Trailering Star Wars Rebels

Coinciding with its Comic-Con activities, Disney/Lucasfilm has released an extended trailer for the animated Star Wars Rebels.

Star Wars Rebels takes place between Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope, which spans two decades. The animated series is set “in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.”

Star Wars Rebels will premiere in the fall as a one-hour special on Disney Channel before debuting as a series on sister channel Disney XD worldwide. Freddie Prinze Jr., Taylor Gray, Steve Blum, Tiya Sircar, Vanessa Marshall, Jason Isaacs, David Oyelowo and Billy Dee Williams are the voice stars.

Disney will preview Star Wars Rebels at San Diego’s Comic-Con with a special screening on Thursday at 8:30 pm at the Gaslamp Reading Cinemas, as well as a panel session with the creative team (including exec producers Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg) and voice stars that day at 6 p.m. in Room 6BCF.
