The teases for the upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated series are starting to flow now. The Empire has started an assault on the Rebel forces; a
propagan -- uh -- promotional assault. A series of recruitment posters flooded the Star Wars Twitter feed:
Each of the tweets included a link to the Empire Magazine website (dun dun duuuun!) which identified the art as being a set of limited edition cards going out to 2500 people around the world.
In other Star Wars Rebels news, though it has been announced that Star Wars Rebels would premiere in Fall 2014, it's now being reported that the world might get a glimpse during the Summer in the form of a movie. This was announced in a Disney shareholder letter:
"…we’re introducing Star Wars Rebels to television audiences this summer with a movie and a series of shorts on Disney Channel, followed by a continuing series on Disney XD."
Star Wars Rebels is an upcoming animated series (and movie apparently) taking place during the period between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, mostly set on the planet Lothal. This is during Imperial rule and the formation of the Rebel Alliance. We'll see the series this Fall, and apparently a movie this Summer.
