I don’t think that is irrelevant! This could be a good place to discuss the animation side of things and how it could apply to a show like Rebels.
To address Resistance, yeah, like Snooker said, it apparently is going to be 3D that mimics the style of traditional animation. I’m very skeptical but no harm in trying new things either. And yeah, the Clone Wars Microseries was great. I think obviously the animation side of the franchise is not going to appeal to everyone, but I also think there is a lot to like as well. And I think a lot of younger fans really love it, so even if it’s not what we wanted, there are others fans who really love it.
I do think that Rebels is far from perfect though. While I haven’t really thought of doing it myself anytime soon, I do think someone could possibly do a series of edits for the series. I’m not sure if you could make it a series of tv-to-movie edits like smudger is doing for Clone Wars, you could treat it like a miniseries or just shorter seasons, combining three episodes into one episode maybe.
For me, I wouldn’t want to cut out all of the goofy stuff, but there is a lot that could be cut out.
I also think it would be worth trying to change things, like [SPOILERS] kill of Sabine’s mom and brother with some rotoscope magic or something. And while there are a few filler episodes, a lot of the filler often ends up playing a role later down the road, like the use of the Purgills in the final episode.
It would be interesting to go through and see what could be cut for starters, and see what narrative changes you would like to make, if those changes are actually feasible.
