1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    I think Palpatine, Vader and Tarkin for the Empire, Mon Mothma and Bail for the Rebels is settled. Yoda and Obi Wan might show up but they would not pick too big roles. Other than that, I want to see Thrawn, Daala and Shaak Tii.

    I'd like to see Red Leader (Garven Dreis), Wedge & Porkins as well as some of the imperial officers and other ranked guys who appeared on the imperial side in the OT, like Piett and Ozzel for instance (oh, and Panaka from TPM; in the EU he apparently became a Moff so it would be interesting if they would carry that over into this series).

    There's a fair chance at least some of them will appear; the possibilities are many.

    Somebody who obviously turns out to be a big part of the Rebel military is Captain Antilles, and of course, a couple lil' droids he happens to own... I think it'll be pretty fun (and maybe a little heartbreaking) to see Threepio after his memory wipe. I also have a feeling Wedge's story will be retconned so that he's the son of Captain Antilles, but I dunno... people say TCW was constantly trampling the EU because of Filoni's decisions, but I have a feeling George was responsible for that. We may see less retcons with Filoni in charge.

    Unfortunately, for me, Thrawn and Daala are out. Daala's not big enough to expect to see, and people would only complain about the portrayal of Thrawn, no matter how they did it. I mean, if he were in there, I think it'd be a hoot... but I'd have to quarantine these boards for a month surrounding each of his appearances.

    I'd like to see the more idealistic parts of the Confederacy (not the greedy/manipulative ones) become rebel cells. The setting is also ripe for stories about the Bothan SpyNet.

    Definitely want to see:

    Bail Organa and Mon Mothma forming the Rebellion, maybe with Ackbar and Riekan.

    Vader, Palpatine, Tarkin, Piett. Maybe Ozzel being stupid.

    Obi-Wan, Owen and Beru, young Luke. Biggs and Wedge.

    Yoda communicating with Obi-Wan, both of them communicating with the early Rebellion.

    Ventress just being herself.

    Bo-Katan taking Mandalore back.

    Cad Bane hired by the Empire.

    And Wedge Antilles.

    Garm Bel Iblis

    Kyle Katarn.

    Admiral Zaarin, complete with his defection.

    Dash Rendar.

    Han Solo (defecting from the Empire)

    Mara Jade would only be a kid early in the Dark Times, but depending on how long a time period the show covers, who knows?

    Leia Organa.

    Raith Sienar and Kuat of Kuat.

    It really depends on when appearances from Luke, Leia, Han, Lando Wedge, etc make sense if it takes place close to ANH but if its take place on the other end of the timeline then no need to see them.

    Empire: Vader, Palpatine, Tarkin, Boba Fett (depending on when), Maul

    Rebels: Bail, Mon

    Clone Wars: Cad, Hondo, Bo Katan, Saw, Rex, Ashoka

    These are all great choices, but...
    Absolutely! Would love to see K'Kruhk and his freakin' sweet hat make an appearance. Tremble before the power of the hat!

    Rex, Fives, Lux Bonteri, Ventress and maybe even an escaped Barriss I want to see in the new show. I suspect the obvious ones like Vader and Tarkin will be center stage. It would probably be fun to start watching VA's official sites and social media for hints via casting. It'll be just as fun to see what new VAs show up for recording.

    I haven't seen a lot of discussion about this topic yet, but has the fate of the Underworld tv series been revealed yet? I'm just going to assume that that thing got completely scrapped in favor of this new animated show which is set in the same time period. Having said that, the main characters of Rebels will most likely be...rebels. Underworld was supposed to revolve around a bunch of seedy characters like bounty hunters and gangsters. I'm sure we'll see these in Rebels, but they probably won't be the focus.

    The rebels are considered highly criminal in their society, so they have no choice but to associate often with shady characters. (For example Lando and Han aren't exactly legitimate businessmen)

    Another point I'd like to bring up about Underworld is that it was being produced by Rick McCallum, and he seemed to be the driving force behind it. Since that guy is now looooong gone from Lucasfilm, I assume that's another nail in the coffin for that potential series.

    I want to see of course bounty hunters : Cad Bane, C-21 Highsinger, Boba Fett, Embo, Ventress, Aura Sing, Bossk, Dengar, Sugi and more from TCW.
    I want to see Ahsoka again and why not Lux Bonteri too.
    Maul too, it would be the best way to end his story.
    Of course, I'm expecting Vader, Bail Organa, Sidious, Mon Mothma, Tarkin and other rebels and people from the Empire.

    Anybody from the Droids animated series. It's the same time period, so a cameo from some of those characters or planets could work well.

    I think the big advantage of Disney taking over, is that they will insist that the main characters are included. IMO you can't have a series in this time period without Vader, Tarkin, Obi Wan and Bail (which is essentially what the Live Action Series Was.

    My ideal would be
    Vader (use sparingly please)
    Kenobi (Season Finale)
    Boba Fett
    Some new Jedi in exile
    Any character who didn't have their story finished in TCW (Maul, Ventress)
