SWRebelsStar Wars Rebels in the new animated Star Wars series from Disney. The first episode “Spark of Rebellion” is out and it shows great promise. While still a kids show, the series seems to realize that a large number of it’s audience will be adults.

Taking place between Revenge Of The Sith and A New Hope, the story will follow Ezra, a teenage street kid, as he joins a group of rebels in the early stages of the rebellion against the empire. Not surprisingly, one of the members of the the rebel band is a jedi in hiding, and future teacher of Ezra.

At the end of the first episode we also get a glimpse of the main villain, the Inquisitor… a jedi hunter.

    I’m with you – this was a pretty solid initial effort. I watched the 1 hr “movie” pilot and enjoyed it. What I like about both this and Clone Wars is that they don’t shy away from death. In the cartoons I remember as a kid nobody EVER died. In these, clones, stormtroopers, even Jedi get knocked off all the time. Its the LucasArts answer to Game of Thrones.
