Watch the first 7 minutes of new animated series 'Star Wars Rebels'

Star Wars Rebels

(Disney XD)

Ezra (Taylor Gray) was just going about his ordinary day on Lothal—stealing exotic fruits, messing with Imperial minions—but then he had to get caught in a chase scene.

Disney XD has released a preview for its upcoming Star Wars Rebels, and it includes all the speeder bike racing you might want. Along the way, the show also introduces Kanan (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), a Jedi with a secret, and Sabine (Tiya Sircar), who wears a Boba Fett-like helmet. Rebels takes place between Episodes III and IV of the Star Wars saga and traces the rise of the Rebel Alliance as the empire continues to exert control across the galaxy. The series will premiere this October with a one-hour special on the Disney Channel, following by a series on Disney XD.
