First teaser for animated series Star Wars: Rebels: watch now

"You will know the power of the Force"

A first teaser has debuted online for Star Wars: Rebels, giving us the briefest taste of what to expect from the forthcoming animated series.

Set between the events of the prequel and original trilogies, the new series will focus upon the first stirrings of the Rebel alliance and its early skirmishes with the Empire.

"To battle the Empire, a rebel alliance will form, the Jedi will rise, and you will know the power of the Force," booms the voiceover in this 14-second trailer, as that theme tune supplies the goosebumps…

Take a look below:



Taking that annoyingly "woah dude" narration style out of the equation, this one should keep fans occupied until J.J. Abrams gets the next movie installment into cinemas.

Featuring voice work from the likes of David Oyelowo and Freddie Prinze Jr., Star Wars: Rebels is expected to arrive on US screens in the third quarter of 2014, with a UK air date to be confirmed.
