New STAR WARS REBELS Footage With First Look At Obi-Wan Kenobi (French)
Hit the jump to see a nice new snippet of Star Wars Rebels footage. It happens to be in French, so, oui, oui. The footage includes our first look at Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi.
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.
