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

Well, given it's Disney XD we're talking about I honestly wasn't expecting the overall look to be as ideal and gritty as I hoped. They'll tweak something or other to make it more cutesy and kid-friendly. Still, they're Imperial Stormtroopers based on the original costumes and that's something.

Roughly 20 years. Many reference sources say 19, but I just round it up to an even twenty like the Star Wars Visual Dictonary does when it says how long Obi-Wan (Ben) has been in exile in the desert when he events of ANH take place.

We've also confirmed that the Inquisitor is a Pau'an, a species native to the planet Utapau.

Here's the Pau'an page on Wookipedia.

Whatever Luke's age is supposed to be in ANH. The ANH novelization said he was 20, but I think the "official" story is still 19 years.

The crew of a ship called the Ghost (I think). That's all they've said so far.

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

Yeah, one's pretty much the same as the other. Mark Hamill was 24 when the original movie was filmed and Carrie Fisher was all of 18, and farmboy Luke was supposed to be young enough that he pined for running off and joining his childhood friends at the Imperial Academy while Leia was the youngest member of the Imperial Senate.

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."
And here and all I thought that was, y'know, Vader's job.

I'm surprised by the bit in that article about the producers not knowing how one got into a TIE fighter and "deciding" that the entry hatch was on top. I remember assembling the TIE fighter model kit as a kid, and there was definitely an access hatch on top. So we already knew that back in the late '70s -- it's been part of the TIE fighter design all along. So why did these producers need a lengthy debate to figure that out?

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

Well, he did need help from great numbers of Imperial probe droids to locate the Rebels and his son at the beginning of Empire. As powerful with the Dark Side and trusted by the Emperor as Vader is he's not invincible and all-knowing. I imagine having some henchmen and technology at his disposal is a big help when tracking down targets across an area as huge as a galaxy.

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

This has potential. But I see problems:

1. If it's anything like Star Wars The Clone Wars, it'll be a gigantic failure.

2. It's showing on a kid's channel, meaning no blood, no excessive fighting, and no deep-thinking.

3. It's animated. (I have nothing against that, it's just that animation doesn't fit the Star Wars "feel".)

Lose Disney Channel, break away from animation, and we'll have a real excellent show.

*Also release a statement that makes all the happenings of The Clone Wars not canon. That would make me happy indeed....

the fact that it will be on Disney doesn't mean the show will be bad or lifeless. i was quite surprised by some of the elements in Tron Uprising and it aired on Disney XD.

Ah, so this will be "Firefly" in the Star Wars universe?

Star Wars The Clone Wars was a big sucesss that lasted over 100 episodes. The only reason it ended was because Disney wanted to start their own show on their own network.

2. It's showing on a kid's channel, meaning no blood, no excessive fighting, and no deep-thinking.
Star Wars has never been about bloody violence. It has worked out well in The Clone Wars attracting the kid and adult audiences.

3. It's animated. (I have nothing against that, it's just that animation doesn't fit the Star Wars "feel".)
Star Wars and animation go perfectly well together. It keeps cost down and it can be much more large scale than all the Prequel Trilogy movies in terms of battles. Many fans consider TCW to be superior than all the PT movies.

At this point, I see Disney having no interest in a live action show now that they are doing future movies.

Lose Disney Channel, break away from animation, and we'll have a real excellent show.

TCW is already very good, though I'm interested to see how they do the sequel.
