Disney has released an awesome new trailer for their animated series Star Wars Rebels. Although the story takes place between the events of the prequels and the Original Trilogy, the look and feel seems to be closer in line with the classic films. Almost all of the other new Star Wars content that Disney has released over the last year seems to be doing the same thing, almost as if the studio is trying to distance the franchise from the prequels.
Star Wars Rebels will premiere this fall.
The Jedi have been wiped out and the Empire spreads tyranny through the galaxy. Hope runs thin. But on the small planet of Lothal a big change is looming. A group of rebels meet a 14-year-old con artist named Ezra and soon it’s clear their destinies are linked. Aboard their ship, the Ghost, Ezra and the rebels embark on an adventure to ignite a rebellion and strike back against the Empire.
