  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) 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.

    No. Ahsoka's heart and soul are a part of the Falcon. That's why it's the fastest ship in the galaxy.

    Hey, ya never know, Anifan. You might end up liking Ahsoka "Better Than Ezra"! ;)

    Erm, sorry. On to Lando: how much can we count on Filoni's cronies keeping him in check and disallowing fanservice for fanservices sake...

    I don't think Lando is nearly as young as 20 something years old during Rebels. Not if Lando is relatively as old as Billy Dee Williams himself was during Empire and Jedi.

    If Lando was the same age as Han - he could be in his late twenties 5 years before ANH.

    I can imagine him as this Verrick (Korra) like character who always needs something from the main cast and becomes annoying to them (though hilarious for us)

    If Lando matches Billy Dee's age then he is 35 at the beginning of Rebels. Not that a character necessarily has to match an actor's age.

    He's probably playing Lando's dad like in those little lego shorts. "May the funk be with you!"

    Ahsoka was Lando's copilot on the Millenium Falcon. They eventually got married and consummated their marriage in the Falcon's smuggling compartments.

    Or, as Ahsoka called them . . . Snuggling Compartments!

    Hondo: "And if you screw up just this much, you'll be flying a spice freighter full of rubber eopie **** out of Kessel!"

    Lando: "Yes, sir!"

    Seriously, Lando and Hondo together in at least one scene has the possibility of being awesome.

    It's funny, I've never really liked Lando. The twelve year-old me thought he was really slimy for selling Han and Leia out and my impression of him hasn't really changed over time. I honestly wish George Lucas had gone with his original script and had Lando perish in the Death Star explosion. Though that would cost us the Falcon, so I guess it's good he survived. Not looking forward to seeing Lando in Rebels. I sure hope he doesn't double-cross the heroes like he did in ESB.

    He'll probably die saving Han in episode eight, or something, I figure.

    Man I really don't want to drag this entirely back to TCW and yeah its corny but Lando and Hondo vs Cad Bane does have a certain ring to it.

    I love me some Lando.

    And yes, him and Hondo vs Bane has the potential to be hilarious.

    I was awfully glad when I first heard the news that Billy Dee will be gracing us with his talents again.

    Like just about everyone in the known GFFA, I'm assuming Williams will be reprising his role of the Old Smoothie, but hey, who knows? The confirmation was for the actor, not the character.

    Anyone think that there's any chance at all that it will be a new character Williams will be voicing, and not Lando, himself?

    Nah, I didn't think so. It's got to be Lando.
