Last night we got the first teaser for the show, although it wasn’t much as in visual we got a good idea of what the show is going to be about. As the NYC Comic Con is coming to a start, we’re getting a little idea of what is to be expected at the panels. Recently we had heard a rumor about the show and its plot. The panel has not even started yet but the description of the panel shows what we are to expect to hear.
What happens when the Galactic Empire takes over a planet? What if Imperials took interest in your world, and garrisoned stormtroopers and TIE fighters to maintain order? Star Wars Rebels, the thrilling, all-new animated television series from Lucasfilm for Disney XD will ask those questions – and so will this panel hosted by Lucasfilm’s resident Star Wars expert, Pablo Hidalgo. Details on the show are closely guarded, but Fans at NYCC will get a first look at new art from the series, and learn new information about the formidable forces of the Galactic Empire. Star Wars Rebels is set between Episodes III and IV, and it is a dark time in the galaxy. In the spirit of the original trilogy, the Empire is once again the preeminent villain of the saga, and Star Wars Rebels puts the awesome might of Imperial forces in the spotlight. Luckily, there are those who are brave and daring enough to stand up against the oppressive Imperial might: the crew of the starship Ghost. Star Wars Rebels follows their adventures as they carry out thrilling missions against these dark forces. The series is still a year away, so don’t miss this chance to get an early look at its development.
Along with the panel we are expected to see more artwork from the show and hopefully a few short clips of the style of the show. The NY Comic Con is to hit this weekend so keep checking back for more updates!
