'Star Wars Rebels' Promos Reveal New Footage (Video)
Lucasfilm and Disney have released new teasers with actual footage from Star Wars Rebels.
This is the latest development in the drum-up to the fall premiere as both companies have slowly been rolling out the characters who will be featured in the animated television series, including one voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr.
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."
Two separate promos were cut in anticipation of premiering during Disney XD's Kickin' It and Lab Rats on Monday evening. Watch the new promos below.
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.
