If you weren't already over-excited about the arrival of Star Wars Rebels on our screens (and if not, why not? It's Star Wars!) then fear not - the show has just released a pair of clips that might just get you there.

Teasing the first episode in the series' regular Disney XD slot, “Droids in Distress,” the clips show off both Rebels' light heart - and a cameoing pair of droids straight from the movies.

They also noticeably highlight just how influenced the show is by the classic sci-fi western Firefly, with Freddie Prinze Jr.'s Kanan Jarrus particularly similar to that series' Mal Reynolds.

Which, of course, is a very good thing, since Firefly was one of the greatest (if sadly cancelled) shows of the past two decades.

So - Star Wars Rebels may be set to not only keep us going till [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158) arrives, but also to give us a glimpse of what might have been...

What do you guys think?
