Re: New Star Wars animated show "Rebels" coming fall 2014

And Imperial officers like Motti on the first Death Star called it a "sad and ancient religion," realizing that Darth Vader was once a Jedi himself (even if he never knew which Jedi nor the circumstances of him becoming a cybernetic enforcer for the Empire) and taunting him for it. I imagine in the wake of the Clone Wars and Palpatine proclaiming himself Emperor that a truly massive disinformation campaign was launched to discredit the Jedi Knights as both traitors and overrated.

A kid like Han Solo growing to maturity during the early years of the Empire might never have met nor even seen a real Jedi and perhaps heard little more than rumors, stories and Imperial propaganda.
