Series takes inspiration from Episode IV
What will the new animated series “Star Wars Rebels” look like?
It may resemble an earlier version of “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.” That’s according to a preview of the just announced series unveiled on StarWars.com Monday, soon after the new Disney Channel/Disney XD series was announced.
The new series takes place in the two decades between the third and fourth episodes, so it will be inspired by the work of conceptual designer and illustrator Ralph McQuarrie, who designed the look of the original trilogy.
