Star Wars fans have more reasons to be excited beyond the upcoming live-action movies. The Clone Wars’ Dave Filoni and his team are back with a new animated series called Rebels and the first seven minutes have showed up online.
The extended preview gives us a taste of the show, which leans closer to the original Star Wars trilogy than the prequels. Familiar Stormtroopers populate the galaxy and are particularly annoying to Ezra, a young kid on Lothal. In the first seven minutes of the show, Rebels introduces us to our main cast, including the band of rebels that Ezra begins following.
Disney announced Rebels in May 2013 as the first project since Disney bought Lucasfilm. The show will premiere in October on the main Disney Channel with an hour-long show before moving to its regular slot on Disney XD. An exact date still hasn’t been set.
You can check out the full preview below. Clearly, this show isn’t just for kids.
