Star Wars Rebels extended preview

Every rebellion has its starting point. How it got started on Lothal is the moment shared in this special 7 minute preview of Star Wars Rebels.

As the story goes, the Empire arrives on Lothal — bringing tyranny with them. Imperials and stormtroopers establish an intimidating presence on the planet, enforcing strict new laws for trade and arresting citizens for expressing dissent of any kind. A young boy named Ezra, however, discovers that a mysterious group is attempting to steal cargo from the Empire. Intrigued, he tries to take it for himself – and ends up on the run from both Imperials and this small band of rebels.

I’m impressed so far! While I didn’t watch much of Clone Wars, I will definitely give this one a go together with my son.

Star Wars Rebels, set between Episodes III and IV of the Star Wars saga, will premiere in October 2014 with a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, and will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

Bonus: There’s a very insightful interview with executive producer Dave Filoni over on SlashFilm. Check it out for some great stuff on what it’s like to put together something that will be a part of the Star Wars canon.
