[up][up] Matt Michnovetz has revealed that this and the Sifo-Dyas mystery are the same arc.

Anyway, yeah, that clip was fun and exciting, and what is apparently Yoda's starfighter looked cool. Definitely interested to see what this journey will unfold - perhaps these could be the so-called Mortis-esque episodes we keep hearing about?

[up] "Good, gooood" as Palpatine would say. This Yoda/Plo Koon/Sifo-Dyas arc is going to be packed... and its usually the packed arcs that are the best.
Sony fan here.
[up] Except when they're overpacked, like the Maul-Death Watch trilogy. Not that it was bad, but it felt way too rushed for me. But this one does look promising so far. I wonder why was Yoda in the hospital wing? Is it because his age is catching up to him? He didn't seem to be injured or ill...
The Fastest Man Alive
I doubt it's that, seeing as he's yet to have his duel with Darth Sidious in the senate chamber.

Everybody's Aunt
A duel he pretty much ended up losing.
"unnoun" has three "n"s and zero capital letters!
The Fastest Man Alive
That duel is the single greatest Force battle in the movies, and Yoda holds his own for a long time, including escaping alive. If that's him with his age catching up to him, then he really doesn't need bed rest.
[up] wild mass guess And what if he was able to perform like that only because his doctors regularly ordered him to bedrest? Also who knows what was he like in his prime, some threehundred years ago? It's possible that his performance against Sidious was pathetic compared to what he would've been able to do if he was just "a bit" younger.
The Fastest Man Alive
I dunno. I feel like "He's getting old" is a flimsy way to kickstart a plot. There's something more going on.
The Fastest Man Alive
Star Wars: Rebels!

Takes place between Episodes III and IV, produced by Simon Kinsberg, Dave Filoni, and Greg Weisman(!), and also featuring art director Kilian Plunkett and CG supervisor Joel Aron from TCW.

I'm seeing what I can do about folding the new topic for the series into this one, since I expect this one will die, otherwise.

I am one with the Force and the Force is with me

Dave Filoni worked on ATLA and a bunch of other shows, and Greg Weisman too?! This is gonna be awesome.
Minutes away but miles apart.
The Fastest Man Alive
Watch the video. Filoni specifically calls out Gargoyles as Disney's first action-adventure series, and an example of what Weisman brings to the table.

Simon Kinberg is actually writing the one-hour pilot (between, I assume, bouts of working on the new trilogy), which will air on Disney Channel in fall 2014. The series will move to Disney XD for its proper run.

Also, because it takes place before the original movies, the ship designs all have to be a little different from what we see in the movies. So what inspires their new (old) designs? Just the original art by Ralph Mc Quarrie!

Okay, okay, this sounds mind-blowingly awesome by all possible angles and I already congratulate Disney and the entire staff for this, but if you know me at all, you know I have precisely one thing to say: RAHM KOTA. Rebellion times! His era!

The Fastest Man Alive
I've already gone over why that probably isn't going to happen.
1714 Gaon20th May 2013 11:26:12 AM from Grim Up North , Relationship Status: Above such petty unnecessities
I'm fully aware. But a man can dream.
The Fastest Man Alive
So seeing as the series only takes place a couple years after the end of TCW, what do you think the odds are that we'll see some of the stories that we were originally going to see in Season 6 in Rebels? And obviously I mean stuff that transfers easily, like the Cad Bane/Boba Fett arc.

I was thinking the same thing - I look forward to whatever Rebels will be like, but it would be great if we got to see the fates of some characters in this series that won't be tied up in the bonus episodes.
The Fastest Man Alive
It sounds like it's still very early in the span between Episodes III and IV, to the point that the Purge is still going on. Anything that does not directly tie into the Clone Wars can probably be moved to the new series.
The Fastest Man Alive
Leeland Chee posted what seems to be his last Clone Wars chronology. There's a book coming out in a couple days that does the exact same thing as he was doing.

Here's the full breakdown of the first two seasons, with a couple glaring omissions.

  • Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
  • Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
  • "Cat and Mouse" (Season 2, Episode 16)
  • "The Hidden Enemy" (Season 1, Episode 16)
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars
  • "Clone Cadets" (Season 3, Episode 1)
  • "Supply Lines" (Season 3, Episode 3)
  • "Ambush" (Season 1, Episode 1)
  • "Rising Malevolence" (Season 1, Episode 2)
  • "Shadow of Malevolence" (Season 1, Episode 3)
  • "Destroy Malevolence" (Season 1, Episode 4)
  • "Rookies" (Season 1, Episode 5)
  • "Downfall of a Droid" (Season 1, Episode 6)
  • "Duel of the Droids" (Season 1, Episode 7)
  • "Bombad Jedi" (Season 1, Episode 8)
  • "Cloak of Darkness" (Season 1, Episode 9)
  • "Lair of Grievous" (Season 1, Episode 10)
  • "Dooku Captured" (Season 1, Episode 11)
  • "The Gungan General" (Season 1, Episode 12)
  • "Jedi Crash" (Season 1, Episode 13)
  • "Defenders of Peace" (Season 1, Episode 14)
  • "Trespass" (Season 1, Episode 15)
  • "Blue Shadow Virus" (Season 1, Episode 17)
  • "Mystery of a Thousand Moons" (Season 1, Episode 18)
  • "Storm Over Ryloth" (Season 1, Episode 19)
  • "Innocents of Ryloth" (Season 1, Episode 20)
  • "Liberty on Ryloth" (Season 1, Episode 21)
  • "Holocron Heist" (Season 2, Episode 1)
  • "Cargo of Doom" (Season 2, Episode 2)
  • "Children of the Force" (Season 2, Episode 3)
  • "Bounty Hunters" (Season 2, Episode 17)
  • "The Zillo Beast" (Season 2, Episode 18)
  • "The Zillo Beast Strikes Back" (Season 2, Episode 19)
  • "Senate Spy" (Season 2, Episode 4)
  • "Landing at Point Rain" (Season 2, Episode 5)
  • "Weapons Factory" (Season 2, Episode 6)
  • "Legacy of Terror" (Season 2, Episode 7)
  • "Brain Invaders" (Season 2, Episode 8)
  • "Grievous Intrigue" (Season 2, Episode 9)
  • "The Deserter" (Season 2, Episode 10)
  • "Lightsaber Lost" (Season 2, Episode 11)
  • "The Mandalore Plot" (Season 2, Episode 12)
  • "Voyage of Temptation" (Season 2, Episode 13)
  • "Duchess of Mandalore" (Season 2, Episode 14)
  • "Death Trap" (Season 2, Episode 20)
  • "R2 Come Home" (Season 2, Episode 21)
  • "Lethal Trackdown" (Season 2, Episode 22)

Each of the first two seasons is missing only a single episode. "Hostage Crisis" for Season 1, and "Senate Murders" for Season 2. Other than these two, and the two episodes that are already covered, I have a feeling that Season 3 progresses more or less in order, and Seasons 4 and 5 are completely linear.

Agreed, except for Revival airing before the Young Jedi arc.
Who else thinks the 2 Nightsister elders are better Force-users than Yoda and pre-dying Darth Sidious(Sidious hasn't used any abilities aside from Telekenisis and Sith Lightning before dying)?
1721 Tyrannotitan2nd Jun 2013 03:21:26 AM , Relationship Status: THIS CONCEPT OF 'WUV' CONFUSES AND INFURIATES US!
Arguably they could be, though Nightsisters use the force in a very different way to Jedi and Sith. The ones are even more advanced with their force usage, though that is to be expected seeing as they are essentially Physical Gods.
Well since both the Jedi and the Sith are very dogmatic sects, it can be expected that they'd be far less creative in the ways they use the Force, than someone who's more along the mythical-magical line of thinking about it. Does that make them better? Not really, seeing how easily Grievous killed Daka, and forced Talzin to retreat, while he had serious trouble fending off Ventress, and would've been utterly stomped by Yoda or Sidious. BTW it's explained rather neatly in the Book of Sith. I've dowloaded and read it last week.

Jedi and Sith are better fighters while Daka and the Nightsisters are better Force-users(Mother Talzin does have one advantage over Jedi and Sith and that's her Force Bubble which can be used with Force Lightning thus having the ultimate attack and defense)
The Fastest Man Alive
In "Restraint" (the new short story at the end of the 2011 reissue of Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter) Talzin has trouble using her magic in a space station, because it's such an artificial environment. So that's another weakness the Nightsisters have.
Nightsisters associate their power with nature and Dathomir and as such their belief system weakens them in artificial inviroments.

How dangerous would an Force-using empire be if it had the abilites of the Witches of Dathomir without the weakening in artificial enviroments plus the Lightsaber skills of the Jedi. Would they be more dangerous then the Galactic Empire?
