Star Wars Rebels
« on: May 20, 2013, 09:56:28 PM »
So the new animated series coming in fall 2014 is Star Wars rebels.  Set between ROTS and ANH.  Let the speculation begin.

I think we all have to give the powers that be these days a little time to get the house in order.  I like the idea of the storyline, and I'm OK with waiting for the end of the Clone Wars too. Life's not about getting what you want.
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

Looking forward to new story lines & time lines.
Has Disney decided what to do with CW yet? Will it be back only on DVD? or will all "New" shows be only on Disney Networks?
Disney has many channels & just wonder where all this new stuff is going to be? I know my cable bill is going up? lol

My Comcast has 8 Disney Channels & I do not get them all on my current package.
I know Disney is going to make me add to my package...will I have to get them all?

Do Disney channel shows show up on iTunes? I don't get cable.

I wonder which members of the rebellion will be featured? Do we see any of the force unleashed characters?  Young wedge? Young Biggs?  Han and Landon as smugglers?  Chewy? Leia?  The droids working for captain Antilles? mon mothma? Bail Organa?  Ackbar?

My biggest concern is that the timeline of between Ep III & IV is & should be VERY DARK & will Disney go there properly?
I was constantly shocked at CW story lines with political & social overtones. If we are going to see a Young Vader build his Empire?
I want to see him slice & dice & force choke people who oppose him as he takes over the Galaxy. So we will have the "Imperial Wars".
Cool...& can't wait...We know the Empire has total control & now we will see exactly how they do it..

my first impression is that I fear this new show will mostly focus on the new adventures of Obi Wan

I want to see new characters take the lead, with established characters having a cameo here and there
I wont worry at all if Obi Wan will survive whatever crisis arises on Tatooine

if Hasbro decides to make figures for this show, it is my hope they will be made in a realistic style

another fear I have is that the vehicles in this show will change established features
the droid dome directly in front of the cockpit of the Jedi Star Fighters really annoyed me
don't make such big changes only to distinguish the cartoon from the movies when it comes to vehicle design

I was really hoping for some new blood
Filoni was OK I guess, but I wish this new series would have some new talent at the helm

I agree wholeheartedly about the figures. I picked up a Cad Bane yesterday only because he looked realistic.

I think is mostly the Rebel Alliance
So Bail, Mothma, Abkbar, Capt Antilles, R2, 3PO, some other former Senators, a Rogue Jedi here and there, Leia at some point.

I doubt we'll see Ben, Luke, Biggs. Maybe a cameo of Han/Chewie/Lando

I dont see how this will be too dark considering its Disney but that would mess up the storyline since the Rebels didnt get a victory over the Empire until they got the plans.

I want to see the Vader from opening scenes of EpIV where he basically boarded & took over Leia's ship without mercy & completely focused on evil deeds & willing to do them too. The Galaxy feared him for many reasons & I want to see them all...

Being ruthlessly evil does not mean blood & gore, although it does help some...
Lucas never showed much blood & we knew Vader was the Baddest MF'er in the Galaxy with reasons.

He knew the Children were the future & they had to be stopped.. I understand completely...

Was discussing this possible show with some fellow nerds.. & why not bring Windu back? If Maul can be sliced in half & come back?
Why not a blind, half cooked, handless, Windu? We saw Maul die & he is back, we never saw Windu go splat. Why not? it worked for Sith.
Why not a Jedi Master too.. Just so many possibilities...

Whatever Whitney.... ;)
I would agree except the Jedi Purge was about the Clones taking out the Jedi and the kids getting taken out by Big Bad Vader

OMG- I was actually hoping the rumors about one of the standalone movies being about the Jedi seven samurai and one of the Jedi being 1 armed and cooked Mace. And yes if Maul, who was sliced in half can come back- why not someone who never even died on screen. And then he can get his wish of not going out like a chump.

That would be cool & more believable than Maul coming back..
As for Jedi Purge, Paply wanted NO threats or rivals to his Empire, Clones & Vader were just following orders.
Doing what must be done to preserve the Empire from future threats from younglings becoming Jedi. Palpy thought long term..

But Vader is supposed to be the baddest MF in the Galaxy- you would wanna think he wouldve taken out the main threats.

To answer one concern.
The new show will be featured on Disney DX channel only from what I've read.

As far as the storyline goes. I just as curious.
Will it be after the CW shows that will come out on DVD/bluray or will it be spread out over the 19 years?

Would like them to stay on course as far as actual character development and not concentrate so much on the political aspects. (though it's an important part). But either way. I'm just glad we will have something on TV

I want to see how the Empire was built & fortified through fear & intimidation with death & destruction for all who oppose it.
Like our US Govt.. lol, The Social & Political themes are just as important to a believable Universe.

I hope to see everything right up to when the Senate is disbanded & dissolved..
So we can see how they do it & repeat the process here? lol

Doubt that- the end of the Senate happened during ANH. I think it will end with the battle where they get the plans.

A show focusing on the Bothan Spies & how they operate could be very cool.
Undermining & leaking info from the Empire would be a interesting show.

Dont know too much about him. I guess he survives order 66? How long does he live? Hes a very cool looking character. For sure one of my favorite figures. I guess i could do a google search instead of asking here.

He was in one clone wars episode but is primarily featured in the comics. He was Ayla Securas master.  Lucas ordered him not killed off in the comics, so many have speculated that he may pop up again in the now defunct live action series.  Is Star Wars rebels going to be the animated version of that?  I don't know......
