Disney Consumer Products has unveiled an intergalactic assortment of products for the new Disney XD animated TV series "Star Wars Rebels," which will debut Oct. 3 on Disney Channel and continue on Disney XD starting Oct. 13.

With all-new adventures and characters, "Star Wars Rebels," which is set between the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode VI: A New Hope, will introduce a new generation of fans to the Star Wars galaxy.

The consumer products lineup includes new lines of figures, spaceships, lightsabers, apparel, accessories, home décor, books and more from licensees including Hasbro, LEGO, Mad Engine, Rubie's and Jay Franco.

"'Star Wars Rebels' extends the franchise's legendary storytelling while refreshing nostalgic play patterns with a new audience," says Josh Silverman, executive vice president of global licensing, DCP. "With updated classics like multi-functional lightsabers and buildable spacecraft, kids will be able to recreate the epic galactic space fantasy that has been shared by multiple generations."

Highlights from the product line include:

  • Action Figures and Role Play–action figures and an Inquisitor Lightsaber with an attachable second blade from Hasbro as well as The Ghost buildable ship from LEGO.

  • Apparel–costumes inspired by the Star Wars Rebels characters from Rubie's; character-inspired tees from Mad Engine and PJ Pals pajama sets by Disney Store.

  • Décor–Defeat The Empire bedding set from Jay Franco; wall decals from York Wallcoverings; and propaganda posters inspired by the epic rivalry between the Empire and the rebels from Trends.

  • Accessories­–a lunchbox and FUNtainer Bottle from Thermos; vinyl binders from Disney Store featuring the characters from Star Wars Rebels; a Hera iPhone case from Disney Store; a Stormtrooper-themed stainless steel watch by MZB; and a scooter from Huffy.

In addition to the collection of Star Wars Rebels products available at Disney Store locations across the U.S., DisneyStore.com will feature a Create Your Own tab that allows fans to personalize a variety of items from tech accessories and school supplies to apparel and party invitations.

Star Wars Rebels is also supported by Disney Publishing Worldwide with a new book program and series of interactive mobile apps from Disney Lucasfilm Press,  which expand upon the Star Wars Rebels series. The first wave of Star Wars Rebels books includes Star Wars Rebels: A New Hero by Pablo Hidalgo, an action-packed picture book that uses dynamic concept art from the show, and Star Wars Rebels: Servants of the Empire, an original chapter book series written by Jason Fry.

"Star Wars Journeys," an episodic series of apps from Disney Publishing, will be updated this October to include the stories that lead up to the action-packed adventures in "Star Wars Rebels." Then in early 2015, "Star Wars Scene Maker: Rebels" will launch to feature the locations and characters from the series, giving fans a user-generated storytelling experience that allows them to re-imagine and re-create scenes from "Star Wars Rebels."
