A close friend of mine on Tumblr recently wrote about a Disney XD advertisement that will appeal to all Star Wars fans, “Wow. Disney XD is already advertising for Star Wars Rebels. Apparently it’s going to be on Saturday mornings.”
I had to quickly find out more about this advertisement, so I tuned in to the Disney XD stream online and saw the commercial for myself before locating it in Disney XD’s official YouTube channel. It’s a bit weird, to say the least, mainly because it has a rapping llama in it. Steve the Llama lays out the 2014 lineup for us. In the advert, we see the Ghost up close in action, fending off attacks from TIE Figthers and an Imperial Cruiser. Also, Star Wars Rebels will take place on Saturday mornings:
Thanks again to my dear friend on Tumblr for catching this and writing a post about it, which then caught my attention!
While Googling earlier this morning, I found that there was another Disney XD advertisement with the same Star Wars Rebels animation from the advertisement mentioned above. That ad is #2 and the following ad is #1 (prepare to see more of Steve the rapping llama):
Also, Pete Morrison of Lightsaber Rattling brings up some valid points about possibly seeing Star Wars Rebels on Sundays with the Marvel Block, since the video doesn’t really specify. Check it out here. Personally, I think it’s on a Saturday given the following image with Star Wars Rebels being associated with these specific Saturday morning cartoons. However, it would make more sense if Rebels appeared with similar programming, such as Avengers Assemble and Ultimate Spider-Man. We’ll have to wait and see until the official schedule is released!
Which day would you prefer? Do you see Rebels as a Saturday or Sunday morning cartoon? Or do you prefer the evenings? Let me know in the comments.
