'Star Wars Rebels' had been kept largely a mystery since its announcement, beyond a time frame and a few scant setting details, but the animated series' presence at this past weekend's New York Comic-Con force-pushed the lid right off.

'Star Wars Rebels' will likely keep its cards close to the chest, even through tomorrow's New York Comic-Con panel, but that won't stop the new mid-trilogy animated drama from recruiting early.

Given all the world-shattering 'Star Wars' upheaval over the last year -- between Disney's purchase of the franchise, plans for future films, and the dissolution of 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' in favor of 'Star Wars Rebels' -- one item that seems to have been lost in the shuffle is that of the long-gestating live-action TV series.
