The very first promotional video for Lucasfilm Animation’s Star Wars Rebels premiered this evening on Disney XD and has also been posted on Starwars.com. The sixteen-second video depicts an Imperial Star Destroyer looming over a planet as a narrator speaks: “To battle the Empire a Rebel Alliance will form, the Jedi will rise, and you will know the power of The Force.” The teaser comes prior to New York Comic Con this week, where Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo will host a panel discussing the show on Saturday October 12th.
First announced in May 2013, Star Wars Rebels will cover events that took place between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The series is scheduled to premiere on the Disney Channel in fall 2014 prior to its regular airing on the Disney XD channel. Stay tuned to Toonzone News for the latest on Star Wars Rebels.
