We’ve just received word from Lucasfilm that a short teaser for the highly-anticipated animated series “Star Wars Rebels” will air this coming Monday during the premiere of “Mighty Med” on Disney XD. Tune in on Monday at 8:30 ET/PT to catch the teaser, but if you can’t, don’t worry, it’ll be online shortly after.
The series is set between the events of Episode III and IV — an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen. It takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.
“Star Wars Rebels” will be produced by Lucasfilm Animation, featuring many of the key talents that made “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” It is scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, and will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
