‘Star Wars Rebels’ Trailer Coming May 4, New Poster and Photos Debut
Sure, there may have been some bigger 'Star Wars' news today, but those wondering when the trilogy-bridging 'Star Wars Rebels' might finally debut a proper trailer are in luck. The latest look at Disney XD's new animated take on the 'Star Wars' universe will arrive on "Star Wars Day," of course, though a new poster and photos are available right now!
The latest trailer for 'Star Wars Rebels' will debut this Sunday, May 4 (May the 4th be with you), hopefully proving much more in-depth than the recent clip or the initial teasers. Previously, we met the "Ghost" pilot Hera (Vanessa Marshall), brutish and brilliant Zeb (Steve Blum), “cowboy Jedi” Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.) and the Luke Skywalker-esque Ezra Bridger (Noah Taylor), along with the crew’s feisty droid Chopper.
Picking up where the now-canceled ‘Clone Wars‘ left off, ‘Star Wars Rebels’ will feature screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg (‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘Elysium‘), who wrote the first episode, on the creative side. Elsewhere, here’s everything we know from the official ‘Star Wars Rebels’ logline:
‘Star Wars Rebels’ continues the epic tradition of the legendary ‘Star Wars’ saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people.
But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship “Ghost.” Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes.
In addition to a few new stills of the team, USA Today premiered two images of Stormtroopers and what looks to be the Mandalorian Sabine from behind. Check them all out below, and stay tuned for news on the full trailer coming this Sunday!
