Disney XD has released four new Star Wars Rebels images. The animated series will take place about 14 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith and centers on the fledgling rebellion as the Empire hunts down the last of the Jedi Knights to secure rule of the galaxy. We got the first clip from the series a couple weeks ago, and now Disney has announced that the first trailer will be released on Star Wars Day (May 4th). According to the press release, the trailer will play on Disney XD during LEGO’s Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles at 7:00 p.m., ET/PT. It will also air on Disney’s other channels—Disney Channel, ABC, ABC Family, Fusion, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3—at varying times throughout the day. You can catch the trailer online starting at 12:01am PST on May 4th on www.StarWars.com, www.ABC.com, www.ESPN.com and www.Disney.com.
Hit the jump to check out the new images. Star Wars Rebels will premiere this fall as a one-hour special telecast on the Disney Channel, and will be followed by a series on Disney XD.
