'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.
The other day 'Star Wars Rebels' lifted the veil just high enough to introduce us to the "Ghost" crew's feisty R2 unit "Chopper," but as tends to be the case with major blockbusters, now LEGO has delivered a much more revealing look at the new series with fresh images of the group's Millennium Falcon-like ship, and more!
While 'Star Wars Rebels' has nothing on the secrecy inherent to 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' fans of the eagerly anticipated animation follow-up to 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' have only thus far been treated to a solitary character. Now, the Dave Filoni-helmed 'Rebels' series chronicling the period between trilogies has unmasked our first heroic character, along with a few new details of the series' Outer Rim setting.
Chief among the excitement for 'Star Wars Rebels' is its ability to plumb the depths of periods mostly unexplored on film, particularly between the time between trilogies wherein the Empire cemented its power. The Imperials will be at their full strength when 'Star Wars Rebels' debuts later this year, and we've got the latest photo of classic Stormtroopers in action under the Inquisitor!
Much as we're anxious for a look at the newer, more "official" 'Star Wars' canon and the 'Star Wars Rebels' TV series to come, there can be no doubt that 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' left a number of threads dangling in both produced and unproduced material. Darth Maul's big return remains the biggest question mark, but we'll soon find out his fate in the last Dark Horse comic books!
For all its tremendous success, Marvel will take a massive chance this summer in introducing audiences to the 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' but with no knowledge of how a sequel could figure into Phase 3, might the comic studio look to extend the franchise with an animated series to join others on Disney XD?
The hype for 'Star Wars Rebels' really kicked off this past October with the reveal of its Jedi-hunting bad guy for a new generation, the villainous and menacing "Inquisitor," but with 2014 on the way, what more is there to know of the mysterious figure? Get a new look at the next 'Star Wars' animated series with fresh photos of the big lightsaber-wielding baddie to come!
It could be a while yet before 'Star Wars Rebels' premieres any official footage or major scoops post-New York Comic-Con, but a few new details of the premise have leaked out from executive producer Greg Weisman, including more on the new animated series' setting, and designs of both familiar and new locals for 'Star Wars' fans to enjoy.
We haven't heard much in the way of 'Star Wars' forthcoming animated series 'Star Wars Rebels' since New York Comic-Con, but it seems the recruitment process has begun. The latest poster for the animated follow-up to 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' wants you to join the Empire, so take a look!
This past weekend at New York Comic-Con lifted the veil on 'Star Wars' next TV iteration 'Star Wars Rebels' quite a bit, though Lucasfilm may be plotting even more phantom content than we might have realized. A new report suggests the company has begun plotting for two Darth Vader-themed TV specials potentially connected to the series, but what would they be about?
