I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but we here at Geek Beat have a certain fondness for Star Wars. We were pretty excited when Star Wars Rebels was announced, and were downright thrilled when Disney released this 7 minute first look at the show.
Star Wars Rebels is a CGI TV series set to premier this October. It’s set about 14 years after Episode III and 5 years before Episode IV. The Imperial hunt for the last few remaining Jedi is under way, while a young Rebel Alliance slowly starts to gain underground power. The focus of the show is on a small group of characters who are part of that early rebellion, all of whom have been affected by the Imperials in one way or another. In this preview, we see the formation of the core of that group as we’re introduced to the main characters.
If you don’t mind your Star Wars in cartoon form, this is likely to hit the spot just fine for you. If, like Watto, you prefer something a bit more real, then you’ll have to wait until next year when Episode VII hits. Watch the preview and let us know what you think! Or don’t, and let us know why not. You can get hold of us in the comments, on the forums, or on social media!
