It's worth noting that TCW and Rebels showrunner Dave Filoni has said that he had Darth Bane appear in the final arc of Clone Wars specially so he'd still be canon in the new Disney continuity. Darth Bane and Darth Raven from the Kotor games were originally going to cameo in the final episode of the Mortis trilogy (they even had character models made) but George Lucas vetoed it because it didn't fit with his at-the-time position on how Force Ghosts worked. So it's entirely possible that KOTOR is going to get some lip service here.

Just saw the Season 2 Finale and, I gotta say, that was some gripping TV.

Anyone following this thread knows I'm a little weary of the "Jedi-focus" of Star Wars "Rebels".  While it make sense in TCW, I would have rathered Rebels be focused on the Empire vs the Rebellion.  I understand the inclusion, but didn't think it should be a focus.

Quite enjoyed it, just like you guys I can't wait for season 3. I want a trailer and I want it soon.

Gotta love the irony that the show got better after they ditched Greg Weisman.

That was a really interesting video.  It highlighted why season 2 was much of an improvement over season 1.  It expanded the galaxy.  On season 1,  all episodes seemed to end back on Lothal.  In season 2, we see several new locations with each character getting their stories expanded, even the villains.

Thats a bit of the larger universe discussion-I don't think The Force was the problem,more that both the Jedi and the Sith take it to the extremes.Something so complicated cant be just black and white,yet its either getting rid of all emotions or being a psycho.Neither of those really sound like reasonable approaches.Thats just my theory.

Yeah, it is a larger universe issue, not specific to Rebels, but they seem to be going down a well-trod path.

Well,it wasn't pointless in the original canon,the reboot pretty much invalidated everything heroes did anyway,but I assume because there will probably be a New Jedi Order in Star Wars episode 13 or so.Everything Disney did goes along a way-trod path.

But even in the old EU, how many of Luke's students went evil?  Half?  It feels like half.

No, no, pre Yuzhon Vong (sp?), only, like two, maybe, out of dozens and dozens.  There's the insufferable Kyp Durron; was there anyone else?

A quick perusal of Wookiepedia gave me Brakiss, Kueller, and Dal Konur as well, whoever any of them are.  I personally bailed on the EU in the relatively early days.  My previous post was (half)joking; but it does seem like the 'fall into evil' rate for jedi, especially in the old EU, was exceedingly high.  Given the consequences, you have to wonder if having good jedi are worth all the bad ones/sith that crop up.

To get back on topic,Ezra is pretty much Skywalker-lite,so no suprise that he gets a similar story.
Does anyone else think Kanans mask looks a bit goofy?

So far season 3 has been on par with season 2, as in some episodes are great (Darth Maul) others meh. The Ryloth episode was an interesting example. The main Ryloth plot was just alright but Thrawn's appearance in it was fantastic! I only read the first of the Thrawn novels but even I can tell they're doing a great job nailing his character.

It's funny, I haven't read Thrawn's character in 20 years, but from what I remember of him, they got him true.

Yep. Just like last season of Rebels, I've come to accept that, especially for the middle chunk of a season. Last year it was stuff like the space whales, this year it's smuggling/heist stuff with Hondo and fighter pilots and the like. Next episode is, I guessing, an Agent Kalus episode, based on the vague description I read. The one after that will about Darth Maul's/Ezra's vision, so I imagine that will be quite a big better.
