Star Wars Rebels concept art

Orange like the Rebel pilot's jumpsuits
Rebels takes place between Episode III and Episode IV. The series is to follow one teen and chronicle the birth of the Rebel Alliance according to Dave Filoni (who gave us Clone Wars, as well as Avatar: The Last Airbender!). The show looks like it will be based around a ship called The Ghost. Concept art shows a real Ralph McQuarrie look which is always awesome. The Ghost design idea was a cross between a B-17 and a bit of the Millennium Falcon.

Episode IV's designs weren't exactly like McQuarrie's style. The concept art for Episode IV always seemed even older than how the actual models, etc turned out. That notion is what will fuel Rebel's older style.
“We wanted to create a look for this part of Star Wars that precedes A New Hope by just a little bit,” Filoni said. “We have created a set of digital brushes that replicate McQuarrie’s style. [...] We’re going for something that’s much more an illustrative look.”

More McQuarrie-like concept art
Star Wars Rebels is going to premiere in Fall 2014. That should be about time for Fantasy Flight's Age of Rebellion. Well played Chris Peterson, well played.
