Diehard Star Wars fans got the chance to check out some new art and logo from the upcoming Star Wars Rebels at the franchise’s Celebration Europe event in Germany on Saturday. The animated TV series, which is coming to Disney Channel and Disney XD in 2014 takes place between Star Wars: Episode III-Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope, spanning about 20 years.
The official logline describes the period as “a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.”
The show’s exec producer Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) unveiled the concept art created by artist Ralph McQuarrie at the event. Exec producers Simon Kinberg and Greg Weisman also sent a video message recorded for the attendees. Filoni described the toon’s new ship, which is called The Ghost, as a cross between a B-17 and the famous Millennium Falcon and that it was very much a home in the series.
