Lucasfilm and Disney have given me five copies of "Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion" to give away to lucky readers. All you have to do is be one of the first five people to answer the following question and e-mail it to me at [email protected] Here you go:

In "Star Wars Rebels," the appearance of one member of the starship Ghost's crew is based on the original concept art for Chewbacca. Name the character and the artist who designed him.

Deadline to enter is Sunday, October 19th at 12:00AM Central time.

"Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion" comes out on DVD this week. The release includes the 43-minugte pilot episode. Bonus material includes the four “Star Wars Rebels” animated online shorts, a 3D model of the Ghost, and a preview of the upcoming first season from behind the scenes.

The story unfolds during a dark time when the evil Empire is tightening its grip of power on the galaxy. Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet and are ruining the lives of its people. The motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost -- cowboy Jedi Kanan, ace pilot Hera, street-smart teenager Ezra, the "muscle" Zeb, explosives expert Sabine, and cantankerous old astromech droid Chopper -- is among a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, they will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.

"Star Wars Rebels" is created by Dave Filoni ("Star Wars: The Clone Wars"), Simon Kinberg ("X-Men: Days of Future Past," "Sherlock Holmes"), and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is also executive-produced by Filoni and Kinberg as well as Greg Weisman ("Gargoyles").

The talented voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus and Jason Isaacs as the Inquisitor.

"Star Wars Rebels" airs Monday Nights at 9p/8c on Disney XD.
