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

Yeah, very interesting. Thanks for that! Kind of answers my questions in the other thread about how dark this series might be. Based on the interview, it looks like it's going to be more light-hearted and adventure driven than TCW, more like the OT (both in terms of style and content), but will still leave room for darker moments when the story calls for it. That seems reasonable to me.

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

And there should be a difference in tone. The Dark Times (Imperial Era) wasn't a period of open galactic warfare, so each episode doesn't have to be about some grand armed struggle and bloodbath with white-armored soldiers falling left and right. The Dark Times were about an underground resistance forming and launching its first strikes against the Emperor's tyranny, not widespread interstellar carnage. Stories should be lighter for the most part, although I'm sure any scripts expanding upon the Jedi Purge will have their justifiably dark moments since we're dealing with the summary executions of the Empire's enemies at the hands of dark forces.

The time frame alone should mean that Rebels won't nor should it be another TCW.

Yeah, that interview has made me really confident in the show. I just wish I wasn't going to have to wait for the damn thing to come out on DVD.

For me, cartoons and waiting for DVDs generally go hand-in-hand.

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

At least with the Cartoon Network I could catch many episodes of The Clone Wars when they originally aired, and even when the remarkably sophisticated and dark series was dispatched to the nether region of Saturday mornings it was accessible. With Disney XD I don't have a subscription and I'm not planning on getting one just to watch one half-hour show, so I'll be seeing most episodes of the new series online on one website or another.

My "Kids On Demand" cable channel includes some programming from channels I don't actually subscribe to. I'm not sure if DXD would be one of them, but you could check it out.

I'll look into that. Thanks for the suggestion. I do believe I have a "Kids On Demand" channel.

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

I would be very surprised if we got Mara and Ben and Jacen and Jaina in the movies. I fully expect them to go with different names and characters. After all only a few thousand people have read the novels compared to the millions and millions of people who have seen the movies and have no idea the books even exist.

Oh, dear... they're using "ST" to stand for "Sequel Trilogy?" That's going to be very confusing, given that it already stands for Star Trek.

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

ST could be confusing on boards like this, though I'm sure most would eventually adjust to seeing it and understanding the context of the post and discussion. "SqT" could be used, though it's not two letters like the abbreviations for the two previous trilogies.

PT
OT
SqT

It's not perfect, but I'd use it.

DT - Disney Trilogy

It will be interesting to see what convention ends up dominant with time.

How many people would have noticed them renaming Pepper Potts, or really gave a fig who Arnim Zola was, or could tell Maria Hill from Natasha Romanov? There's no special reason to think they will use Mara etc., but then... no reason to think they won't if it fits the story they're trying to tell. For the people who've never read a Star Wars book, it'll be exactly the same - "Oh look, Luke's got a wife named ___ and a kid named ___; Han and Leia got married and have twins."
