Should I make the Continuity Thread already?
I'll echo the cautiously optimistic posts. That's really all I can say at this stage.
If you do, you totally need to include Cad Bane's name in the title somehow.
Nervous. Very, very, very nervous. If they do something stupid and continuity-breaking like making the Empire evil, I'm going to be PISSED.
on the other hand though they did pick an era which might be even less suited for a weekly children's cartoon than the clone wars. which is pretty impressive really if you think about it.
Please don't give Filoni any ideas... He will probably contradict canon with Cad Bane somehow.
And just like that, I'm hoping they go really, really overboard on the whole Space Nazi angle
Although I have to admit that the whole pre-Imperial parade group atmosphere of the prison thingie near the end of TCW was pretty sweet -- if they can get the Imperial aesthetic right, it might be fun.
And hey, they featured Monument Plaza in TCW..... maybe we'll see the Imperial Palace on screen at last!
tbh it would be pretty sweet if they remember that yularen is ISB and they have him like goose-stepping around slapping dissidents or something
"What if this was CG?"
I like TCW by and large but I'm hoping for a higher standard of storytelling. Shame that we seem to have lost Underworld's ambition to get something that looks relatively safe though.
I'm all for it. I'm slightly disappointed that it doesn't take place after ROTJ, as rumored. I feel it would have been nice to have the animated show that featured Luke, Han, and Leia post Endor. Especially since with the new movies coming out it would have been a good way to introduce them to the younger audience. Not to mention a chance for Thrawn to show up.
Still as is, it sound like a good idea and I'm looking forward to where it'll go. To tell the truth I was sold when I saw that the guy who did Spectacular Spider-Man and Gargoyles was involved.
Thrawn can still show up. This will be the formative years of the Empire, after all. Could be cool to see a few of the future Grand Admirals. Of course, they'd most likely create new Grand Admirals...
MOFFERENCE the SERIES here we come! the epic adventures of the Moffship and its crew...
this is running paralell to droids so I demand crossover!!!
With a name like "Rebels," I'm sure everyone and their mothers would defeat the Empire in battles.
VINE: Filoni does some research
@Esg if you don't mind my saying so the sheer variety of your reaction gifs library is kind of awe-inspiring
Hmm, that gave me an idea... Ahsoka Tano, founder of Rogue Squadron?
Don't make me vomit.
The gutsy move would be to kill Ahsoka off in the first episode.
Well, at the very least it is something to talk about - and while I do have many, many complaints about TCW, I enjoyed it overall. Particularly in its willingness to add new planets, machines, and races to the Galaxy, which makes me more hopeful about this series than most set in a very crowded time period, since they just tend to be twilek and wookiees getting involved in x-wings fighting tie fighters over generic earth like planets.
Too early for that, not that that'd stop them.
I'm sure we'll see 'Commander Tano' as part of the Alliance though...
This will be interesting to say the least.
"You thought we could not reach you. You were wrong."
Actually looking forward to this. Smart move to get the kiddies up to speed on the OT era before the ST hits. I like the Ralph angle they're supposedly taking.
Not to mention its in a pretty open continuity span (more so than CW by leaps and bounds). It could have been a lot worse though- I think we all feared a post-Yavin setting.
One request: Dave, you have my full permission to contradict the living Piell out of That Bail Thing from TFU. Seriously, just go for it, I beg you.
