Star Wars Rebels the new Disney Series Premiere starts Monday, October 13, 2014 on Disney XD. (check local channel for time)
The series is set between the events that happened in Star Wars Episodes III and IV.
The Evil Galactic Empire’s grip on the Galaxy is getting tighter. Imperial forces have occupied the planet and a crew of the Starship “Ghost” are some of the few brave enough to stand up and fight the Empire.
The adventures focus on Ezra, a street-smart teenage boy who has joined a small band of rebels that engage in daring missions of sabotage and resistance against the Empire. Members of this rag-tag group of rebels include Kanan, a cowboy Jedi; Hera, an ace Twi’lek pilot; Sabine, a Mandalorian street artist who happens to be an explosives expert; Zeb, an agile fighter and the “muscle” of the group; and Chopper, the grumpy but good-hearted droid. Together this motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost face threatening villains, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.
The crew includes:
- Cowboy Jedi Kanan Jarrus (Freddie Prince Jr.) who has a secret Jedi past. He no longer carries light saber and instead chooses a blaster as his choice of weapons.
- Ace Pilot Hera Syndulla (Vanessa Marshall) is strong-willed and keeps the tem together, Street-smart teen Ezra Bridger (Taylor Gray) is a 14 year old con artist but not a bad kid, Zeb the “Muscle” Orrelios (Steve Blum) is the team tough guy who is a well trained honor guard and highly educated.
- Warrior Sabine Wren (Tiya Sircar) is a key member of the team and loves to blow things up. She is also an artist which is reflected in her wardrobe and hair.
- Chopper, the old and cantankerous droid.
The villains include:
- The Inquisitor (Jason Isaacs) is the main villain who is sent out by Darth Vader to hunt down the remaining Jedi Knights.
- Agent Kallus (David Oyelowo) is an Imperial Security Bureau (ISB) Agent. His job is making sure everyone stays loyal or is taken out.
