Lucasfilm is releasing the first seven minutes of upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels tonight, August 4, at 8/7c on Disney XD, right after Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars. Not a Phineas and Ferb watcher? We have you covered; you can watch it right here, when the link goes live tonight at 9PM Pacific:
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.
Scheduled to premiere this October as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
