    To me, Yoda would make a weird cameo in this one, and Maul is presumably dead? Or... perhaps not. When is this new show set? Specifically, I think I don't want Kenobi in this one since you get the impression in ANH that he hasn't been involved with anything Rebel-like before receiving Leia's plea.

    Beyond the characters you listed in the poll, I desperately want to see Biggs Darklighter, perhaps even as a main/recurring character. He's pretty much Luke's idol growing up it seems (at least he has a lot more swagger and maturity than Luke in the retained & cut ANH scenes, and he tells Luke about the Rebellion and all), and I would love to actually see Biggs doing some rebelling prior to him being blown up during the assault on the Death Star (spoiler!!!!).

    A return of Bail Organa would also be awesome!

    Other characters that I think we're quite likely to see are R2-D2 (*waves at @Maximus *) and C3PO. They are very much the heart of SW, well... at least the OT, and can be inserted everywhere rather effortlessly (although I hope that if they ARE included, they get an actual plot to do... the pair has sorely lacked stuff to do in the last few... decades of SW). Similarly, it would be very easy to put Vader in as a cameo every now and again, and I'd be all up in that.

    Talking about easy reprises, it would be fun and interesting to see IG-88 show up in both the Cassian show & The Mandalorian, giving a whole lot of scope to the Galactic Civil War and the criminal elements operating in the wings. I'd also love to see Greedo appear in a side-plot or something.

    Now, IF mo-cap/fake-face tech has advanced far enough since Rogue One (and the Apes series) to do this faster and cheaper, then we might see characters like Tarkin and Leia return once again, not to mention Raymus Antilles*, Jon "Dutch" Vander, Garven "Dave" Dreis, and Antoc Merrick with wingmen and side-kicks; I would love that a whole lot. Similarly, seeing a younger version of one of the Imperial officers -- Veers, Needa, Jerjerrod, etc. -- climbing the Imperial hierarchy prior to being bullied by Vader later in the OT, would be quite cool; possibly even as a recurring bad guy.
    *Actually, Raymus Antilles should probably be played by Tim Beckmann again, instead of production relying on mo-cap. Same goes for Mon Mothma, Jan Dondonna, etc., of course, who'd be better represented by their corresponding established new actors.

    The Ghost crew would be interesting, but I'd more stoked for a live action version of Thrawn, with noghri & Death Trooper henchmen.



    Correction: I've changed my mind but can't change my vote. I don't want Han (he's already embroiled enough in Rebellion business in S:ASWS). And Becket is probably dead at the time of the Cassian show?

    i don't think that's known yet. applying common sense (yes i do have a little :D) then we should expect it to be a small number of years before.. well.. his death.

    the same guy is playing him, so unless they are gonna cgi youth the pants out of him.. i would expect the show to take place maybe 3-4 years before the events of Rogue 1.

    you got a 'great post' for this!! we know that the droids are with the rebellion pre-R1, and so is Cassian.. so it wouldn't be massively difficult to get them in.

    Yeah that's my thinking too. I'm pretty sure the timeline would place the events after those of Solo.

    On the whole, I'd like to see pretty much none of those listed characters appear in the series. Definitely a 'no' on Yoda and Kenobi. They're supposed to be living hidden secret hermit lives. Can we keep them that way please? I personally would rather see nothing of them between the events of ROTS and ANH (although I understand that ship has already been sailed...).

    Having said that... I was never a fan of Maul's 'resurrection' but as that is another ship that has definitely sailed, then along with a few other plot strands from Solo, this could be the series where those get continued. Unless there are other plans...

    That aside, I would have thought that Bail would be a possible, and I imagine we would see Mon Mothma. Maybe even Ackbar.

    The short answer is none of the above as I can’t really see a role for them in a series which is probably going to be about the shadier side of the rebellion.

    Only one that remotely would make sense would be Enfys Nest since she's trying to help kick start the Rebellion.

    If she is still involved with the Rebellion at this point in time then yes I could see her being involved in the shadier side of the rebellion.

    So, looks like there WERE other plans after all - a whole Kenobi series has been announced since I posted that I'd rather see nothing of him between the events of ROTS and ANH. Oh well...

    I love for any of those, but Enfys Nest would be my choice.

    Honestly, PT-era characters are more likely than those listed above imo. Cassian is an ex-Separatist, and there's nothing saying we won't get any flashbacks to his time during the Clone War.

    Yes, the PT and CW characters are more likely than characters of SOLO.


    I think some nice appearances would be:

    - Boba Fett
    Cassian has a dark past, so it's not unlikely that he had some stories with bounty hunters.

    - Clonetroopers
    It could be redeemed and bad ones.

    - Quarsh Panaka
    I actually would love this. This character has quite an interesting story in the current canon.

    I can definitely see Han or any of the Ghost crew members making a cameo appearance (like Chopper did in RO) in this series. I could also see Enfys Nest playing a role and I think there’s a very good chance that we’ll see a live-action Ahsoka at some point down the line, if not in this show. (I don’t think the timeline really lines up with Rebels.)

    Despite this, I have a feeling that other than potential characters like Bail, Mon Mothma, and some of the other “spies” and “saboteurs” from Rogue One, we won’t be seeing too many other pre-existing characters in this show, unless they do end up incorporating Enfys Nest and the Cloud Riders as part of the grittier side of the Rebellion in this series. Really, I just want this show to heavily focus on Cassian and K2’s characters, so that I may end up caring more about them whenever I watch Rogue One in the future. I could do without a bunch of cool but unnecessary cameos.

    This visual may help a bit with the character speculation:

    I should probably get around to watching Rebels..... seems like a prime opportunity for some live-action cameos!

    Yep, given the fleeting appearance of The Ghost and Chopper in Rogue One and the "Syndulla" tannoy call, seeing a live action appearance of Hera at least would be well placed.

    Enfys Nest only one that would make sense to me. However, I certainly wouldn't be opposed to any listed if the story is good and executed well.

    If there was an option for "Other," I would have selected it because I'd like to see Bail Organa and Mon Mothma make regular appearances in this show.
