Star Wars Rebels is the first real attempt at a new story set in the Star Wars Universe since Disney took the reigns of the property from George Lucas. And now we get our first look at the series via this clip revealed at WonderCon this last week. The short preview clip features an introduction from voice actress Vanessa Marshall and an exciting sequence from the upcoming animated series.
In the clip, Hera, captain of the Ghost, pilots her starship during a battle with two TIE fighters. A droid named Chopper delivers a message from the Jedi Kanan, currently engaging the TIEs in the top turret. The Jedi is apparently displeased with Hera’s maneuvering. In response, she takes matters into her own hands.
I love the antics of Chopper the droid. Star Wars Rebels is coming to Disney XD later this year.
Also new from Star Wars Rebels this week is a short video interview with Star Wars composer Kevin Kiner.
The upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated series will have a different sound than the more recent music, it will go back to the sound of the first film Episode IV – A New Hope. I think that’s good news.
