We'll find out soon enough eh.

Mmmmeh? I'll give it a look, but Sequel stuff isn't really my bag, the "anime inspired" thing isn't appealing, and TBH I was hoping they'd get to pick up with Sabine and Ahsoka searching for Ezra as a "frame" for exploring the IMO much more interesting period post-Endor.

Likely it will be similar to Rebels. New cast with some movie cameos that allow them to tell stories about the popular characters from the last series with less plot armor.

So what are the chances that we not only see Sabine and Asohka, but also Kanan and Hera's son.

Also I agree with Turnip, they really need to stop with Phasma.

Maybe I'm missing something on the Phasma hate - to me it's like hating General Veers, she was just sorta in the movie.

I actually wouldn't mind her character being fleshed out some more if it's done decently.

I'll let up if she is shown as having a shred of complexity or indeed actually being good at her job as over the two new films all the FO personnel appear to be comically inept video game baddies

But on the upside might mean some strange new X-Wing ships as many of the recent good ships came from Rebels

I suppose one of the big things is how hyped she is despite basically being on par with General Veers. Imagine if Veers got hyped up through interviews, comments, marketing, and other such things and was basically made a major figurehead despite basically being as he is.

Which is one of the reasons for the hype backlash.. She doesn't really do much.

This.

I figured this was a slam dunk where they were going next after the Rebels finale, and I was ok with that. I'm a lot less interested in pre-TFA than I am in post ROTJ.

She's essentially Darth Maul, but without even that much impact on the story.

Come on everyone, lets be fair to Veers. He was competent in ESB, shown as an effective and capable Combat Leader and I at least got the impression he was somewhat respected by Vader, unlike many of the Naval Officers.

Phasma walked around a bunch? Betrayed everything we were led to understand she stood for in order to save her own skin and then got thrown in a hole. Then some how came back, to be thrown in a hole because rather than execute the Spies (and they were technically spies, being members of the Resistance military caught in First Order Uniforms).


Speaking of Kanan and Hera's son, he could be a main character. Its stated he takes after his mother in the piloting department, and being older than Poe he could lead the Recon Squadron.

With Filoni in charge its a safe bet that Ahsoka and some of the Rebels crew will appear in some form. I'm guessing Poe and Phasma will not be regular characters and may only show up in the opening episodes. Given the fairly short time frame covered by the sequel episodes so far, could we see more overlap between the Resistance show and the movies in its later seasons?

So... they bring back the strong and beloved female character Asoka just in time to end the show, and instead concentrate on a bunch of fighter jocks?

Now tell me again how I'm somehow the one who can't handle a strong female character....

How though? The show is Resistance vs First Order, probably around the same kind of "just pre-VII" period as the Resurrection arc of the BF2 singleplayer campaign, which sees Iden Versio kicking ass as a grey-haired older lady with a fully grown young adult daughter, 20+ years will have gone by since Sabine and Ahsoka set out. Also, like I said, the context is important - that story is interesting, but it's not as interesting as seeing what the galaxy was like post-Endor, in the same way that one of the big appeals of Rebels was seeing the pre-ANH Empire and how the Rebellion came into being. If they go into it this far into the future...eh.

The funny thing is they realized how it sounded and when it came time to do her backstory in the novels she's utterly Dark Eldar when it comes to her own survival, cowardice, and how willing she is to murder her way up the ranks while keeping her skin intact. After reading that it seems like there has not been anyone she has personally betrayed on some level.

Spoiler tags needed for this one, as it's info in the Aftermath trilogy.

Spoiler:
Essentially, the Imperial Remnant scooted off to Unknown Space - which also happens to be where Thrawn is from, according to the new Thrawn novel. It could well be that's where Ezra and Thrawn wound up.

The end of Rebels suggests it's Ahsoka and Sabine weren't on any official mission, but one of their own choosing.

If someone is spying on the First Order, it's likely we'll see Unknown Space - and therefore run into Sabine and Ahsoka.

Spoiler:
But that's my point, either we will run into them & it will be a fairly direct continuation of their existing characters and plot, in which case it makes no sense because they'd have been out there for twenty years or more and surely in that time they'd have found Ezra or at least undergone some fairly major character development; or they'll appear in the show, but the writers will just skip over basically all the interesting "searching for Ezra as they navigate the post-Endor galaxy" stuff and depict them as having found Ezra and undergone all aforementioned character development, in which case there's not really much left to do with those characters that has any connection to their existing story, so why bother except name recognition? If it's the latter case, I'd expect like the sort of involvement Obi Wan, maybe Maul had in Rebels at the very most.

Well, it could turn out that they want to explore Sabine and Ahsoka's adventures in other media, such as comic books - or in a series yet to come. Possibly even a movie trilogy.

That they may or may not appear here doesn't necessarily change that.

I'd only be disappointed if they don't pick up on those threads at all, in any medium. You just can't leave long time fans hanging like that!

However, Dave Filoni has said that Ahsoka's design cues in that final scene do contain hints and secrets, so it seems likely there is some kind of plan there.

Ima going to stand by my Maul comparison. Maul featured really heavily in the marketing of TPM, but ended up with barely any screen time and a couple dozen lines of dialogue. Just like Phasma in TFA. Maul's big point of difference is that role in the pivotal final showdown, without that, he's a total Phasma.

Although I'll concede that "not much involvement in first movie, but enough to be intriguing, followed by ultimate inept comic death in second appearance" is total Fett!

Ever since the mouse took over SW I've felt that the new expanding cannon has been something of a double edged sword for FFG. It provides lots of new stuff for there games and ongoing free hype for SW products. But they are often playing catch up, or working to deadlines from outside with incomplete info. If Rebels is any indicator there might not be any Resistance content for X-Wing or the other FFG table top games until seasons two or three.
