Completely understandable; he's fairly dull.
That's not exactly what he said. What he said was that we'll see the formation of Rebels on Onderon, and that this will foreshadow/reflect what later happens with the Rebel Alliance. I didn't get the impression that we'd be seeing any direct tie-ins there. More like a "this is how rebellions form" type of deal.
But... we already know the Lucas-approved story of the formation of the Rebellion! Starkiller made it. Everyone knows that.
I guess Filoni really dismisses everything that isn't TCW-related.
No one but Dave Filoni knows what "we'll see the formation of Rebels on Onderon" means. I wouldn't even try to speculate since he has a tendency to blow a lot of hot air.
"Help me Starkiller, you're my only hope"
Just wait. By the time the OT hits theaters in 3D, it will come with a new revision: all references to "Alderaan" have been replaced with "Onderon." All it would take is some minor tweaking with the sound.
A small scale rebellion used to reference and foreshadow the creation of the larger Rebel Alliance? Well, if that's the case, that doesn't sound too bad.
We need the Filoni meme back.
That's the best case scenario, but I am betting on it being far worse than that at this point, given how TCW has handled continuity so far.
I've got a bad feeling about this... just how convoluted can the Rebellion's history get? Wait, don't answer that, I probably don't want to know.
Best case scenario is that it just shows a "rebellion", not anything to do with the Rebel Alliance. Worst case, Ahsoka will probably outline how to form the Rebellion to Padme or Bail or Mon Mothma and they'll thank her for her wisdom, blah, blah, blah.
The Warfare guide slightly touched on the subject of how the Rebel Alliance handled Separatists (since some of them had a point about the Republic but just allying with Separatists would ruin the Rebellion's image), and with how they occasionally showed the Separatist Parliament (mostly just idiots who don't notice or are ignoring how Dooku and people like Gunray are actually running things), it might be interesting to show future Rebels (anti-Republic people becoming anti-Empire), but I'm not expecting the show to go for that much subtlety.
Filoni.. please just stop. I know it might not be the worst case scenario... I trust it will not be, I even believe so.. but at least advertise TCW with something fans can look forward to, not something they can fear coming.
Let's see... Darth Maul and Savage found the Rebellion on Onderon... and after TCW is over Ahsoka joins them, still alive introducing Bail and Gang to Lord Maul, the Rebellions first chief.
I reckon that if they change some of the way that Labyrinth of Evil goes....well, that won't be pretty.
Reading this thread is sad. Do you not realize that all canon must bend to the will of George and those he has put in charge like Dave. They are making a show and trying to do the best they can with the story, why would the possibly want to limit themselves with the EU? I think that it is great that they try to make it all work as much as they can. Chee even said as much in the latest Forcecast interview. But in the end, it's about the story that George wants to tell, he has allowed others to play in his universe, but it is still his. You can like it or not. But be grateful that there is an EU. Enjoy it for what it is. Enjoy that they do work very hard to make it all fit. In the end, the Clone Wars is not finished yet, so there is a lot of time for them to tell the story and bring things back together; all the while expanding our knowledge and understanding of places, people, races and the rest of the galaxy far, far, away.
PS. I find that judging some thing in the middle is like peeing in the wind, futile. I will reserve judgement of Clone Wars till it's complete as a series. Right now I am just enjoying the ride and excited to see where it takes me.
What jedimasterkenobi02 said.
Frankly, some of you guys seem to be overreacting a bit and jumping to a lot of conclusions, based on just one line. It's silly
I'll admit I am a fan like the rest and I am passionate about all things Star Wars, but since everything is always growing and expanding in this universe it is hard to judge, cause each thing leads to another story; so I just try to see where it takes me. I might not always agree with how we get there, but no one is going to agree on everything. Aaron Allston was on Tosche Station radio the other day and he talked about the passion that the writers have and they all have ideas of where things should go and they do not always agree, but they love The Wars and are trying to create the best story they can. I know that this goes for all, from George on down, trying to make something fun and worth reading or watching.
Things like TCW aren't something fun and worth reading or watching, when they invalidate something I already love, and I don't even like the new story to boot.
