Star Wars Rebels (television) Series on Disney XD, beginning October 13, 2014. It was preceded by a special one-hour television movie, Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, airing on October 3 on Disney Channels worldwide. The story unfolds during a dark time when the evil Galactic Empire is tightening its grip of power on the galaxy. Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet and are ruining the lives of its people. The motley but clever crew of the starship “Ghost”—cowboy Jedi Kanan, ace pilot Hera, street-smart teenager Ezra, the “muscle” Zeb, warrior firebrand Sabine, and cantankerous old astromech droid Chopper—is among a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together they face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion. Voices include Freddie Prinze Jr. (Kanan), Vanessa Marshall (Hera), Steve Blum (Zeb), Tiya Sircar (Sabine), Taylor Gray (Ezra), David Oyelowo (Agent Kallus), Jason Isaacs (the Inquisitor).
