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.

    Seeing some of the OT characters getting animated is like watching family members go in for an operation.

    I don't know why, but when an actor or someone similar just sorta casually owns a YouTube channel, without it trying to plug something is whatever, I really appreciate it.

    I agree with JAT. Obi wan sees Luke (and Leia, but she has no one to train her) as the last hope for the galaxy. He is not about ot leave him.

    He may not even know about any surviving jedi. But he would know of any other hopes if he meets kanan and ezra

    Save Obi Wan's adventures for the Journal of obi wan kenobi issues of the comics

    True. Obi-wan has nothing to do on Rebels, he has a job to do, there is no reason for him to be involved in the rebellion. He has no role to play in Ezra's story.

    I completely 100% agree with JAT too, Obi-Wans place is on Tatooine, and nowhere else, but watching Luke. He's a great character, but I want it to remain true to the spirit of the movies, weather it is in a spin off, comic, or rebels, I think Obi-Wans place is on Tatooine watching Luke, period.

    Quite apart from anything else, the dude has been through a pretty rough patch. Maul comes back again (and again, and again), kills Obi-Wan's One True Love, gets away. He has to train the Chosen One who is let's face a challenging pupil. Chosen One then turns to evil and kills a bunch of kids, and tries to kill Obi. Obi-Wan then dismembers and (he thinks) kills said Chosen One, who is also the best friend he ever had. Oh yes, and everything he lived for was wiped out by some wrinkly scrotum faced Sith who had been operating right under his nose for decades. Frankly the dude can't be blamed if he decides that enough is enough, he's too old for this ****.

    In absolutely no way, shape, or form, should Obi-Wan appear on Rebels. Any contact with the Rebellion, even in the most minute manner, contradicts the ANH. Any contact with Kanan and/or Ezra goes against Luke being the last hope. The only way around that would be for both Kanan and Ezra to die. Helping the Rebellion, contradicts Leia's message to Obi-Wan trying to get him to come help the Rebellion. Any contact with Vader completely contradicts Obi-Wan and Vader's dialogue during their duel on the Death Star. Basically, Obi-Wan needs to be left as a hermit watching over Luke from a distance. End of Story. Rebels has already made a mockery of the PT shows/movies by running virtually every popular character out there. Stop with the cameos. Stop taking characters who have no business being in Rebels and making them central figures. If Rebels was good, they wouldn't need all the cameos to keep drawing interest and excitement for the show.
