Three new TV spots have popped up for Disney XD’s animated series Star Wars Rebels.  Dante and I are excited for the new series and as a parent I’m much happier that they will focus on Rebel heroes and not the glory days of a Sith Lord.  I was always uneasy about cheering for Anakin in The Clone Wars.

There have been rumors that some characters and ideas for Episode VII might make there way into the show.   As if we need any other incentive to watch with new series.  Star Wars Rebels premieres on Disney XD on October 13th.
