The first of four all-new “Star Wars Rebels” shorts will be airing tonight after “Gravity Falls” (9:00 PM ET/PT) on Disney XD.
A new “Star Wars Rebels” short will debut on Disney XD each Monday night over the next four weeks.
Tonight’s short (embedded above) is entitled “The Machine in the Ghost“, a clever play on the concept of “a ghost in the machine”. Here the Ghost is the starship and the machine inside refers to C1-10P aka Chopper, the rebuilt astromech droid that showrunner Dave Filoni likened to a grumpy, willful housecat.
These shorts are in advance of the upcoming 1 hour Star Wars Rebels premiere scheduled for October.
