Disney XD has released a Star Wars Rebels short online. The animated series will take place about 14 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith and centers on the fledgling rebellion as the Empire hunts down the last of the Jedi Knights to secure rule of the galaxy. While we’ve had featurettes introducing the villains and even the first seven minutes of the series, this short is interesting because it directly introduces a character even though I’m not sure this will be part of an episode. If it stands alone, it’s a neat way of introducing Sabine (voiced by Tiya Sircar) without any talking heads explaining who she is.
Hit the jump to check out the Star Wars Rebels short, “Art Attack”. Star Wars Rebels premieres on Disney XD this October, and also features the voices of Freddie Prinze Jr., David Oyelowo, Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray, and Steven Jay Blum.

Official Star Wars Rebels synopsis:
Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes.
