Cool. I still need to finish Rebels. I’m still only in S1.

I’m in.

Not a big surprise of a premise, but that’s because it makes sense. I’d probably even say this is more or less the premise I was hoping the new animated show would have. If I had to guess though, we’ll probably hear about another new animated show soon.

Also, I assume by “anime inspired” they mean like Avatar: The Last Airbender.

of course i am excited for this! My heart has a rebels-sized hole in it.

Though I would have preferred a series about fighter pilots to be set during the OT era. It’ll be interesting to see where they take this series. I wonder if eventually it will lead through TFA and past TLJ.

What’s interesting though about Poe’s inclusion is the timeline. The Resistance was established by Leia I think about six years before TFA. But Poe only joined something like a year beforehand. So we’ll either see them stretching the limits of what they’ve previously established (I guess there aren’t any exact dates in the material related to Poe), or they’ll just set the show within a year of TFA, which is possible, but seems tricky. The other option would be to set it before Poe joined the Resistance, and when he shows up, he’s still with the New Republic, which could work.

It’ll be interesting to see what other characters they get to guest. Funnily enough, like TCW, this will be another “kids” show where we know most of the characters will wind up dead shortly after the show ends - that is of course unless they continue through TFA and TLJ.

As much as we all love the OT, I think it’s time for them to move past it a bit and start telling more stories in what is ostensibly the “current” era of Star Wars. At the moment, the amount of material in the ST period is shockingly low, considering.

I think this has been so that they don’t box themselves into any corners with ST plot/worldbuilding, but as EpIX is (presumably) written by now they’re free from that.

Give them a few years and the nuEU will be like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOCBrYgBpjQ

An anime Star Wars show isn’t a bad idea, but they could be at least a little creative with the setting, characters and places. Like, I dunno, a story set hundreds of years before TPM. And with no Force stuff.

No doubt, and it makes sense, just a little weird when you think about it and compare it to the onslaught of material that came out during the prequels, about the prequels. Even the OT had a good amount of stuff at the time too, between the various comics and such.

Well, I’m looking forward to it. Feloni’s work has been a high point in the post OT world. I just wish he’d gotten to properly finish Clone Wars, but no matter, Rebels ended well.

OT, they weren’t operating with the same canon-mindset. PT, kind of a similar mindset, but at least there everyone knew where things were headed.

Here’s hoping for some Rogue Squadron vibes from this.

No I totally get why, and I don’t really have much of a problem with it. I’m just saying it feels strange because we’re not accustomed to it.

The PT and the OT both had plenty of leg room to work with. They shot themselves in the foot with how they setup the ST time period. Very little can happen pre-TFA. Same problem with TLJ. I’ll never understand why they didn’t make sure to structure it to easily allow for additional stories when that’s their bread and butter.
