Star Wars Rebels is the latest thrilling addition to the Star Wars world. Set five years before Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, and fourteen years after Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, it follows a band of rebels reacting to the tyranny spreading throughout the Galaxy at the hands of the Empire.
The Imperial forces are ransacking the Galaxy for the last remaining Jedi Knights, whilst a rebellion is beginning to form aboard the freighter starship Ghost. The motely crew of rebels includes Ezra who, at just 14 years old, is the street smart hero of the show; Sabine, the Mandalorian graffiti artist and weapons expert; Kanau, the cowboy Jedi; and Hera, the commander of Ghost. As they fight the Empire’s forces, you’ll also spot a number of familiar faces from the Star Wars world, including Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, Obi-Wan Kenobi, R2-D2 and C-3PO.
Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, a 44 minute movie was first screened at the San Diego Comic-Con, before it premiered on the Disney Channel on October 3rd 2014. This was followed by the premier of the TV series on October 13th. The series contains 16 episodes, and can be seen on Disney XD. It’s sure to be a hit with Star Wars fans – particularly the artwork, which is inspired by the Ralph McQuarrie’s original concept for the first three Star Wars films.
