Obi-Wan (and some Wookiees) show up in new Star Wars: Rebels trailer

We’re less than two weeks away from the premiere of Disney XD’s Star Wars: Rebels, and now a canon-heavy new trailer has arrived to remind us how it all ties together.

Young-ish Obi-Wan Kenobi pops up to offer some encouragement to the Rebel crew manning the Ghost ship, and we also see a few young Wookiees with the gang — one of whom bears a striking resemblance to the first mate of a certain Millennium Falcon.

The series is set five years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, telling the story of the Rebellion’s beginnings while the Empire spreads tyranny through the galaxy. We also get to see a bit more of the show’s distinct visual style, which the design team based heavily on some of original trilogy concept artist Ralph McQuarrie’s works, which definitely brings a throwback look.

Now let's just hope the show is actually good. Fingers crossed. Check out the new trailer below and let us know what you think:

The series premieres Friday, Oct. 3, at 9 p.m. on Disney Channel.
