Star Wars has been going through a revival over the past year, as news and announcements have steadily been released regarding the new sequel trilogy, directed by J.J. Abrams, alongside a new series of animated movies. Two new pieces of juicy information regarding these projects have just been released, giving fans more insight into the bright future that the Star Wars franchise has in store for us!

First off is the reveal of the classic X-Wing starfighter, re-imagined for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII! The newly released video continues to remind viewers of the Force For Change initiative, which is a joint effort from Disney, Lucasfilm, and Bad Robot in order to raise funds for UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and to benefit children in need. Every fan who pledges at least $10 to this effort has a chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime experience, including a free tip to London to get a behind-the-scenes look of Episode VII as VIPs, with meet-and-greets with members of the cast and even a guest appearance in Episode VII! The new film is scheduled for release on December 18th, 2015.

A brand-new, full length trailer of the upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated movie was also released, showing off never-before-seen footage of the new series! The new movie, which is set to take place in between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, follows the tale of a small band of insurgents fighting against the iron grip of the Galactic Empire, and will focus on the origins of the Rebel Alliance. The new movie is set to release in October as a one-hour special on the Disney Channel, and will then be followed by an episodic series on Disney XD.
