I was listening to the TV series rumors on the Oct 19 Forcecast and couldn't help but wonder if Lando would show up somewhere. How cool would it be to see a young Lando. If Boba Fett is going to be around, why not Lando?
Any thoughts

thats a great point you've got there. I hope we will get to see lando as a main character or at least see him in some kind of cameo appearance http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Its a possibility. Even though Lando is one of the 'main' characters, he only had limited screen time. So his origins may well bear some development.

At CE someone actually asked Billy Dee how long he had known Han Solo. After looking embarassed for a short while he said '30 years?'. I don't know what the chances are of seeing a young Han Solo though...

This really depends on exactly when in the 20 year period between episodes III and IV the series is set, don't you think? I don't know how interesting it'd be to see a 10 year old Han or Lando, or what the fan reception would be (although I can imagine, after what they thought of 9 year old Anakin http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif )

I'm hoping we see Jimmy Smitts reprise his role as Bail Organa.
If Anthony Daniels has put his hand up for a role in the TV series, then that pretty much means that Smitts' Bail Organa character will have to be involved in some capacity.

If that's the case, then the pretty young lady (who's name eludes me right now) the one who played Mon Mothma in ROTS' deleted scenes should be involved as well as the Mon Calamari men such as a younger Ackbar and some of his species and why not throw some Quarren into the story as well - maybe Tessek's older brother.

A show like this has so much potential and room to explore so many different aspects of the Star Wars universe and of course introduce us to something new as well.

I'm hoping we see the final transition from ROTS Clonetrooper to OT Stormtrooper.
I also want to see how Clones age rapidly and die off.
There's so much story just in that and if Boba Fett is to be included, then it's only fair that Daniel Logan is given the chance to play Boba Fett - he'd be the right age to do it now (he's 20 yrs old now) - do it for continuity's sake!

"Selucami has fallen and Master Vos has moved his troops to Boz Pity"

I'm suspecting that Uncle George had Quinlan Vos' death scene removed from ROTS so he could include him in the TV show.
I think a story involving a Jedi hiding out somewhere, surviving on scraps and running from the Empire's troops would be really cool to see.
And for pete's sake, if Uncle George does not include Darth Vader and Palpatine - even if it's a tiny cameo role - then he's crazy!

Darth Vader needs to appear in the series.
Palpatine could appear as a hologram to someone at some point - maybe a public address??
But honestly, how great would it be at the end of say series one, we see Darth Vader with his 501st legion hunt down a Jedi in hiding (Maybe Vos, or some 'new' guy) then fight and kill him!!

I reckon the content of the Fore Unleashed game will give a lot of clues as to the TV show's content. After all, Lucas has pitched it as the real next installment of the Star Wars saga, ie canon.

I was intrigued to see a battle-damaged Vader figure in Curto's Fan Days pictures. I guess now the films are finished Lucas feels more at liberty to show things like that - Vader without his helmet.

There are definitely some fugitive Jedi in the game too, so why not in the show?

Hey! I just thought of something that could be really great - the adventures of grown-up Kitster!

If they are starting the show in the "dark times" between ROTS and ANH. At least one episode has to include the early days of the rebellion. The deleted scenes on the ROTS disc were just not enough. How about the first time they actually took up arms and moved away from diplomacy and senate resolutions?

It would be cool to see Jimmy Smits, Geneive O'Reilly, heck even Bai Ling reprise some of there roles that were cut down in ROTS.

Normally I think a story of young versions of a series’ heroes is pretty much redundant because we know of the hero’s character already in the main story. The one exception may be the teenage Boba Fett who given his humble (?) beginnings, should epitomize an era of darkness. The Dark Times when use and knowledge of the Force, threatening the essence of hope and prosperity throughout the galaxy, is essentially shared between two, Go For Pappa Palpatine and Vader.

I hope not. After all, Billy Dee couldn't play him and he IS Lando.

It would be great to see Daniel Logan as Boba Fett. He's really done a wonderful job doing all the stuff for the fans and he was Boba Fett in Ep II. At the very least use him for the un-masked scenes.

It's amazing how much Daniel Logan looks like a young Temuera Morrison, I really hope he gets the part, even if he's, in Jason's word's, a bit "vertically challenged" http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

camera work can work some things out.

I would really like to see Sate Pestage and Palpy's aides and see what on earth (or the galaxy) happened to them

They probably had some tragic, totally unforeseen, and lethal accident, along with anyone else who knew anything about Palpatine's rise to power.

Tem Morrison isn't exactly a tall man - He's 5'7"
Daniel Logan is 5'8", so that makes hm a whole inch taller than his on screen "Dad"

And then Jeremy Bulloch is taller still, may be something to do with the cloning technique or the drinking water on Kamino? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

I didn't go to see Daniel Logan at the local shindig after all.

Nonetheless, I know he can be a little, er...crass? Rambunchious? hyper? Yes, those work. Anyway, if he doesn't get the role, I think it's because no one at LFL wants to work with him.

This is great news - there's no way another actor could do this - unless Boba was permanently masked - this is great for continuity's sake!

Ha! Mike, that was an editorial none could pass up! Holy Cow! With that much Star Wars music, Sirius and XM could, no, should make a Star Wars channel.

Sounds good so far - Boba Fett confirmed - six writers hired and even the Jedi Maestro himself John Williams is going to (hopefully) be involved!

I wonder who the writers are?

Thanks. I was just hoping I spelled "editorialize" correctly.
