Two Promos And A Full Cast Poster For STAR WAR REBELS Released
We’ve seen a lot of toys and a few character videos these past few weeks for Star Wars Rebels, but the first actual footage for the new Disney/Disney XD show has debuted thanks to two promos released by the official Star Wars YouTube page. The videos, titled Spark and Ignite, give us our first good look at the style of the show. While there are fast cuts for a lot of ships and character, the focus is largely the young man we know is named Ezra. He’s a Force user that doesn’t even know what the Force is. He also has a pretty cool lighsaber that seems to be made out of the butt of a blaster.
In addition to the videos, a full cast poster was unveiled during today’s Toy Fair presentation from Disney. The Inquisitor, Ezra, Kanan, Zeb, Chopper the service droid, and a few other unnamed characters spring into action in the new image. Rebels will air a one-hour special on the Disney Channel this fall before going to its regular time and 30-minute episode runtime on Disney XD. What do you think about our first look at actual footage?
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.
