The hype surrounding Star Wars Rebels seems to have overshadowed even Star Wars Episode VII as of late. That's due in part thanks to a wealth of new clips from the new animated series that have been released online. Today we received a short titled The Machine In The Ghost featuring Kanan, Hera and Chopper in the midst of a dogfight in space aboard The Ghost. You can watch it here:
I personally love this short. The look, feel and tone of Rebels is supposed to be very close to Episode IV: A New Hope. Many of the shots in this clip are nearly identical to scenes in A New Hope, as you can see below. Those who've already seen the first episode of the show say it very much captures the magic of the very first film of the Saga. This will certainly be a treat for adults who grew up that film, and to children who may be experiencing Star Wars for the first time through this series.
Star Wars Rebels comes to the Disney Channel and Disney XD this October!
