    Vader! oO

    Will it better than Star Wars : Farce increases ?
    Edited by: "zworld" 6th Sep 2016

    Meh.... Now Disney own it, there'll be countless movies/TV series/cartoons/merchandise.

    Look out for hidden mickeys and hidden Disney characters everywhere.

    Vader soon to be voiced by John Ratzenberger and theme music rescored by Randy Newman.

    Can't wait. Must have watched the trailer once for every one of those days.

    Hopefully rogue one will have a good story and not be a cameo starwars reunion fest with a borrow plot. I like the starwars universe but prefer to see more of it with a good plot and not a half baked quantum of solace writers strike effort.

    ​yeah, because Disney were responsible for the last one. Oh no wait; no they weren't.. oO

    Look at the quality of that cartoon - Phileas and Ferb. Is this the tosh that kids are shown these days. Absolutely no quality in that shoddy artwork!

    The cartoons I grew up watching were far superior in story and artwork!
    Wild Cats - youtu.be/xGI…GFA
    Exo Squad - youtu.be/UtL…MI8
    etc.

    I will be seeing it..... If I can get some cheap tickets from a deal on here!

    Don't be silly. We're from the same generation, but let's be honest. We were funnel-fed toy adverts.

    The stuff now is infinitely smarter than anything we ever had. 'Adventure Time', 'Regular Show' even 'Spongebob'. I can't think of anything from our era that could compete, short of 'Ren & Stimpy', maybe 'Rocco's Modern Life'. The shows now are just that. Shows, first and foremost, rather than marketing materials.

    Although I tip my hat to your 'Exo Squad' nod. A sophisticated show for it's time, but did anyone who wasn't into 'Gundam' actually watch it?

    We did have Darkwing duck, Duck tales, Talespin, Gummi bears, Looney Tunes, Popeye, etc. I disgress.

    We did. All Disney, just like Phineas and Ferb. Which is better than any of them in terms of writing.

    Looney Tunes and Popeye are a few decades early surely? Unless you're a Vampire??

    Was just going to list those exact shows, the shows we had in the 80's most were edited redubbed japanese cartoons,

    Me and the kids have just recently worked our way through Steven Universe, which is now getting a decent story. but Adventure Time, Gumball, Regular Show etc are miles above the stuff we had as kids.

    I was hoping that Mads Mikkelson's character was gonna be Starkiller .. but turns out he's another "Galen"

    there is still hope he'll make an appearance at some point (fingers crossed)

    I've got a ten year old so I get to see the good stuff. 'Gravity Falls' is a worth a watch.

    My son loves Gravity Falls he loves all the lore and mysteries behind it, I have a boy aged 11 so same here mate..

    cartoons in my day were M.A.S.K / He-Man / Jayce and the wheeled warriors / Thundercats etc .... never heard of exo squad? although there was The Centurions (power extreme!!)

    I'll wait for the Tesco after Christmas Sale to get the toys 75% off.
    The film doe slook to being good.

    Disney haven't ruined Star Wars yet, to be fair George Lucas made a right rear end of the prequels.
    Star Wars Rebels is decent enough.

    Ulysses 31 is amazing.



    Exo squad was about 92. I think there was only one series of it though. It was a little philosophical. I didn't watch it in the day, rather sought it out later because of my interest in mecha anime, Gundam specifically.
