NYCC propaganda poster and official synopsis for Star Wars Rebels

Earlier this week we got our first brief teaser trailer for Star Wars Rebels, and now Lucasfilm has released a propaganda poster for the upcoming animated series via Entertainment Weekly to coincide with this weekend’s New York Comic Con….

And here’s the official synopsis:

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.

Star Wars Rebels is being produced by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class) and Greg Weisman (Young Justice), and will feature the likes of David Oyelowo (Lee Daniels’ The Butler), Freddie Prinze Jr. (Scooby-Doo), Vanessa Marshall (Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox), Taylor Gray (Bucket and Skinner’s Epic Adventures), and Steve Blum (The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes) among its voice cast.
