Disney XD has released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming animated Star Wars Rebels television series. As you know, Rebels is set during the two-decade period between Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV – A New Hope. The series will center around a teen character, and chronicle the birth of the Rebel Alliance. We also know that Ralph McQuarrie ’s original Star Wars concept art is a big inspiration for the series. The teaser trailer doesnt reveal much more, but we do get to see a ship and learn “the jedi will rise.” Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump.
Disney will have a panel for Star Wars Rebels at New York Comic Con this coming weekend, so hopefully we’ll learn more about the project soon. Star Wars Rebels will premiere with a one-hour special on Disney Channel in Fall 2014 before moving to its permanent home on Disney XD.
