Really excited for this as well. And yeah, even though I was no fan of the prequels, I wouldn't mind following up on characters like Ashoka or some of the other events of TCW. Although I hope if Vader is the main villain (and it's almost certain he would be), they don't make him TOO much of an anguished, tragic figure who's constantly grieving over Padme. I want to see him be a dark, scary badass
And while I'm sure they'll deviate from the TCW marionette look, I really hope they keep the animation CG as well. I'd love to see the same gorgoeous CG work done on the ships and worlds of the OT as we saw in the PT.
