There is a lot of excitement about Stars Wars again. Most of it centers around the relaunch of the Stars Wars movie brand with an Episode VII movie set to be released in 2015 and directed by J.J. Abrams.

This trailer is the first for the Star Wars: Rebels series, an animated series. It is set about 10 years before Episode IV, or the original Star Wars movie. The animation is inspired by the art of Ralph McQuarrie.

The trailer doesn’t reveal much, characters story line, or plot. It is just an empire space ship coming into view kind of like the beginning of Episode IV with a narrator talking.

“To battle the empire, a rebel alliance will form. The Jedi will rise. And you will know the power of the force,” the narrator says.

The trailer says the series will air in 2014, on the Disney XD. It clearly is being targeted towards a younger audience by being aired on Disney XD. This is something people expected to happen when Disney acquired the franchise from George Lucas.

There will be a lot of grown men searching for the the Disney channel on their cable providers now.
