STAR WARS: REBELS Discussion Thread!

Unless Rebels is retconned and trashed they aren't going to mess up anything that happens in it when it comes to characters. 

 

Boba Fett was eaten by a Sarlacc and came back. Maul was cut in half, thrown down a bottomless shaft and came back. Trench (minor CW antagonist) survived 2 apparent death scenes before really dying 3rd time.

 

No death is really certain in Star Wars,unless you get a very explicit death scene.

actually, some of them are.

Yeah, the "Crystal Crisis on Utapau" and "Bad Batch" arcs are considered canon. Two other unfinished arcs from Clone Wars have been adapted into canon: The Darth Maul arc was adapted into the Son of Dathomir comic, and the 8-part arc with Asajj and Vos got turned into the book Dark Disciple. Most of the rest of the unfinished CW stuff, including the Bane/Boba scene, appears to be non-canon. The Siege of Mandalore got a little adaptation in the Ahsoka novel, but it would've been cool to see it fully implemented.

With Filoni in charge of all Star Wars animation for Disney, I'm hoping that some of these stories can eventually be made into Direct-To-Video releases. If The Mouse can crank out a CGI Tinkerbell every year, why not Clone Wars/Rebels material too?

Because it eats into their core Princess/Magic/Tinkerbell budget?

If it makes you feel better, I don't think the unaired episodes are considered canon.  So Bane could still return later.

I believe the point he's trying to make is that ending a character's arc is meaningless as long as the character is alive(and sometimes, not even then).  Because as long as a character was popular, someone else will ALWAYS bring them back, no matter how "finished" their business was.

Ashoka's arc was pretty well sewn up in TCW.  But they brought her back in Rebels anyway, because she's popular.  Boba Fett was dead, but didn't stay that way, because MARKETING!  It's as true now as it was in the EU.

Well Disney also owns Marvel which I believe is still the reigning king of killing off major characters and bringing them back without altering the universe. If there's any cross contamination, we ought to have all the dead characters from the ST back by episode 9.

ET already was plugged into the universe by Lucas and we're now short a Princess due to tragic IRL events. And Disney has employees who's whole purpose of employment There's bound to be some Cinderella looking extra at an Imperial ball in the background or a bunch of really small winged creatures wearing leaves for clothes.

Two planets with one Death Star.

Try to remember that Star Wars is one of the most profitable IPs in the entire world, so the answer to that is a firm, "No."

And how does Star Wars compare to that, thoigh...

 

if Disney could churn out a $10 animated movie every year, they would.  But they haven’t... so the reason why, is?

 

no harm in speculating ?

Because they're extremely cheaply made.

I'm not against animated tv movies every two years rather then series but not as cheap as the typical Disney fare.

You are literally made of gold,  Advisor.

Sir  if you are planning to use me as a conductor to hotwire a control panel to break into the tracking system of a certain flagship, I would certainly insist on a lovely dinner first.  With at least two Zeltron dinner companions.

Sorry was was never into furrys. 

As per COMPNOR Imperial Edict,  Human High Culture in The New Order is The Empire's codified policy of Humanocentric speciesism.  It centered around the belief that Humans are inherently superior to other species.

There is room for Aliens of course, as long as they know their place and respect those above their station.

For instance, let’s not forget, for a time, Grand Moff Tarkin kept Ackbar as a favored pet.

Hate everything about the show. The characters are as cliche as it gets, the story is predictable, the animation and character designs are horrible, the main character uses a slingshot(!?!?). No clever plot twists, no snappy dialoge, or intriguing moral dilemmas. If you want to watch a "kid's" show done correctly, see Legend of Avatar, Samurai Jack, original Clone Wars, Adventure Time, ect. I was hoping the show would be targeted towards a teen/young adult audience since it covers a very dark and violent time in the SW lore, instead we get a show for 10 year olds made only to sell action figures. As a lifelong SW fan, I wanted to enjoy this show...but I can't find anything about the show I actually enjoy. Don't mean to sound like an ***, but I'm a bit disappointed that we didn't get the mature Star Wars show I've been waiting for decades to see.

lol, you haven't watched enough of it yet XD.  peoples get killed in Rebels left and right XD

Important people ? Not one in 3 and a half seasons so far (Ashoka doesn't count, she wasn't really a part of the crew). And they have yet to kill Kanan AND Ezra to keep up with ANH.

Imperial underlings have it easy as our brave family friendly heroes actively try to avoid killing them. The ridiculousness reached its peak when Hera set her blaster to stun in the last episode.

Solo fell down a shaft, landed in a trash pile on top of an armorless Phasma, who rescued him from the Not-Death-Star. They were going to open a new shipping business and Han wasn't in Ep 8 because he was STILL WAITING at the licensing office for her to show up. She is currently climbing out of a flaming pit on the SSD-2. 

Luke's okay, he just left his robe to go cliff diving. 

Leia died between movies straining herself on the toilet. Shoulda eaten more fiber. 

Hondo activated the suicide hyperdrive on the Raddus because no one wanted to hear about how she was jilted by yet another guy she met on the internet, so she is, in fact, dead.

that's Legends only. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Human_High_Culture

COMPNOR still exists in canon, but "human high culture" does not. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Commission_for_the_Preservation_of_the_New_Order

they were still speciesist, but not nearly to the point Legends made them.
