WonderCon 2014 Star Wars: Panel

(Transcript courtesy of @amy_geek)

Panelists include Dave Filoni, Vanessa Marshall, and Killian Plunkett.

Filoni: You'll see a more unified look top to bottom than Clone Wars ever had.

Vanessa Marshall: We have so much fun I almost feel guilty.

Filoni: It's a rather new experience to have so many people reference Clone Wars now. Vanessa knows it backwards and forwards.

Filoni: The basis for what Hera finally became was basically Amy [Christenson].

Hera concept designs

At one point they considered making Hera a Togruta

Palette of Star Wars: Rebels will be brighter than Clone Wars.

Filoni: I want you guys to know Star Wars is still in the same hands as it has always been.

(Rebels Clip shown) has a lot of nods to A New Hope, even to the point of making some explosions similar.

Filoni thought animation on Tangled was so fantastic that he asked animation supervisor Keith Kellogg to look at stuff for Star Wars: Rebels

Filoni: from the first episode to the last, it will be about and focus on the main group of people/heroes.

Their aim with this show is to capture the classic Star Wars vibe which encompasses many tones/emotions.

(In response to a fan question:) Characters in Star Wars: Rebels probably won't go to Coruscant.

Kevin Kiner is the composer for Star Wars: Rebels

(Rebels Theme played)

Musically, Star Wars: Rebels will be a lot closer to A New Hope

They're using a lot of Star Wars themes in Star Wars: Rebels and integrating them with new themes by Kiner.

*SPOILER* I was surprised by the way the season ended. I really thought they would kill off Kanan for some reason.   How is this a spoiler?  In case someone who hasn't watched the first season yet reads this. Wondering if Kanan is going to die at the hands of the Empire was kind of t... read more

Yeah I didn't pick up till late in season 1, after catching a few episodes I kinda got hooked.  Then once season 2 started it really got good.  So I would say definitely give it a chance DarthJoe

No way this is for kids Well my point was, it seems that way if you only go by the first four episodes or so. Clone Wars was a lot the same way if I recall. The trailers for season 2 and 3 make it look a lot more interesting.
