Ooo...just read an article on it. Perhaps we will see the early days of the Rebellion fighting the Empire on screen, yay have been waiting for that! Maybe show some Jedi being hunted by Darth Vader too on screen, rather then just the comics/novels now.

Although the GCW has been focused to death, I hoping this new series ties in with the Purge comics a bit.

Though I hope TCW somehow fits in its last episode right before Ep 3 so it isn't as much of a jumped in time.

The whole 'Between Ep 3 and 4" might go into Galan Marek I'm hoping - a lot of hate for him by those who only played the game, but for those that read the books, he is actually "normal" as far as power goes.

I can only hope for it doesn't pull what the TCW pulled and dumped on already good stories. But considering the period between Ep III and IV is pretty much an open canvas it will be interesting to see.

Of course he is normal, games exaggerate things lol. Kyle Katarn for example, he is normal, Jaden Korr normal...and so on so forth. Though I am just happy that the series will focus on the early days of the Rebels, I always wanted to see how the Rebels did during the early days, what equipment they had, what battles they were in and so forth.

Also maybe it'll make Stormtroopers better, given they won't be shooting at protagonists all the time so they should be shown as elite of the elite. Maybe have an episode or two focus on a Stormtrooper squad...

Ooo or maybe Imperial Guardsmen, Kir Kanos is a boss character would be neat to see some of him. Or maybe show some Spec-ops Rebel/Imperial forces IE: Storm Commandos, Rebel Infiltrators and the like.

I feel so giddy now, as I have so many thoughts on this!

Don't get too excited though.

You're aiming yourself for disappointment haha - forgot who exactly it was, but one of the people mentioned in the video on that article has a track record of having anything he's involved with canceled after 2 seasons haha.

But yeah, I flat out knew how the game was for laughs and book was for the real story, but you see people screaming like Galan was the worst thing to hit Star Wars since the Ep 1 version of Jar Jar.

================

I'm interested to see how the concept art for the OT will be implemented into SW:R, we saw tie fighters are going to be in it obviously already.

Yes...must keep a level head and not get over hyped. I just really have wanted to see some early GCW action. XD

Oh, oh another thought that would be awesome! They could have the Clone Rebellion on Kamino, and we see the Empire come in and take em all out...would be an interesting throwback to BF 2.

Well at least Dave Filoni will be involved.
