As most of you know, I’m a gigantic Star Wars nerd, and no, I’m not just talking about my imposing physical stature. While I may hold the Great Neckbearded Flannel aka George Lucas in much esteem anymore, I’ve spent most of my life enjoying adventures in the universe he helped create. Which is why it was a bit odd that I wasn’t really pumped for one of the latest entrants in that universe: Star Wars.
After the awesomeness of Cartoon Network’s Clone Wars (note to self: You really need to finish that show one of these days), Disney’s new animated offering just seemed overly kiddie to me (the one guy uses a laser kettie… LASER… KETTIE…) which put a real damper on it for me. However, since then I’ve watched small snippets of the show which impressed me a fair bit, heard the rumours of how the show’s story may just be tying into the new upcoming movies and suddenly found myself counting down the days until Star Wars Rebels hits our TV screens. And these new TV spots are not helping.
The show will be kicking off on Friday 3 October on Disney Channels around the world with an one-hour movie titled Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion is set to premiere Friday, October 3. The show features the voice talents of Freddie Prinze, Jr., Taylor Gray, Tiya Sircar, Steven Blum, Vanessa Marshall, Jason Isaacs and David Oyelowo.
