To coincide with Star Wars Day, Disney XD just dropped the trailer for their upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels. The series is a prequel to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, which takes place directly after the dark and depressing Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
The series premiere kicks off next fall with a special one-hour episode on the Disney Channel. Afterwards, the rest of the series will air exclusively on Disney XD. And yes, even if LucasArts recently reorganized the entire Star Wars timeline, this will be canon.
If the forthcoming series is anything like the beloved-but-cancelled Star Wars: The Clone Wars, this shit is gonna be dope. Even though it’s airing on Disney, it’s sure to appeal to adult audiences.
And needless to say, May the Fourth be with you and yours.
