If you’re a fangirl desperately looking for a Star Wars Rebels shirt to express your love and support for the new animated series, then you’re in luck! Ashley Eckstein unveiled two new Star Wars Rebels tees for fangirls of all ages at Her Universe. She wore one of the shirts on the day of the Rebels premiere back on October 3, 2014, which caught the attention of the fangirl community. Ashley even gave us the heads up on September 21, when she informed fellow fangirls that the new shirts would be coming soon, with more coming at Star Wars Celebration.
From left to right:
Join Rebellion Tee (Adult / Youth): “We are big fans of Star Wars Rebels and we ready to Join The Rebellion! Join Ezra, Kanan, Hera, Sabine, Zeb and Chopper as they fight the Empire for justice and peace. This is a missy cut shirt and runs true to size.”
Graffit Rebel Long Sleeve Tee (Adult / Youth): “A Rebel marks the spot! Sabine’s tag symbol has quickly become our new favorite icon and we are obsessed with her graffiti art. Show that you are a Rebel with this super comfy long sleeve top. Runs true to size if you like it fitted. If you want it a bit loose, we recommend going up one size.”
Wholesale and licensed toy distributors from Spain acquired brand new Star Wars Rebels items earlier this week. Though the merchandise is only available for purchase by retailers, you can’t help but look for an “Add to Cart” button somewhere to grab a few items for yourself. The Disney Store currently contains various Star Wars and Star Wars Rebels products, as do other retailers, but here’s hoping the following merchandise reaches consumers domestically as soon as possible.

STAR WARS® COSTUMES: THE ORIGINAL TRILOGY

Who can forget the first time Darth Vader marched onto Princess Leia’s ship in his
enigmatic black mask and cape? Or the moment when Leia pulled back her hood to
reveal the face of a young princess in grave danger? The costumes of the original Star
Wars trilogy were memorable, be it the well-worn armor of bounty hunter Boba Fett, the
imposing presence of a line of faceless Stormtroopers, or Leia’s outfit as Jabba’s slave.
These costumes—like so many that adorned the characters of the galaxy far, far away—
have become iconic. In Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy, for the first time, the
Lucasfilm Archives has granted full access to the original costumes of A New Hope, The
Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, allowing them to be revealed in never-beforeseen
detail. This lavishly illustrated volume pairs all-new photography with original sketches
and artwork by Ralph McQuarrie, John Mollo, and Nilo Rodis-Jamero, and new interviews
with the costume designers, fabricators and dressers.
Mitchell Stein: I couldn’t be more thrilled to see that Star Wars is back on television in animated series form once again, although not quite in any way we’ve ever experienced it before.
The series stars Ezra, a “street rat” who accidentally gets recruited along with a band of misfits who have the same mission as him as they rebel against the Imperial army and fight for justice. Although this series has no connection to any story arc in the ever expanding Star Wars universe, there hasn’t been one that felt so bound with the original trilogy in years. While The Clone Wars was great and fun, Star Wars Rebels takes the die-hard fans closer to the original trilogy and to many fans’ fondest films. It kind of bridges the arc between the two film trilogies, and along with The Clone Wars, really succeeds in it’s awesome story.
