There's a lot I like (leaving Lothal, expanding the Rebel Alliance) and plenty I don't (that stupid pirate from Clone Wars, Capt Rex).
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Great trailer!  I'm genuinely surprised that it was about 2 minutes long and featured SO MUCH of Vader.  I always got the sense that the series was going to skirt the fringes of the Empire and that the Emporer and Vader would be dealt with in passing.  As for the voices of the Emporer and Vader?  The voices were DEAD ON!  I was left wondering if REBELS actually managed to get Ian McDiarmid and James Earl Jones on board for some voiceover work.  And Vader taking on those A-Wings in his personal TIE Fighter?  That was fantastic!

It also looks like there might be at least another Inquisitor in the mix.  Because there were a number of red lightsabers featured in that trailer.

The red lightsaber staff definitely caught my attention and got the wheels spinning.  I think that may be a hint at the return of Asajj Ventress.  Her storyline never got fully resolved at the end of CLONE WARS and she went underground.  The individual with that lightsaber staff didn't seem overly hostile to someone with a blue lightsaber in one shot, and also had a hat on that looked reminiscent of something the Night Sisters wore.

Overall, the tie-ins with CLONE WARS seem substantial.  We know Ahsoka is back in the mix.  Asajj Ventress may be a factor, too.  And now we're going to see Rex and some of the 501st Clone Troopers as well?  It leaves me wondering how Filoni and company will write around Order 66 and especially Anakin's use of the 501st in the sacking of the Jedi Temple.

I'd put odds on Barris being the female Inquisitor before I would Ventress, but it's hard to say at this point. I do think we'll see Ventress again in some form somewhere.

It was all but confirmed when Filoni said her ship (that was going to be in CW) will show up in Rebels.

Okay, this is looking so much better than Season 1.  I like the conflict/fighting that was shown.  Hearkens back to Clone Wars to me, which was sorely missed in Season 1.  Really looking forward to having Rex and a few of the other clones back in the mix.  Should be a fun season to watch!

This is from one of the SW.com liveblogs: "No air dates have been nailed down yet for Season two."

Details for season 2's premier are up on the official site...  Coming sooner than you expected maybe?

Star Wars: Rebels Season 2, Premieres 6/20 at 9:00 on Disney XD with a 1 Hour Movie "The Siege of Lothal"

So June already?  I figured nothing new till next Fall.

After that though, new episodes will wait till the Fall, but still satiating fans to keep it fresh is a pretty solid idea.

Check out this USA Today video.  REBELS series Director Dave Filoni and voice actress Ashley Eckstein talk about Ahsoka Tano, her impact on the Star Wars universe and her story arc as it moves toward REBELS season 2.

More teaser video for REBELS season 2, and more action from the A-Wings!

I am so glad this show has become good. I'm stoked to see where the Vader/Ahsoka story will go. Did she lie to Ezra and Kanan or did she really not know it was Anakin?

What a great Father's Day treat to watch this with my sons this morning.  Very happy that they are getting into some of the things that made TCW so good.  Also loved some of the small nods to the OT and concept art (e.g., Kanan fighting Vader and the original Vader/Skywalker McQuarrie drawing).  I definitely think that Ahsoka knows and lied to the two of them.  Can't wait to see a fight between Vader and Ahsoka!  Also can't wait to see the new Inquisitor...
