Disney and Lucasfilm have released the first seven minutes of the first episode of their new Star Wars Rebels series.
Here’s the introduction from the official Star Wars YouTube channel:
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.
Star Wars Rebels will make its official debut on Disney Channel in October 2014. The series will be shown regularly on Disney X-D. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more about the premiere dates, etc. May the force be with you!
