Star Wars: Rebels Extended Trailer Proves That Where There’s a Will, There’s a Jedi

We were decidedly underwhelmed by the first trailer for Star Wars: Rebels, worrying that the show was way too directed at Disney XD’s kid audience. But now the first extended trailer has dropped, and we’re getting much more of a Clone Wars vibe. You could say that we’re feeling… a new hope about this series.

Set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Star Wars: Rebels kicks off with Obi-Wan Kenobi’s hologram announcement that the Jedi and the Republic have fallen to the Empire. The Rebel Alliance is a long way off, but here we’ve got a ragtag crew including a Mandalorian girl named Sabine, a silly droid, Twi’lek pilot Hera, Force-sensitive orphan Ezra, and a Jedi named Zeb. We even glimpse Zeb teaching Ezra how to wield his first lightsaber. There will always be Jedi on the fringes, which this series looks to explore.
