    That looks quite likely, yes. :)

    Well with SDCC not far away it looks like we will definitely be getting some type of content shown to us. I know the focus will be on the 10 year anniversary of TCW, but would definitely be cool to see a trailer for this.

    My initial thought from this faded, blurry photo is that, unfortunately, they are using cell-shading. While the yellow ship, stormtroopers, and main guy character look fine, check out the pale-skinned guy to the left of the green alien. That well-defined shadow across his cheek/chin. This detail implies that these characters are 3D models, but “painted over” to look flatter. (Either that or it’s true hand-drawn anime, but I doubt it.) Hopefully, Filoni & Co can pull off a great visual look, but I have never seen cell shading that didn’t look cheap. I would have preferred a hand drawn animation show, like Forces of Destiny (but with a bigger budget.)
    Also, does anybody else think the kid in the foreground (with the green-highlights on his jacket) look like Ben 10?

    Cel-shading is not necessarily a problem. The anime from my video, Knights of Sidonia, was made in 2014 and it looks very good. The question is - can Filoni's people pull this off? The most likely answer is - the fighters and backgrounds will look good, but the people will... need some getting used to.

    I wish I could see your video. Perhaps good-quality cell-shading will change my mind about it. It’s not that Disney doesn’t have the technology to make it look right. I’m more worried the budget will be quite small and corners will be cut. Rebels, while still a good show, did look a bit cheap during the first couple seasons.

    I like everything except the new main character. Another Ezra-like kid, probably with similar viewings about the powah of friendship and how the Force rocks!

    Also, another secondary non-seen before species of alien. It feels like the main team of Rebels.

    Anyway, cool to see Phasma

    Just go to Youtube and type "Knights of Sidonia". You'll see. Maybe there's something newer and better, but I'm currently way behind on anime.

    Looks like it going to be mainly about a group of teenagers (all humans except for one alien plus BB-8), with Poe as their leader. Sounds like Rebels all over again.

    How are they going to make this interesting?

    With plot and conflict, perhaps? With character interaction and development, tension and stakes; you know, with story. Also, we're likely to see tons of new characters not on the posters, and locations, and vehicles, and stuff in general.

    If they make it like new Ducktales, Tangled series or Gravity Falls, i. e. make each season have an overarching plot about something, with each episode focusing on a specfic character and a lesson they have to learn, like "it's okay to have bad luck" or "you don't need a special item to be special," I will be more than happy. The best cartoons are essentially morality tales, so if the writers of Resistance remember this aspect, we should get a decent show.

    I just hope that inflated headed Star Wars fans don't get bent out of shape about a cartoon aimed at an audience of children don't act like that themselves when it doesn't go the way they plan.

    i'm am so down for this if it's that well written.
    i'm a little concerned about the characters being too plucky and obnoxious if it's geared for this younger age group, but hopefully they will temper that by avoiding stereotypes and stock development. with just the right amount of peril and edge, this could be fun and lighthearted, but still have great stakes!

    and i'll watch this for Poe no matter what anyway. XD

    Well, I guess this series won't be for me then. After The Clone Wars, I guess I'm spoiled in terms of how kids shows can be able to attract adult audiences. Rebels was only a kids show, so that didn't attract me.

    I'm a bit torn about this. I have no love of the ST era, but I like Filoni and given that he was involved in Avatar going with Anime style makes sense, it could be very stylish. I'd prefer Filoni doing a series based in the Old Republic. So I'll likely give it a try but I'm not excited.

    Well now that comic con is over and the focus for Lucasfilm is no longer getting The Clone Wars season 7 announcement out to the public, I wonder when we will finally get some sort of trailer for this especially since we are getting closer to the Fall premiere.

    Yes finally at last some news hopefully the U.K will get it at about the same time as Germany. I’m going to give this series a chance as I wasn’t blown away by Rebels at first but the series really grew on me.
