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

Teasers are meant to be brief and get people talking, little more. I don't expect it to be an expansive, old school Hollywood trailer but it's nice to know we're getting a tease and peek at the show a year ahead of the debut.

I think there might be some kinda stuff talked about it at NYCC as well. Not sure if there will be any kinda reveal though.

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

Here is the promised teaser trailer...and if this is a sample of the animation we can expect to see from the series, I'm excited for this already!

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

The new Rebels action figure packaging reminds me of the Legacy Collection and Clone Wars packaging from 2008. A big trooper helmet with the figure bubble attached to the front.

I have to admit, it's not too bad. It conveys a "this is an animated series" message without looking too tacky and little-kid-focused, plus it's a classic OT Stormtrooper helmet and that means a lot to a lot of old school Star Wars fans who prefer the original films and adventures set in that timeframe to anything in the Prequel and Clone Wars eras.

Have there been any character renders yet? That's what I'm curious to see.

No, but if the Stormtrooper helmet design on the late 2014 toy packaging is any indicator then the characters will have a fairly realistic CGI look along the lines of what we're used to from The Clone Wars.

To be honest, I hated this. With all the lines through the panels on the underside of the Star Destroyer, it looks like it incorporates a style more appropriate for hand-drawn animation. It looks super-cheap in the context of CGI.

In understatement, I'm not overwhelmed with the Stormtrooper helmets, either.

I'm not sure, but at first glance, it looks like they may have made the eyes larger and/or with a different shape than they are in the live action helmets. Whatever it is, the troopers look somehow more innocent now. That impression is not promising to me.

Nothing like seeing them in action, to get a better idea, though.

Some info from today's Star Wars: Rebels panel at NY Comic-Con today, including our first look at one of the show's villains, an Imperial Inquistor who is "tasked by Darth Vader to hunt down the remaining Jedi Knights." :



Also shown at the panel was this behind the scenes video:

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

Kind of an Asajj Ventress vibe to the new "Inquisitor." Also, it's so great seeing a line of classic Stormtroopers in plain white armor. I dig the Prequel Clones and all their varieties and different designs through the years, but I grew up on the OT and for me the ultimate white-armored soldier hidden beneath a helmet will always be the Imperial Stormtrooper.

The troopers in the Clone Wars series could hit their targets. Will they do so in Rebels or will we see OT style Stormtroopers that can't hit jack shit?

Ah, interesting, definitely close to the roots. Those stormtrooper's squished faces bug me though.

I'm a bit fuzzy on the timeline. How much time passes between Revenge of the Sith and Episode 4?

Who WILL be the lead characters in this show?

The Clone Wars had the obvious choices. We had Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ashoka.

But the problem with Rebels is that they are setting it in such an awkward time period. Luke and Leia are still kids. Han is a teen some where. Obi-Wan and Yoda are hiding out.
