“The Jedi have been wiped out and the Empire spreads tyranny through the galaxy. Hope runs thin. But on the small planet of Lothal a big change is looming. A group of rebels meet a 14-year-old con artist named Ezra and soon it’s clear their destinies are linked. Aboard their ship, the Ghost, Ezra and the rebels embark on an adventure to ignite a rebellion and strike back against the Empire.”

That’s the setup for the upcoming Disney XD series, Star Wars: Rebels. It’s coming later this year, and now we’ve gotten our hands on an extended trailer:

The new animated series will take place between Episodes III and IV of the saga, effectively bridging the gap between the prequel and original series. It will also feature several key members of the team behind the revered animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars
