It’s interesting how the “Star Wars” universe converses with itself. The Disney XD animated series “Star Wars: Rebels” was set in the years between “Revenge Of The Sith” and “Star Wars: A New Hope,” essentially when the Galactic Empire was extending its dominion across the galaxy and hunting Jedis down.
