Disney XDâs new Star Wars: Rebels animated series is almost eight episodes into its debut season, and itâs really starting to hit its stride. In case you havenât been setting your DVR accordingly â or if you donât get the Disney nets in your TV programming package â StarWars.com is hosting the first five episodes for free.
We should all have a bit of holiday downtime, and if youâre looking for something to fill the space around football and cable marathons, this is an excellent way to burn a few hours. The pilot episode takes a while to ramp up, but by episodes four and five the show is really starting to dig into the depth of the Star Wars mythology.
So if youâre nowhere near one of the 20 lucky theaters participating in The Force Awakens preview, just pull out the laptop and enjoy some shiny new Star Wars goodies.
Check out the extended pilot âSpark of Rebellionâ below, and head to StarWars.com for all five episodes:
The episodes will be available to stream through Dec. 7. What do you think of the series?
