If the show goes on any longer, they'll retcon a new hope out of existence by toppling the empire themselves

Episode IX is actually going to be written by JJ Abrams and it will feature time travel going back to the events of A New Hope and a new timeline will be created.

yeah, I didn't know that either. but looking it up, lede is an alternate spelling for lead, and you still lead with a lede, so fark journalism for trying to make up their own words that mean the same thing as existing words.

Practical_Draconian: I missed the Tron cartoon, now this.


I'm a season behind on rebels, but what i've seen is really good. tron was pretty good too. i highly suggest finding a way to watch them. my cable package doesn't carry the network... but i watch them anyway, matey.

All I ask is that they decapitate this prick. Combine the all the negative qualities of Little Anakin, Big Anakin and whiny Luke and you get him:

yeah...  apparently "lede" didn't make it into a dictionary until 2008 and was just newsroom jargon up 'til then... b/c they wanted to distinguish between a strip of metal and the most important part of a story.

Just because it's in the dictionary as an "alternative spelling" doesn't make it the one, true, and proper spelling... so...   I'm sticking with "lead" until lead (in front) is spelled lede and lead (the metal) is only used to describe the metal.
 
2017-04-15 04:09:22 PM  
A lead can be many things. A lede is but one. Use the latter.

Also, this Star Wars/Princess Mononoke crossover is what fans have really been waiting for.

Plus it is kind of stupid to use now because in modern journalism there's no risk you'd confuse the metal lead and the lead of a story.

My understanding was that Rebels started four years before A New Hope, so this leaves it ending at about that point.

I believe I saw Saw Gerera in the trailer there, not looking like he did in Rogue One, so maybe we'll see how he gets there.  And as we know the Ghost is in the battle in the movie, perhaps we'll get to see their side of it on the show.

And perhaps it ends there.  Who knows.  But I'm excited for the ride.

As a pretty big fan of Rebels... I'm glad it's wrapping up. Because I want them to stop messing around in the past - and start fleshing out the time period shown in the new trilogy.

Same with the Star Wars Story movies. I liked Rogue One, and think it was handled well, but ultimately it wasn't necessary. And going forward - who the hell asked for a Han Solo prequel with a different actor? What can it possibly contribute to the overall story at this point? He's had a very clearly defined story arc from his first appearance to walking out on that bridge. So instead, let's have a story about a new dashing young rogue/smuggler guy, set in the new time period. One that may or may not turn up as an ancillary character in Episode IX or later films.

So a combination of qualities from existing characters, a strong enough combination for you to compare him to those characters, means he's nothing like those characters?

Who  do you think you are? Am I under any obligation to make any sort "case" to YOU?

My post wasn't any sort of invitation to argue. It was statement of of my personal opinion. The Ezra character is annoying like Little Anakin, impulsive and reckless like older Anakin and a  whiny little biatch like young Luke.

Now get the f*ck outta my face.

Post anything on any public forum, be prepared to defend it - people will disagree with you.

Any decent argument would bear scrutiny but all you've done there is repeat yourself and get somewhat profane.

There's plenty to explore in the time between RotJ and TFA.  Maybe they could flesh that out more.  I'm sure we'll get a ton of exposition backstory as part of Kylo and Rey's training sequences.  So there'll probably be a lot of new lore stuff to delve into.

Tht's not really the case with Rebels, I don't think.  I don't see a ton of Rebels merchandise out there.  Star Wars, yes.  But Rebels?  Handful of figures, I think some Pez dispensers.  But it's nothing like, say Episode 1 levels.

In fact, I WISH there was a little more!

He was already in season 3, heck the character is from the Clone Wars series.

Nonrepeating Rotating Binary: And as we know the Ghost is in the battle in the movie, perhaps we'll get to see their side of it on the show.


If they are going for a sad ending, the battle in Rogue One would be a good point, but I kind of want a semi-happy ending.

At least the Darth Maul story arc is done and over with.

Now to see how they treat Thrawn in Rebels and hopefully he will survive to be ambiguous and go do his thing in the Outer Rim during the events of the original trilogy.  But since they're bringing in his bodyguard, Rukh (who ultimately kills him), hopefully they won't kill him off too early.  Doubtful, it's still early enough in his career that when he does seem to get Rukh in this point of the timeline, Rukh isn't fully aware of who was responsible for what happened to his planet during The Clone Wars.

In the Aftermath  book series, there are hints that Thrawn possibly wasn't killed, but just sent outside of the galaxy to map the realms beyond.

Well right, Ghosts of Gionosys was a cool story and it appears that he will be back, and the flash of him didn't look like he looked in Rogue One.  So perhaps the Rebels episode will deal with that.

It is a Disney kid's show.  They'll kill off one or two people, but they're not going to go a full Rogue One.  I'm betting Kanan dies and Ezra lives.  Maybe Hera, Kanan and Zeb go down on the Ghost at Eadu, but Ezra and Sabine go on.  We know Captain Rex is on Endor.

I think they have another year, maybe two, in the timeline before they catch up with Rogue One. So, there's still time before the crew of the Ghost starts overlapping A New Hope.

My guess? They're ending it this season because Star Wars 8 is going to have some major reveals and ties to Rebels. Either:

a) Ezra falls to the Dark Side and becomes Snoake
b) Ezra and Sabine are Rey's parents (Hera's voice-over strongly hints that the story of Rebels has always been about Ezra and Sabine)
c) A combination of A and B

They'd have to retcon some timeline stuff then; Rebels was originally sold as being set 5 years BBY iirc. Unless they do a "1 year later" epilogue episode or something.

The only way they could do a Han Solo movie with the same actor is if he had that disease that caused him to age backwards. That doesn't sound like a good movie to me.

RevMercutio: Bring back Ahsoka.


Her ending in Twilight of the Apprentice, Part II was fitting.

And part of why it doesn't matter how many other Jedi survived and are floating around out there, none of it changes anything in the original trilogy.  The only shot of taking down Vader was his own child, and that almost didn't work.  Ezra Bridger can live to be 100 years old and feature in a hundred new stories, but he was never part of the Luke/Leia/Vader story.
 
2017-04-15 10:22:24 PM  
I thought Ahsoka had to die at the end of Clone Wars but ultimately was ok with how they handled her.

This crew that basically formed The Rebellion?  They would have to perform some serious bending of logic to have them all live and not show up in the OT or play any part.

And just an aside, the Obi-Wan/Maul duel where Ezra found him on Tatooine, was I drunk when I watched that episode or did they not explain how he didn't tell everyone else about Obi-Wan and his whereabouts?

That's a huge plot hole if you ask me.

How do you think Leia finds out Kenobi is on Tatooine?  The Rebels crew were headed to Yavin at the end of season finale.  They can be all over parallel events without ever being on-screen in the original trilogy.

Other than Leia's dad being in the room when Yoda told Obi-Wan to take Luke to the Lars family and stay and watch over them?

Not sure what Ezra has to do with that. I'm picturing this desperate briefing on the Tantive IV where Ezra reluctantly and dramatically reveals Obi-Wan's location, just for Bail to say "um... I know, kid. I'm the one who dropped him off. In this ship. Why are we having this conversation?"
