Before Rogue One there was Star Wars: Rebels – and fans can look forward to a new series of the animated show later this year.

Production is underway on the fourth season of the show, which, like Rogue, is set between the third and fourth movies. Star Wars: Rebels follows the adventures of a plucky group of freedom fighters who take the fight to the Empire aboard their ship Ghost.

Forest Whitaker has already reprised his role of Rebel freedom fighter Saw Gerrera in season 3 and fans will be hoping that there will be more Star Wars: Rebels/Rogue One crossovers in the new series.

More details on the new season are expected to be unveiled later this month at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando.
