The Empire casts its shadow over new Star Wars Rebels concept art

The architecture of the Galactic Empire dominates the skyline of a city on the Outer Rim planet Lothal in this new concept art from the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels.

Star Wars Rebels takes place around the year 5 BBY between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Lothal's capital city is home to a Sienar Fleet Systems TIE fighter factory. And, as this concept piece by Andre Kirk suggests, Lothal is feeling the influence of the Empire.
