Tonight on Disney XD, the second Star Wars Rebels short will air. This will be the second of four shorts teasing us until the series premiere (watch the first one HERE). It is great to watch them on a big screen and in HD. However, if you cannot wait, Check out Sabine’s (voiced by Tiya Sircar) version of a distraction at the bottom. I love the Ralph McQuarrie Han Solo likeness that turns up in this short!

Synopsis: In “Art Attack,” a special Star Wars Rebels short, Sabine sneaks into an Imperial compound, looking to create a diversion for her friends aboard the Ghost. Spotted by stormtroopers, she proves too quick to be captured – and leaves behind an explosive surprise.

Scheduled to premiere in October 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, Star Wars Rebels will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

Short was meh.  Chick that has too good of skills making Storm troopers look like idoits, girl power again.   I was rooting for the Storm troopers.  I have a bad feeling about this series.  I am dreading the light slingshot in action.

 Storm Troopers haven't changed since we first saw them in 1977.  They fire on Sabine and of course miss by a mile.  Do those guys ever hit anything?  They might be more accurate without those silly (though stylish) helmets.  Of course one of the Storm Troopers gets the drop on Sabine, but rather than pull the trigger and blow a hole in her back, he gives her a heads up - dumb.

I can't be too critical of this, it's a kids show on a kids network.  Disney didn't make this for me. I expect the 9-13 year old target audience will eat it up (even without a broad understanding of the back story). 

I can't comprehend the disdain for the proposed light slingshot.  Does a light sabre, flimsy looking white plastic body armor, or jet fighter dog fights in space make any sense.  Like always enjoying this series will be about your ability to suspend your disbelief and getting in touch with your inner adolescent.

This show has a way to go before it gives Disney XD's animated series Gravity Falls a run for it's money.
