Judging by the Ghost people who are into starships will love this. I hope we will see some ships from Galaxies and the Gladiator class.

True, but I mostly have ignored a lot of the prequel stuff. I've tried to get into it, but I just can't. Guess because I'm a dyed in the wool OT fan since..well..since I was a kid in the '70s.
Love your av. Loved that game.

Will they let it have an ending?
Well they won't have to worry about being cancelled by an outside influence, so it really depends how carefully they plan it. I mean since this is between III+IV, after 2015 a series between VI+VII might be on the cards.

So I wouldn't be surprised if they just aimed for 100 episodes, 4 seasons.

There will be an ending for Rebels, it'll be called "A New Hope". Just like "Revenge of the Sith" was The Clone Wars' ending.

Greg Weisman was born to writer Emperor Palpatine. This is a perfect combination in my opinion.
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.
I know its been a while but...

I don't know Weisman's Doc Ock was a pretty cartoony super villain and he sure as hell didn't seem subtle.
But he wasn't the show's mastermind, just a subordinate. He'd compare to someone like Sevarius or Wolf. The masterminds in Spectacular Spider-Man were Osborn and Tombstone, though I believe it was Tombstone (who was reimagined as basically the show's surrogate Kingpin) who was the Xanatos-like schemer.

Does Osborn really count since he went all psycho Green Goblin in the end and hooked up a whole bunch of pumpkin bomb launchers and stuff in the end?

^I'm not sure. I honestly don't remember the show's portrayal of Osborn well enough to say.

Heh, I'm the same way and I wasn't even born until 1987. I was at the upper edge of the youngest and most toy-oriented demos back when Episode I came out in '99 and while I enjoy the prequel films reasonably well enough and respect that The Clone Wars blossomed into a good show I've just never been able to care nearly as much as I do for the OT era. There's something timeless and irresistible about the against-all-odds swashbuckling space opera of that style.

That's why I beamed a bit upon seeing those TIE Fighters. I can't wait for this show.

Also, seconding the shout-out to your avatar. I spent more time with X-Wing, TIE Fighter and XvT as a kid than I did with almost anything. Only JRPGs, Star Trek and soccer occupied more of my time, and even then just barely.

And by the same token, we should hesitate to act as if anyone defending the prequels on any level must be some misguided millennial or Hannah Montana fan or something. I was right there at the drop in 1977 myself, watching the film, playing with the toys, reading the comics.

A teaser will air on Disney XD Monday night, during the premiere of Mighty Med at 8:30 PM EST. It will be released online shortly thereafter.

I'm sweet on that teaser and this thread being alive. I want to discuss the fuck out of this new series.

Edit: Oh, snap!

Hmmm... anyone walk to talk about Yavin IV?

Thanks for that heads up, Chris. I hadn't heard about this teaser at all and nobody else had mentioned it just yet.

You don't really get much out of a 15 second teaser. At least half of it is likely just to be titles and ominous music, or Vader's breathing or some such.

If you got much out of it, they wouldn't call it a teaser...
