New ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Poster: The Empire is the Future!
We haven’t heard much in the way of ‘Star Wars‘ forthcoming animated series ‘Star Wars Rebels‘ since New York Comic-Con, but it seems the recruitment process has begun. The latest poster for the animated follow-up to ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars‘ wants you to join the Empire, so take a look!
Similar to the poster revealed ahead of Comic-Con, the newest ‘Star Wars Rebels’ poster (debuted via Omlette) takes a stylistic recruiting design to show off the glory of the Empire, taglining the TIE fighter piece in Aurabesh with “Enlist – The Empire is the Future.” Nifty, right?
Meanwhile here’s the official ‘Star Wars Rebels’ logline:
‘Star Wars Rebels’ continues the epic tradition of the legendary ‘Star Wars’ saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people.
But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship “Ghost.” Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes.
We’ve already seen concept art of the mentioned Millennium Falcon-esque “Ghost,” as well as the new Jedi-hunting “Inquisitor” baddie, but no voice cast has been made official. That said, we previously heard Freddie Prinze Jr., ‘The Butler’ star David Oyelowo, Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray and Steven Jay Blum were at least on the short list. Picking up where the now-canceled ‘Clone Wars‘ left off, ‘Star Wars Rebels’ will feature on the creative side screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg (‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘Elysium‘), who’s writing the first episode, as well as ‘Clone Wars’ supervising director Dave Filoni and ‘Young Justice’ producer Greg Weisman.
We’ll bring you all the latest on ‘Star Wars Rebels’ while we wait for 2014, but check out the badass new poster below, and tell us what you think in the comments!
