New ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Short: Ezra Vs. A TIE Fighter is “Not What You Think”

The beginning of September marks just over a month remaining until ‘Star Wars Rebels‘ begins our descent into unexplored periods of ‘Star Wars‘ history, so why wait to get in on the fun? The fourth short clip from the new Disney XD animated series has arrived, offering a major clue into how Ezra Bridger (Taylor Gray) aligns with the crew of the starship Ghost.

Dubbed “Not What You Think,” The latest ‘Star Wars Rebels’ short clip arrived Monday after Disney XD’s ‘Gravity Falls’ (9:00 P.M.), the fourth all-new short to air in promotion of the new series. Following last week’s brawl with the brutish, but intelligent Zeb (Steven Blum), the newest clip sees Ezra scavenging a TIE fighter downed by the Ghost crew, though the surviving Imperial pilot is none-too-pleased with the “assistance.” But boy, that Ezra’s got some curiously fast reflexes, no?

Premiering October 6 on Disney XD (or earlier), ‘Star Wars Rebels’ features a cast that also includes Twi’lek pilot Hera (Vanessa Marshall), cowboy Jedi Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.), snarky Mandalorian explosives expert Sabine (Tiya Sircar), and cat-like astromech droid Chopper. ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ star David Oyelowo will play the recurring villain Agent Kallus, while ‘Harry Potter‘ baddie Jason Isaacs voices the Jedi-hunting Inquisitor.

Picking up where the canceled ‘Clone Wars‘ left off, ‘Star Wars Rebels’ features on the creative side screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg (‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘), who wrote the first episode. Here’s everything we know from the official ‘Star Wars Rebels’ logline:

‘Star Wars Rebels’ continues the epic tradition of the legendary ‘Star Wars’ saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people.

But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship “Ghost.” Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes.
