May the 4th marks the unofficial holiday that STAR WARS fans worldwide use to celebrate the sprawling space saga — a date chosen since it plays off the iconic: “May the Force be with you” expression. To join in on the celebration, Disney XD now unveils a new trailer for the upcoming STAR WARS: REBELS — an animated series set between the movies EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH and EPISODE IV: A NEW HOPE — which will show the rise of the Empire, and the beginnings of the Rebels resistance. Here is the premiere of the trailer!

STAR WARS: REBELS premieres in the fall as a one-hour special on the Disney Channel, then debuts as a series on Disney XD worldwide.
