I think it's time to stay far away from the Prequels/Clone Wars era for like 10 years lol

The whole point, I think, is to pull people away from that era. I think that's the intent of the show - to move away from the Prequels, including the movies and The Clone Wars, and cautiously put them back into the era of the original movies and beyond (Episode 7)

It's almost a gateway for the OT to come back into the spotlight, without being disrespectful.

I'll admit, and I won't judge on you for liking the Prequels, that I'm kinda happy that we're going back to the originals. I just think they're stronger films and I feel like the Prequels systematically divided not just Star Wars fans, but geeks in general. It doesn't matter if you liked (or I disliked) the Prequels. It is what it is.

Like what Drew McWeeney (of Hitfix) said, it's annoying when you have geek blogs 'roll their eyes' at anything Star Wars these days; it annoys me too. And hopefully Disney can bridge that gap and make the franchise united again with not just SW fans but every picky geek out there.

I feel like, if AND ONLY IF the new films are good, then the Prequels will be looked upon as the Roger Moore* era of Star Wars.

I just hope the new films will play it like Casino Royale and Skyfall; paying respect to what has came before..and keeping it fresh and classy at the same time.

*And when I say Roger Moore, it's not disrespect for Moore. I enjoyed his Bond films for their schlock value and what they offered to the Bond franchise in retrospect. But when you break it down, Moore probably did 2 movies that are worth while out of the 6 movies he's done. That's how I feel what the Prequels will be looked upon in a few decades: Moments of greatness that's being constantly drowned out by its aggressive mediocrity.

I assumed this was gonna be done by starting the show closer to the end of ROTS, and eventually progress to the OT era with subsequent seasons.

While I'm disappointed Clone Wars was canned, I'm pretty happy Rebels is going to be taking place closer to A New Hope than Return of The Sith. Seeing the rebellion in full swing (those dirty rebels!) is going to be great.

Obviously if the new movies take after ROTJ they have to be closer to the OT than the PT lol. I dont see this as them moving away from the PT because they think they suck or something, like some fans have suggested. It's the natural thing to do if you're looking into the future, and with the Skywalker part of the story done, the events of the previous 6 movies are a thing of the past, maybe slightly referenced only, depending on their relevance with the new conflict, whichever it will be. I think the more we move forward, the less we'll see the OT characters involved. As weird as it is to think it, there's SW beyond Luke, Han and Leia, and i think what we'll see is a passing of the torch. They'll just do it slowly cause they know us geeks are overly dramatic and very opinionated lol.

I'm just excited to what's coming next. I have high hopes for the new show. I want to see the Rebellion growing. I just hope se wee some of the rebel pilots in this, and how they ended up in the Rebellion. Wedge, i'm thinking of you!

I just think they're stronger films and I feel like the Prequels systematically divided not just Star Wars fans, but geeks in general. It doesn't matter if you liked (or I disliked) the Prequels.

I agree very much.

The thing is there is one thing 99.9% of Star Wars fans agree on. They love the OT. The problem is there is a fraction where half like the PT, and the other half does not. I see what Disney is doing, and they've been clearly doing it from the get go. They want to unite the fans, and bring back the ones that have fled, because it means more money. Simple. I mean they had completed Episode II and most of III of the 3D conversions when they bought it. It was free money to release those theatrically. But they did not. For a simple reason. They want to change the image of Star Wars. Lucas did it for the PT, and they are doing it again, but this time they are pointing more towards the thing all Star Wars fans have a unified love for. They looked at the long term and said let's get rid of the PT theatrical releases of the 3D conversions. (though they may do them on blu in the future). But right now they want everyone focusing on the OT because that is something that does have a unified love more so, in and outside of the fan community.

It is why Kathy continues to bring up practical effects and limiting CGI, and focusing on story. Those were the main complaints from people about the PT. She keep reassuring them that they are trying to do it more like they used to do it. Then the canceling of TCW (though a superb show) just shows they are trying to go away from the aesthetic and feel and reminders for those that did not care for the PT and get to something positive to get everyone in love with the franchise again.

The fan base/GA is fractured in many parts about it, so the smart marketing thing to do is focus on something everyone else loves to bring them back in the fold for their new venture where they clearly learned lessons from the past. Some even good. But ya it's clear that Kathy keeps pointing towards the OT, even all the music they are using on these official videos come just from he OT. It's the subtle things they are doing but it's quite clear what they are wanting to do. So Rebels I knew would be somewhere more close to the look/feel of the OT regardless. I mean they could have jumped right into something just a little big before the ST (which I thought they would) that would have a new look as well. But they are focusing all their marketing on the OT. It's just the smart thing to do to try and unite the fans. I mean yes Larry Kasdan and JJ have taken "diplomatic" shots at the PT, and clearly don't have a lot of love for it. So I think they know what they are doing. And it's not a bad thing. They are not burning copies of the PT, they are keeping it there forever. But they are taking the focus off of it completely.

Now I'm just waiting to see Vader in Rebels hunt down some Jedi like I've imagined in my mind since I was 5! Bring that on!!!

So when The Clone Wars ended with Season 5, did it actually feel anticlimactic, like you can tell there were more seasons in the making? Or was there enough closure to keep the fans satisfy??

50-50, I'd say. One major character/storyline was masterfully wrapped, the other is gaping open, but the cliffhanger for that was 3 episodes prior, so it doesn't leave an impression, as it's followed by 3 episodes that wrap up the major character's arc.

I'll be surprised if Filoni and co don't answer some of the lingering questions from Clone Wars (Ahsoka) in the new series.

For me, it's clear that there was more to come. Maybe in terms of Ahsoka it was pretty clear and i was satisfied with her fate, but there's plenty more that i figured would be answered the next season . So yeah, it felt like a punch in the gut to me when they cancelled the show, i need closure lol.

Considering how distant Rebels will be from Clone Wars, I think that would be highly unlikely.

Maybe he could tell continuing Clone Wars stories through other formats (books, comics)?

I don't think the gap in time will be a major issue if they set their minds on resolving some stuff, especially the fates of characters like Ahsoka, Darth Maul, Hondo, etc. It's only going to be a jump of 10-20 years (do we have an exact time frame yet?) so it's easy enough stuff to explore.

I did find it kinda anticlimactic I definitely felt it had at least two seasons left in it. Although the final episode did end on somewhat of a closure point it makes the show seem like Ashoka's beginning and end and not necessarily the story of the Clone Wars itself.

I myself wished it was still going and could exist alongside Rebels and start closing its arcs throughout a Season 6 and possibly 7. I loved the show and I'm very excited for Rebels. But those bonus content episodes better not disappoint.

If you're expecting closure of the series, I think you'll be disappointed. But I'll take what I can get.

It works if you look at the introduction to the series is the Clone Wars movie (I know there are a couple of later episodes that take place before the movie, but for intents and purposes here, let's start with the movie). In the movie, we are introduced to Anakin's new padawan Asoka. The series ends with closure for Asoka, so in a sense, there is some sort of closure to the series. There are big hanging plotlines, most notable is Darth Maul is alive, but hopefully, they can be somehow addressed in Rebels.


As far as starting closer to Episode IV, I get why they would do it, but I wish they would start closer to Episode III. I mean, they are saying there is 20 years worth of stories, why start in like year 15 or so? I also wanted to see Anakin adjust to his new role as Dark Lord of the Sith.

Chances are the timeline will jump around a lot, if Clone Wars is any indication. The only reason I think they'll focus nearer toward Episode 7 than Episode 3 is because of the title 'Rebels'. I get the impression we'll be seeing the rebellion in full swing. Of course I could be way off and we might see the early days of the rebellion, in which case the new show may very well be closer to Episode III.
