  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.

    Well, I think its important that I bring this out but did you guys know that the Galaxy of Adventures got nominated for an Annie Award. This is awesome, Titmouse, also had Niko and the Sword of Light nominated for an Annie award also. This is fantastic.

    Glad there will be some General Leia coverage, since her appearance in ROS had to be limited - they can do anything with animation though. I look forward to more of these shorts, but I am not a fan of the toy line that goes with it. Wish they'd go back to the 3.75 figures packed with a comic - far better than 5 inch animated figures. Imagine Luke & Leia in training gear with a comic the details that adventure!

    I could see 2 shorts about the rides. Maybe Dok Ondar since he's also such a prominent character. Hondo! :D

    Really not interested in this now if it is going for ST only. I think the series should be doing new things in every era, or maybe adapt some of the novel and comic stories.

    yah I think it would be weird if it was just ST since the first 2 runs bounced around the eras. I wonder if they'll get the original actors back who did their roles like Ridley and Boyega or they'll have to get soundalikes.

    Really odd to limit it to ST stories now that the ST is over. Wouldn’t that have been more appropriate in the lead up to TROS? As a hype-builder?

    We know there will be shorts celebrating ESB's 40th anniversary. I would like more PT shorts but I understand why they want to focus more on the ST era. Plus, it doesn't mean they won't show any PT scenes like they did in the first batch.

    I read in the star wars insider that 18 more of these shorts are coming soon with three of them in Batuu. There are going to be additional ones covering TESB 40th year anniversary which is good. I, agree that this should have came out last year for the lead up to TROS and it kind of makes it a bit obsolete to do it now that the movie is out. But, this style of animation is not easy to do and not too common anymore unless your watching some sort of kids show. We haven't seen anything like this since the micro series of TCW which I still consider the mack daddy of star war animation. So getting more even after the movie has come out is awesome.

    I do hope tonight that Titmouse can win the Annie Awards for the show. Star Wars animation has only won it once with the micro-series and has never won it again, even though they were nominated several times for the other shows. So, I am keeping my fingers crossed for both the shorts and Niko and the Sword of light. I always said that those guys need a contract for a star wars animated series. Don't know why that hasn't been looked at with the awesome quality of the animation

    I love that character. It would be neat to see some of her adventures from Phasma and Black Spire made into Galaxy of Adventure shorts.

    You know the Annie awards sucks. They gave awards to stuff that I had never heard of. Frozen 2 got hit at the beginning. Sadly, Galaxy of Adventures did not win. Ohh well

    As fun as GoA is, Love Death and Robots is leagues above it, so that was a deserved win.

    Just think of it as a belated win for the guys who made those TOR cinematics.

    I feel like these should’ve come about before TROS.

    lowkey post TROS content? I thought it was going to be SKB but Poe and BB-8 are there, and we get more flying stormtroopers, who the gang only first encountered in TROS. Plus Rey and Poe are in their TROS getup.

    Wait, so if some shorts take place before TROS...

    "They fly now?!" suddenly makes no sense

    Hey Rose! if she gets 7 lines she passes her dialogue count in TROS I believe.
