This Star Wars Rebels news may not be as big or exciting as the Star Wars: Episode VII casting news from yesterday but it's still worth mentioning. I'm excited about this new animated series, and we have four new photos from the series to share with you. It was also announced that a full trailer for the series would be released on May 4th, which as you all know is "May the 4th Be With You" day.
Disney XD will feature the Star Wars Rebels trailer during its premiere of LEGO's Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles at 7:00 p.m., ET/PT. If you're not watch that though, then we'll make sure to get the trailer up on GeekTyrant so you can watch it.
"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 series is set to debut as a one-hour special this fall on Disney Channel with an animated series to follow on Disney XD.
