details-for-phineas-and-ferb-and-star-wars-mash-up-headerWith the official San Diego Comic-Con schedule likely to begin being announced this afternoon, you’d think that panel announcements are almost over – but far from it. Variety is currently reporting several Disney and Disney XD television panels, including the previously announced Star Wars Rebels, as well as Wander Over YonderGravity Falls, and Phineas and Ferb. While this may not be the complete list, we think it’s pretty darn close.

With the exception of Star Wars Rebels, which debuts this fall, each of those series have been to Comic-Con before.

Wander Over Yonder will kick off the Disney Channel and Disney XD’s Comic-Con plans on Thursday, with stars Jack McBrayer, April Winchell, and Tom Kenny joining executive producer Craig McCracken for “exclusive clips” and sneak peaks of two new animated shows, which Variety didn’t name.

The Phineas and Ferb panel will land on Saturday, July 26 – just hours before the Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars special airs on The Disney Channel that evening at 9PM ET, giving attendees a behind-the-scenes look at the special before anyone else, and also giving a sneak peek at other upcoming episodes. This will miss Comic-Con’s (somewhat unofficial) Star Wars Day on Friday, July 25, but it’s still the perfect place to promote the special.

Gravity Falls will also be returning to San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, with Executive Producer Alex Hirsch bringing along stars Kristen Schaal, Jason Ritter, and Thurop Van Orman for clips and previews of the show’s upcoming season.

From Variety, here’s the panel lineups:
