Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    Just finished rewatching Genndy Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars on D+ and oh boy. I’d love for some more Star Wars in that style.

    It'd be great if Genndy got to do more SW, but this is gonna be exclusively Japanese studios and creators.

    I'd love it if Tartakovsky came back to Star Wars, but I doubt he'd want to. He was not thrilled with the way TCW took a lot of designs and similar from his show at the same time as LFL basically swept CW'03 under the rug.

    To be fair it’s not like LFL ever cared about legends

    I would be hyped if Studio TRIGGER was able to take a shot at this.

    True, but I totally understand that a director and studio who worked their behinds off to deliver (at the time) actual Canon animations for LFL might feel ripped off when the new show takes over, using a lot of their designs and even characters (Ventress) without even acknowledging them. I would be wary of working with that employer again as well.

    Oh I don’t blame them one bit. They were gonna rip off even more as at one point they thought of including Durge and Alpha

    Yeah, you're right, Rex was originally Alpha. Lucas changed it because he didn't want too many characters' names beginning with A.

    And Cad Bane was gonna be replaced by Durge, but I forget why they changed that. Glad they did since Bane is a much better villian.

    They change Durge into Bane because animation then can't animated his Gen'Dai abilities, so they must change him into human, think that Filoni don't like so he decide to use Duros instead

    The TCW concept art of Durge was crappy, looked like a bulkier Clone wearing Mando/Clone style hybrid armor. Probably later re-used for Clone Force 99,lol. Probably aside for the name and similar armor/gadgets the character was too different which was probably the point since Filoni resisted adding familiar and established characters supposedly on the show , but this is also apparently when it suited him.

    Durge was cool and ruthless new character when he first appeared working alongside Ventress in the Star Wars: Republic comic many years ago now, but once Lucas wanted Grievous added the Durge character got pushed to the side as did Ventress. Glad they kept his armor largely intact in neo-Canon, would be interesting to see how they handle him even personality wise.

    RIP Cydon Prax, the oft forgotten second henchman of Dooku between Jango and Durge

    What if we got an episode that looked like Violet Evergarden? The really pretty, cinematic sorta look.

    To be perfectly clear, these are all actual shots from the show.

    I would like it.

    I'm hoping for each story to be done in a different style of anime, similar to how Animatrix was done.

    It's still crazy that we're actually getting a SW anime. The medium has so much potential for storytelling and art, I hope they use it to its fullest.

    im surprised no ones mentioned that we could get some Mortis God stories in this.


    Also do we think they will do an Opening and Ending for the full thing ? or will all of the shorts have there own OP/ED ? or will we even get one ? cause The OPENING and ENDING can set the tone for the anime

    Case in point The Recent Higurashi OP

    It would be great if Visions had a kickass OP or ED.

    Durge is back in Canon (New Aphra Comic), so perhaps we might see him back on the screen in the future.
    I Kind of like him, specially his bundle of Worms form

    I think anime might be only on screen appearance of him' unless they go bigger budget for just one character.

    I would also love to see something like Mushoku Tensei. Case in point:

    It's a good show, by the way, check it out, season 2 comes out in June.

    He’s to OP. So I hope Aphra launches him into the sun where he belongs

    It sounds like Durge might be in the whole crossover event.

    Agree, I hope he stays in the comics, that seems to be where he belongs.
