Just after I wrote about the sixth series of Clone Wars, I started to find material on Rebels, a cartoon that failed to set my sock on fire when I first read of it. However, the videos which recently hit the web have changed my mind for the better.
Set between Episodes III and IV (Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope to you and me), the latest animated Star Wars series takes a very different approach to its predecessor and follows the rebellion. With Dave Filoni (Clone Wars), Greg Weismann (Young Justice) and Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class and the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII spin-off) on hand as executive producers, this should be an outstanding cartoon worth checking out. Details have been slowly coming through (toys have debuted giving fans an idea of what they will see) but now we have three character-centric videos that offer up much more information.
The series will premiere in the Fall with a special one hour showing on Disney XD.
