Star Wars Rebels: Watch All Minisodes Online Here – Chopper, Sabine, Zeb and Ezra Fight The Empire [VIDEO]
Are you ready for a return to the Star Wars universe and its surrounding Disney-organized multimedia onslaught? Well, you can get in the right anti-imperialist mindset for the first of the Mouse Empire's offerings, Star Wars: Rebels, by watching these YouTube shorts introducing your favorite new starship crew.
Although Clone Wars creator Dave Filoni is still involved, new writers Simon Kinberg (xXx: State Of The Union) and Greg Weisman (Gargoyles) should make this a somewhat different experience. Surely, the more primary-colored look of the show is already a bit of a departure from the show that introduced Ahsoka Tano to us. If that's a good or bad thing, I'll leave up to you.
In "The Machine In The Ghost", we see the trials and tribulations of Chopper, the Ghost's astromech droid who has an emphatically different personality to R2-D2, as he tries to make life bearable while trying to deal with two bickering/flirting humanoids.
In "Art Attack", Mandalorian tagger Sabine Wren shows how much of an impact art can have when used properly against a totalitarian space-state. Explosions help, too.
In "Entanglement", Lasat mercenary Zeb Orellios (based on Ralph McQuarrie's original concept drawings for Chewbacca back in the seventies) is late for a meeting with other main character Kanan because stormtroopers are jerks.
In "Not What You Think", young hustler Ezra Bridger comes across a downed TIE fighter and offers his help to the less than gracious Imperial inside.
Star Wars: Rebels premieres on Disney Channel October 3 and Disney XD October 13.
