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.
