An interesting possible premiere date has surfaced for Star Wars Rebels this September via Direct TV.
An image shared with us via Twitter user @tatooinebreeze lists 9/30/14 as the start date for Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD.
There is a strong possibility that this is a placeholder date for the series in Direct TV’s listings. On the other hand it would make some sense given what has been announced for the show.
It has been confirmed that the series will premiere with a special on the Disney Channel first and then continue as the series proper on Disney XD.
September 30th is a Tuesday which would be an odd day for a premiere, one would figure a prime time Friday or Sunday night premiere for the show.
But if September 30th is a rebroadcast of the Disney Channel premiere on Disney XD then the date makes more sense and it could point to the weekend of Friday September 26th to Sunday September 28th as the premiere date on the Disney Channel.
As with all rumors take this with a grain of salt until we see some official confirmation from Lucasfilm. We should get an official announcement of a premiere date either at San Diego Comic-Con this July or during the Phineas and Ferb Star Wars special airing July 26th on Disney Channel and re-airing on August 4th on Disney XD. The August 4th rebroadcast of the Phineas and Ferb special will include a special preview of Star Wars Rebels.
