Star Wars Rebels Droids in Distress Free

Of the many new shows premiering this fall, only one is set in a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. That alone should be enough to ensure Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels gets plenty of attention, but Disney isn’t taking any chances.

The series kicked off over the weekend with the one-hour movie “Spark of Rebellion,” which was effectively the first two episodes combined into a premiere event. Now the regular series premiere, titled “Droids in Distress,” has been made available online for free — one week in advance of its scheduled air date. Hit the jump to find out how you can watch Droids in Distress free.

Agent Kallus Star Wars Rebels

The animated series Star Wars Rebels premieres on the Disney Channel tonight (at 9 ET/PT) and will then bounce to Mondays on Disney XD, beginning October 13.  The show is set in the period between episodes three and four — so between Revenge of the Sith and the original Star Wars — and features some original trilogy vibe as it tracks the rise of the Rebellion.

It sounds like we’ll see (or at least hear) the return of Darth Vader in the show — something that has been hinted at and rumored for months. And it seems as if James Earl Jones will be back to voice him. Below, check out that info, along with all these Rebels bits.

  • The official Star Wars site has an interview with producer Simon Kinberg.
  • Dave Filoni and Joel Aron talk about lightsabers in Rebels.
  • See a Rebels clip featuring Sabine Wren and Hera Syndulla and some creatures.

Star Wars Rebels

The first step to Episode VII takes place Friday night when Star Wars Rebels debuts on The Disney Channel. Set between Episodes III and IV, the cartoon is the first piece of new content being released under the Disneyfied Star Wars umbrella, which boasts a fully connected universe. Rebels is 100% part of the Star Wars canon and will not only set the tone for Episode VII next year, it will have teases toward it too. Plus, on it’s own, it’s a fantastic thrill-ride seeped in what makes Star Wars great. That doesn’t hurt.

For those reasons, Disney has the utmost confidence in the show and, the day before the first season premieres, they’ve already renewed Star Wars Rebels for Season 2. Read More »
