Every May the 4th, Jedi and stormtroopers alike lay down their arms and come together to celebrate Star Wars. In this moment of galactic peace, Lucasfilm and Disney XD have seen fit to release a new trailer for their upcoming series, Star Wars Rebels. Taking place in the period between Episodes III and IV, Star Wars Rebels takes its visual inspiration from the original concept art developed by designer Ralph McQuarrie and Star Wars creator George Lucas during the initial creation of the Star Wars universe. Take a look at the new trailer right here:
Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion. The animated series is scheduled to premiere in the fall as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, and will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
