Last night’s Star Wars Rebels Comic-Con panel featuring guests Dave Filoni (Executive Producer), Simon Kinberg (Executive Producer), Freddie Prinze Jr. (Kanan), Vanessa Marshall (Hera), Taylor Gray (Ezra), Steve Blum (Zeb) and Tiya Sircar (Sabine) debuted new clips from the upcoming series premiere.
The first of two Star Wars Rebels Comic-Con clips introduces the Inquisitor whom has tracked down Kanan and Ezra with the intention of terminating them both. We learn in this clip that the Inquisitor has Force powers, Ezra is quick on his feet, and Kanan is creative when it comes to protecting his Padawan’s life.
The second clip follows Ezra as he tries to evade a squadron of Stormtroopers. Lucky for him Zeb comes to the rescue piloting a Tie Fighter, recalling the final act of Return of the Jedi when Chewbacca commands an AT-ST Walker with the help of his Ewok friends.
Sadly we still don’t have a Star Wars Rebels premiere date other than to confirm it will fall in October. If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the Star Wars Rebels Comic-Con trailer full of exciting new footage.
