posted a great interview with Star Wars Rebels
Executive Producer Dave Filoni yesterday in which he gives this cryptic description of an upcoming scene in season two.
Give me a nice cryptic tease of a specific event you’re really looking forward to fans seeing in season 2.
Ummm. Boy. I know exactly what it is.
You know, it was interesting. I was, oddly, up at Skywalker Ranch [in Marin County, north of Lucasfilm's San Francisco offices], while Kathy [Kennedy] and J.J. [Abrams] were at Comic-Con doing their panel. I had the StarWars.com livestream updating on my computer while I was drawing and storyboarding probably one of the most critical things I've ever drawn and staged at my job at Lucasfilm. And I just found it to be a really interesting kind of crossover point, to see Kathy carrying forward this big movement of Star Wars now, and the fan excitement, and to be...literally I was drawing it in about the same place where I started Clone Wars in 2005.
[Lucasfilm] moved from the Ranch to Big Rock [a nearby studio] and then down to the Presidio [in San Francisco], but that day, because the Golden Gate Bridge was temporarily closed—they were doing some traffic changes—I went in and worked at the Ranch, which I hadn't done in a long time. And it just so happened that I was drawing this really, really, really, really, really, really, really important moment that I had turned over in my head many times, dealing with Ahsoka. And all this was happening on this same day.
I'll never forget that. That was really just a great day in my head for Star Wars. And I thought, "Wow, no one knows this is all happening." But I never would have thought, when I started in 2005, that I would be there 10 years later, not just working on what I was, in that moment, but also witnessing this forward future for Star Wars on a scale that I don't think any of us could have imagined in 2005.
It was kind of a nice point where all things came together for me. And that stuff that I staged, that particular scene, and everything surrounding it...I'm very excited for fans to see. That's going to be a big one. When it happens, you can ask me, you'll say, "Was this the thing?" and I'll say, "Yeah," and I can go into more detail about it.
Is that cryptic enough?
