'Star Wars Rebels' Full Trailer Debuts on May the Fourth (Video)
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.
