I'd rather see it on Netflix. The Marvel Netflix series are awesome!

Technically there is, but yeah - I'd agree. Her general's outfit would be the one I'd have expected them to do... can't believe there wasn't even like a Han / Luke / Leia 3-Pack or some other such nonsense to play up the returning heroes. Hell, even a 6-pack with them and then Chewbacca, R2, and Threepio.
Filoni said it in that clip. All living beings help to create The Force. Qui-Gon helped describe some of the basics of The Force when he was speaking with Anakin in Episode I, and Yoda did with Luke in TESB as well. Plus, between George Lucas and Dave Filoni, they both agreed that a being like the Ysalamiri that could negate The Force would go against the overall concept of The Force being generated by all living things.
I'm not trying to crap all over Timothy Zahn's work. But I think that plot points like this Ysalamiri one are indicative of a weakness that Lucasfilm had with the old EU. Because it really seemed like there was not a guiding force back in the 90's when the Thrawn trilogy was written to guide story points like this one. But in the current era we have the Lucasfilm story group looking at the big picture and steering things in a cohesive fashion.
Dave Filoni spoke briefly about the Ysalamiri during the REBELS panel at SWCE. And he specifically mentioned a conversation that he had with George Lucas on the Ysalamiri. The conclusion they came to was that the effect that the Ysalamiri had with this "Force bubble" didn't make sense in their interpretation of The Force. As a result the Ysalamiri wouldn't be carried forward in the way they were depicted in the Thrawn trilogy of books.
That behemoth said he was one of the Bendu. And that goes right back to the original Star Wars script, where the Jedi were known as the Jedi Bendu knights. I get the sense that this part of the story might involve Force users who are neither Jedi nor Sith, which certainly seems to open things up a bit. Especially since the Knights of Ren appear to be Force users who are Dark Siders, but not affiliate with the Sith.
This is the type of notion that makes me queasy when it comes to this hobby. For better or for worse, after 21 years I still enjoy collecting, but I can't stand half of the people who are into it.
First Odor TIEs were $19.99. Poe's X-Wang was more, not that cheap, just under $40, IIRC, and had security things around it. LIKE ANYONE WOULD STEAL THAT.
