After watching the first seven minutes (watch it again here) of Star Wars Rebels we here at Mania cannot wait for this series to begin. It sounds strange, but when that catalogue of sound effects, the ones we hadn’t heard in forever, echoed throughout the speakers, it gave us chills. Star Wars is back and the next couple of years are going to be glorious. Check out this new spot that was posted on the Disney XD site below. 

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 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.

 LOL! That was the same thing I noticed.  As soon as I heard the sound FX it sounded so much like Star Wars.

Weren't these sound FX present during the 6 seasons of Clone Wars too?

 I think it all came down to the sound of the TIE Fighters. True, many of others had been used before... but that ONE... wow

 I agree completely.  But for me, it's not just about the sounds that are enticing.  It's the visuals of Star Destroyers hovering over planets, showdowns with fearsome lightsaber wielding badguys, rebels running away from Imperial entanglements, snark, swashbuckling, scum and villainy that was missing from the PT.  Don't get me wrong, I really liked the Clone Wars.  It put the WARS in STAR WARS, but from what I'm seeing and like you said hearing from SWR, I got higher hopes.
