A trio of new Star Wars: Rebels TV spots have arrived online.

You can check them out below.

The series, set in between the prequel trilogy and the original Star Wars trilogy, will follow an all-new group of rebel heroes, but will have thematic and plot tie-ins to Star Wars. Characters from Episodes IV, V and VI will also make appearances, according to executive producer Simon Kinberg.

"The show is really sort of connected to the original films -- and really to A New Hope. It's the beginning of the Rebel Alliance and it's something that will come to fruition in the original films and thirty years after the original films, the characters in the world that we create from this are not as relevant," Kinberg said when asked recently about ties between Rebels and the upcoming Star Wars sequel trilogy. "Absolutely you're going to see cameos from IV, V and VI. The focus of the show is on the characters on this new crew for a new generation of fans but for my generation of fans, the older generation of fans, the parents, there will be a lot for them to see both in terms of cameos of characters that are beloved, iconic characters with some voices you maybe haven't heard in a long time but lots of little Easter egg things. I don't know if you saw the pilot, but there's a scene that takes place on Kessel and it's things like that, it's little touches that my kids wouldn't recognize as an allusion. My kids would recognize C-3PO and R2-D2, but they may not recognize some of the places and little details that we pepper into the show."
