'Star Wars': first teasers for new animated series 'Rebels' hit the web (Video)

By Daniel S Levine,

The first two teasers for Star Wars: Rebels, the first animated series from Lucasfilm after Disney took over, hit the web on Monday.

Both 30-second teasers showcase a young new Star Wars character named Ezra, voiced by Taylor Gray, notes The Los Angeles Times. Actor Freddie Prinze Jr. is voicing Kanan, a new Jedi character, while the Inquisitor is a new villain Darth Vader enlists to help him track down the rest of the Jedi Order. The series is set 14 years after Revenge of the Sith, just four years before A New Hope.

With the show taking place so close to the start of the Original Trilogy, Dave Feloni (The Clone Wars) and his team have based their designs on concept art from Ralph McQuarrie and others. The show was announced back in May 2013 and will premiere on Disney XD this fall.

Meanwhile, the last Star Wars animated series, The Clone Wars, will be posted on Netflix on March 7. The sixth and final season will also be released exclusively on Netflix.
