New ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Trailer Teaser: “Let’s Take a Bite Out of the Empire!” (VIDEO)
Along with the mammoth 'Star Wars' casting announcements this week, Lucasfilm revealed that its May 4 celebration would also see the release of a new trailer for Disney XD's forthcoming 'Star Wars Rebels.' Our first look at the new Sunday trailer has arrived, and the crew of the rebellious "Ghost" is hungry to take a bite out of the Imperial forces!
"In a time when fear ruled the galaxy, a rebellion will ignite," teases the brief new look at the 'Star Wars Rebels' trailer coming this Sunday. In addition to hearing some of our new characters speaking for the first time, the sneak peek also shows us plenty of Stormtrooper action, close-quarters blaster battles, and more than a few explosions.
Premiering this fall on Disney XD, 'Star Wars Rebels' features a cast that includes “Ghost” pilot Hera (Vanessa Marshall), brutish and brilliant Zeb (Steve Blum), spunky Mandalorian Sabine (Tiya Sircar), “cowboy Jedi” Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.), and the Luke Skywalker-esque Ezra Bridger (Noah Taylor), along with the crew’s feisty droid Chopper.
Picking up where the now-canceled ‘Clone Wars‘ left off, ‘Star Wars Rebels’ will feature screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg (‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘Elysium‘), who wrote the first episode, on the creative side. Elsewhere, here’s everything we know from the official ‘Star Wars Rebels’ logline:
‘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.
But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship “Ghost.” Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes.
We'll have the full 'Star Wars Rebels' trailer for you this coming Sunday, but in the meantime, take a look at the teaser above, and tell us in the comments what you want to see from the latest animated iteration of a galaxy far, far away!
