On May 4th, 2014, national Star Wars day, Disney Channel announced that they will be broadcasting a new Star Wars Animated series called Star Wars Rebels. The series is animated by the same team who brought you the Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and is suppose to take place between the third and fourth episode.

The series will follow a motley group of rebels, the crew of the starship Ghost, and their struggles against the oppressive Galactic Empire. The Ghost’s crew consists of the Twi’lek pilot Hera Syndulla, the alien enforcer Zeb Orrelios, the Mandalorian Sabine Wren, the astromech droid Chopper, the former Jedi Kanan Jarrus, and the teenage con artist Ezra Bridger. It is said that it will tell the origin of the Rebel Alliance, as they rebel against the empire.

The series will premiere with a one hour special in Fall, 2014. The series will follow on Disney Channel and Disney XD. Prepare for a new form of Star Wars!
