Disney XD and Lucasfilm have released two new teasers--titled "Spark" and "Ignite"--for its upcoming animated series "Star Wars Rebels."
In "Spark," we get our first look at the young con artist Ezra in action. After crash-landing, he appears to use a sling-shot against The Inquisitor, Darth Vader's henchman.
"Ignite" also focuses on Ezra, but gives us a good look at the starship Ghost, captained by Jedi-in-hiding Kanan with crew member Chopper, a cranky droid.
Both teasers mention how "a spark of a rebellion ignites," which seems to happen once Ezra and Kanan meet. The Imperial forces better look out. (Watch "Spark above and "Ignite" at the bottom of this story.)
Premiering with a one-hour special this fall on the Disney Channel before moving to Disney XD as a weekly series, "Rebels" will cover the action between big-screen films "Episode III--Revenge of the Sith" and "Episode IV--A New Hope."
The rebellion against the Galactic Empire is not yet organized as the series begins, but the formation of the Rebel Alliance will be examined over (hopefully) multiple seasons.
Disney and Lucasfilm have been dropping teasers and introducing characters on a weekly basis to pump up the already huge interest in the series:
Tune into Disney XD's "Kickin' It" at 5 p.m. Feb. 17 and "Lab Rats" at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 17 to catch the all-new teasers.
