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

This could be a very, very interesting series! At first I was a bit reluctant (I've grown a bit tired of Clone Wars/Dark Times stuff) but this specific period hasn't been covered very much outside of Force Unleashed and a few books and comics. Should be fun.

I have a hard time getting excited about anything to do with SW, so we'll see.

I was that way for a long while, but between this news, the new JJ trilogy, and the new comic, I find myself slowly getting excited about it again.

Greg Weisman was born to writer Emperor Palpatine. This is a perfect combination in my opinion.

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

I have mostly optimistic thoughts about this new series. There are so many opportunities to explore OT characters during the course of the 20-year gap between the birth of the Empire and the events of the original movie and chronicle what some of them experienced during those shadowy years of the Dark Times.

Boba Fett. Obi-Wan as he slowly transitions from Ewan McGregor to Alec Guinness. The earlier exploits of Vader as he learns to live and function from inside his life-support armor. Boy Luke and Girl Leia.

I'm looking forward to it. Disney: don't screw this up.

A 10 year jump would also makes things interesting if they bring back Ahsoka, which I'm sure they'll do.
It'll also allow enough time for boy Luke and girl Leia to be old enough to be getting into trouble (in Luke's case) and becoming educated about and aware of galactic and Imperial politics (in Leia's). Plus, it'll allow Obi-Wan (now "old Ben") to have aged enough during his exile to look and act more like Alec Guinness.

I dunno... I'm not sure Palps is a subtle or intelligent enough character to be up to Weisman's standards of villain writing. Not every bad guy can be a Xanatos.

YES! I just knew that they would do something like this the moment Clone Wars ended!

Now this is something I'm more curious about than The Clone Wars.

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

I have to admit I'm a lot more excited about this series than I ever was about The Clone Wars back when it was first announced and then premiered. I grew to love the Prequel-era show as time went by, but it was a series I had to take the time to watch and slowly get used to.

Yeah even as good as it became, I still had a hard time really caring about the larger Clone War happening in the background, or whatever boring plot was being orchestrated by the separatists or Dooku or Grievous.

Hopefully this time it'll be much easier to get emotionally involved in the larger story taking place, with a much clearer struggle against the Empire and characters who are a lot more fun to watch.

^Yeah, and we wouldn't have the complication of being asked to root for a hero that we knew would eventually become a child-murdering archvillain.
