    That's true.

    You know what would be cool? If these were not just glamor shots of whichever character with a voice-over saying "Kanan, the Cowboy Jedi," or whatever, but actual little "episodes" which depict an adventure, kind of like Genndy's Clone Wars shorts, only showing scenes which give us an idea of where the characters come from and what they were up to immediately prior to the pilot episode of the series.

    That's what I'm hoping for. I'm not expecting it. But I'm hoping. It really would be quite cool.

    Whatever happened to the supposed Vader shorts?

    Vader doesn't have any shorts as far as I know.

    Well, I guess this confirms it :D. I hope this will be new material, not introductory videos we have already seen.

    According to this schedule, those programs, or whatever it is, will be aired eight times on XD (an will last c. 5 minutes) and twice on Channel, but will last c. 25 minutes. I wonder, maybe they'll show not only crew of the "Ghost", but also someone else? I'd like to finally know Inquisitor's name.

    Ok, with the morning I've been having I needed a good laugh. This did it.

    Did they stick a clip of Rebels at the end of the "No Mo EU" video?

    No, that's one of the SWTOR trailers.

    Ah, okay, I thought maybe they were ending it with a tease or a look forward of what's to come. :p

    Hera certainly looks appealing in that cover.

    It could be a fun book. It looks way better than that Ezra/Boosk one.

    Is there a timeframe for Rebels' release yet? And has it been revealed, will it be done in short arcs/one offs like The Clone Wars, or more like Young Justice/Spectacular Spider-Man and have ongoing storylines that continue through the episodes?

    This build up is all rather exciting/interesting. Do you think Rebels might even have some links/characters/references to the new ST (despite the timegap)?

    Simon Kinberg, one of Rebels' showrunners, is listed as a "creative consultant" to Episode VII.

    Rebels is now part of the "One Universe" so it's probable that it will not contradict the ST and vice-versa. Whether or not there will be things introduced in Rebels that show up three IU decades later depends entirely on what ground Rebels will cover.

    I can't wait for rebels. So is it confirmed for the first episode on Disney May the 4th?

    Yep, they are really putting a lot of effort into promoting the show. As far as I recall, not even TCW got this much attention prior to it's movie release.

    That's a good thing. I hope this show is successful.

    Yeah, all The Clone Wars got was a theatrical film and five adult tie in novels.

    John Jackson Miller did alright by me with Kenobi (hey @anakinfansince1983, 'ya read that one yet?). I really enjoyed what he did with my beloved Obi-Wan, and I find myself now looking forward to seeing what he does here (in fact, I'm looking very much towards each of these first four books to be released under the new "single canon").

    The description for A New Dawn mentions that the book will fill us in on how Kanan and Hera met, so a big win just for that, alone.

    p.s. - I'm really digging the near-live action look of both Kanan and Hera here. I think Kanan in particular looks much better rendered like this than he does in his sort of pedestrian Rebels character model (weird how just giving the same outfit/look a live action appearance can really benefit it like that, but I really think it does.)

    Incidentally, this only serves to further strengthen my conviction that the Rebels action figures should be both super-articulated, and realistic (the ones we're getting -- at least at first -- are neither. C'mon Hasbro!). :)

    I'd really like to see a realistic Sabine.

    I joke about Hasbro being the problem, but as I recall, they admitted that they actually wanted to deliver some SA realistic Rebels figures, but were, for whatever reason, denied by Disney/Lucasfilm.

    Hasbro did hint that they could be on tap for "later." Maybe.
