“Star Wars Rebels,” a new animated series from Disney and Lucasfilm, is set in the time between Star Wars: Episode III and IV as the Empire tightens its grip on the galaxy and a rebellion begins to form. The series is scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel which will be followed by the regular series on Disney XD.
Here’s the first trailer for the show:
Like Star Wars: The Clone Wars, this show will occupy the space between two fixed points in the official Star Wars canon. It will be interesting to see how it develops and widens that world now that the expanded universe has been set aside.
Although I found Clone Wars a bit too kid oriented for my tastes, I definitely plan to give Star Wars Rebels a fair audition in our household. How about you?
