If people disliked the kid oriented nature of Rebels, they're going to despise this by the looks of the trailer. 

Reminds me a lot of the Lego Freemaker stuff. 

My kids and I enjoyed Rebels, so I'm hopeful this is at least as good.

I’ve been an anime fan going back to when “Robotech” was first released in the 80’s.  So this is somewhat familiar territory for me in terms of the animation.  I can absolutely see how the stylization of the characters might be a departure. But then I looked at the ships, the settings and that Stormtrooper.  And those elements looked awesome!  Having movie actors like Oscar Isaac in the mix lends a lot to the project, too. And was that Grumgar that tossed someone into the water?  Maybe he’s not just some hulking set dressing for Maz’s castle after all!

One question I have about the story relates to things that we learned about Han Solo post-ROTJ in the “Bloodline” novel. He was very much involved in the racing circuit during this era. Could we possibly see him make an appearance in this series?

All in all?  It was a 1 minute look at what is probably going to be a fairly lengthy series.  And I’m sure we’re going to see some more over the next month + leading up to the premiere.

I wasn't blown away by the trailer, but still looking forward to it. It's the definitive "reviews" on the show based off of a one minute trailer that once again have me annoyed with our community. At least pretend you're giving it a fair chance and let the first episode air. Then tell me again how Disney should rot in hell.

On a side note. I can't believe I have to "stick up" for Disney. I don't even like Disney. Up until the 90s their movies were boring, simple, etc. But it doesn't mean they never make anything good. Sorry as we were.

I showed the trailer to my 7 year old and he liked it.  Remember, that's ultimately Disney's core demographic.

It does get quite silly how people think that they can judge an entire series based on a teaser trailer.

Like anything else?  Let's wait and see.
