Star Wars Rebels is the animated series coming after Disney bought Lucasfilm. The series takes place in-between the movie series episodes–after Episode III and before Episode IV.
The previous Star Wars TV animation, The Clone Wars, started as an animated film. The film led to a cartoon series that ran for 6 years, right up until this year and getting replaced by Rebels.
Looks like Disney is going to handle the Star Wars franchise quite well, if these clips are anything to judge. And though older fans have doubts, maybe the upcoming film will usher in a new era of the force.
May the animated force be with you.
