Star Wars Rebels Panel at NYCC

By: Dominic Jones

Fans going to New York Comic Con, we have good news!  Lucasfilm's Pablo Hidalgo will be hosting an exclusive look at the upcoming animated series, premiering in 2014.  Check out the official description of the panel below:

Star Wars Rebels: The Might of the Empire
Saturday, October 12, 2013
2:45 p.m. - 3:45 p.m., Room 1E
What happens when the Galactic Empire takes over a planet? What if Imperials took interest in your world, and garrisoned Stormtroopers and TIE fighters to maintain order? Star Wars Rebels, the thrilling, all-new animated television series from Lucasfilm for Disney XD will ask those questions -- and so will this panel hosted by Lucasfilm's resident Star Warsexpert, Pablo Hidalgo.
Details on the show are closely guarded, but fans at NYCC will get a first look at new art from the series, and learn new information about the formidable forces of the Galactic Empire. Star Wars Rebels is set between Episodes III and IV, and it is a dark time in the galaxy. In the spirit of the original trilogy, the Empire is once again the preeminent villain of the saga, and Star Wars Rebels puts the awesome might of Imperial forces in the spotlight.
The series is still a year away, so don't miss this chance to get an early look at its development.
Fans at Celebration Europe got a first look at the series earlier this summer, so I think we can expect a reiteration of a lot of what was said in Essen. However, there will almost certainly be something new revealed, whether it's new designs, new characters, or perhaps even a first look at early animation....
