Latest Star Wars: Rebels Promo Video Puts Simon Kinberg In The Spotlight

Simon Kinberg is now a very important part of the Star Wars universe. As I understand it, he’s the co-creator and producer of Star Wars: Rebels, as well as a writer on its pilot episode. He’s also a “consultant” on Episode VII, and Episodes VIII and IX after it. And then, alongside all of this, he’s cooking up a spin-off movie that is expected to go into production in the next few years too.

If Star Wars succeeds in this next, Disney-powered generation, Kinberg will be due some of the credit. Of course, there’s a flip side to that equation too… but I think, actually, we’re onto something good. I think. I think. I hope.

This video from Lucasfilm introduces the man and puts him into a squarely Star Wars context. As an added bonus, he says a few things about Rebels‘ Inquisitor that might pique your interest.
