How the fuck do you go to that from this?
>tfw stupid sexy Yaddle is canon and her tight green pussy and ridiculous foot game are also canon
>What kinda depiction u want senpai?
>MY SHIT UP, JUST FUCK.
Seriously, Yoda looks like he's doubled in height.
Not really. The new movie had a proper lightsaber fight. No flips, not jumping, just two people actually trying to kill eachother and lightsabers that had weight and impact. You can keep your cartoon shit
It had untrained plebs flailing around, amidst Marvel quips, funny gestures and cartoon humor. The next episode is going to be full wizardry.
If you're expecting anything else from your mass-produced Disney experience, save yourself the trouble and go somewhere else.
No. ESB, RotJ and TFA had proper lightsaber fights with good, emotional and belivable coreography. ANH had a clumsy, shitty fight coreography-wise, but it was still better than the souless, drawn out, over the top shit from the prequels and cartoons though.
It was pretty funny to watch. Especially after all the trees getting chopped in half, every time a lightsaber struck a person they'd merely get a bit singed.
I'm glad you're a big fan of the flailing and grunting, though. Top comedy, there. It really rounded out the toy commercial called The Force Awakens.
>the toy commercial called The Force Awakens.
I don't know that there is anything in the movie that would make a young me go "SHIT NIGGER I NEED THAT ACTION FIGURE!"
Even the Applebees in Space was pretty meh.
No, you idiot!
THIS is cannon.
No, you idiot!
That's not Huehuehuehuheueheuye
This is Huehuehuehuheueheuye
Most of the major animators stay, and the main guy writing it is the same as well.
Also why change the budget? I assume it's not getting enough views or something, hell I almost never see it on outside of the newest episode and that's it. I don't think Disney understands that TV shows can't be like TFA and rake in money like that, or the fact TCW also had a very slow start too.
Just add fucking Vader more often, just get to him killing the Clones and Ahsoka already.
>Also why change the budget?
Back when they were making TCW, Lucas was closely involved and pumped money into the project.
Now that Disney has taken over and that they're going to be making new movies left and right, they just don't spend a lot of money on animated series.
Rebels takes place between RotS and ANH. Obi Wan mention Vader striking down and killing off remaining jedi (which is the goal emperor and Vader are having right now) so I can see during this series where you see Vader do just that.
DUDE GALACTIC CIVIL WAR ENDED A YEAR AFTER ENDOR
>non Jedi using sabers
This triggers me desu. Finn using Anakin's saber in TFA pissed me off. The only time that shit didn't bother me was in Clone Wars when Pre Visla uses his crazy black lightsaber. At least he was a highly skilled badass Mandalorian who incorporated his other weapons and jetpack, and had presumably practiced with it.
>Another Force-powerful figure from the past makes an appearance, although he looks a lot different than he did in The Clone Wars. Filoni says part of that is to differentiate the characters between shows and movies, but also this is a vision that Ezra experiences, so the animators justified the change by saying Ezra would be picturing the tiny Jedi master through the lens of his own imagination. "A huge influence was the old Kenner action-figure of Yoda," Filoni says. "We stopped short of giving him the orange snake. We highly considered it, because I’ve never seen that orange snake, and I thought, 'We could be the ones to finally put that orange snake in there!'" But in the end, that little snake was too costly to animate for the sake of a little toy nostalgia.
Sad how this show was hyped as OT-like when it's basically become Clone Wars season 7. No one wants that shit, fuck off Filoni.
Hopefully when it gets canceled next year they'll bring in someone who isn't a prequel obsessed George Lucas butt monkey to make the show people actually want.
But Finn using it makes sense. He's a trained member of the elite First Order military, literally raised from birth for military pursuit. Surely there was melee weapons training provided to him.
And I recall a boy on Tatooine who activated a lightsaber and gave it a few swings without having been trained.
Yeah but now we have sithfu
While I like Rebels, I do admit I hate this spinning lightsaber gimmick. From technological standpoint, it does not even compatibly make sense.
Only interesting thing is that only inquistors use them which give a sign uniformity and that they aren't siths.
1, they don't know where he is. Obi-Wan is a hermit, and he's very low on everyone's radar. Ezra and Kanan going on constant raids means that they're being tracked by the Empire.
2, Obi-Wan would kill both of them pretty easily. Inquisitors are roughly Padawan-level in power. A Jedi Knight can easily take care of one, but a Jedi Master and expert duelist like Obi-Wan would wipe the floor with them.
This is Yoda we're talking about, he doesn't get angry.
The OT's when he's bitter. You'd be bitter too if one of your friends killed ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS.
Well, you got me there.
False, next time you see it check Rey during the "run through the little canyon" part.
>lightsabers that had weight
Kylo Ren spends most of the fight with Finn twirling his saber in one hand and swinging it like it's a whip. You're just wrong.
TCW gave her the kind of bitter goodbye that would make her someone nobody wants to talk about in ROTS.
We still haven't seen her meet any OT film characters yet other than Vader, and he's not going to just make small talk about his old padawan to Luke.
They've made it all pretty clean.
I-I'm not ready bros...I'm not ready to watch her die
"Canon" is just a marketing term. The situation now isn't much different than the old EU: this stuff treats the movies as absolute canon, tries to be an internally consistent universe, but will never ever be referenced in any movie. The new canon is the exact same as Legends, just less messy.
The movies are and will always be the only actual canon. Everything else is "canon" in the sense that it treats other books/comics/cartoons/etc. as canon, too.
No screenwriter is ever going to include Ahsoka or Ezra in a movie, so in that sense, all of this stuff is for all intents and purposes not canon.
Because half of the main characters suck and ALL the new villains do too.
As for the crew that don't suck: Hera, despite being awesome, isn't much beyond a pilot, so she has Aquaman Syndrome, Kanan is great but can't carry the show on his own, and Chopper's too one-dimensional to help much.
If this show didn't have movie and TCW characters, it would have no reason for anyone to watch it.
Lucas was spending $1 million dollars per episode to make it look amazing because it was his personal baby. If it wasn't Star Wars it would have been a giant money black hole. As it is, they were definitely sacrificing some of their profit margin.
Disney is just looking to maximize the bottom line.
Maul's been confirmed survived since TCW season 4.
They brought him back in The Clone Wars TV show. His brother 'Savage Opress' rescued him from a junkyard where he had lost his mind over Obi-Wan 'killing him'. Eventually they took over Mandalore, then the Emperor came and killed his brother but kept Maul alive. After that the show was cancelled and Maul's story was briefly continued in 4 comics with no resolution.
The yellow one is his brother and apprentice, Savage Opress.
Sidious was not exactly thrilled to discover Maul's survival 10+ years after the fact. Or the fact that Maul's set himself up as master of a competing Sith pair.
TCW overall had like the same budget as the PT, and that was all coming out of Lucas's pocket
After he sold LFL to Disney, things came back down to earth and Rebels is on the same level as any other internally developed animated TV series. They were never going to give it even a fraction of that budget, especially with the toys not selling and the ratings lower than Disney's stupid tween sitcoms.
If it was given a budget in the ballpark of TCW, given its performance, it probably would've been cancelled in S1.
The Utapau arc story reels have Anakin and Obi-Wan briefly mention her in a way that makes it clear Anakin does NOT like to talk about her.
Anakin briefly forgets she's not his padawan anymore and says he's going to call her to do something for them, then gets PISSED when he remembers.
Savage Oppress is pretty dumb. His most important line is "AAAARRRGGHHH". Honestly though Maul is probably my favourite villain in Star Wars because of this show (next to the almighty Sheev of course). He really was criminally underused in Phantom.
He actually gets real lines and a pretty great performance by Clancy Brown.
Despite being a big hulking brute and a violent psychopath, he's pretty smart.
Not nearly as smart as Maul turns out to be, but smart.
Smart? I don't recall him ever being smart. He basically does whatever people tell him (Maul, Tenzin, Dooku, Ventress, etc.) Hell even while he was on that junk planet he needed to be guided by that stupid snake bastard.
That's actually true, Darth Vader never had an apprentice.
Anakin Skywalker, on the other hand...
>not getting the point of the ANH fight
Pro tip: Neither side was really trying there. Vader wasnt sure he could take obi-wan yet, and obi-wan was just stalling so he could sepuku in front of luke
More specifically, Obi-Wan was stalling so everyone could get to the ship.
By the time they did, he still has Vader in front of him and a squad of stormtroopers in the way, and the only thing keeping the stormtroopers from firing is the fact that they'd risk hitting their boss. If he kills Vader, he dies. If he tries to escape, he dies AND draws attention to the Falcon. So he accepts death to keep everybody distracted.
>this faggot can't tell the difference between Ahsoka Tano and Shaak Ti
Get the fuck off my board
Can't a guy dream anon? Also, last I checked ventress was one of the few who ended the clone wars well. The bitch threw him into the mess and while he got stabbed in the chest,she just ran to the outer rim.
I want to put him on a leash and tell him what to do.
Well, Rebels already has a villain named Agent Kallus.
He's, like, super cruel and callous.
It's just a laser sword you fucking autist. Wave it in the general direction of your enemy, you win. It's not like lightsabers have a mind of their own and do everything they can to fuck up their weilder, anyone remotely competent at anything could use one.
Obviously they're not going to be deflecting lasers bolts or fighting actual force users, but theres nothing stopping them swinging them like baseball bats at stormtroopers. (Like they do in that comic)
Might be, the Story Group guy Pablo Hidalgo said deleted scenes can be canon if other writers want to reference them. Until she is explicitly referred to as being dead, though, it's up in the air.
Why do all CGI tv shows look like utter shit? Someone name some good CGI shows please. Clone Wars and Rebels hurt my eyes.
HOLY SHIT THATS THE FUCKIN FLURRY
>No screenwriter is ever going to include Ahsoka or Ezra in a movie
I can't get over this stupid and just plain rage inducer fact
>caring about what's canon and what's not in a mainstream kids show
You deserve everything that's happening to the lore of your "Ebin sbace obera for nerd xddd". Wouldn't have happened if star wars fans had kept quiet and enjoyed their hobby in silence
Just what is he wearing? Those aren't Jedi robes or his Clone Wars armor. Is that his sneaking suit? And why does he hold the lightsaber like Luke does?
Personally I think Rebels will be something like Agents of SHIELD is to the MCU. It will never be relevant to the movies, but if you really care you can watch it as an addition to them.
There are 2 animated series about the Clone Wars:
- Clone Wars (2003, not canon) by Genndy Tartakowsky
- The Clone Wars (2008-2014, canon)
TCW episodes are not in chronological order (although I guess you could watch them from the first episod to the last without issues).
Here's the actual chronological order if you're interested:
Then you have Rebels which is the new Disney series set between Ep. III and IV. It's also a sequel to TCW.
remember when people thought disney would save star wars?
Why are you mad about this? This is a good thing. These two shows are littered with references to kotor. Clone Wars basically acted as a life raft for several EU characters. Fuckin Delta squad are still canon thanks to that show.
It's obvious they're sneakily trying to salvage whatever they can of kotor. Wouldn't surprise me to see it reintergrated entirely eventually.
i hope they acknowledge kotor and kotor II's existence instead of just take things from them and pretend that it's theirs
i thought it was a mistake that they reintroduced the crossguard hilt, i thought the entire reason why kylo ren had that kind of lightsaber was because it was something he scrounged together, but apparently that was always a thing and we just never saw it because reasons
Looks like shit.
Think about it, with all the money Disney has we could have a series with Ghibli tier animation for each episode running forever.
And yet we get this shitty Lego game tier graphics with shitty cartoon animation and awful writing that makes everyone a jedi.
mfw my biggest post was a yoda shitpost
I don't actually know either, my nephew plays them and he has shitloads of legos he could play with. The Jurassic World one was sort of like Impossible Creatures so I understood the appeal of that one
Just face it, the last good Star Wars movie was in 1983 and the few bits of old EU that were good are non canon now. Disney will run it into the ground even harder than Lucas did.
Check out that ship in the background nigga.
We KoTOR now.
CGI is expensive as fuck.
The last few seasons of TCW were like 1.5 mil an episode which is why the quality was so high compared to rebels.
Disney took one look at that budget and immediately canceled TCW and made rebels much cheaper.
I mean, she was raised to. Her father was setting the stage for the rebellion before she was even born. At this point she's just doing what she's told. She doesn't actually start doing it for herself until the destruction of Alderaan.
They redeemed the blaster saber by making it so you couldn't use the blaster and the sword at the same time.
That shit makes sense anyway. Of course a 14 year old kid would make something that silly
Here's the problem though, why is Ezra the first retarded 14 year old to come up with such a concept? What the fuck were the Jedi doing for the 1000 generations or whatever they existed that not one single guy ever once thought "hey, we should put a blaster on this hilt, then we could shoot cunts"?
And there were shitloads of edgy faggot Jedi in the old EU and none of them ever memed a gunblade knockoff, if the same people who made up amazingly dumb shit like the Sun Crusher and the Vong didn't go that far you know you've hit DBZ fanfic levels of stupid
A gunblade is a sword that uses controlled explosions to add additional shock to a cut at a crucial moment, it's not just a gun strapped to a sword. It doesn't shoot projectiles at all.
It has nothing in common with Ezra's lightsaber in the slightest.
I generally agree with you, but following concept art rather than the actual movies necessarily moves it further away from 'Star Wars' than following the actual movies.
Of course, they based Yoda's look on this toy rather than concept art.
They even wanted to use the snake.
>he doesnt know
>there's a web 2.0 marketing firm who's sole objective is to shit on the OT
>disney knows this is the only way to 'increase' the quality of their flik
If only Hitler had more camps....
Had no idea Haverchuck was in Star Wars
Ezra mostly made it so he could disguise his lightsaber. If you watch the show he uses the blaster mode when they're in public and bystanders could be watching, and then switches to a lightsaber when there's only enemies.
A blaster is a lot lower profile than a lightsaber.
Actually, it's rounded off, so I think it's the Thranta-class from SWTOR.
Which gives me hope we might get the Thunderclap and the Defender in the show and eventually in Xwing TMG. SWTOR sucked as a game but most of their starship concepts were great.
