    Just found this theory on Youtube about the potential of having Ezra Bridger from "Star Wars Rebels" appearing as a villain on the incoming Episode VIII. There is speculation that it could be the role Benicio del Toro has been cast for.

    Opinions?

    disclosure: i didn't watch the video because i don't want to be subconsciously influenced by the particulars of the theory right now, but i have seen snippets of it elsewhere, so i know the general idea.

    my gut reaction is that i have real mixed feelings about all of this:
    1. i love Del Toro, but i kinda don't want an actor of his stature in a Star Wars movie. it makes me nervous (like with the PT).
    2. i irrationally fear the continuity connection between Rebels and the ST. i know it's already there, but the brat in me resents the feeling of being forced to invest in that universe.
    3. and as a direct result of no. 2, i fear missing important subtext for not being on board, which is uncool. they could self-contain the storyline, but i'd always know there was more out there and i feel like any ensuing discussion would be endlessly divided between those who Rebel and those who don't.
    on the bright side:
    1. Erza or no, if Del Toro comes on as a true villain, maybe we can get Kylo Ren into the Light all the quicker. i'd really be okay with that because i can't stand his or Leia's suffering.

    Same here. I haven't seen TCW or SWR, but I watched last week the episode "A Princess in Lothal" and I sort of enjoyed watching young Leia starting her Rebel career and interacting with the band of Rebels. It was sort of good timing since the very same day the Star Wars # 15 comic came out and it included another story from the Journal of Obi-Wan Kenobi and it talks also about a young Luke so it was sort of endearing. I might start watching the previous material of Rebels just to avoid missing the subtext plotlines like you said.

    My bad, I just saw it in Rebels. I was looking something like that in the Episode VIII forum. Thanks! :)

    Yea I should have put it in episode 8 forum, but since it mostly had to do with Rebels I put it there. Prolly would have been seen by more and more active if I put it with ST stuff lol.

    I've never been a fan of a The Rebels animation since it reminds me Jimmy Beutron A lot but slightly more updated .

    i'm really struggling with this (woe). i want more Star Wars, but i just don't like the backward glancing. i never needed to see Anakin fall and i feel like anything "prequelly" tends to mess with the world as we know it from ANH. if the aesthetics don't match, my brain just rejects it outright ~ hahaha.

    No, No, and Hell No.

    Keep Space Aladdin in the cartoons on the Disney channel where he belongs. Hopefully he'll get killed before the end of the show, anyway.

    Not gonna happen. Dave Filoni has basically said that he's not stepping on the toes of the ST writers unless what he's doing ends up complimenting what they come up with (such as the crossguard lightsaber appearing on Malachor, which Kylo Ren later examines and rebuilds decades later). They're going to leave the show as it is until years from now, at which point the canon has been firmly established, until they start connecting those dots. But for the time being, don't expect any Rebels characters to pop up in the Sequel Trilogy.

    I think a big reason why Ezra wont be a villian is the audience of the show. Rebels is a kids-show. I still think it is a cool starwars-show. But it is a kids-starwars-show. I pesonally cant se the show ending in such a dark way as in Ezra becomes evil. Just because all kids will be dissapointed. They want a happy ending.

    I think Rebels is a very mediocre series and characters in the movies coming from the show is unlikely, but the ages don't make sense in any event.

    What ages don't make sense. Ezra is 14 at the beginning of Rebels and would be 53 during TFA. BDT is 49....so 4 year difference isn't that much.

    Perhaps the ages do match up. Can't see it happening though.
