Star Wars Rebels: Meet Greg Weisman, Executive Producer
Jay Cochran - December 03, 2013


Greg Weisman, executive producer of Star Wars Rebels, chats with StarWars.com about Lucasfilm's upcoming animated series, his career journey, and more.



Star Wars Rebels leans towards Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope in terms of tone, Weisman explains, and shows the early days of the Rebellion. When the series begins, the Rebellion is not yet organized, and the series will show how the Alliance forms over the course of seasons. "That is tremendously exciting," he says.

Weisman says he is a longtime geek, having read comics from a young age and getting his start as an editorial assistant at DC Comics. He worked his way up to associate editor and then transitioned into animation, eventually creating the Gargoyles cartoon for Walt Disney Television Animation, and recently worked on Young Justice.

Weisman saw Star Wars for the first time in 1977, when he was 13 years old, and loved it -- but The Empire Strikes Back stands as his favorite film the series. "Empire...blew my mind," he says, and also talks about his favorite Star Wars character and scene.

Despite all the hard work that goes into it, Weisman is very excited about Star Wars Rebels. "It's just really cool," he says.

Finally got a chance to sit down and watch the entire first season, and I'm glad I gave it a chance. *SPOILER* I was surprised by the way the season ended. I really thought they would kill off Kanan for some reason.

Yeah I didn't pick up till late in season 1, after catching a few episodes I kinda got hooked.  Then once season 2 started it really got good.  So I would say definitely give it a chance DarthJoe

No way this is for kids Well my point was, it seems that way if you only go by the first four episodes or so. Clone Wars was a lot the same way if I recall. The trailers for season 2 and 3 make it look a lot more interesting.

I tried watching this when it first started and couldn't get into it. It seemed like it was more for little kids. After watching that trailers for season 2 and 3, I might have to give it anther shot...
