It's a little hard to believe, but 2024 will mark 10 years since we were first introduced to a new band of galactic heroes in Star Wars Rebels. Now, we've learned that Marvel Comics plans to celebrate this milestone with new variant covers by acclaimed artist Caspar Wijngaard.

Depicting the beloved cast of the series, the "Star Wars Rebels 10th Anniversary Variant Covers" will adorn issues of Marvel's ongoing Star Wars and Star Wars: Darth Vader comic books from January to April. 

Set before the events of A New Hope, the hit animated series chronicled the early adventures of the Rebellion and starred Jedi Kanan Jarrus and his apprentice Ezra Bridger, pilot Hera Syndulla and her loyal astromech droid Chopper, Mandalorian warrior Sabine Wren, and the hulking Garazeb 'Zeb' Orrelios. 

The series also continued the saga of Ahsoka Tano and brought back Grand Admiral Thrawn to the Star Wars mythos. Since it ended, Rebels continues to impact Star Wars storytelling from character appearances in comic books and novels to the new Ahsoka series, which puts the spotlight on many of the show's central characters as they embark on a new journey with huge stakes.

"It was such an honour to be involved in the 10th anniversary for Rebels, having recently revisited the adventures of the Spectres in preparation for Ashoka, this opportunity was perfect timing," Wijngaard says, "We’ve been absolutely spoiled with Rebels content these last few weeks and I’m glad in could be a part of it in some way."

It's unclear how else Lucasfilm will pay homage to the Star Wars series next year, but we have just got what's essentially a fifth season for the show in live-action courtesy of the aforementioned Ahsoka!
