Last week we debuted the fairly unspectacular trailer for the new Star Wars animated series, Star Wars Rebels. Now, thanks to New York Comic Con, we've got more information, a picture of the main bad guy and a featurette.

The panel revealed that Rebels will take place 14 years after the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, a time in which the galaxy is beginning to increasingly realize the nefarious reality of the Empire. The series will also introduce a new Sith villain, called The Inquisitor (and pictured below) he's responsible for hunting down the last Jedi knights. It was also confirmed the stormtroopers would not be clones, but some were trained by them, while the showrunners didn't rule out the possibility of some Clone Wars characters crossing over with Rebels. Take a look at the picture and featurette below:


What do you think? Is this shaping up to be even better than The Clone Wars? Let us know below.
