Imagine the discussion if we had the interwebs back in 1986.

Droids need a DVD release and to be made canon again. Ewoks too.

It seems like people are really embracing the new characters. In fact, the big question people ask me now about Star Wars is, “Are Finn and Poe gay lovers?” And really how the f*ck would I know? My second husband left me for a man, so my gaydar isn’t exactly what you’d call Death Star level quality. ----Carrie Fisher

I concur. And restore the original Ewoks and Droids Adventure Hour titles or at least include them via seamless branching.
As both shows were edited on film, a Blu Ray release is possible. A 5.1 remix on Droids could be spectacular too.

My kids are loving FoD. I’m OK. I was alarmed at how passive Leia was in her own episode. She’s just been in the one with the Ewoks, right? OTOH, the Ewoks came off as pretty cool.

Is it bad that I was more excited to hear Matt Lanter and Catherine Taber than I ever would have been to hear Hayden and Natalie?

They’ve arguably played those parts longer than Hayden and Natalie did.

It’s really starting to bug me that there are hundreds of episodes set in the PT with all of the main characters. But seeing the OT characters is like an event or at least a treat, doled out sparingly and grudgingly.

I love Rebels, I do. But what I REALLY want is a weekly show set between Star Wars and Empire with LOTS of good old Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewie!

With Rebels winding down, maybe we’ll get a show set during the OT? I’d pay to see a Han Solo series at this point.

I have a feeling the next show will probably be set post-OT. Marvel seems to have a lock on the OT period unfortunately. =(

I still believe in The Adentures of Obi-Wan and Anakin pre ep2. Or in a show about Obi-wan and Qui-gon (and Sabine). We really need these.

I really hope for a young Padawan Anakin show. This would add more depth to his character development as well as Palpatines influence on him from the beginning. His relationship to Obi-Wan and their problems could also work out really well, as they’re having more of master-padawan realtionship than that of two friends.
All these things were also shown in the “Anakin & Obi-Wan” comic, where it worked out very good imo. It’s still questionable if this would give the showrunners enough material, but they could tell some really good stories in this time.

These were OK. But I was surprised at how much I’ve missed the Rebels characters after only a few months. Next year is going to be tough.

Funny how technological developments are supposed to improve things. Yet 2D animation has turned to ass since traditional animation was phased out.

I’d rather breathe passed gas than watch plastic Flash.

Only watched a couple of season 2, they seem a lot better than the first batch. Accidental Allies was fun and surprising for who it co-stars. Also, that voice actor does a pretty decent Han.

Yeah that was definitely my favorite of the last four and I don’t remember what the first four were like but it’s probably better than those as well.

Whoops so did I. I trusted your description and didn’t really pay attention to the title.
