May the fourth be with you! As you know, Star Wars Day is here, and while fans were hoping for casting announcements....those broke earlier this week. So what's left? Well, if you're a fan of the extended universe, the first full trailer for the animated series "Star Wars Rebels" dropped (see below) giving fans a storyline that takes place between 'Episode III' and 'Episode IV.' But if you really want to know more about the movie, you're gonna have to wait.

J.J. Abrams,  'Star Wars'

May the fourth be with you! As you know, Star Wars Day is here, and while fans were hoping for casting announcements....those broke earlier this week. So what's left? Well, if you're a fan of the extended universe, the first full trailer for the animated series "Star Wars Rebels" dropped (see below) giving fans a storyline that takes place between 'Episode III' and 'Episode IV.' But if you really want to know more about the movie, you're gonna have to wait.

J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan took time from their work in London to record a message for fans and... it doesn't reveal much. The two basically just wish everyone a happy Star Wars Day, and there is no title reveal or anything else. But hey, Comic-Con is coming up, so perhaps there will be more news then.

For now, check out the videos below.
