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

Great to see Obi-Wan will be making at least one appearance on Rebels if that picture chart is accurate. Given the alleged time frame of the new series (perhaps 10 years before ANH, maybe a little less), that would place Obi-Wan at roughly the halfway point in his transformation from Ewan McGregor to Alec Guinness.

The add is for the Saga Legends line, which includes characters from across the whole saga. If you look it appears to include a ROTJ Luke Skywalker (second from the left on the second row down) and a TMP Darth Maul (third from the right on the third row down). I think it's just including the Rebels Logo as a marketing for the show.

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

Definitely not. I've seen the Mission Series Yoda vs. Sidious two-pack of figures on a cardback with the Rebels font and colors, so it appears Hasbro is mixing things up (outside the premium, collector-focused Black Series lines) by letting many movie and Clone Wars characters get packaged with the design template for the new series.

Apparently the current Saga Legends and Mission Series packaging featuring Darth Vader and lava will phase out and be replaced by the Rebels style of cardbacks and boxes, leaving the more expensive and articulated figures in the revamped Black Series design, which will start sporting the shape of a TIE Fighter Pilot's helmet.

Not really a spoiler I guess, the new ream of Hasbro 4" Rebels figures include a very familiar looking Sith lord in black armor. Love it. Absolutely going to eat this show with a garden trowel. Some of the other figures here (names are hard to read) might be spoiler-y.

I wouldn't take Vader's presence on that chart as any indication that he'll appear in the series since it seems to include a mishmash of characters from across the two trilogies. Including ones that are dead by the time of 'Rebels' or still living on a Tatooine moisture farm/hermitage or in a Dagobah hovel.
One says "REBELS OBI-WAN KENOBI".

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

Looks like it might be a pretty good series, even with the Disney style of animation that'll take some getting used to.

Hopefully like Clone Wars the animation will get better and better over time.

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

I hope so too. It doesn't look bad, just....different. Disney-ish. After six years of The Clone Wars you get used to a certain look to the animated Star Wars universe.

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

That would be animation budget or the lack of it compared to TCW.

No, I think it's just a difference in design style. Most animated shows these days choose to look different from one another, to design their characters and worlds in distinctive ways. Ideally, you can look at a given character and instantly know what show it's from because of its characteristic design sensibility.

Yeah, I wasn't much interested in the Clone Wars CG show, but did always respect their intentionally blocky, Thunderbirds-esque character designs, and am not yet sold on these rounder specimens. 'Course, I love the ReBoot characters designs, and they had rounded features, but for some reason - maybe the fact that they shied away from using any skin tones that real humans have - they looked better than what I'm seeing here so far.

No I think there is a noticeable lessening of quality. The telling part isn't the characters, but the ships. Compare the level of detail of the Star Destroyer in that trailer to the Republic & Separatist cruisers in TCW. It's like night and day.

Yeah the animation is a bit simpler, but I'm still not seeing what the big deal is about it. The CG in the recent Beware the Batman and Green Lantern was even simpler than this, and that didn't stop them from both being really good shows.

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

Incidentally, I think I figured out where they got the shorter, squatter TIE Fighters for this series:




Which makes me think the X-Wing may look somewhat like this as well, if we ever see it.

Which video? Was it a speculation or even parody made by a fan or something along those lines?
