The Los Angeles Times' Hero Complex blog got to speak to Dave Filoni about his new show Star Wars Rebels
before New York Comic Con, and in addition to their interview
, the blog also debuted a new piece of concept art featuring familiar Imperial ships.
Here's one of the most interesting bits of the interview:
HC: "Clone Wars" told a story on a very broad canvas with a large number of characters acting as the leads. Will that approach continue with "Rebels" or will there be a core group featured in every episode?
DF: "Rebels" will be different from "The Clone Wars" in a couple ways, and one is the decision to stick with one story and one main group of characters. We wanted fans to get to know the new characters and what they are fighting for. Each episode has its own unique story, while still fitting into the much larger picture of what is going on in the "Star Wars" universe. "Rebels" will tell the story of a group of characters, in this way it is more like the original trilogy which followed Han, Luke and Leia, where the prequels showed us the grand scale and political as well as personal.
