Rey is having a difficult time with her own movies since the show runners are more interested in developing Kylo as a villain than Rey as a hero. Plus all the fans and general audience want Leia to be dead pre-opening crawl. Add the detail of Rose's priorities being a danger to herself and the whole galaxy, I don't think she's long for this franchise. In conclusion, when you watch the last shots of TLJ with the stable boy, that should be a clear indication that Star Wars is heading back to it's male dominated roots.

Forces of Destiny is awesome, but it's more of a 'fill in the gaps' method of adding to the lore instead of being something that truly stands on it's own to tell a unique story. I think female characters deserve better than being filler.

Rebels may have had Sabine and Hera, but I think Dave Filoni seems pretty content with having his Star Wars series revolve around the 'special boy' who everyone can't stop hero worshipping. The female characters may be fun, but you will never have the series be categorized as their story. Hera for example. Why isn't she the leader of the group? She owns and pilots the freaking Ghost yet she always calls Kanan the leader.

Hera has always been referred as the leader of the Ghost Squad...

Yeah, I always got the impression that Hera was the leader, though it's not something that was explicit.

Star Wars Resistance animated series character details revealed

https://dorksideoftheforce.com/2018/...tance-details/

Quote:
Thanks to a recent interview with Jim Rash that revealed a little bit about the characters that he and Bobby Moynihan will be playing in the series.

Apparently, the two actors will be portraying quartermasters in charge of dispersing Resistant equipment to members of the Resistance. Jim Rash will apparently be the voice of an alien.

I would've been much more interested in exploring the time-frame in between Episode VIII and IX myself. The trouble with most Star Wars content offered outside the ST is that it is constrained heavily by events we already know the outcome too, which leads to rather boring stories that don't leave room for many surprises.

LF animation has never let me down (ok don't love FoD, but that doesn't really count)

Loved Clone Wars and Rebels has been growing on me after watching most episodes. Can't wait for another.

I loved Clone Wars, but Rebels sucked. I hope Resistance will be better

The Cone Wars was tolerable, certainly much better than the actual prequels, but Rebels was excellence from beginning to end. I wasn't a fan of the animation style of either though, but the characters and stories of Rebels won me over.
Resistance is supposed to have a more anime-style look, so that sounds great.

Funny I hated almost every Charakter in Rebels especially Ezra. Only the returning guys from clone wars I liked.

I didn't like Ezra either, but the rest of the cast were great.

I think Rebels started to really improve around the same time Clone Wars got way better both around the middle of season 2. Seemed like they geared a bit too strong for younger kids in the beginning.

However the Clone Wars/ Rebel tie-ins picked up, not to mention the great James Earl Jones as Vader. They made a great effort to continue the left over stories from Mandalorians to Geonosis to Tie-ins with Saw Gerrera, Maul, Night sisters, and Hondo. Thrawn was great also.

Looking forward to this, just finishing up season 2 of Rebels and have enjoyed it so far.

Mhmm for my Season 2 was the worst Season accept the episodes with
[Show spoiler]Asuka
they were awesome.

For me Sesaon 4 was the best, okay the ending itself was kinda crap by
[Show spoiler]bringing Asuka back to life
which means sooner or later
[Show spoiler]we will see the other dead rebels agian
potential storyline for resistance

Loved Clone Wars, loved Rebels (even if the ending did seem a bit rushed, at least CW got the remaining episodes screened eventually to provide some sort of closure) and I'm sure I'll dig Resistance seeing as I'm all about getting content that fills in the gaps between the OT and the ST. And with Filoni at the helm, yet again, he'll probably use it to tie off loose ends from his previous series, just like how he tied off some loose ends of CW in Rebels. Not gonna lie, the showdown between Asohka and Vader in S2 was absolutely spine-tingling.

Agreed all around; I've pretty much dug all the canon cartoons, although I admit to have navigated CLONE WARS carefully, avoiding any and all episodes that centered entirely around Jar-Jar or the droids. My only beef with CLONE WARS and REBELS was the animation style; I just don't dig that clunky marshmallowy character look that still reminds me of the 1985 music video for Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing". I'm very excited for some new content in the classic 2D anime style.

I even loved the animation style, and those painterly backgrounds for skies and distant vistas always looked so beautiful. If anything the 3D animation stopped it from getting too cutesy which is perhaps my only apprehension about them switching to 2D for Resistance.

Even Jar Jar had really great episode which was kind of a Temple of Doom homage. It involved Windu and the head Nightsister Mother Talzin. (season 6)
