    I
    know nothing about the species but she was younger than Anakin so theres a chance she was around, just far older, at that time.

    Ahsoka would have been around 70 at the time of RoS I believe.

    Obviously no thought was put into it when they were making The Force Awakens, but I actually like that idea (if he had to be a clone at all).

    The idea that Kylo would run from Luke's teachings right into the arms of demented, dark-side version of his old master (who was responsible for driving Kylo away from the OG Luke in the first place). It has the kind of poetic irony that Star Wars loves.

    That would have been somewhat interesting to know during the movies but since they were a giant cluster fuck....

    That make sense. At least they were able to leave in the dagger scavenger hunt, space horse battle, Palpatine again, and Rey Skywalker. No way the movie would have been good without those scenes.

    The time to do something with Ahsoka was the last trilogy we got. Once that passed and she wasn't in it, I don't really see how you bring her in with a leading role when she's that old. She's 15-20 years older than Luke/Leia, right?

    This is the giant problem. The franchise is rudderless without a cohesive vision and leadership. Get someone creative in power and let them either try to whitewash what’s been done, somehow salvage it, or just tell new stories. But until they cure the problem we’re going to keep getting inconsistent quality.

    What is left to officially announce after all the SW announcements back in December? I think Feige's project is the only one. Maybe they finally reveal that? I feel like they announced so much a few months ago that we won't get anything today.

    I'm hoping for a teaser for the Boba Fett series since I think they just wrapped filming on it.

    Yea good point. I'd say a teaser for the Fett series is one, and one additional project and perhaps its Feige's

    The instant they mentioned Depa Billaba I was like "Wait are they doing her death and Kanan's escape??? Nooo... Yes! They are"

    I was nerding out there. I read the comic but dont remember the specifics. Apparently some nerds are bitching about the small changes

    Also good to see Saw again. He has turned crazy yet.

    Rex would make sense based on CW ties, but I'm not sure how he would know where Rex is at that moment. It's TV so anything could happen and all that, but I think going right to Rex this early would be a bit surprising.

    I'm kind of thinking Saw based on their interaction in that episode.

    2nd episode of Bad Batch was OK.

    Really need a better storyline for

    Omega. Hope it's not just "she's one of us." Also seems cheap considering mandalorian child plot

    Finally finished Clone Wars. That final season was awesome. I loved it all and what it did for the franchise/story.

    Started Rebels and outside of the overly cartoonish look, I'm enjoying it so far. Going to finish these before I start Bad Batch.

    Rebels starts a little slow IMO, but it takes off quickly and is just as good as Clone Wars with very few misses the entire run.
