Lucasfilm Animation is Staffing Up for a New Star Wars Series

We all knew it was coming, but Lucasfilm Animation is hiring a lot of people for a new episodic TV series. With Rebels ending in another month or so, it will be a long time before we see or even hear about this series as people at Lucasfilm have hinted that such an announcement wouldn’t come until the next Celebration, which is in 2019.

Lucasfilm Animation is looking for a Storyboard Artist, Concept Designer, Director, and an Associate Editor right now. But there will likely be even more as things ramp up over the next year.

Although the series won’t be announced until next year at Celebration, it probably won’t be a long wait until we see it as it’s likely to launch on Disney’s streaming service in the latter half of 2019. The only question now is where the series is set, although post-ROTJ does make the most sense with Episode IX releasing that December and the Sequel Trilogy coming to an end.
