The trailer alone has my attention compared to shows like Resistance. Not crazy about the simple animation style, but some minor tweaks, especially to the human faces would make it even better. Great to see the classic characters, but I'm not expecting much depth. Like the other SW shorts, they tend to be used as advertisements for products. Hasbro already has a repack line of basic figures for the series - I hope we get something new though, a newly sculpted ANH Leia would be great!
I'm gonna love this and i know it. I guess we will see these shorts trougout to episode 9. these first probaly be mainly original trilogy then prequel and sequel. we may get 20 episodes before next december.
That trailer was legitimately excellent. The LFL animation output is getting better and better.
some of the scenes like lkue taking his fathers saber, reminded me of japanese anime.
One thing is for sure, from just that first look video, the animation is infinitely superior to Forces of Destiny's. The movement of Luke's clothes and hair when he turns on the lightsabre is quite impressive, and the shot of Vader choking Capt Antilles is really well done and quite dark. They are clearly aiming this to appeal to the parents just as much as their kids, especially with the 80s anime like style. I'd actually like to know what animation studio is producing this. I don't think it looks like Lucasfilm animation studio's work.
The animation style has to be simple it’s being put on YouTube it can’t be expensive at all.
I will pass on this series. I like the animation style but i want to see new content, not animated versions of movie scenes.
Their is practically nothing set between ESB and RoTJ, why not an original story their?
Then their is the New Republic era.

An adaptiion of Shadows of the Empire.
This seems pretty pointless. Thankfully it's just a YouTube series so I can easily ignore it.
I like the animation style until it gets to the faces but even then the faces are better than what FOD Anakin's ended up looking like.
Kinda torn on this one.
This looks really cool.
I hope they do everything in chronological order; including the anthology films and the sequel trilogy too.
That's valid, but some of it is so simply drawn / animated that it looks unfinished, thats my only objection. As I said, if they updated the human faces, it would look much better.
I agree. The animation looks good, but why not new content? If they are bothering to animate Han, Luke, and Leia; then why not show what they are up to after ROTJ? Or they could even do another Micro-Series, set between Episode VIII and IX, like the original (which I loved) that took place between Episodes II and III.
Really wish Disney would stop remaking the original trilogy. If I did that same type of thing in my life I'd expelled from graduate school.
What an odd choice. I like the style of it, and the character models. So visually, I really like the look. But as far as I can tell its basically just scenes from the OT, just animated and "spruced up"? Really weird decision-making there. Why not just a micro-series with new stories (like the original CW series) set during the OT?
Man I would love to see a nu canon version of Shadows of the Empire in this animation.
Or if they want Han, a big 3 adventure set during the last year of the war. Not long after RoTJ.
This should be interesting
If they give us a canon story between ESB and ROTJ, I doubt it’ll be in this format. I’m hoping it will be a cinematic or TV live action release.

Better to use animation than recast all the OT characters. Nobody wants a new Luke and Leia.
Agreed, but I’d rather they do it in high quality 3D animation. You’ve got Leia, Luke, Lando, Boba and Vader...... it shouldn’t be wasted on a kiddy cartoon.

I'm sure we will be treated to stuff like this sooner or later.
So does this mean FOD is officially over?
Looks fun and the animation is definitely heavily inspired by Japanese anime.
I like this a lot, and supposedly its part of something bigger. So there coming out with toys, maybe books and a comic book series or something from Joe Books. Looking forward to it. I'm not feeling Resistance and I for one am tired of the lets make all canon type stories. Its becoming very boring. Not a fan of the new canon anyway. Hopefully they'll cover the movies and then branch out all the way up to Episode 9.
