Star Wars Rebels is the new animated series that tells us what took place in the Star Wars universe between the events of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope. The first trailers were released on May 4th, but now we have a new snippet of footage, in French, and it shows us our favorite Jedi, Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi. Sir Alec Guinness played the character in the original trilogy and Ewan McGregor in him in the god awful prequel trilogy. Though, McGregor was one of the few bright spots from those films.
Starring a small band of heroes -- Sabine, Kanan, Hera, Ezra, Zeb, and Chopper -- Star Wars Rebels is set in a time where the Empire rules through fear and shrouds the galaxy in darkness. This trailer offers many new glimpses at sequences from the show, including the starship Ghost chased by TIE Fighters; young Ezra watching as a Star Destroyer looms overhead; Stormtroopers marching; a zero-g fight between our heroes and Imperials; and Kanan, a secret Jedi, assembling his lightsaber and preparing for battle. It ends, however, with an Imperial officer reporting to the Inquisitor -- the Empire's Jedi hunter, seen and heard here for the first time. Star Wars Rebels takes place between Star Wars: Episode III and IV as the Empire tightens its grip on the galaxy and a rebellion begins to form. The series, executive produced by Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg, and Greg Weisman, is scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel and will be followed by a series on Disney XD.

He looks nothing like Alec Guinness that's kinda crappy.
I Have really no expectation for this whatsoever.
Typical Disney crap, a punk rock Mandalorioan? [frick] you Disney.
It's obvious they are gearing this to the Disney crowd, same as their every other show that and it looks like a complete rehash of the New Hope.

It's going to be cool , clone wars everybody also bitched like a pussy when it came out, but they rocked it I expect rebels to be just as bad ass

SO Clone Wars, but in a more traditional Empire timeline. I have no problem with that.

looks good. I'm still trying to adjust myself to the whole "the last 20 years of EU never happened and was a colossal waste of money" thing.

Not out of anything sentimental...well, a little sentimentality...but just for the sheer amount of money I've shelled out over that span of time...

George basically just wiped his ass w/ my 20 yr financial investment...and I'm getting shit on my ROI...

Not good for business.

Hm. I like it.

I hope this show is realistic with it's ending. You know they probably have to die right?

Clone Wars was completely different studio and they've ditched it for something dumber that will attract teens. They did that to Spectacular Spiderman, they did that to EMH and this will be no different.
