  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.

    I sort of agree with you in terms of that Ahsoka should not get a happy ending in Rebels. She ain't getting one though, Dave knows better than that. ;)

    I don't think killing her off in TCW would have been such a good idea. Her leaving the order made her character much more interesting. Also it made much more sense in a grand scheme of things, from my point of view Anakin has a very good reason to question or even hate the Council after how they treated Ahsoka.

    Personally, I don't think her dying in TCW was really ever in the cards. We can talk about how it was directed at a more mature audience, how loss was part of the show, and that Lucas thought she should have died and Filoni persuaded him otherwise until the cows come home but I really don't think her dying was what was planned on happening. If we hadn't gotten Rebels, she would have faded off into obscurity but now that we do then I see her story being wrapped up in some fashion. Though I sincerely doubt that how her story ends will please everyone.

    I like her character, but in the grand scheme of things it is out of my hands as to what will happen to her. The fact that she knew both of Luke and Leia's parents in my mind is rather important. I don't know of any other EU character besides maybe Mon Mothma, who may have known both of them. But regardless I hope we see some good stuff from her in Rebels, whatever her fate may be.

    Dave Filoni made the greatest contribution to Star Wars. That is THE CLONE WARS. I am really praying God will speak to Filoni in a dream to finish his undone work :p

    All I know of Dave Filoni is what I see on interviews and special features . . . and I love listening to him. I will only speak of him with regard to TCW, because that is where most of my attention goes. I love how he worked his affection for wolves into the Clone Wars universe. I love how he prevented TCW from becoming overly sappy and sentimental, how he put some edgy stuff in there, and how he wasn't afraid to put his name behind the occasional "goofball" episode (most of which were humorous in their own ways). I absolutely love his portrayal of Anakin Skywalker -- much more so than what we see in the prequels. He gave us a mostly realistic depiction of what a "Grand Army" would look and act like. And shame on me for saying this . . . but his male characters acted like men. So many shows these days have "the sensitive male" who can't make a hard decision to save his life, cries at the drop of a hat, and is so incompetent, there always has to be a woman to save his rear end (think, "The Force Awakens). What I loved about Filoni is that in TCW, he had tough women, but he didn't have to make the men idiots in order to make the women be tough.

    Seems like he is doing that with Rebels, many loose ends are being tied up. Top man for doing that. I like how he focuses on OT, PT and TCW characters. Leia and
    Maul
    in the same series is awesome. The last bit of good Star Wars Ill ever get.

    Please add spoiler tags when you talk about
    Maul in Rebels.
    as that is a major spoiler and must be tagged until the episode airs.

    Dave Filoni has done so much to re-invigorate the spirit and mystery back into Star Wars. TCW is what pulled me back into the universe after the PT. It's obvious he's a true fan of the mythology and is completely dedicated to doing the very best job he can with his opportunity in the SW universe. I'd be very curious in how he'd do with live-action rather than animated. I wonder if his skills would transfer over very easily, or if it would be a great challenge.

    In all honesty, Dave should be credited for bringing some of the Old Republic gold mine to canon; I'm not the only member, who has said, the Old Republic era has so much untapped potential for the franchise.

    There are many that would love to see him direct an Anthology film. I think he would be great.

    I met him during Star Tours in 2009. Really great guy and incredibly down to earth. He drew me a custom Anakin face too. :p

    To me, Filoni is the true man behind SW (along with Pablo Hidalgo). I wish these two ran Lucasfilm. They get Star Wars, as a whole franchise, and don't just focus on the nostalgia and constantly only referring to the OT. Filoni throws references from all spectrums of the SW universe into TCW and Rebels, and actually looks into the books and games and comics, same with Hidalgo (although that's his job as a member of the Story Group, but still...).

    I really appreciate everything Filoni has brought to the SW universe, all the new characters that have become my favorites like Kanan and Chopper and Cad Bane and Ahsoka. I hope to meet him someday to personally thank him, as to me, he's almost as important as George Lucas to the SW universe.
