Star Wars: Rebels to Debut Trailer on May the 4th; New Images Revealed

04.29.2014

It’s been a big day for the Star Wars universe; we met the cast of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII and now we have some slick new images from the upcoming Disney Channel series STAR WARS REBELS. The animated series takes place some 14 years after the events of REVENGE OF THE SITH and centers on the fledgling rebellion as the Empire hunts down the last of the Jedi Knights to secure rule of the galaxy.

Here’s a synopsis:

"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.

So now we have met the show's main villain, The Inquisitor.  We drooled over the LEGO sets and action figures.  We even checked out a very short teaser and cool concept art; there's nothing left but to wait for them to show off the goods.

Disney has now announced that the first trailer will be released on Star Wars Day (May 4th). You bet your ass we will throw it up so check back with us! STAR WARS: REBELS is scheduled to premiere in the fall of 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, and will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

The ONLY good thing that I can see coming out of this series so far is the original StormTroopers. WHAT THE HELL IS WITH THE SLINGSHOT ARM BLASTER! Is the kid Bart Simpson ?!?

Is that a sling-shot the dude is using? A mother-fucking sling-shot in a Star Wars show?
Fuck you, Disney!

I wonder if we'll ever get a Star Wars show aimed at adults, even if it is a cartoon. I'm not talking about rated-R type stuff with sex and blood, but something that doesn't look like it's also trying to promote a new toy line and is aimed at kids. There are so many fans in their 20's-40's, that they are really missing a big demographic with just these kid shows. To be fair, I'll still check it out.

Did you watch the last few seasons of Clone Wars? It definitely wasn't aimed at kids in any way.

Don't see the reason for the back lash this early on. The show isn't out yet. But Ican understand why people are worried, after the two good Marvel cartoons was taken off the air and replaced with some childish versions of those cartoons. I guess some feel that the same thing is gonna happen to Rebels.

I'll wait til I can see an actual episode. But this just seems like a combination of "Star Wars Lite" mixed with every cliche from sci if.

There's something a bit too Disney-ized about this.

I think it's that stupid artist character and the ridiculous looking pink Boba Fett costume.
