10 Things from Star Wars Rebels We Want to See in the Movies

Ten cool things from Star Wars Rebels we hope to see in future live-action movies

When the Disney XD animated series Star Wars Rebels (available today on Blu-ray) was first launching, there were a lot of knee-jerk reactions: “The graphics look cheap! It’s for kids! They should keep doing ‘Clone Wars!’ Ezra is just Space Aladdan!” But as the show progressed, it turned into one of the truest expressions of the spirit of fun and adventure embodied in the Original Trilogy, all the while expanding upon iconic aspects of Star Wars in new and creative ways. That’s why we want to see a number of things “Rebels” is doing really well cross over into the slate of live-action feature films that Lucasfilm is cooking up.

The trans-media precedent is there for crossover between TV and film within the Star Wars universe: Boba Fett made his first appearance in the animated segment of the infamous “Star Wars Christmas Special,” while General Grievous popped up in Genndy Tartakovsky’s original 2D “Clone Wars” cartoon in a cliffhanger that led directly into Revenge of the Sith. Listen up, Lucasfilm Story Group’s Kiri Hart, Carrie Beck, Pablo Hidalgo, Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg, as this is a list of some awesome stuff from “Star Wars Rebels” that we want to see brought to life in at least one of those six movies you have slated!
