Catch up on the first five episodes of Star Wars: Rebels for free this Thanksgiving

Disney XD’s new Star Wars: Rebels animated series is almost eight episodes into its debut season, and it’s really starting to hit its stride. In case you haven’t been setting your DVR accordingly — or if you don’t get the Disney nets in your TV programming package — is hosting the first five episodes for free.

We should all have a bit of holiday downtime, and if you’re 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 you’re 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 “Spark of Rebellion” below, and head to for all five episodes:
