    That is literally the argument we used to hear against Rebels, now including it as a positive example.

    I mean, I can't complain. Rebels was great. But maybe, given the medium, we can expect that this more kid-friendly seeming show will eventually mature into something we can all appreciate.

    After all, the exact thing happened with Rebels and the Clone Wars.

    I really hope this follows the same path as the other two. If this show starts childish but evolves by the end of the first season ten I'll be happy. I'm just worried about some of the slapsticky feel but as I originally said this could just be the trailer editing.

    I'm really digging the look and the tone! That, combined with the era makes this really stand apart from Rebels and TCW. And it's so COLORFUL!

    I'm in!

    I think if you go back to Clone Wars and Rebels the early the season the younger the audience is geared toward. Seems LucasFilm deliberately goes after a younger crowd and have the show grow with the kids. That doesn't mean that throughout every season their will be stuff for all of us. I am excited for it and it looks beautiful.

    Since this is a kid show, why is it airing at 10? Hell, I'm not even up at 10.... it feels like they're shooting themselves in the foot already when it comes to ratings.

    Eh, the animation looks like it’s from a Pixar mockbuster. I’ll watch I guess, but I’m not counting down the days or anything.

    And why on earth are they premiering this thing at 10 at night?

    I think it looks amazing.

    I’ve been looking forward to it since we saw the first images and they explained how it would look.. so no shock that I’m still dangerously over hyped.

    The style isn’t for everyone, but hey.. it’s still Star Wars !!

    :)

    Looks like alot of fun.

    Definitely looks more kid-centric than previous shows, though I suppose Rebels did at first, too.

    But with the streaming service on the way and Clone Wars/Favreau's series coming, I get the sense that this show will be more kids-focused and less canon-heavy than even Rebels was. Perhaps now that Disney has another outlet for the adult fans, they feel less obligated to appeal to them on the Disney channel show?

    Exactly how the style struck me. The setting looks anime and the characters kind of traditional disney. I liked Clone Wars better than Rebels because it had better characters and a more dynamic setting. I'm more invested in the time between the PT and the OT than I am the time before the ST so to start with this series is at a disadvantage to me. Poe and BB8 have no draw power and the new main character doesn't look promising. It looks like a case of diminishing returns.

    I've wanted an adult Star Wars animated show since like forever. When are we gonna get one?(Resistance is on the Disney channel so I understand:rolleyes:). When Filoni said, the Resistance was anime inspired, these anime films came to mind, Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy Bebop, Paprika, and Perfect Blue. a Star Wars anime show mind blown! haha... Anywho, I like the cel shading look of the Resistance. I'll watch it, since I've watched cheesy Lego Star Wars shows like the Freemaker Adventures.:D

    honestly don't really like it myself. Just seems a bit too Disney. Although I like how they characterized fighter pilots which they don't usually do in star wars. I also really like poe! oh and leai as well

    Ok, as am inclined to defend the show at least until the first episode comes out (and if it sucks - I'll stop), here's a clip from the Clone Wars. It's four times more footage than we have from the Resistance at the moment. What would you think about the show if you've only seen this?

    I'm mixed emotions about this series. I'm willing to give it a shot. The animation doesn't bother me. Maybe it being on Disney Channel, the series can be little bit more mature than Rebels. I know Disney XD is what held the show back.

    Yes! Absolutely this!

    It's what I wanted for SW animation. It's refreshing, different and with a personal style.
    Tron: Uprising is an underrated masterpiece, visionary and stonishing (more targeted towards adults). I loved it. (It was my wish some months ago ;) https://thecantina.starwarsnewsnet....r-animated-star-wars.11893/page-3#post-479485 )
    SW Resistence seems more childish but for the animation I'm really in.

    Hopefully that live-action series will be for adults.

    Whoever cancelled that game shall burn on Tatooine!

    Meh, doesn't really look that appealing to me. The teaser didn't really feel like Star Wars to me; in fact, it felt more like an imitator than anything. I do kinda dig some aspects of it though. It looks very vibrant and colorful and seems to be very unconventional from the Star Wars norm. It's nice we're seeing more alien characters in this show, plus there's some nice ship designs. I'll probably watch the pilot at least.

    Kinda surprising how much hate the show is already getting when we've only seen about 60 seconds of the first episode. Actually, scratch that, not too surprising for this fanbase... ;)

    Star Wars fans hating Star Wars? Nooooo waaayy :eek:

    Seriously though, the selective memory people have continues to amaze me. The supposed "fans" of a franchise should probably remember what the early episodes of the CW and Rebels were like. Jar Jar Binks distracting people so the transports could take off? Immature and annoying Ahsoka? Ezra and Zeb stealing a TIE fighter to get a fruit? Stormtroopers that can't hit anything point blank? Man, this stuff is too mature for people under 35. You think I am exaggerating? Than how come most people complaining that WSR is "for kids" are over 30?
