    My initial thought is that I love the idea. I think delving into the origins of the rebellion with the backdrop of the Empire tightening its grip on the galaxy is fantastic ground for a new series. I'm very excited by this. :D

    I'll try and watch, If it's not on Disney chanel and is readily available on Netflix, I'll be stoked.
    If it really is McQuarrie's drawings brought to life in CG, and not the super-rescue hero-styleized animation, then I'm super-DUPER stoked.

    First look at CE, so I'll wait till then to get super invested.

    I am as well!! Personally I found this time period more exciting than the Clone Wars or even the time frame after ROTJ.

    Yes I'm right with you on that one. After more than ten years of Clone Wars coverage I'm definitely ready for something new.

    Looks good. I would've liked something post-RotJ, but this will do.

    I do kind of wish they would have made this a spin-off movie though...

    This way they can get much more in depth though. However, my wish would have been the Live Action Series but I'll live with this. :p

    I bet Vader and Palpatine feature prominently.

    I'd agree with this. Wonder if James Earl Jones will voice...

    Also bet rogue squadron will drive the action.

    The fact that Kinberg is writing an hour long pilot and is heavily involved with the show suggests to me that this will relate to spin off material somehow.

    I'm not sure that's true - if this is the first place Disney feels they need to visit, in a time where they specifically want to focus on Episode VII, I think there's definitely cause for speculation as to why this.

    Beyond. Episode III and IV is BEFORE VII.

    Wow, theres a stretch...hahaah


    I dont think its the first place they need to visit - VII was announced first - its just going to take longer to come out. And we all knew there was a new cartoon in works, and I'm pretty sure everyone thought it would be between 3-4.

    Although this isn't exactly the same as the gritty underworld stories we heard about for the LAS, this has got to be what happened with that Dark Times era TV show idea. It could be cool, but I hope it doesn't overdo the "continuing adventures of the TCW gang" too much... especially, of course, Ahsoka. Also, I can virtually guarantee Tatooine will be in this. A lot.

    Makes you wonder too...Possible adolecent Luke Skywalker? Mark Hamill on the voice??? Now I am really excited

    Adolecent Leia could be a possability as well, maybe we will see Alderaan !

    Id in fact venture to guess that we will HAVE to see Alderaan, and Senator Organa

    But if Luke isn't part of the Rebellion at this point, would they bother featuring him? That's what I would want to know.

    Unless they put him in there just for the LOLs of him complaining about sand. :p

    I think there's a much greater chance of seeing Leia than Luke. Still, we'll probably be seeing both.
