Exclusive: 'Star Wars Rebels' is Recruiting!

Coming this fall from the creative minds of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels takes place in a time when the Galactic Empire rules the galaxy with an iron fist. The loyalty of its citizens is entrenched through fear and deception, and the Emperor is seeking to expand his power to the Outer Rim territories. The all-new series tells the never-before-seen story of new heroes -- the crew of the starship Ghost: Sabine, Kanan, Hera, Ezra, Zeb, and Chopper -- who fight against the Empire in the days before the Rebel Alliance formed.
