STAR WARS REBELS Propaganda Poster And Official Plot Blurb Released
Tomorrow we will learn a little more about the highly secretive Star Wars Rebels at the Star Wars panel at New York Comic Con, but ahead of tomorrow’s official news a few teasers and tidbits have hit the web. EW unveiled a Stormtrooper propaganda poster for the new cartoon series. It’s written in Aurebesh, but all good Star Wars fans will know it says “Be A Part Of Tomorrow Today” (I looked up the Aurebesh alphabet online, don’t get too impressed).
Along with the poster comes a more official synopsis for the series from Lucasfilm. The only things we know for sure is that the series will be set between the prequel and the original trilogies. It will kick off in the fall of 2014 with a one-hour special on the Disney Channel and then the actual series will air on Disney XD. The cartoon is influenced by original Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie. It is produced by Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg, and Greg Weisman. What do you think of the new Star Wars Rebels tidbits? Stay tuned tomorrow for a lot more about the show.
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.
