If you don’t have Disney Channel, then you’re going to want to get it fast so you can watch Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion when it airs on the channel worldwide on October 3rd. This one-hour movie is the prelude to the new Star Wars Rebels series which will be airing on Disney XD beginning on Monday, October 13th. From StarWars.com:
Set between the events of Star Wars: Episodes III and IV, the story unfolds during a dark time when the evil Galactic Empire is tightening its grip of power on the galaxy. Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet and are ruining the lives of its people. The motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost — cowboy Jedi Kanan, ace pilot Hera, street-smart teenager Ezra, the “muscle” Zeb, warrior firebrand Sabine, and cantankerous old astromech droid Chopper — is among a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, they will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures, and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.
The series was created by Dave Filoni who was also behind Star Wars: The Clone Wars, along with Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes), and Carrie Beck. The voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus, and Jason Isaacs as the Inquisitor.
