Zeb's... considerably larger than Puggles, though.
Man I could forgive Jar Jar if he actually was a secret Palpatine Agent.
He's always been little more than a glorified P.A.
Well, according to Alien Encounters, Lasats can be between 1.2 and 1.9 meters in average.
I know, I have the book right before me.
Ah! We have a real connoisseur. That's one of my favorite WEG guides!
So far, the only things I don't like are "BLUE HAIR!!!1" and the X-TREME TO THE MAX graffiti stuff.
But I can probably be won over by both, eventually.
Now that you mention it, wasn't the original pitch for the Clone Wars show a master and padawan going undercover in the galactic underworld, influencing the clone wars behind the scene?
I think I'd have preferred something like that. Though, really, I wish the pitch had been "Obi-Wan and a 14 y/o Padawan Anakin go on adventures between TPM and AotC".
Are you sure you would want a 14 year old Anakin? Have you thought this through?
Well he'd have just been a male Ahsoka, only his Stu-ness would actually make sense. So, yes, I have.
Same here. I wish Rebels and TCW were switched around in this regard, with TCW being about non-movie characters during the Clone Wars and Rebels being about movie characters during the Dark Times.
Now that I think about it, that might be a great show.
I have to assume 14 year old Anakin would be worse than the 19 year old one.
Not touching the Sue comment lest I derail this thread again.
But at least you only have one Anakin instead of two.
Why? The characterisation of this hypothetical 14 y/o Anakin would likely still be just as much of a reaction to everyone's negative appraisal of the AotC/RotS Anakin as was TCW Anakin.
And I'm using Stu-ness just in a "his-amazing-so-much-better-than-everyone-else-and-uber-over-the-top-skilled-for-his-age"ness sense. Don't read any more into it than that.
Sue/Stu is a radioactive word. It has baggage that comes with its use. You woke the dragon!
Anyway, was Ahsoka annoying in the same way Ep2 Ani was? If so, I can't see hypothetical Ani being different as a reaction to Ep2 Ani.
In fact, I would expect trollucas to play it up.
Ahsoka was annoying in a different way than AOTC Anakin was. And AOTC Anakin was at least told to learn his place.
I would collect every action figure of the character who said that to Ahsoka, especially in seasons 3-5.
And we did get 14-year-old Anakin in Outbound Flight, just not much of him.
But then we wouldn't have gotten Matt Lanter as Anakin. And what movie characters would we be following in Rebels? Yoda hiding out on Dagobah? Obi-Wan hiding out on Tatooine? Luke complaining about power converters to his aunt and uncle and torturing womp rats?
The only person doing anything interesting would be Darth Vader and maybe Leia. But unlike a lot of people, I don't think Vader being a stoic badass and mowing down Jedi left and right could carry an entire series, and Leia would either be a snotty teenager talking back to her aunts on Alderaan or just starting out as a Senator and clandestine rebel and wouldn't ever be directly participating in the action due to the need to maintain her cover.
edit: I forgot Han Solo, I guess. But either the show would rehash all his book adventures or, more likely, completely ignore them. I'm not sure which would be preferable to the majority of fans.
-Palpatine. I would have loved seeing him as Emperor.
-The Peculiar Hat Crew.
-Mon Mothma and Bail Organa
I wouldn't be surprised if we do, though? But that also couldn't really carry an entire series. Unless it was a comedy.
edit: Okay, Mon Mothma and Bail Organa could be interesting. But would they be main characters? They're also Senators and clandestine rebels at this point. They wouldn't be running around sporting blasters and facing off against Imperials. They'd be in a supporting role. And it also seems not entirely out of the question that they'll show up in that capacity in Rebels at some point.
I'll have to disagree there.
House of Barves?
Well, what would it be? A long-form political drama like House of Cards, but animated and for kids? Or would Palpatine get periodic assignments from the dark side, Charlie's Angels style, and set out across the galaxy to personally strangle Rebels and electrocute rogue Jedi?
e: I can just imagine, five plus seasons of a cackling maniac jetting around space brutally killing an endless succession of heroes and good guys. An excellent premise for a kid's show.
Or I guess we could have our protagonist lose all the time.
Dealing with the Imperial Senate, hiding the fact that he's Sidious, being Vader's master, making laws and decisions for the galaxy, etc.
