‘Star Wars Rebels’ Preview: Join the Empire with New Propaganda Posters!

Star Wars‘ forthcoming animated series ‘Star Wars Rebels‘ has been keeping pretty coy with its character and plot specifics, though at least one overarching theme has been inescapable: The Empire is everywhere! A new round of promotional posters for the buzzworthy new series have emerged, tasking the galaxy’s finest to join up and serve on the imperial side.

Released through various outlets throughout the web, the newest round of ‘Star Wars Rebels’ posters closely adhere to the propaganda style that marked some of the early promotional art for the series, this time incorporating specific figures like the villainous Inquisitor, and the planet Lothal — which we know to be a central location for our mysterious band of heroes. If nothing else, we’re just thrilled to see some of the classic designs in play!

Here’s everything we know from the official ‘Star Wars Rebels’ logline:

‘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.

We’ve already met the crew’s feisty droid “Chopper,” and learned a few details from the LEGO packaging, but no voice cast has been made official. That said, we previously heard Freddie Prinze Jr., ‘The Butler’ star David Oyelowo, Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray and Steven Jay Blum were at least on the short list. Picking up where the now-canceled ‘Clone Wars‘ left off, ‘Star Wars Rebels’ will also feature on the creative side screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg (‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘Elysium‘), who’s writing the first episode.
