It looks like we will be getting another look and some new info about Star Wars Rebels soon, as it has just been announced that it will have an appearance at the New York Comic Con with a panel titled, Star Wars Rebels: Might of the Empire. Here are the details about the panel:
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 Wars expert, 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.
I love how this panel looks to focus on how the Empire will look and operate in the series, as that’s one of the main things I’m looking forward to seeing in Star Wars Rebels!
New York Comic Con will take place from October 10th-13th 2013, and for the full list of Star Wars panels and events that will take place at the convention, head on over to StarWars.com
