Lucasfilm has released three new TV spots for “Star Wars Rebels,” which will premiere with a one-hour movie titled “Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion” on WATCHDisneyXD.com and the WATCH Disney XD app beginning Monday, September 29.
The television debut of “Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion” is set for Friday, October 3 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT in the U.S.) on Disney Channels around the world, ushering in the series “Star Wars Rebels” beginning Monday, October 13 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.
Set between the events of Star Wars: Episodes III and IV, the story unfolds during a dark time when the evil Galactic Empire is tightening its grip of power on the galaxy. Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet and are ruining the lives of its people. The motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost — cowboy Jedi Kanan, ace pilot Hera, street-smart teenager Ezra, the “muscle” Zeb, warrior firebrand Sabine, and cantankerous old astromech droid Chopper — is among a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, they will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.
