New York Comic Con attendees will get a special preview of the second season of Disney XD's "Star Wars Rebels."
Two new episodes, featuring the series debuts of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" characters Captain Rex, Captain Gregor and Commander Wolffe, will be screened Thursday, Oct. 8, at 5:30 p.m. A "Star Wars Rebels" panel will be held earlier that day.
As viewers saw in June in the one-hour TV movie “The Siege of Lothal,” the crew of the Ghost has emerged as a real threat to the Empire, leading Darth Vader to be assigned to deal with these rebels. Undeterred, they respond by seeking out old friend and new allies in a bid to rally the formidable alliance that began to emerge in the first season.
New York Comic Con will be held Oct. 8-11 in New York City. "Star Wars Rebels" returns this fall on Disney XD.
