"Star Wars: Rebels" Gets Trailer, Obi-Wan

It's "Star Wars" Day and Disney have posted the full trailer for its highly anticipated animated series "Star Wars Rebels". The minute-long teaser will premiere on TV during Disney XD's airing of "Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles" at 7pm US-PT/ET.

'Rebels' is set between the prequel and original trilogy, in a time with the Empire securing its grip on the galaxy. At the same time a fledgling rebellion is taking shape. The show premieres in the fall as a one-hour special on Disney Channel.

Meanwhile, JediNews reports that Obi-Wan Kenobi will serve as a character in the series - filling in the gap between the end of 'Revenge of the Sith' and 'A New Hope'. How extensive his appearance will be is unsure, but 'Rebels' will be a part of Disney and Lucasfilm's official 'canon' for the series.
