Watch The First Trailer For ‘Star Wars Rebels’!

Sunday 4th May 2014 by Derek Kraneveldt

Briefly: Disney revealed the initial cast for Star Wars Episode VII just a few days ago, leaving fans to wonder what the House of Mouse would have in store for us come Star Wars Day.

Now, we have the first full trailer for Star Wars Rebels, which will premiere this Fall on Disney XD.

Starring a small band of heroes — Sabine, Kanan, Hera, Ezra, Zeb, and Chopper — Star Wars Rebels is set in a time where the Empire rules through fear and shrouds the galaxy in darkness. This trailer offers many new glimpses at sequences from the show, including the starship Ghost chased by TIE Fighters; young Ezra watching as a Star Destroyer looms overhead; Stormtroopers marching; a zero-g fight between our heroes and Imperials; and Kanan, a secret Jedi, assembling his lightsaber and preparing for battle. It ends, however, with an Imperial officer reporting to the Inquisitor — the Empire’s Jedi hunter, seen and heard here for the first time. Star Wars Rebels takes place between Star Wars: Episode III and IV as the Empire tightens its grip on the galaxy and a rebellion begins to form. The series, executive produced by Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg, and Greg Weisman, is scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel and will be followed by a series on Disney XD.

Take a look at the trailer below, let us know what you think, and be sure to let us know if you did anything special for Star Wars Day!
