Disney has released two teasers for their upcoming animated series, Star Wars Rebels.
Star Wars Rebels will kick off with its own animated movie before going to a full series this Fall.
This special Star Wars Rebels teaser, "Ignite," features exciting glimpses of new characters, locales, and surprises from the highly anticipated animated series.
In this new Star Wars Rebels teaser, "Spark," more exciting imagery from the upcoming animated series is revealed.
In Star Wars Rebels, Darth Vader enlists The Inquisitor to hunt down the last of the Jedi Knights. The series takes place about 14 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, a time in which the Emperor's rule is secure and the Empire is seeking to expand its power to Outer Rim territories. That leads Imperial forces to Lothal, a poor planet that initially welcomes the Empire on the promise of security and prosperity. It soon becomes obvious, however, that the Empire does not have Lothal's best interests at heart, as the Imperials exploit its people and begin recruiting young citizens to join TIE fighter and Stormtrooper academies, or to work in the Sienar Fleet Systems factory -- which builds TIE fighters -- in the planet's capital.
