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.

Scheduled to premiere in the fall as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

 DarkXid - wrong hole...   The cast does look a little young, but I will still check this out.

I really hope this captures the mood of Clone Wars. If its too kiddy, I can't watch it.

 Does that guy really have a sling-shot laser?! Come on, now.

Im afraid so wars version of Bart

With all of the archery popularity lately, I'm surprised that light slingshot wasn't a light bow & arrow.  But I guess it would have looked too much like that old Dungeons & Dragons cartoon...

And that's the Jar-Jar of droids.  Square him off against R2 in BattleBots and be done with him.

Well they could have used a light bow and arrow. They have before in the Clone Wars. The sisters used them. It would've looked better than a light sling shot.

I think Disney/Lucasfilm missed a great opportunity. They should change the release date to May 4th, 2017 then it would be exactly 40 years since the first movie was released. I don't think 6 months will kill anyone and it will give them more time to get the movie right.

This looks like _______.  [Insert the sound of me farting]

I know Clone Wars. And this is no Clone Wars.
