A website designed to promote the upcoming Disney XD Star Wars series, ‘Star Wars Rebe;s,’ has recently popped up at sienarfleetsystems.com.
Currently consisting only of a single propaganda image, the site seeks to appeal to citizens of the economically troubled planet Lothal to join defense contractor Sienar Fleet Systems. Promoting its primary product, the TIE Fighter, the poster promises that SFS’s objective is to produce ‘the latest in defense against threats to peace’ and to ‘bringing jobs and prosperity to Lothal.’
‘Star Wars Rebels,’ which is produced by Lucasfilm Animation, is set between the events of Episode III and IV – an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen. ‘Star Wars Rebels’ takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape. It will premiere on Disney XD in 2014.
