The moment we’ve all been waiting for will arrive on Sunday, May the Fourth! The first Star Wars Rebels trailer will debut early Sunday morning at 3:01 a.m. ET/12:01 PT on several websites, including YouTube, Star Wars, Disney, Disney XD, Disney Channel, ABC, and ESPN. All links will go live at the aforementioned times. Additionally, the trailer will air during Disney XD’s Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles – Escape from the Jedi Temple on Sunday at 7 ET/PT.
To prepare us for the weekend, ABC’s Good Morning America will air a 30-second sneak peek of the trailer on Friday, May 2.
What I find most impressive is how far the trailer will reach internationally. Star Wars fans from more than 50 countries across Europe, Latin America, Africa, and many more locations will also partake in this global reveal.
For Star Wars: The Clone Wars, most of the trailers were about 2 minutes long. I say we could expect the same for Rebels. I’m sure we’ll see some stormtrooper action, as seen in the picture below. Also interesting to note, Rebels Report highlighted the fact that there are Wookiees in the background with binders secured around their wrists. Not surprising, since the Empire was known for perpetuating slavery across the galaxy. No doubt the stormtroopers are shooting at the Rebels. Let’s not forget that there is a book called “Ezra’s Wookiee Rescue,” so this may be Ezra’s attempt to stop the injustice from happening.
I wonder what other exciting bits we’ll get to see in the trailer! What are you looking forward to seeing the most?
