    I know it's probably not canon since it was unfinished and Clone Wars ended, but I am all for a duel with Cad Bane being the reason behind the dent in Boba's helmet. Also, should I spoiler tag that or not since the video is free to view?
    It's not canon, no point in spoiler tagging it imho

    I personally will think it's canon until canon states otherwise

    The previous unfished clone wars stuff was canon, but those were full episodes, not a single scene, so I'm not sure.

    I thought the dent was already explained. Didn't Jango get a blaster bolt redirected into his face in AoTC? Or is my mind inventing things again?

    Boba's helmet isn't his fathers.

    He used Jango's helmet as a bomb to try and kill Mace Windu.

    I thought something might've happened to it in Clone Wars somewhere, but I couldn't remember. So now we have two different helmets with the same dent.

    I don't remember there being a dent.

    Edited:

    I see it now, but the dent in Jango's helmet was a lot higher then Boba's.

    Edited:

    So back at Celebration 2016 Dave Filoni had trading cards with Ahsoka art he made, and he said they give hints to what happened to her after the Dual with Vader. Well on the cards is a picture of her, framed with Wolves.

    I'm pretty sure she is the wolf, the wolf is some sort of representation of her spirit after she was killed by Vader. I doubt the wolf is going to be talking or intelligent, but be a force spirit animal of some kind.

    Also remember, in the Mortis arc in Clone Wars, the Daughter gave life essence to her. That probably ties in with it.

    Dave Filoni is obsessed with both wolves and Ahsoka. It make sense.

    I'm listening to the Thrawn audio book, Marc Thompson does a great imitation of Thrawn's voice from Rebels.

    So John Williams showing up at Celebration was actually his idea, he wanted to do something for Carrie. That was so nice.

    So Walt Disney World might be getting a Star Wars themed hotel:

    Disney is surveying guests about a possible Star Wars resort hotel experience at Walt Disney World, which would take place on an “actual” Star Wars Starship…



    The survey is not being conducted by Disney, but rather by a contracted third party through Sawgbucks.com. The survey includes concept art and many details of what the experience would be like…

    This all-inclusive, 2-night immersive resort experience at Walt Disney World would include:

    *The opportunity to experience a 2-day story set in the the Star Wars universe
    *Be surrounded in a continuous, story-driven entertainment experience as it unfolds over the course of the 2-night stay
    *Have personal interactions with Star Wars characters 8i live performers throughout the starship (experience the story or simply observe the action according to personal preference)
    *Engage in the story with programs such as flight training, ship exploration, lightsaber training, and personalized secret missions (both on the starship and throughout the Star Wars themed planet)


    While staying aboard an all-inclusive luxury “starship” at Walt Disney World, guests will stay in luxury accommodations offering:

    *All meals during your stay: buffet breakfasts, lunches, & signature evening dining
    *Featured entertainment & dinner shows
    *Exclusive park admission to the Star Wars themed land at the Walt Disney World Resort (a new land opening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019)
    *Star Wars starship amenities including pool area & water garden, fitness area, on-board cantina, and robotic droid Butlers
    As of right now, the experience would be priced at roughly $900 to $1000 per guest.

    Minor Thrawn Novel Spoilers

       Thrawn's first contact with the Empire is almost identical to how Zahn told it in the short Story 'Mist Encounter' a few of the imperials officers have exact same names as well. His reasons for being exiled from the Chiss are also similar

    I hope from the bottom of my heart that when Rebels is done we can actually see some of the clone wars story threads be finished.

    Seeing Anakin descending into a disheveled mess barely held together like he was in the prequels as a result of Ahsoka leaving is a must. Seeing Grevious kill some more Jedi (maybe even the council member he was almost written to kill) in order to give him some teeth and make the duel in EP 3 seem less like a predictable joke is a must. Bad batch is kind of its own self contained thing but fuck, do it. Animating Boba's progression to his OT self, would be huge for redeeming that character and build so much demand for more content related to him.

    Out with the new in with the old dave filoni pls

    I've seen suggestions (maybe here as well?) of a Siege of Mandalore TV movie. That'd give us Ahsoka, Maul, Order 66, a view of Anakin post-Ahsoka, and more. Personally I'd love it if some of the more pivotal scenes from Revenge of the Sith were animated and thrown in there as well. That would give context to the movie's version of Order 66, and it'd probably be more convincing and heartbreaking to see Clone Wars Anakin fall.

    Pls Disney, let me have it.

    It would be nice if they did like DC animated films and release canon CGI films based on Clone Wars and Rebels characters.

    I doubt anyone expects to get shot after coming out of the door way with someone feeding them false information.

    Also that basically happened in WW2 during D-Day.

    If you wanted to know how Thrawn rose through the ranks without having to read the Thrawn novel.

    Thrawn novel spoilers obviously

    If he is talking about material from Legends he puts the Legends logo on the screen or tells you it is from Legends.

    He did use some art from Legends, but everything he talked about was from the Novel, I can confirm I listened to the Audio book.

    Star Wars Explained (formerly Star Wars Minute or something) is a great channel.

    Wow, so I just learned that Midi-chlorians were not made up for the PT, Lucas had them in mind since the OT but he felt there wasn't enough time to introduce them in the movies.

    I wonder if people would have felt differently about them if had they been mentioned them in the original film.

    They are ultimately pointless beyond "this guy has huge potential" so I don't think people would have liked them all that much.
