Just in time for International Star Wars Day, Disney and Lucasfilm have released the first full length trailer for their upcoming animated show — Star Wars Rebels. Premiering this fall on Disney XD, Star Wars Rebels marks the first on-screen entry into Disney’s very newly established cannon, as they prepare for next years highly anticipated Episode: VII.
The show will be set 5 BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin), between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and star a collection of rebels aboard the ship Ghost. The series will be produced by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Avatar: The Last Airbender), Simon Kinberg (Jumper, Mr. & Mrs. Smith), and Greg Weisman (Young Justice). Weisman recently had this to say to Star Wars Insider:
“…we’re going to really show the origins of the rebellion. When our series begins, it’s not the Rebel Alliance yet; we start with a group of rebels. It’ll be really interesting to show the progress of the Alliance forming…“
