The first full official trailer for the sci-fi action adventure series Star Wars Rebels was released by Disney on Sunday morning. The video advertises the upcoming broadcast on the Disney XD channel and includes a variety of heretofore unseen footage, including a first look at the villainous Sith Inquisitor and the main cast of the show in action.
Star Wars Rebels will premiere with a one-hour special broadcast on the Disney Channel prior to its regular run on Disney XD this Fall. The series takes place in the years preceding Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, at a time when rebellion against the rule of the Galactic Empire first begins to arise. Star Wars: The Clone Wars supervising director Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class, Sherlock Holmes, Mr. & Mrs. Smith) and Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, Young Justice, The Spectacular Spider-Man) are credited as executive producers on the show.
