    The Ahsoka novel's flashbacks to Mandalore are very vague and generalized. Indeed it seems they were intentionally trying to be as restrained as possible thinking that story would be available in some form someday.

    It’s just that we know that there are some unfinished episodes. Why not finish them instead of leaving them in limbo.

    Because they don't want to. Because they are not additive to the story. Because Lucas didn't want them to. Because Filoni doesn't want to.

    There is no obligation for them to finish them.

    Just sounds like lazy talk.

    Could be. Could be a variety of other reasons.

    No obligation one way or the other.

    You might believe that it's underwhelming, but I don't think it is, so it's not something that we know.

    Fine. The ending is underwhelming.
    I wonder what their plans was for him after Solo. Would he appear in the sequel or given his own movie? The latter would be good.

    Again, no. The ending is brilliant. "Twin Suns" is a great episode of Rebels, and what happens to Maul and how it happens constitutes one of the finest moments in all of Star Wars. This is my opinion; you have yours. But you don't get to say "we know how underwhelming it [Maul’s story eventually/the ending/whatever] becomes" as if everybody happens to agree with your opinion.

    I mean “we” as in the people who agree with me. Not “them”.

    If literally the same scene happened except in live action, everybody would love it. But since it happened in an animated form it's somehow "lesser."

    I don’t mean that. I mean a live action that told the story of how he fell from being a leader of a crime syndicate to a hobo on Korriban.

    That doesn't make his ending any lesser. We don't need the full story for his ending to be incredibly tragic and well done.

    You sure are quick to call people lazy when something in a TV show doesn't go exactly the way you think it should.

    It's the only reason that things don't get done, right? Obviously the producers are just lazy good-for-nothings who don't care about the product. They just don't want to WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I mean all they have to do is push the "finish episodes" button and they'll just pop out of the magical cartoon box. What are they waiting for?! A budget? A production staff?! Time and effort!!? So very lazy...

    Takes them more time to have dinner at that fancy restaurant than to make an episode...unbelievable how lazy they are!

    Nothing too spoilerish here, so no need to hide these episode descriptions. So far I've just seen these first two, that we're getting on Feb 21 and 28.

    Episode 701- “The Bad Batch”
    Captain Rex and the Bad Batch must infiltrate an enemy base on Anaxes.

    Episode 702 – “A Distant Echo”
    Anakin Skywalker, Rex, and the Bad Batch make a shocking discovery on Skako Minor.

    I'm curious if they're going to alter the Bad Batch arc to some degree to somehow slide in the whole "Rex, Wolfe & Gregor removed their chips" plot point from Rebels.
    I mean one assumes that has to happen *before* Order 66, no? Of course that would mean Gregor would need to be re-introduced...so maybe he'll be the one the Techno-Union has instead of Echo? Would explain how he got so loopy in Rebels, though since he doesn't have the same history with Rex & Anakin that Echo did it would make the reveal a little less impactful.

    I mean we already know for a fact that they are for sure altering Ahsoka's walkabout episodes, presumably to more organically integrate with the Mandalore arc, and one assumes to cut out the "deep beneath the temple" episode (though I hope not.) So there's a precedent.

    3 arcs, 'Bad Batch', 'Ahsoka's Walkabout' and the 'Siege of Mandalore'. 4 episodes each.

    They also changed one character into a set of siblings.

    I still wonder why they chose to complete "The Bad Batch" but not "Crystal Crisis on Utapau." I mean, "Crisis" is kind of important to the arc, since it's implicitly a harbinger of the creation of the Death Star (Dooku trying to get hold of a huge Kyber crystal to power an unspecified superweapon), and foreshadows Rogue One in a way as well. I'd think they would've wanted to finish it too, given the option.
