Lucasfilm and Disney will be airing some Star Wars Rebels shorts which will debut on Disney XD on Monday nights over the next four weeks. The first one, “The Machine in the Ghost” has already been posted online.
In the short, the Rebels’ starship, the Ghost, is under attack by a squad of TIE Fighters. Both the pilot, Hera, and fellow crew member and former Jedi, Kanan have different ideas on what should be fixed first by their astromech droid, Chopper. But Chopper takes matters into his own “hands” to get them out of their predicament they have found themselves in.
Star Wars Rebels will be premiering in October 2014 as a one-hour special on the Disney Channel, then will have a series airing on Disney XD.
