The Rebel Legion is a worldwide organization of Star Wars fans in Rebel Alliance costume.
It was founded in 2000 by Tony Troxell and has grown to become Lucasfilm Ltd.’s preferred Rebel Alliance costuming group, most notably appearing in the 2007 Rose Bowl Parade. The Legion was initially formed as a reaction to the 501st Legion and as of 2007 had a membership of over 2000 members. Since then that number has grown and grown.
The Rebel Legion can often be found assisting at promotional events for almost anything related to Star Wars and frequently put their “fame” to use at numerous charity events throughout the year.
The Legion is divided into a number of bases, local “chapters” with jurisdiction over regions of varying size (anywhere from a portion of a state to multiple states to multiple nations).
