From the official StarWars.com announcement:
"In the first groundbreaking season of Star Wars Rebels, potential Jedi Ezra Bridger joins the audacious crew of the starship Ghost in their resistance against the Empire. As the series begins, Imperial forces occupy the remote planet of Lothal, ruling with an iron fist and controlling the lives of its citizens. Ezra and his new rebel friends — Hera, Kanan, Sabine, Zeb, and Chopper — travel to different worlds and encounter new characters in several daring missions, while also receiving help from iconic heroes such as Lando Calrissian, Ahsoka Tano, and Jedi Master Yoda. Pursued relentlessly by the Empire and a Jedi hunter called the Inquisitor, this tenacious ragtag band of rebels will find itself in the crosshairs of none other than Darth Vader when Season One closes in a shocking two-part finale. Get a first look at the box art below:"
As you can see, the case is stunningly beautiful, with the cast of Star Wars Rebels taking center stage, the ominous Inquisitor looms large in the background. Rebels is created by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes), and Carrie Beck.
