Dashi is Omi's ancestorWhich might explain Omi's mysterious past and his connection to the Xiaolin-Heylin war.
Jack's hair is actually just orange-redHe dyes it a deeper shade of red so that it seems eviller; which is why Good!Jack's hair is more orange than red.
Rai is the reincarnation of Dashi, and Omi is the reincarnation of Chase YoungOver the course of the series, Raimundo resembles Dashi's character more and more as a brilliant but lazy badass, and Dashi did use attacks that demonstrated a wind theme. Also, only Rai could open the puzzle box, which may show he simply got over being evil but could also mean he was the only one who could use the box to trap Wuya's soul (Jack just released her- a much simpler magical task). Meanwhile, Omi is convinced he is chosen to be the most powerful of the monks and on several occasions did anything it took to become stronger than everyone else. This is like Chase Young when Bean used the same desires to get Chase to drink the Lao Mang Long soup. Chase Young spent season 2 going after Omi because a) he knew that with his former soul Omi would be driven to become a very powerful martial artist, and b) he didn't want his soul to influence him through Omi.
This new Redakai show is a rip off of Xiaolin Showdown.They come in a group to find mystical objects that evil-doers want to have also. A challenge is issued and the terrain changes slightly.
The Bad Future in "Time After Time" wasn't caused by Omi not being there.It was caused by Dojo not being there. Without Dojo, the rest of the team had no way of locating Shen Gong Wu, and thus Jack (using the Shen Gong Wu detector he built) was able to get enough of them to turn the odds in his favor and enslave the rest of the world. Why Dojo decided to travel to the future with Omi even though he would presumably have lived another 80 years anyway is anyone's guess.
Good Jack is what could have happened if Jack's parents actually paid attention to him.He's dressed in a very stereotypical 'rich kid' way, has a more reasonable hair color (relating to the theory above), and generally sounds good-hearted, if a little na´ve and unaware of his surroundings. He didn't offer to fix the Mantaray when it was broken in the Ying-Yang World, even though we all know he would if he could — he never learned how to use mechanics. It stands to reason that with all the money his family has, Jack probably would have turned out something like this had things gone a bit differently.
The group of Dragons that cam before Omi and Co. consisted of Dashi (Wind), Chase Young (Water), Guan (Earth), and Wuya (Fire).Dashi and Chase are easy enough to explain; Dashi is free-spirited, lazy, yet knowledgeable, like Raimundo, and we've already seen the comparisons in character, personality, and such between Chase and Omi that it bears no explanation. Guan has a strong will, able body, and a calm demeanor belying a fierce warrior not unlike Clay. Wuya was most likely a Dragon of Fire, because of how easily she seems to create and manipulate it to her needs, like trapping Jack and Omi in floating rings of fire. Her turn to evil could easily be explained as her being unable to control her rage and fiery temper, unlike Kimiko, and ended up falling to the side of evil all to easily as a result. As to how she can summon Rock creatures, it'd be no far stretch to imagine that the fantastical powers she garnered through her transition to evil allowed her to steal elemental chi, in this case, Guan's, allowing her to manipulate Earth as well as Fire.
Dashi didn't create all the Shen Gong Wu of his own volition.Some of them were created as cans to contain various evil forces. The Shadow of Fear, the Heart of Jong, the Moonstone Locust and the Sapphire Dragon come immediately to mind as Wu that an ostensible good guy wouldn't create, unless he needed to defeat a threat and object magic is his best weapon. Mala Mala Jong was a particularly bad one, which is why he needed multiple cans. Dashi probably hoped that at least some good come of them.
Based on the preview, the new series will be about collecting upgraded versions of the Shen Gong Wu
Chronicles is a rebootI just got that kind of feeling from the preview
Chronicles will be nothing like the "preview."Because that three-minute clip was not a preview. According to Hui herself, it was a work-in-progress clip that was accidentally leaked and has thus gone viral. If this is the preview, then Jack is completely derailed, Chase looks like a girl, and all of the Wu have different names... thus, among other reasons, cue massive Internet Backdraft that even Hui may not be able to curb before the Spring release. Conversely...
If Chronicles is like the "preview"...The dragons will have split up to find more Wu, because according to a French article the Xiaolin Temple has somehow been destroyed. Meanwhile, evil will have matured in the form of Jack Spicer, and Chase Young will be Not So Stoic... and call Wu "doohickies." New and unnecessary characters will be added, with heaping helpings of Character Derailment for and perhaps a Darker and Edgier storyline if they don't Retcon half the episodes. The Fan response will be somewhere between reactions to the animation changes to American Dragon Jake Long and the general reaction to New Coke, with a heaping helping of They Changed It, Now It Sucks.
The preview/WIP of Chronicles is just to test the fan reactionsThey made a short video that had concepts the XS crew are playing with, they are just trying to see what fans like and what they don't like to make a good XS sequel.
Jack Spicer is actually Dr. Drakken's son.They are both wanted be evil geniuses whose ambitions outshined their talent. They both make pretty good robots and they both relied mostly on other people's work the difference being Dr. D steels inventions and Jack steals Shen gong Wu
Jack actually has no idea what his hair color is:"I just have trouble with my reds and browns!"
Wuya and Jack are somehow related, but they may not know itIt explains why the two always come back to each other...Wuya senses a small blood bond between Jack and her.
The new show is a sequelIt'll take place (maybe a year or two) after the original when all the monks villains arrived at their temple.
The new character "Ping Pong" will not be a permanent Xiaolin DragonSupposedly, Ping Pong's desire to become a master dragon causes animosity between him and Omi. Omi is still the main character. As time goes on, Chase Young, or another villain, would convince Ping Pong to make a Face-Heel Turn which, unlike Raimundo's, is permanent.
Jermaine will become a Xiaolin DragonRelated to the above, he may join in Ping Pong's absence and get his own element to control.
Kimiko is not completely Japanese.Her American accent could mean she didn't live in Japan for her entire life. She also has bright blue eyes. We never see her mom, who could very well be white.
There is no future in which Jack Spicer doesn't take over the world.Whether out of intelligence, skill, or dumb luck, Jack is meant to rule the world. I mean Dojo and Omi being gone might have made a difference against the other warriors, but They beat Jack before when it was only one of them, and when he had Sheng Gong Wu, so that shouldn't affect him against the warriors that much, even if he won all the Wu, Chase or Hannibal can beat the Wu easily(except maybe the sphere of yun). So there must just be something about Jack that he managed to rule the world, that is there regardless of whatever the monks or anyone else do, even if he isn't evil, like when he isn't evil he is super annoyingly sweet, so he could take over the world as a "good" well intentioned extremist. So good evil, monks, no monks, regardless of Wuya, Hannibal, or Chase,Jack is meant to rule the world.
