True story: in a Star Wars presentation, James Arnold Taylor (voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi in basically everything other than the actual movies) asked "what would you know me from? Well..." and he just sidetracks the entire Star Wars presentation by listing off almost every VA role he's ever played including roles that weren't even from Star Wars DURING A STAR WARS PANEL. XD

I lost almost all of my respect for him right then and there and I'd tell you he was an idiot that should be ignored if he didn't (immediately afterward) have such inspiring things to say about Voice-Acting and getting into Voice-Acting. He's almost like Yoda if Yoda took breaks in-between teaching Luke about The Force to brag about how he "totally pwned" Count Dooku and countless other Sith.

If we've gotten into an argument, it's okay. I'm not holding a grudge against you. Why? Because I like you!

If I haven't posted in awhile, it's probably because I'm with friends.

As much as I love Dexter and Samurai Jack, Tartakovsky's overall approach to Star Wars wasn't very true to the films IMO. Seeing Yoda ride an alien horse, a bounty hunter and Obi-Wan joust on speeder bikes, Mace Windu jump on a Vulture Droid and rewire its circuits (with his bare hands!) to fly it himself, among other things. It was all TOO literal with "wizards in space", and the believability as to what Jedi are capable of.

Probably the best part of the series was the Grievous arc; all the tension and stress the Jedi go through evading and fighting him, was genuinely gripping to watch.

@Mickey That was something Lucas should've expanded on in both II and III; their friendship. Hearing Obi-Wan in IV say "and he was a good friend." makes me think that they really were. But we mostly see them argue and fight throughout the PT, with maybe less than a half-hour total of real bonding and such.

I guess The Clone Wars sorta helped fix that, but even in that they mainly bantered and made sarcastic remarks with one another, rarely showing any real signs of friendship.

@Austroid The way I see it: by The Clone Wars, they were already close friends. They did most of their bonding during Anakin's training in-between Episodes I-II. They only got antagonistic when Padme went back into Anakin's life. You're spot-on about them arguing throughout the PT though. That was sort of weak. But, like I said before, their relationship seemed to have the teensiest bit of an improvement after the microseries in Episode III. For instance: check out this [unfortunately] deleted scene from Ep. 3:

Honestly, if we had more of that, we wouldn't be discussing this. XD

lol at Y'all being afrarid rebels is going to suck when its the clone wars team plus greg wiseman working on one of the most intresting points in Star Wars History.

I'm just wondering when Marvel is going to get the lisence for the comcis back. I think its sometime next year.

My only real fear of Star Wars rebels is that jedi and Sith running around everywhere, The concept art looks good though.

I do hope the show explains why the Jedi Orde and the republic are all but forgtten by the time a new hope starts.

Star Wars is probably one of my favorite properties to the extent I've read a few of the expanded universe books as well. It's going to be a bit funny that Star Wars will probably have a Live Action Tv series out before star trek ever does.

Seeing as how it was a Star Wars event, did you ever consider that maybe he figured the audience would already be aware of that role, thus he had no reason to mention it?

@RR529 I said "including" roles that weren't even from Star Wars. He started off by saying he was the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Plo Koon and then (speaking of things he had no reason to mention) he started mentioning the other non-Star Wars roles he played. I'm sorry, I should've said "including (but not limited to)" to be more clear.

Yeah I really liked that deleted scene, it still baffles me why they didn't keep it in. You can defiantly sense an authentic bond between them here; with their subtle "signals" to each other about what to do, its almost as if they're... good friends! :O

Also having Grievous kill Shaak Ti (instead of "saving" her for TFU game) gives him more of a menacing presence, than the constantly-gagging halfwit he mainly was in the CG Clone Wars.
