With the cast of the rebel crew fully revealed and the premiere set for autumn, there is still so much more we want to know about Star Wars Rebels. So far, we have been introduced to the executive producers, the main voice cast, and other creative members of the crew.
At Star Wars Celebration Europe II back in late July 2013, Dave Filoni shared the official Star Wars Rebels logo as well as other intriguing details that have become clearer over time. This event was followed by New York Comic Con in October 2013 when Pablo Hidalgo and Dave Filoni (via recording) unveiled “The Inquisitor” at the Star Wars Rebels: The Might of the Empire panel, where we also saw various concept art of Imperial vehicles and spacecraft. Earlier this year, both the Nuremberg Toy Fair and New York Toy Fair displayed a range of new Star Wars Rebels toys and divulged the identities of new characters.
Since then, the fan community has been craving for more details: who is going to voice the Inquisitor? Who is Agent Kallus? How often will we see Darth Vader and Darth Sidious? Etc. As we make our way through the convention season, Jedi News recently discovered that Star Wars Rebels will have a panel at WonderCon Anaheim 2014 on Saturday, April 19.
Behind the Scenes of Star Wars Rebels
Members of the cast and crew of Star Wars Rebels present an exclusive look at the highly anticipated television series. Star Wars Rebels is set between Episodes III and IV, and it is a dark time in the galaxy. In the spirit of the original trilogy, the Empire is once again the preeminent villain of the saga, and Star Wars Rebels puts the might of Imperial forces in the spotlight. Produced by Lucasfilm Animation and featuring many of the key talents from the Emmy Award-winning Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels is scheduled to premiere this fall as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel; it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
Saturday April 19, 2014 2:00pm – 3:00pm
Although no new details surfaced from the description, it does mention that individuals from the cast and crew will present exclusive material. There is no indication whether this will be done in person or through video format. It could have a similar setup to NYCC 2013 with Pablo Hidalgo as the speaker and a video of the crew revealing new content. A fan approached Tiya Sircar, who will voice Mandalorian weapons expert and tagger Sabine Wren, about the event:

Other similar questions to cast and crew on Twitter have received no response.
Since Greg Weisman will be attending a meetup at WonderCon, we can assume he will be involved in the Rebels panel.
