Earlier this year, Disney and Lucasfilm announced a new animated Star Wars series titled Star Wars Rebels. The series is set to air in the fall of 2014 on the Disney XD channel.
The show will be set between Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. The Emperor, along with a newly re-made Darth Vader, will continue to consolidate power across the galaxy while a small faction of rebels begins to form.
Today Lucasfilm provided the very first teaser for Rebels in the form of a trailer. Though the production company is still staying tight-lipped about the show, the teaser does feature a star destroyer of the design seen in the original Star Wars trilogy. This could be a hint that the series will have more in common with A New Hope than Revenge of the Sith.
More information about Star Wars Rebels is set to be revealed this week at New York Comic Con. The Star Wars Rebels panel at that event will reveal new art and new details about the growing Empire depicted in the upcoming series.
