  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.

    Who knows, depending on how Rebels ends the next animated series could continue to follow the ones who survive the show.
    I always thought it would be cool to have spin-off movies set durning the events of the OT. Now I'm thinking it would be best if they did a show. It could follow Hera, Sabine, Zeb, Chopper, and any new crew members (I'm assuming Ezra and Ahsoka don't survive the Rebels finale). It could pick up right around the ending of Rogue One durning the space fight or just after the destruction of the first Death Star and span all the way through to a couple of years after the Battle of Endor. In animated form we could bring in Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie, and any other OT characters as reoccurring or regulars characters of the show. They could call it Star Wars: Rebel Alliance or just Star Wars: Alliance.

    Here is a interview Collider did with Filoni that was uploaded today.



    He didn't actually deny that he isn't doing a live action series. DF is great at answering stuff without actually answeing it though.

    What if we get multiple spin offs? Sabine / Ahsoka go find Ezra, Zeb and Kallus space ranger buddy cop, and Jacen staring in one? [\spoiler]

    I doubt Hera will give up her son anyway.

    Guys, this isn't a designated spoiler thread- use tags for major stuff like that. I won't say it again.

    The 7th Fleet gets taken away with Thrawn to survive the entire OT... Pellaeon gets a mention... I wonder what they could possibly be setting up. :p

    After the events of the Rebels SERIES finale, I'm going to change one of my percentages above...
    The coda in the finale pretty much sets up an Ahsoka/Sabine adventure to find Ezra post battle of Endor, so my 35% is now probably closer to 95% IF they get the green light. Also, there are so many more characters they can introduce from the OT & ST as well as the characters from Rebels to make appearances and join in on the fun.

    Y'know

    while it seems like "that'll be the entire show"I kind of doubt it, I mean they WILL get back to that plot again but I'm thinking it's more of a subplot in whatever new series (like action or animation) comes out that takes place later in the timeline. Kind of like how Ahsoka in Rebels S2 was a season-long subplot that spun off from Clone Wars. So I think that'll be a part of whatever comes next but not the main thrust.

    My idea for the next TV show based upon the Rebels finale would be

    Spin off series: Ezra n' Thrawn in a wacky, mismatched roommate sitcom.

    "Now, Thrawn, this paint is shows my side of the Star Destroyer, and the other half is your side, don't come over to my side, I don't come over to your side."
    "I will study your flaws, Commander Bridger, and in time, your side will be mine again."
    "Ugh, whatever. You have any leftover Space Whale meat?"
    "Just a bit. I got some pinecones here too, though."

    I see there is speculation on the main page of this Site, about the next Animated Series being about the search for Ezra Bridger (The Wesley Crusher of Star Wars).:rolleyes: I hope this isn't true. I like Ashoka; but we have seen enough of her for a while. I would rather see a Series set between ROTJ and TFA; to see Han, Luke, and Leia together again. Or at least something different from Rebels.

    Han Luke and Leia actually dont seem to spend almost any time together after Jakku. Luke is always off teaching or looking for Jedi stuff.

    Seriously? She has hardly had any screen time, probably about 3% of that of the OT characters.

    True, but there could be a least a little interaction between Luke and the others, before he totally goes into exile. It would still be cool to see Luke teaching Ben, before he went Dark Side. And of course Han and Leia would be together for many years.

    @BadAcrobat
    Maybe not in Rebels; but in The Clone Wars Series, Ahsoka had more combined screen time than any of OT Characters had in the OT.

    The best part is that Jim Cummings is the VA for Pellaeon. =D=
    They should scrap Joruus. How about Snoke instead? [face_skull]

    Well, that could have something to do with the fact that TCW was bout 60-70 hours total viewing, compared to about 7 hours of OT.

    How about a show about the era when the Malachor superweapon was used?

    I also wonder if Filoni and Lucas talked about the origins of the Jedi and Sith and if Mortis and the Purrghills could tie into that.

    I mean...why not have Ahsoka with a major role? Maybe there'll be something new, and I'm somewhat surprised that Sabine didn't end up going back to Mandalore to take up leadership there.
    LOL!! I completely LOLed and can't contain it.

    You joke, but i actually thought it would be cool if when Sabine and Ahsoka finally find them. Ezra and Thrawn have become friends.
    And have united to help the Chiss Ascendancy battle the nascent First Order throughout the Unknown Region.
    Now that would make for an interesting next series, in my humble opinion. And give everyone the FO/Snoke backstory they've wanted.

    I mean notice how they had Price be the one responsible for Kanan's death?. Ezra and Thrawn haven't done anything that they can't
    come back from. Ezra: "You bombed my city!, but then i had a giant squid-whale strangle you, so i guess we're even."
