcoming 176-page original novel titled ”Star Wars Rebels Servants of the Empire: Edge of the Galaxy’ based on the upcoming Disney XD series.
Disney Television Animation is in development on ‘Haunted Mansion,’ a special for Disney Channel and Disney XD inspired by the popular Disney Parks attraction.

The television animation studio continues to add to its deep roster of world-class artists and creators with three pilots and a new short-form series from Aaron Springer, Jhonen Vasquez and Jenny Goldberg, Jesse LeDoux and Matt Olsen and Ryan Quincy, all currently in production for Disney XD. The studio has also extended an overall deal with Emmy Award-winning ‘Phineas and Ferb’ co-creator and executive producer Dan Povenmire for development on new projects.

Yesterday, Lucasfilm introduced a new character from its upcoming animated series, ‘Star Wars Rebels’ — Agent Kallus, an Imperial Security Bureau (ISB) agent. Voiced by David Oyelowo, Kallus is described a ‘ruthless, unforgiving, and an example of the Empire’s tyranny.’ Also described as a ‘rebel hunter,’ Kallus’ position is on the ground, leading stormtroopers in face-to-face battles against anti-Imperial groups — and his combat skills are impressive, including the use of a modified version of Zeb’s honor guard staff.
