Following the wake of the announcement of the full trailer for 'Star Wars Rebels' coming on May 4th, Lucasfilm has graced us with yet another teaser trailer for the upcoming Star Wars series coming to Disney XD.
Check out the teaser trailer from Empire Online.
When asked about the upcoming series, Executive Producer Dave Filoni had this to say.
"I think it’s important that Rebels be its own thing," said Filoni. "We created a monster in Clone Wars and there is a generation of kids now that love those characters, so you can imagine that when we’re in the story room I am pitching connections here and there. And to be honest [fellow executive producers] Simon [Kinberg] and Greg [Weisman] have watched Clone Wars and they are excited by it. Star Wars is such a universal thing. I think people would be disappointed if there wasn’t some connection, but at the same time I want the Star Wars Rebels characters to shine in their own right, and I want them to capture a new generation of fans as each, you know, moment in Star Wars storytelling does. They need their own space as well."
But what about the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII? Is there a sort of Star Wars High Command to determine that the series and the movie (which are both canon) don't clash?
"The answer would be yes. I am aware of things that are going on all over the Star Wars galaxy. The same story team that is working on collaborating with the creatives on the feature collaborates with me, so I have a direct link to everything going on, which is incredibly exciting and incredibly stressful because of all the secrets that we now carry inside our astromech units. You know, I think it’s important. I love working with creative teams that appreciate that and take the time to make it all happen, because you can imagine that it’s a tremendous effort to have all these stories going on the whole time."
'Star Wars Rebels' premieres this fall with an hour long special on Disney Channel, followed by an upcoming series on Disney XD.
