    Will it play on my SNES?

    What does this have to do with gaming? Don't get me wrong, the show looks like it has a lot of potential to be good, and I may very well watch it at some point, but this website is called GAMESradar for a reason. This article seems off-topic. As a sidenote, if they don't bring in Starkiller I'll consider it a wasted opportunity.

    You bring up a good point. Sometimes this site feels like it should be called 'Geekradar'.

    They won't bring Starkiller. Don't you remember what Lucasfilm said? They declared everything but Episodes 1-6 and The Clone Wars TV Show Non-Canon. This new TV show will be considered canon. The dozens of Star Wars video games aren't canon. Therefore Starkiller doesn't actually exist in the Star Wars universe, but rather in a pocket dimension near Star Wars.

    Yes, I'm aware of that fact. That doesn't mean they can't drag Starkiller from his games and rewrite his story in the new show. Rebels is taking other EU elements and bringing them into canon (the ISB I believe is an example), why not Starkiller? The decanonizing of The Force Unleashed means that they can utilize and develop the character in new and interesting ways, and maybe provide a fitting conclusion to his arc after TFUII didn't get a sequel. Maybe it's wishful thinking, and I understand if they'd prefer to come up with their own characters, but I thought it'd be cool.

    Good point. If they do bring him in and change him a bit they should find him a love interest that feels less like a cardboard cutout. They'd probably also iron out all the ways he was so stupidly overpowered in the games.

    I hope so too, especially as George Lucas said that Force Unleashed was canon before the Disney takeover.
  • The_Tingler - July 27, 2014 6:17 a.m.

    Yep, my thoughts too. The series looks potentially excellent and I'm excited... but this is a gaming site. I'm excited about the new series of Arrow, Guardians of the Galaxy is out very soon and looks great, plus just finished reading The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch and thought it was amazing, but none of them have anything to do with games so I don't expect GamesRadar to cover them!!!

    --those graphics look MIGHTY 'goofy' to be a star wars game --is --Disney responsible for any of this?
  • CargoJoe - July 25, 2014 4:53 p.m.

    its a tv show
  • _--_ - July 25, 2014 5:31 p.m.

    --it looks like Star Wars --meets --toy story
  • homestar99 - July 26, 2014 8:14 a.m.

    Yes, it does look quite silly. Too bad Lucasfilm made everything but The Six Films and The Clone Wars TV Show non-canon. This new TV show is going to be the only source of new, canon information for fans of the franchise. In other words, people will suck it up and watch anyways to see more canon content.
  • N7Spartan95 - July 26, 2014 3:02 p.m.

    The animation is pretty much the same as the previous series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which makes sense seeing as Rebels is being made by the same people. The previous show was pretty good, so here's hoping this one meets expectations.
  • The_Tingler - July 27, 2014 6:19 a.m.

    It's not QUITE Clone Wars, it IS a little more "cartoony". Not a problem really, but don't expect a classic trilogy version of Clone Wars.
  • winner2 - July 25, 2014 10:56 a.m.

    ...sigh
  • Moondoggie1157 - July 25, 2014 10:54 a.m.

    This sounds like a joke... I'll pass on it...
  • Frieza - July 25, 2014 10:43 a.m.

    Okay. That's... cool, I guess?
