Nice look at the development of the series.  Freddie Prinze Jr is something of an unexpected bit of casting, but the character looks cool.  It's funny though, because Freddie's voice reminds me somewhat of the voice actor who played Anakin Skywalker in Clone Wars, Matt Lanter. 

As for the character of Kanan?  He reminds me slightly of the central character from the Dark Times comic series, Dass Jennir.  But with Jedi being on the run from the Empire, I would think there's the potential for some recurring themes when it comes to former Jedi characters.  Still, he appears like he might be a little young given when REBELS is supposed to take place.  Was he a padawan when Order 66 was issued?  And it also seems clear that at some point he's going to have a lightsaber duel with the Inquisitor.  I'm hoping those scenes will be cool, but shouldn't scenes like that be few and far between?

I think I'd prefer him having been a pretty young Padawan, only because that explains some of his ease of changing who he is as he grows up into adulthood...  He'd maybe have less developed force ability, and less likely to not be able to hide his powers and his past.  It also might have emotionally traumatized him more being so young when Order 66 goes down.  It could add to his character.

I was a tad surprised to hear they're kicking Rebels off 14 years AFTER ROTS...  It gives lots of time for changes for sure.  It also makes Leia and Luke more likely to show up, or at least the former anyway.

When I first saw "Kanan" I thought "young Han Solo with a lightsaber" which evolved into a Kyle Katarn/ Cade Skywalker homage. So, I guess they are doing things right in terms of keeping me engaged in the SW world.

I was thinking very much along the Kyle Katarn angle...  The personality some maybe, as well, and the "rough" background, then the Jedi with a gun thing...  Kind of a cowboy. 

I always thought Kyle had a bit of Han in him with the rogue-ish personality and the whole loner thing too.

I think it's a good character...  The Rebellion really needed to have a Jedi at its core, if not a couple.  Assuming TFU may have some life to it yet, there's still Kota there...  Lots of good stuff with this guy though I think.  I'm glad to see it's not all "little kids" like I was worrying it might be.

If he's a Jedi, where's his lightsaber? Even a half-assed late bloomer like Luke could build one of those things!

Just kidding, I assume that would be a dead giveaway.

They talk about it in the video.  He has one and just tries to bury his past but that will change.

You haven't met the rest of his "crew" yet - be patient.

No, but whoever his crew is, he's the Captain, and he's not a little kid...  I'm ok with that and him having a young crew backing him up, if it goes that way.

Not a LOT shown, but interesting to see.  I'm really curious to see how much they cater to the adult market compared to kids.  That was always a delicate balance in TCW.  It'll be even more of one now that Disney's in charge, I feel.

Meet Zeb, The Muscle!

Another introduction video...  Now they just need to introduce that chick Mando who looked badass, and someone from the Empire other than the friggin' Inquisitor...  some vehicles and drivers would be neat too. :P

I like that he apparently hates chopper...  Chopper seems like a prick and I've not even seen the show yet.

Yeah, Zeb looks pretty cool, I dig the voice. Not feeling it for Ezra though, I'm tired of street smart punk kids.

Meet "Feisty" Sabine

Don't you feel the need to include a feline "Raaarrr" (purr/roar) after reading that?
