Join the Rebellion in this first official trailer for STAR WARS REBELS

Rebels 3

It’s no secret that I happen to be a huge fan of the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series, which outranks even the core films in my humble Sith Lord opinion. Over six seasons, that show evolved from fun Saturday morning fun into high-budget action with impressive storylines that were layered and deep. With the Clone Wars over, it’s time for a new series to take over, and fill in the void between Episodes 3 and 4. Star Wars: Rebels is the name of that show. Here’s the first proper trailer for a series that isn’t so far, far away now.

Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures.   It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world.  As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people.  The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.

I’m digging the core idea behind this show. It’s not about the actual Rebel Alliance that eventually formed to oppose the Empire, but rather a ragtag group of outcasts banding together to do a Kessel run in 12 middle fingers or less. It’s starting to sound like Firefly: The Animated Series essentially. Which might not be a bad idea at all. Star Wars: Rebels is out later this year.

      The moment I saw that kettie I completely lost all respect for this. So now they have to make Star Wars kiddy because?????
      We were children when we watched the original trilogy and they didn’t have to put pantoffels on the AT-AT’s to make it more appealing to us.

      The whole animated series industry is getting stupider by the day.
