The Star Wars Rebels premiere is just around the corner, and with all the focus on the new Star Wars film trilogy coming next year, it's been easy to overlook.

But with Avatar: The Last Airbender producer Dave Filoni at the helm alongside Simon Kinberg of X-Men fame, the series is shaping up to offer a new perspective on the well-trodden ground.

Set 14 years after Revenge of the Sith, Rebels takes place during a period of clashes between citizens of the Empire, whilst the remaining Jedi Knights are on the run and fighting for survival.

Freddie Prinze, Jr. voices Kanan Jarrus, a renegade Jedi, while Taylor Gray does the honours for 14 year-old conman Ezra Bridger. Jason Isaacs, Steven Blum and Tiya Sircar also star.

A new 3-minute clip released by Lucasfilm shows a fun skirmish between Ezra and an imperial officer who crashes into the planet of Lothal. Ezra takes the opportunity to loot his ship, natch.

Look out for his super awesome laser beam shooting slingshot, too.

Rebels premieres October 3.
