‘Star Wars Rebels’ Adds ‘The Machine In The Ghost’ Short

‘Star Wars Rebels’ Adds ‘The Machine In The Ghost’ Short Continuing to be high on our list of things to watch when it debuts this fall, the official YouTube channel for Star Wars has added a new three minute short for Star Wars Rebels for fans to check out. While a lot of fans were upset at the loss of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Disney is doing what it can to reassure fans and bring them into the fold for this new series. We’ve had a seven minute preview previously, lots of character shorts and more in the last few months and this latest piece plays up the action, banter and the music in a really solid way here, even if it has a few too many nods to the original trilogy.

The show is set to have a one-hour preview this fall before going into the full series itself on Disney XD. With the series exploring the time between the third and fourth installments and taking a lot of cues from the McQuarrie artwork, it’s settling in well to its design and has a lot of potential.

The series stars Freddie Prinze, Jr., Taylor Gray, Steve Blum, Tiya Sircar and Vanessa Marshall.

Plot concept: Set between the events of Episode III and IV — an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen. It takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.
