Never been a fan of Clone Wars but the entire premise and setting of this new series had me intrigued.
I loved it so, so much. Obviously great for kids but it was clearly made for Star Wars fans. I loved all the characters and I can tell they'll all have great backstories and arcs to come. Has a very Millenium Falcon/Ebon Hawk (from the Knights of the Old Republic games) team dynamic.
Especially this soon after GOTG, it has that crazy, fun sci-fi feel everyone will be wanting. Except dare I say, Rebels has MUCH better female characters than GOTG. I can just see all the Sabine cosplay happening.
It also helped alot that it was a double episode. I didn't want it to end. Also I'm not generally a fan of these cgi cartoons but it looks great. Literally my one and only critisism is the Wookies looked unfinished. It was like everything else had been rendered and the Wookies were just unfinished 3D objects thrown in, but it didn't take away from my enjoyment of it.
Its great to be exicted about Star Wars again, especially leading up to Episode VII next year.
Yes I was pleasantly surprised! I can't wait for the next episode. I felt the same way about the wookies. That was the only thing that took me out of the show for a bit. But otherwise, I liked the characters and seeing the rebellion from this perspective and point in time.
