Lucasfilmhas released a new poster to promote its upcoming new animated series ‘Star Wars Rebels’.  The show takes place between ‘Episodes III’ and ‘IV’ and chronicles the rise of the Empire as they hunt down the remaining Jedi and the formation of the Rebel Alliance.

The new poster is inspired by Cold War Soviet propaganda and reads “Enlist – The Empire Is The Future’ and depicts a classic TIE Fighter.  You can check it out below:


Previously, another poster was released showing Stormtroopers.  Unfortunately I couldn’t find the translation for this one, so if you can read… Star Warsian… leave a comment below!

Here is the show’s official plot 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.

Produced by Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg and Greg Weisman, ‘Rebels’ will feature the likes of David Oyelowo, Freddie Prinze Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray, and Steve Blum among its voice cast.
