Star Wars Rebels is an animated series on Disney XD. It is a follow-up to Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and a prologue to Star Wars: A New Hope. The series follows a young street orphan named Ezra Bridger on the distant planet of Lothal. At this time, the Jedi Knights are extinct, and the evil Emperor Palpatine and the Galactic Empire are spreading fear and tyranny across the galaxy. All hope of rebelling against this unspeakable evil seem pointless, until young Bridger comes across a ragtag group of rebels who take up arms against the Empire and inspire hope in others. After countless mishaps, Bridger decides to join the rebel crew, which consists of former Jedi Kanan Jarrus, a feisty Mandalorian teenager named Sabine Wren, Twi’lek pilot Hera Syndulla, an intimidating Lasat warrior named Zeb Orrelios, and humorous but also mischievous astromech droid Chopper. The crew faces minor formidable storm troopers and mysterious but also deadly Sith Lords!
