Axel-In-Charge: Facing the 'Divided' Marvel NOW! Future
Lucasfilm gave fans at Star Wars Celebration Europe a preview of next year’s Star Wars Rebels cartoon, revealing concept art and the logo for the animated show.
According to Starwars.com, attendees in Germany were given “their first look at the Ghost, which will be the main character’s ship and play a big part in the series, as well as a computer rendering of a very McQuarrie-esque Stormtrooper, the interior of a Star Destroyer, and more. The show’s logo, a minimalist yet powerful design, is notable for its orange and black color scheme, which recalls the flight suit colors of Rebel pilots in the original Star Wars trilogy.”
Star Wars Rebels will launch in fall 2014 with a one-hour special on the Disney Channel before becoming as a full-fledged television series on Disney XD. The series is set between the events of Episode III and IV — 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.
