With all the excitement around the announcement of the Star Wars Episode VII cast, Disney and Lucasfilm have also found time to give us some more goodies on a project that we're going to see long before that December 2015 release.
Star Wars: Rebels is the new animated series that will span the timeframe between the end of Episode III and Episode IV, with the Empire hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights while the earliest seeds of the Rebellion begin to sprout. With the series scheduled to premiere this fall, Disney has announced that a first trailer will arrive this Sunday (May 4) on Disney XD during LEGO’s Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT.
In case you can't see it there, well, here's the list of other Disney outlets that will air it at various times: Disney Channel, ABC, ABC Family, Fusion, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3. You can also catch it at www.StarWars.com, www.ABC.com, www.ESPN.com and www.Disney.com.
While you await the trailer, see below for a clip that was shown at WonderCon along with four new images posted by USA Today. Star Wars: Rebels will kick off its run with a one-hour special on the Disney Channel before settling into its regular slot on Disney XD.
