Disney Release First Trailer of 'Star

Disney’s “Star Wars Rebels” will debut its first trailer worldwide on Star Wars Day, May 4.

The animated series is the first project stemming from Disney’s 2012 acquisition of Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion in cash and stock.

“Star Wars Rebels” continues the tradition of the “Star Wars” saga with new adventures. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, with the starship Ghost taking a stand against the Empire.

In the U.S., Disney XD will feature the trailer during the premiere of Lego’s “Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles” at 7 p.m. The trailer will also air on Disney Channel, ABC, ABC Family, Fusion, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3 at varying times throughout the day.

Fans can get a 30-second sneak peak of the trailer on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Friday.

“Star Wars Rebels” is scheduled to premiere in the fall as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, to be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
