Star Wars: Rebels is an animated series that premiered on Disney Channel and Disney XD in October, 2014. The series takes place between Star Wars Episodes III and IV, approximately 14 years after the formation of the Galactic Empire. Rebels reveals an aggressive and powerful Empire increasing its repressive hold across the galaxy, while the Rebellion is struggling to effectively organize against the Imperials. The Emperor's issue of Order 66 or Jedi Purge has also resulted in the continued hunting of underground Jedi by Imperial forces.
Like the rest of the Star Wars Universe, Rebels lends itself to educational ties that will help students make powerful connections to Social Studies, Science, English/Language Arts, the Arts, Math and more. Our goal is to provide educators with these connections as the Rebels series plays out each week on Disney XD.
A 14 year old human boy who resides on the Imperial controlled planet of Lothal. Ezra survives as a talented con artist, usually at the expense of Imperial forces. Ezra later discovers himself to be Force-sensitive.
A strong-willed Twi'lek who owns and pilots the Ghost, the spaceship of the heroes.
A Jedi who survived Order 66, Kanan is the leader of the Ghost's crew.
A Mandalorian weapons and explosives expert who also specializes in graffiti and "artisitc expression" against the Empire.
A very large Lasat who serves as the Ghost crew's muscle and carries himself with a surprising sense of witt and humor.
Also known by his designation, C1-10P, "Chopper" is an astromech droid that was constructed by Hera. He is known for his strong strong will and inabliity to follow exact orders from the Ghost crew.
Not much is known about the Empire’s Imperial Inquisitor. A Pau’an male, he was tasked by Darth Vader to hunt down any surviving Jedi Knights. The Inquistor was an intimidating figure, dressed in all black and wielding a red, double-bladed lightsaber.
Agent Kallus was an officer of the Imperial Security Bureau, specifically charged with eliminating any rebel threats. His Imperial code name was ISB-021, a low number indicating his high rank. Adept at hand-to-hand combat, Kallus was deadly in the field, and took special interest in eliminating the Ghost crew.
