Star Wars Rebels has been a hit for Disney XD. Fans have taken to it, and the fact that it will tie in o the new movies is kind of a big deal. It’s the first cartoon that will explore territory that is actively being expanded upon across films and literature as well. Disney and LucasFilm have now released an official trailer for the show’s second season, which you can check out right here:

This animated entry in the “Star Wars” franchise fills the gap between the events of “Episode III” and “Episode IV.” Imperial forces occupy a remote planet and are ruling — and ruining — its inhabitants’ lives with an iron fist. A clever, disparate crew aboard the starship Ghost takes a stand against the Empire, facing new villains and colorful adversaries. The rebels on the Ghost include leader Kanan, ace pilot Hera, feisty heroine Sabine, tough guy Zeb and 14-year-old con artist Ezra.

Over the weekend, it was revealed that Rebels and Gareth Edwards’s Star Wars: Rogue One could share some serious connections.
