In “The Machine in the Ghost,” a special Star Wars Rebels short, the rebels’ Ghost starship is under attack by a wave of TIE fighters.

While they do evade and shoot down several TIEs, it’s up to astromech droid Chopper to finish the job – even if he’s reluctant to do so.

Scheduled to premiere in October 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, Star Wars Rebels will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
