New Teasers For Star Wars Rebels

We’ve had a few glimpses of new cartoon series Star Wars Rebels already, including a look at the main ship and quirky Astromech droid Chopper and a hissable introduction to main villain The Inquisitor. With the show due to start airing in the autumn (across the pond at least), two teasers have now arrived with some more footage.

Star Wars Rebels is set 14 years after the events of Revenge Of The Sith and four years before Luke sets off on his adventure in Star Wars. It focuses on a young core group of characters, including “Cowboy” Jedi Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr), in hiding from the Empire’s death sweep and refusing to use his powers to help the fight; Ezra Bridger; Zeb Orrelios and Hera Syndulla. Flying aboard the Starship Ghost, they’re trying to avoid capture by the Imperial forces with the aid (and occasional hindrance) of Chopper.

Pursuing them with cold ruthlessness is The Inquisitor, an Imperial agent tasked with exterminating the last vestiges of the Jedi order and generally running down rebels as the Empire grows ever stronger.

There’s no word yet on when we might see the show in the UK – it’s airing on Disney XD in the States, so hopefully it’ll make it over.
