With less than five weeks till the premier of Star War: Rebels Disney is amping up the promotion with yet another clip. This time featuring the whole crew together we get a nice Firefly vibe and a solid idea of the tone they are going for with the new series. Check it out!
There isn’t much action (though Zeb does get a nice smack in) but the banter and atmosphere is top notch. Reminiscent of Mal and the crew of Serenity huddled together in the cockpit or the dining area going over pre mission strategies. Or, for a more recent example, the Guardians standing around like a bunch of jackasses in a circle before heading out on their suicide mission. It’s nice to see that this series will put some effort into making their characters fully realized.
The proceedings also have a much more serialized feel to them as opposed to the isolated mission structure The Clone Wars had. All in all Rebels is shaping up to be something special and I can’t wait for it to finally air.
Star Wars: Rebels premiers October 3rd with Spark of Rebellion and the full series begins October 13th. Tell me what you think of the series in the comments below and don’t forget to check back in to OTL News for all things Star Wars!
