Star Wars Rebels

Interesting turn of events, and quite frankly, I'm glad to see Filoni involved.

Perhaps an older Ahsoka Tano will appear in this series.

I personally hope they try to take a more series tone with the series, but some how the doubt of that eats away more than the Jar Jar Binks episodes of Clone Wars ever could. The Disney ownership is giving us new movies, the partnership with EA will give us new games; the next couple of years will determine whether or not we actually wanted any of it.

Whoa.

Eh, they sprung the droids way too early IMO. But I guess those toys gotta sell!

Space Aladdin still annoys me, but I like the way Zeb's backstory was at least given a nod. I hope it becomes more prominent, as I expect they will be seeing Kallus a fair bit more.

And Kallus was actually competent... actually, he's more menacing than Grievous ever was after the Tartakovsky cartoon finished (I'm including ROTS and BF2).

RotS Grievous wasn't much more menacing than he was in TCW. I give him a villain rating of "Elmer Fudd."

I don't know who else saw it besides myself and Iso, so I'll try not to spoil.

But there's a moment where Kallus is challenged when he's knocked down by an explosion... and just starts laughing maniacally. And far from being silly, it's--well, to me, it was badass--but to a kid it could be genuinely scary. Then he gets up and proceeds to beat seven kinds of snot out of the member of the crew that challenged him, even as he goads and taunts and further enrages him or her.

Noonian Soong was Indian apparently. Which implies that Arik Soong was Indian apparently. And Trayvis actually looks more Indian than either Soong.

Naming your character Noonian Soong and saying he isn't Indian is like naming your character Juan Sanchez and saying he isn't Latino. On the other hand, I don't think Zaeed Massani is an Arab, either.

The Inquisitor
Yeah, the Dragon Age Keep went into open beta today. It was actually pretty cool; didn't feel like a quiz at all, which was how the description sounded. I think I'm going to name my Dalish mage Inquisitor Aoife, despite Alix Wilton Regan's voice making me want to name her Goal. I wish ME had a Keep. Oh, we're not talking about Dragon Age: Inquisition?

I love Ms. Wilton Regan. But the Star Wars one is as good as her (at least, almost).

Seriously, this was a good one. And I really like the two main antagonists; they're not like SW villains at all. To borrow a phrase, both Kallus and the Inquisitor can certainly pour piss out of a boot without printed instructions on the heel. <_<

They can also provide wonderfully effective--and I daresay, engaging--adversaries to our heroes, who are themselves growing quite interesting. I even found myself calling her "Sabine" instead of "Mando Dash" or "Rainbow Fett." >_>



It's like Dave Filoni figured out how to direct people. Or they just got good voice actors instead of speech-to-text robots. Or maybe it's because, even though we know the characters will survive their predicament, we don't actually know it. We don't see them several years down the line in a poorly-acted film... so anything, theoretically, could happen.

Also, a wonderful and deliciously dark joke (just to not gush too much, allow me to interrupt with two negatives: Stormtroopers staring at grenades landing near them is getting old, and Brent Spiner needed much, much more airtime), with the news soundbyte of "...marking another successful planetary liberation, utilizing the Base Delta Zero initiative."

If my only knowledge of her were Traynor, I'd be inclined to say she was too nice for the role, but her performance as Goal changed my mine. Nice to see her get some leading roles; so far she's had six roles in DA but only one was in any way memorable and she had about five lines.

I don't think they're adding any characters in Act 2, but I think Regan would make a great addition to the cast of Broken Age. It already has Jennifer Hale, Grey DeLisle, Cree Summer...Wil Wheaton...Elijah Wood who miraculously actually gives a good performance...

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how macabre and dark Monday's episode was? Aside from the flagrant deaths we're used to (stormtroopers), so many people have worried that Rebels would be Disneyfied to the point of bowdlerizing any dark themes in the show. Yet astral projection of the corpsical variety. That surprised me.
