    So in the book A New Dawn we hear Kanan's thoughts on how hot he thinks Hera is, and her lips, and voice, and hips, and head tails, and blah blah blah.

    In Rebels they seem like a married couple who has been divorced. Like they still care for eachother, but they're not hooking up after a long day of rebelling anymore but they want to, if those darn kids (Zeb, Chopper, and the lover sibs Ezra and Sabine) would give them privacy.

    Any thoughts or opinions on this?

    Well, haven't read the book, but I could understand his thoughts. As far as a cartoon goes, she's got a "conservative hot" thing going on, and aren't the Twi'lek chicks always being ogled by males? They seem to appear anywhere that a stripper-like role is required.

    There does seem to be a bit of tension, though I wonder how accurate what we are seeing would be, since this is a bit more directed towards kids than TCW was. Even in TCW, the tension between Satine and Obi-Wan was pretty subtle for the most part. The tension between Anakin and Padme was more visible, but I think only because it formed a huge foundation of the PT.

    Some of the "tension" we might be misconstruing as such, when really it's each of them trying to respect their "areas of expertise" (Hera with the ship/flying, Kanan with ground operations) but being at odds on strategy from time to time.

    I have not read this book A New Dawn, so apologies if this is uninformed.

    But I would imagine they are trying to mimic the love/hate romance between everyone's favorite princess and a certain nerf herder.

    More interesting to note is Kanan and Ezra's relationship. Were Ezra of age (not sure how old he is on Rebels, but let's say when he hits 21) I could definitely see potential in a romance between him and Kanan.

    It's a lot like how the classic 90's TV series, Boy Meets World, appears to be the story of Cory and Topanga's burgeoning relationship. Many people, however, have speculated that the true romance of the show involved Cory and his best friend Shawn. The pair of bros could have easily been written as best friends who discover passionate love for one another.

    (I believe there's even an episode wherein Shawn playfully crossdresses... it's played up as a gag, but you can definitely see Shawn being open to exploring his sexuality.) Given the climate and the network at the time (ABC), obviously, the Topanga route was the safer choice.

    TL;DR Kanan and Ezra as a couple would be more interesting and groundbreaking.

    Kanan is a patient man.

    P.S. For 15, Ezra seems prepubescent and asexual. Where are the hormones, Disney? Most 15-year olds that I have seen (not that I am watching or anything!) already have facial hair and girlfriends... sometimes even girlfriends with facial hair. I am OVER the wide-eyed farmboy bit. It worked for Luke because he was a LITERAL farmboy. But Ezra too? Get with the times, Disney! He should not be so pansy-assed. Padawan does not have to mean pansy or patsy.

    He likes boobs too much though.. and head tails.

    Besides, Ezra has a crush on his "sister" Sabine.

    There is no way these two are hooking up unless Ezra force-chokes Sabine unconscious first.

    As for Kanan and Hera they are totally banging any time the others are off the ship.

    Is it just me or does Ezra seem about as cool as Zaboo from "The Guild" compared to Sabine there?

    xD

    Pay attention kids. ReBoot was TCW and Rebels level of cutting edge tv CGI back when we were in our 20s.

    And when we were kids this was the revolutionary CGI animation of it's day. We'd see this and easily picture TCW in our mind's eye and we would say imagine some day! it's going to look like that! no way! its there -now- haha

    Well, that CGI just doesn't hold up too well, I remember seeing a YouTube clip of if. First and second seasons of TCW look a bit aged now, but Season 3 onward to me seems like it will last a really long time as good quality. I think more than the actual CGI, movement is very fluid, and that makes it last much longer for me.

    I think Hera and Kanaan are keeping it on the down low. She knows too much about his business. He is spilling his guts to her very vulnerable ways. They have an old married couple feel to them I just think they are hiding. It will be a joke when they get caught. Everyone but Zeb will know they are together.

    Ezra seems very much a 15 year old. I think he and Sabine will eventually get closer. After at least one other guy appears as a romantic interest of Sabine for Ezra to be jealous of.

    I think it's obvious Sabine and Ezra are gonna get together, but how is what's important. Maybe she goes into statis for a few years and Ezra is suddenly appealing to her LOL

    Yeah, but I've seen it more of a concern in a sisterly way. Now it could be taken the other way, but Sabine is a very direct character, which is good :D

    Sabine is only 16 but talks down to Ezra. I wish they would do a scene where Kanan sends Ezra to his quarters to cool off and meditate and Sabine cuts into him like she did in a recent episode, then Hera sends Sabine to her quarters.. or makes her go clean the power converters or something. She's a child too!

    And instead of being snappy to her like Sabine can be to him sometimes, I hope Ezra plays it cool. The galaxy always could do with another scoundrel, and scoundrel Jedi sounds pretty decent :D

    i know its not a new concept... star trek did it years ago. but its really interspersing how Disney is willing to portray an inter-species romance.
