The Rebels send Ezra on an undercover mission into the Imperial Academy to steal a decoder. When a couple newly made academy friends are put in danger by an edict of the Emperor, Ezra attempts to escape from the Academy with them.
Set five years before "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" following the fall of the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Council, the series follows a motley group of rebels (all of whom have been affected by the Galactic Empire in one form or the other) that band together aboard a freighter starship called the Ghost. The series will also focus on the origins of some of the groups that form the Rebel Alliance.
Using the life of the Skywalker twins (Luke and Leia) as a measure, the series will be active in the story years that come after their separation as newborns and before their (unwitting) reunion on the prison level of the Death Star.
