Disney has released a brand new clip from the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels, and yes, this is a clip from the premiere episode/movie Spark Of Rebellion, and not another short as we've seen these past few weeks. It features the entire Rebels crew on board The Ghost initiating a operation to free some Wookiee slaves, but before they can complete it, they encounter some unexpected, and unseen problems. The clip first appeared on the Watch Disney XD site with limited availability. Now our friends at the "Star Wars Rebels" Facebook page alerted us to a YouTube version of the clip, which you can watch below:
I have to say, this is the best clip I've seen yet. Previously we've only seen clips and shorts with one of the characters, or just a few of them together. This finally shows the entire crew together doing their thing. Also seeing the dynamics between the characters; Zeb's annoyance with Ezra and Hera's caring for him, for example. The mood also shifts several times, from emotional, to serious, to humor and tension. The Tarkin name-drop was a nice touch as well. My excitement for this series continues to grow!
Spark Of Rebellion, the one hour series premiere of Star Wars Rebels, will air initially on Disney Channel on October 3rd at 9pm ET/PT. Check out the full schedule or releases here.

Our friends at the Star Wars Rebels Facebook page alerted us to the news that veteran actor Greg Ellis confirmed a role of his in Star Wars Rebels. Know for roles in Star Trek(2009) and Pirates Of The Caribbean(2003), Ellis has also had an extensive voice acting career, which includes voicing Turk Falso in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, as well as providing his voice for video games such as Knights Of The Old Republic and The Old Republic. He confirmed on Twitter that his character appeared in the new Entanglement short:

It's unclear exactly which character is his, but we can assume he voiced the TIE Fighter pilot which features prominently in the short. IMDB claims that Ellis is voicing a character named "Baron Ruhdor" who is supposed to appear in the premiere episode Spark Of Rebellion.
Star Wars Rebels will make it's television premiere on Friday, October 3rd at 9:00pm ET/PT on Disney Channel. Click here to find out when and where you can watch the premiere elsewhere on TV and online.

Rise, Darth Vader!

We may be that much closer to a home video releases of the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, also know as "The Lost Missions". The 13 episode season premiered on Netflix in March of this year and streamed exclusively there until later coming to several other online platforms. Fans have become increasingly anxious as of late about getting completing their Clone Wars Disc collection. Last week we received word that the Season 6 was listed on the German Amazon site. Today, Star Wars-Union alerted us to the fact that those listings have been updated with preliminary artwork for both the DVD and Blu-ray releases, which you can see above and below:
Remember, this is only the German version, and preliminary art at that, so it could still change. We have had no word yet about when a home video release can be expected in the rest of the World, but we will be sure share that info when it surfaces. The release date for these sets are still November 20th, so perhaps we will know more by then.
