    What are everyone's thoughts on exactly when this series will start (....and end)? See the timeline below, it is squarely in "Rebels" timeline before R1/ANH....but just how far before? a couple years, or will this series run right up against R1?

    Excuse my ignorance but are there any books in this timeframe, i.e. 4-5 years before R1/ANH? Is there any existing canon covering the actual exact origin of the Rebellion?

    I also believe it is likely to be within the Rebels timeline. In terms of plot, I see it more like a spy-thriller. I have seen the ugly actions the Rebellion has found necessary to enact alluded to in Rogue One and with the whole 12A rating (bbfc equiv of PG-13), there is only so much that can be shown.

    Of note is that a lot of them seem to be between Revenge of The Sith and A New Hope. Personally, it would be refreshing to see something between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back or The Empire Strikes Back and Return of The Jedi.

    Here is my fear:

    The Cassian show, which has been described as a James Bond-style “spy and espionage” show, will be loaded with Rebel scum sneaking aboard Star Destroyers. That is the most over-used trope since ANH. It worked in ANH and Rogue One because I considered those characters really lucky. But when “good guys” start cosplaying as stormtroopers in Rebels and The Last Jedi, I feel like the Empire/First Order should have strengthened their own security to prevent sneak-ins.

    I actually would have wished for it to take place/at least start during one of the PT movies, running concurrently with it before jumping forward to R1/ANH. I think that, at least right now, it looks like a lot of the unveiled content is surrounding the OT only within a few years give or take.

    As far as I know, no child actor was cast in the Cassian show, so it’s probably unlikely it will take place in the Prequel era (aka, his childhood.) Obviously, it can’t take place after Rogue One, so I’m guessing it’s during the time of Solo. These are probably little adventures of the Rebel Alliance and their dealings with the Empire; it will just happen to star Cassian Andor in it.
