Another way of looking at it: Ezra was born on the day Palpatine proclaimed himself emperor so Ezra is only 2 days older than Luke & Leia.
That's what I thought. We've seen Leia, and she was about 15 when she first appeared.

The only reasoning they could make is that it was a flashback on how Obi-Wan has overlooked Luke since he was a kid but if so it wasn't made clear.

They're right in that it's how fights generally went in classic samurai movies (and Lucas was originally influenced by Akira Kurasawa). But it's a let-down since that's not how light saber fights have ever been done in Star Wars media. When a fight is built up to, there are expectations from what we've seen before.

Re: Star Wars: Rebels (Disney XD) -- Season 3 Discussion Thread

Bendu unleashing hell on Empire and Rebels both was pretty cool. I'm a little surprised none of the bigger characters died, but at least now there's still a possibility of more Zeb/Kallus bromance next season.

They don't really kill people on this show though. The fact that Kallus escaped unscathed after being caught was pretty ridiculous. But overall I enjoyed the finale.

Re: Star Wars: Rebels (Disney XD) -- Season 3 Discussion Thread

So after three seasons, have people enjoyed Rebels more or less than Clone Wars? I only watch Rebels sporadically so I can't answer.

Re: Star Wars: Rebels (Disney XD) -- Season 3 Discussion Thread

The Maul/Kenobi fight was perfect.

First, Kenobi knew he was on the planet, and Maul was obviously weakened from looking in the desert for him for some time.

Kenobi was also well prepared for the fight. Watch what he does with his forms. He opens up with his classic style and then is shown to move his arms back to the same form Qui-gon used. This prompted Maul to quickly try and hit him in the head with the middle of his saber, the same way he defeated Qui-Gon. Kenobi was expecting it and slashed him right down the middle.

I'd say about the same. Rebels does have a little bit of a lead due to it being in the OT era. You also get the advantage of not knowing the fate of pretty much all the characters. With Clone Wars, you know nothing could really happen to most of the characters since they were alive during ROTS.

Re: Star Wars: Rebels (Disney XD) -- Season 3 Discussion Thread

I still like Clone Wars more than Rebels but it's getting closer. Both have had great episodes but it feels like Rebels has had more clunkers.

Re: Star Wars: Rebels (Disney XD) -- Season 3 Discussion Thread

Both Clones and Rebels were hit or miss for me -- both had some surprisingly good storylines and both had some real stinkers.

Clones has the upper hand on animation quality.

Their both very inconsistent. I liked Clone Wars better personally. Its best episodes were really good and reached a level that Rebels has yet to get to.

CW had better animation with each passing season. CW also had a stronger cast of characters from the actual movies.

"Twin Suns" gave me goose-bumps.

Re: Star Wars: Rebels (Disney XD) -- Season 3 Discussion Thread

Rebels has been fun but inconsistent. I wonder if they'll relaunch with a series set in the three years between episodes 4 and 5. There's got to be some interesting stories there.

At the panel, they did mention that the animation isn't ending, but they don't want to announce anything while Rebels still has a full season ahead. The comics are already doing the timeline between 4 and 5, so I would think it would have to be a much longer time gap a la prequel era, post-jedi, old republic ...

I would like to see a cartoon series with the OT characters. The voice talent of the people that did the radio show last night "smuggler's revenge" (most of them are the animation voice actors) did great OT characters and would hope that is a taste of something to come.

I'd sell a kidney to see animated adaptations of stories like Dark Empire (tweaked to fit in the new canon, of course).
