Discussion in 'Star Wars Rebels' started by Solidus, May 20, 2013.
Since it has been officially announced today I figure it would be appropriate to open this thread.
I'm really excited about it, so let the speculation begin! Do you think we'll see some of the OT characters in their younger years, and if so who? I'd LOVE to see a young Wedge t:. I get the feeling we might see Mon Mothma and Bail also.
It would be cool to see a younger Han.
This sounds perfect to bring in the one and only Galen Marek AKA StarKiller
This sounds like a really good idea, looking forward to it.
Great idea for an animated series. I'm definitely very much looking forward to this. The era itself has always been very interesting to me; and now we will get a semi-canon take on it.
I hope they can get James Earl Jones for some Vader moments, that would be killer!
>In-between Episodes III and IV
This may actually be good.
This is what I thought would happen. Great news.
I wonder if they'll use the same animation style they used on Clone Wars or go in a different direction?
Exciting stuff! I wonder if Ahsoka will show up. Starkiller would be neat too.
Duke, I hope it's the same/a similar style. Just so the two shows tie together nicely.
That's what I'm hoping for too, so there can be some sort of continuity.
This is Great News!
I hope the same. I loved how CW looked.
Ahsoka will definitely be in this.
Great potential. I am hoping this fulfills that potential. Oh, and please, no Ahsoka. Unless she is brutally murdered by Vader.
With Filoni at the helm, and a fair chunk of the Clone Wars team returning along with him (not to mention the character's popularity) it's a safe bet Ahsoka will be back. Personally I'm excited to find out where she went after Clone Wars, and what she's been up to in the years between.
I hope/think we'll be seeing other fan favorites too, like Cad Bane. Plo Koon is practically guaranteed because if I recall correctly, Koon is Filoni's favorite character.
According to this nifty wee video the Art Director from Clone Wars, Killian Plunkett, is also going to be the Art Director for Rebels. If the art style isn't exactly the same, it'll probably be very similar.
Plo Koon died in Episode III. I don't think will see him alive and I doubt he can Force Ghost. Flashbacks at best.
I am looking forward to the animation. Clone Wars Season 4 and 5 looked so good.
I would've loved it to be post-ROTJ, but I've got no complaints about this.
if I remember correctly there are not many Jedi left there were three on Starkiller's hit list those names didn't include Ben Kenobi or Yoda.I think everyone needs closure to Ahsoka and Darth Maul's stories.
Yup I'm game!!! Oh and Greg Weisman we have another hit I think.
Ya in the video they keep saying the visual art is going to be very different. So the video I posted pretty much shows in a visual sense it will be a different world, closer to the OT. I'm not talking animation though I'm talking art style. They keep saying they are going to go off of Ralph's stuff of the OT.
I'm loving this concept far better than that Reclamation crap. I always thought something set between Episodes III-IV would be awesome where it's just straight up Rebels vs the Evil Empire. There's also not much lore set in that era, so you can play with it quite nicely. It would be quite interesting to see how the galaxy's actually holding up after Palpatine really took over.
Characters I would love to see appear
STARKILLER!!! as well as other TFU characters like Juno, Rahm, PROXY
Ahsoka Tano-->Just to see if my theory of her becoming an agent of the Rebel Alliance is true
Wedge Antilles and Red Squadron PLEASE!
Han and Chewbacca-->Just as a cameo
Boba Fett(I think that's a given)
Any other surviving Jedi
Asajj Ventress(who I believe is still alive?)
A really young Mara Jade
I was hoping for it to be set between ANH and ESB but this sounds great as well and has a lot of scope to work with. I think Bail will be a big part of the show and I wonder if we'll see a young Luke and Leia. I guess the big question is will Vader be a regular character!?
I definitely think we'll see Boba Fett, Cad Bane, Hondo, Dengar, Embo etc...if the hunt for the remaining Jedi is going to be part of the show, and of course Darth Maul remains which I think means we'll get a Vader vs Maul showdown.
Filoni and a good portion of his crew?
Era between Episodes III & IV?
You know I'm in! I've been saying I'd like to see Clone Wars extend past Order 66. Though it sound a little further down the road than that, this is great! Maybe we'll see Asoka. Maybe we can see Obi-Wan & Yoda in hiding (bring back James Arnold Taylor!)! Vader hunting down Jedi! Can you imagine Matt Launter for Anakin in the mediation chamber when he removes his helmet?! Can you imagine if it still the same style??!! Maybe get a resolution to Maul?
My one request, against some of these posters: NO Starkiller or Force Unleashed CRAP, please!
This sounds great! Two guys of some of the best cartoons in recent years teaming together for Star Wars! Disney ain't playing around.
Agreed x1000000. I'm one of the guys who hates TFU with passion. In fact, I'd go ever further and I hope they take down TFU's continuity like a wrecking ball and completely ignore it.
