Star Wars Rebels

Star Wars Rebels latest Animated series from Lucasarts since Desney decided to cancel the CloneWars series. Timeline is 14 years after Revenge of Sith Movie and 5 year before New Hope Movie. It's telling a story which happened before forming of the Rebel Alliance. A group of Smugglers who steals from Empire and fighting against when they can. All main characters are new.

Renegade Jedi padawan has taken a new identity called Kanan Jarrus started a new life as a smuggler. He is the smaller group of smugglers and they mind this force sensitive street boy who join their group after a brief adventure. Also there are alien enforcer Zeb, explosives expert Sabine, and Chopper, the cantankerous droid whom reminds R2D2. Well you can't have a Starwars series without this kinda droid can we ? That's what Pilot episode shows which is called Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion (Here).

I think story line is interesting and Animations are lot better than CloneWars series 3D Graphics. The story showing as an angle which hasn't explored before since none of these characters had been used before in any StarWars universe books or movies. But I'm really sad about cancellation of CloneWars series. They should have finished it before starting this one. I guess Disney wanted something their own than from those old stuff. You can buy the DVD of this pilot episode for $12 or you can watch it online. I hope this series will prove Disney can do something new and good for StarWars Universe.
