A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....
Exploring the 20-year stretch of Star Wars history between Episode III and Episode IV, Star Wars Rebels is a hit Disney XD animated series. The all-new Cinestory Comic includes three episodes of adventure in comic-style screen captures from season one.
Imperial oppression on Lothal grows stronger and the rebels must seek out new allies and resources to sustain their fight against the evil Empire. The crew of the Ghost joins forces with another rebel cell: ex-clone troopers who fought in the Clone Wars. As the rebels grow in number, so will their enemies. Through dangerous rescue missions, thrilling space chases, and spectacular lightsaber duels – the bond of our rebel crew will be put to the test like never before.
Even thought the comic is titled after the Star Wars Rebels Season One premiere, Spark of Rebellion, it adapts the first five episodes of the series. These are, Spark of Rebellion, Droids in Distress, Fighter Flight, Rise of the Old Masters and Breaking Ranks. It features no new art, but rather uses stills from television series.
