Lucasfilm and Disney XD have released a new short from “Star Wars Rebels” which shows Ezra finding a downed TIE fighter on the plains of Lothal. The young rebel opens the ship’s hatch — pretending to help the ungrateful Imperial pilot — and leaves with a few souvenirs.
“Star Wars Rebels” continues the epic tradition of the legendary “Star Wars” saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.
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.
