Just a few weeks before Star Wars Rebels makes its premiere on Disney XD, the marketing team has unveiled a brand new trailer for the made for TV movie, which will be followed by the series itself. Hit the jump to check it out.

Response for the first few episodes have been well received. I for one could never really get into Clone Wars, but I’ve heard some good things about that series, so maybe I should catch up on it. Based on interviews with the cast and executive producer Simon Kinberg, we know that Rebels is canon and will take place just before the events of A New Hope. How the series will establish it’s connection to Star Wars itself remains to be seen.

Star Wars Rebels: The Movie premieres Friday, October 3 at 9p on Disney Channel!

Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.
