During San Diego Comic-Con, Disney and Lucasfilm relased a few clips from the upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated series. They even released a clip dubbed an "extended trailer" which ran 2 minutes and 28 seconds. Well, it seems that under 3 minutes was just not enough. After teasing a first look following Phineas & Ferb Star Wars, they released a 7+ minute extended preview for the show!
Here's the official word on the preview and series:
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.
