I hope from the bottom of my heart that when Rebels is done we can actually see some of the clone wars story threads be finished. Seeing Anakin descending into a disheveled mess barely held together like he was in the prequels as a result of Ahsoka leaving is a must. Seeing Grevious kill some more Jedi (maybe even the council member he was almost written to kill) in order to give him some teeth and make the duel in EP 3 seem less like a predictable joke is a must. Bad batch is kind of its own self contained thing but fuck, do it. Animating Boba's progression to his OT self, would be huge for redeeming that character and build so much demand for more content related to him. Out with the new in with the old dave filoni pls
I've seen suggestions (maybe here as well?) of a Siege of Mandalore TV movie. That'd give us Ahsoka, Maul, Order 66, a view of Anakin post-Ahsoka, and more. Personally I'd love it if some of the more pivotal scenes from Revenge of the Sith were animated and thrown in there as well. That would give context to the movie's version of Order 66, and it'd probably be more convincing and heartbreaking to see Clone Wars Anakin fall. Pls Disney, let me have it.

I never noticed how much stormtroopers grunted when they died until seeing that video
It still bugs me how the troopers in Rogue One just run in big mobs straight into enemy fire, the guys at the front don't even bother shooting they may as well just be layers of human shields so the guys at the back can survive long enough to shoot once :v:

Also that basically happened in WW2 during D-Day. [editline]24th April 2017[/editline] If you wanted to know how Thrawn rose through the ranks without having to read the Thrawn novel. Thrawn novel spoilers obviously [video=youtube;I50GnQAiAO4]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I50GnQAiAO4[/video]
I'd be careful of that kind of video, they often sneak in uncanonized legends in with little to no warning.

He did use some art from Legends, but everything he talked about was from the Novel, I can confirm I listened to the Audio book. Star Wars Explained (formerly Star Wars Minute or something) is a great channel.

Wow, so I just learned that Midi-chlorians were not made up for the PT, Lucas had them in mind since the OT but he felt there wasn't enough time to introduce them in the movies. I wonder if people would have felt differently about them if had they been mentioned them in the original film.

It's essentially force IQ which is pretty pointless

A new First Order design showed up in the latest Poe Dameron comic [t]http://i.imgur.com/OxzD6NT.png[/t] [t]http://i.imgur.com/ZJ0O0QD.png[/t]
After a Rebel kamikazed into the Empire's bridge during the Battle of Endor, the engineers saw it fit to move the bridge to the left.
But then they moved it back to the centre of the ship for the Resurgent Class :v: at least it isn't on a tower now [t]http://i.imgur.com/Lft6qRj.png[/t]

Took a look around and didn't see anyone post this. Pretty neat shit. [Media]https://youtu.be/QOrzGsQdrSg[/media]
That new First Order design really gives me some real world Carrier vibes and I love it
FANS CHOICE FIGURE POLL TIME! [url=http://www.starwars.com/news/vote-now-for-the-next-3-75-inch-star-wars-vintage-collection-figure][img]http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/news/images2017a/FanPollLive.jpg[/img][/url] (Click the pic) DISCLAIMER: As opposed to the last two polls where the winners became 6" Black Series figures, this poll is for a figure in the 3 3/4" super-articulated figures like the old days. This is because Hasbro announced at Celebration a few weeks back they'l be bringing back the Vintage Collection range from 2010-2012 where they made the 3 3/4" figures packaged on Kenner-inspired cardbacks. [media]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSjk2gpDpyY[/media] So this is why the poll finalists this time are plain old Palpatine (Hasbro hasn't really done a proper "super articulated" ROTJ vesion of him yet) and two random characters from ROTJ (they were part of the original vintage line and don't have true modern counterparts yet, and collectors want a full set of couterparts to the vintage figures, so...). I'm guessing Aphra will win due to current name recognition and popularity, but who knows at this point. Also, apparently Ben Skywalker (Luke and Mara's child in Legends continuity) was a big "ballot stuffer" character by the people they say got Jania Solo to win last year, but he didn't make it. Don't really mind, I would've wanted Anakin Solo to complete the original Solo children in 3 3/4" scale.
Aphra is winning right now, beating Ahsoka by 4%. I voted for Aphra.
Gonna need more Aphra in my life.
I don't really follow the comics, who is Doctor Aphra?
