Star Wars Rebels is rapidly approaching. It’s premiere on Disney XD is coming up this October, and the makers of the series have now released a special 7-minute preview. 

Check it out:

In this special extended preview of Star Wars Rebels, the Empire arrives on Lothal — bringing tyranny with them. Imperials and stormtroopers establish an intimidating presence on the planet, enforcing strict new laws for trade and arresting citizens for expressing dissent of any kind. A young boy named Ezra, however, discovers that a mysterious group is attempting to steal cargo from the Empire. Intrigued, he tries to take it for himself – and ends up on the run from both Imperials and this small band of rebels.

Star Wars Rebels, set between Episodes III and IV of the Star Wars saga, will premiere in October 2014 with a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, and will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

I don’t do cartoons, but this looks pretty good. What do you think? Do you think it will stand up to Clone Wars? I never saw that one, but I know it had quite a rabid fan base.
