Disney and Lucasfilm has released the first 7.5 minutes of their great looking new animated series Star Wars Rebels. The story is set five years prior to the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, and it focuses on a group of rebels who man a starship called Ghost. The series seems like it's going to be a lot of fun and provide some solid entertainment.
In this special extended preview of Star Wars Rebels, 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.
The series was created by screenwriter Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past). The voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr., Steve Blum, Vanessa Marshall, David Oyelowo, Billy Dee Williams, and Jason Isaacs. It is set to be released on October, and it's definitely looks like it will be worth checking out.
