Rebels Trailer to Debut on May 4th

By: Lillian Skye

There has been no shortage of Star Wars news this week with the announcement that the Expanded Universe is no longer cannon, and the reveal of the Episode VII cast.

Now, a Star Wars Rebels trailer is scheduled to debut in honor of May the Fourth. According to USA Today, "the first Rebels trailer premieres early Sunday morning (3:01 a.m. ET/12:01 PT) on various websites including and, and will also air during Disney XD's LEGO animated special Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles on Sunday night (7 ET/PT)."

Tiya Sircar, the voice behind the Rebel Sabine, says she "can't wait for people to find out why she's part of this Rebel crew." Sircar stressed that, "It's serious stuff."

She explained that if she had to rank her level of Star Wars fandom on a scale of 1-10, that she is now an 11. She also revealed that Vanessa Marshall, who plays Hera, and Freddie Prinze, Jr., who is the voice of Kanan in the show, know almost as much about Star Wars as Dave Filoni, who according to Sircar, is the "encyclopedia" of Star Wars.

Several new images for the show were also released, which can be seen below:

Star Wars Rebels will premiere Fall 2014 on Disney XD and will follow the characters of Ezra, Kanan, and the crew of The Ghost, answering unanswered questions about events that happened between Order 66 and A New Hope, leaving fans anxious to join their favorite heroes in the Rebellion against the Empire.
