First promos for Star Wars: Rebels show off some characters and action

02.17.2014

More and more is being revealed about the new STAR WARS animated series, Star Wars: Rebels, be it through behind-the-scenes videos, posters, or new toy images, but today we have our first proper promo spots for the upcoming show, which is set to debut on Disney XD in the fall. The two new spots highlight some of the new characters, settings, and locales that are set to appear in the show, including the golden plains of Lothal, TIE fighters, the Ghost starship, the grumpy droid, Chopper, and one of the new lead characters, Ezra.

"Spark":

"Ignite":

The new series "takes place between Star Wars: Episode III and IV as the Empire tightens its grip on the galaxy and a rebellion begins to form" so it's a significant shift from the latest Star Wars show, The Clone Wars (which will debut its final season on Netflix). So far, the new show is looking pretty good, if not exceptionally similar to Clone Wars in style, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'll definitely be checking it out and hoping for the best.

Star Wars: Rebels kicks off this fall on Disney XD.

Looks awesome

It will be good, the creative team has a good tracl record. The Disney XD trailers WILL be cheesy, its a network focused on the preteen audience. The show itself is being made internally within Lucasfilm, with a few Disney executives and creative people thrown into the mix, and may still yet be tasteful for adult fanboys like myself. An original trilogy animated Star Wars show? One big reason to stay optimistic.

Looks like a really bad video game, i dont know why they have this kind of design style. I wish they would come out with a more mature theme show thats animated. Along the lines of Afro Samurai or some other top notch anime, not this Americanized mixture of Anime/American art style.

Disney at its worst

This looks terrible, sling shot weapon is corny, and why do they need to have anime hair? This is just trying to appeal to a younger "hip" crowd. Passing without watching the first episode. Star Wars is over saturated, its time to let it dry out!

I'll watch anything Star Wars puts its name on, can't wait for this!

And I agree with the guys below, video playback is less than par, but on the other hand you seem to follow every video with that scene from True Detective where that chick gets butt naked! So keep up the good work lol

@StryfeDeath: The ads on my mobile are the worst. Don't know how many times I had to change to desktop mode because the stupid ads takes up my whole screen and it doesn't have the "x" at the top of the screen for me to exit out of. Couldn't stand having the ad for "About Last Night" dominate my screen.

Can't decide whether this is good or bad

So far, Disney's been really good to Marvel and I like the look of the series. However, I have a feeling Ezra's going to be highly annoying, and a "grumpy droid" makes me very nervous. I'll need to see more of this series before I decide one way or another.

Ads work fine, trailers freeze too much. Same old story. I remember when this site declared that they wouldn't let advertisements threaten the integrity of the site. I noticed ad-block doesn't work on your video player which is probably why you use it although there are much better options that don't freeze. Feels like you're selling out.

Agreed the playback on this site is awful, even when you let it buffer you still get staggering with the playback.

Sorry you're having trouble with the videos. Sometimes it can be a browser or software issue. We do have two video channels, one here and one on You Tube, which generally have the same content. As for the ads...paying the bills is hardly "selling out." No one is swimming in gold coins around here.

@Paul
why not embed the youtube video that you are also uploading on your video channel? Why use this terrible video player? when you do embed the youtube videos they play fine - the issue seems to be with this video player

Nobody on our site has any issues with our video playbacks, so we need more info on how this is happening to ya'll, so we can fix it. Ideally, you would email either Paul or myself, since we can't read every single comment below every article on our site. Does this happen on your desktop/laptop computers when surfing the site and watching our videos or SOLELY when you are on your mobile phones, for example? What OS are you using? What browser are you using? We gotta assume you have high-speed

Hey! Joblo! Zoroxis here, no relation, nice to meet you....can you do something about how the ads on the mobile site. It is annoying to have a ad cover the entire screen, hate to have to use the desktop option everytime to visit this site.

The videos that link to youtube are usually better, My brother and I are both on mac OS laptops and get exactly the same problem. It didnt matter if I was using chrome, firefox or safari, would always have the same problem.
