'Star Wars Rebels' Full Trailer Debuts on May the Fourth (Video)
A 60-second teaser sets up the upcoming Disney animated series, which is slated for a fall launch.
May the Fourth be with you.
Disney's anticipated animated series Star Wars Rebels has unveiled its first full trailer on Star Wars Day. The minute-long teaser will premiere during Disney XD's airing of Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles at 7 p.m. PT/ET.
The trailer sets up the world in which Star Wars Rebels takes place: "In a time of darkness, when fear ruled the galaxy, heroes will rise, destinies will collide and a rebellion will ignite." Flashes of main characters, key dialogue (including that final scene with the villainous Inquisitor) and battle sequences offer just a hint of what Disney and Lucasfilm have in store.
Star Wars Rebels takes place between Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV -- A New Hope, which spans about 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.
