Star-Wars-Rebels-150

As part of the premiere tonight on Disney XD of the new sci-fi-meets-toons special Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars (7:30-8:30 p.m. ET/PT), the channel is throwing in a sneak peek at the first 7 minutes of footage from the upcoming CG-animated series Star Wars Rebels. The show will premiere with a one-hour special on Disney Channel this October, followed by series launches on XD channels around the world. The Force-ful evening of XD programming will also include a Star Wars themed episode of live-action martial arts comedy Kickin’ It.

Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary saga with all-new action-packed adventures. Set in a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world, the series begins as 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 Ghost is among 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.

    this is worse than clone wars… 3d models are good but the animation is quite weak… not impressed.

    I would give it a try IF the Walt Disney Co were willing to broadcast this on the Disney Channel / ABC Network (the fact its getting dumped onto DisneyXD is an epic fail, which means its going to end up like TRON Uprising, where a fan base is going to be forced to buy digital content – OR torrent download) ….
