    Many have probably see this or at least part of it before but it is dated 2015 at the end.
    80's style anime with no dialog.

    I'l make it easier. I love it but I wish they did voice overs for it.

    You know this is nearly four years old, yes? And there are probably other threads on it....

    Liked the older/shorter version with more appropriate music, but amazing visuals for sure!

    Man this highly detailed and fast pace style of animation is what I miss from anime these days.

    Also this makes me long for a new Tie Fighter game.

    Loved it, but not so cool on the Joe Satriani type music for Star Wars, although I love his music--check out this one about the Silver Surfer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoERl34Ld00

    Give it correct SW music and voice over and yeah I'm all for it.

    Do probe droids ever say anything other than "paliabasenta paliabasend"?

    Probe droids are actually quite loquacious and have been known to engage in spontaneous oratory on all range of subjects. The annual probe droid symposium on the ISD Revenant is supposed to be quite the gathering of droid intellectuals.

    Last year I got to attend an all probe droid performance of Henry V. It was amazing.

    Back on subject, I like the anime, but agree that better music would improve it greatly. For example the "Rage Mix" of the Imperial March, from Force Commander:

    That was darn cool!
    This is what I was hoping for when "Rebels" was announced.
    This is the STAR WARS I want to see -
    enough with the jedi/sith crap, already.

    Visually spectacular, but that music doesn't belong anywhere near SW. Not to mention it overpowered the sound FX to the point you could barely hear them at all. I would have preferred no music at all and just hearing all the sound effects. And what's the point in animating the mouths if you're not going to put a voice to it? Just my thoughts. I did like it otherwise, though.

    I agree music much better there. I loved the animation. I thought seeing real people under the TIE pilot buckets added so much to the piece. It's exactly the kind of show I would love to see. I really hope there is a company looking to pick this up and run with it.

    My style of anime has always been more dragonball Z/thundercats era.....I never cared for this type of look because it looks so.....glossy for lack of a better term.
    but it's no doubt what was done was impressive.

    but this is what is missing from Rebels. A sesnse of Danger. Rebels is far too simplistic and Disney fied to really feel like star wars once the new ness wears off.

    Too bad my TMNT recreation doesn't get any recognition. 4 years on that with more than just weekend work and i've got no previous training. just figuring it out as I go. maybe it doesn't look as impressive because the original animation wasn't much to it to begin with, and even that much i'm still having trouble replicating at times heh.

    The music is of the same anime era as the animation. From that aspect, it is perfect.

    From a strictly SW aspect, of course...

    - - - Updated - - -

    Yeah, that bothered me a teeny bit too. There are other probe droid sounds to be had, like from the video games.

    Poor tactics by the Rebs. OF COURSE an attacking enemy would use the asteroid field to cover a flanking maneuver!

    It's his Homage to the Robotech style of animation, and the Tie Fighter Games. So as stated the music is appropriate. As for tactics, an Interdiction Cruiser will ruin a day quickly.

    I LOVED all the visual aspect of this short absolutely.

    It was just a shame that it was presented with a bad choice of music instead of something more cinematic that would really bring in the Star Wars feel to the whole thing. I did not like the extensive use of that rocker music stuff for this at all. And how about a few voiceovers at least?

    I'm a fan.
    Pleased me on the anime front, the Star Wars front, and the guitarist front.

    APPROVED.

    I thought that it looked more Gundam-esque than Macross, Southern Cross, or Mospeada, the Imperial Star Destroyer captain or admiral is almost a dead ringer for Char Aznable from the original Gundam series.

    Agreed, it is not a dead ringer for Tatsunoko, but is in the ballpark of other studios'.

    I hate to reiterate this, but yeah, music was a no-go for me.

    I KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN!

    On another note, I downloaded the poster from deviantart and it makes a kickass 28x32 print.

    the music is homage to Anime stlye from the 80's, robotech/mospeda, akira, even 80s cartoons like silverhawks, thundercats, etc. So, this music makes perfect sense, along with the style of animation, colors, characters, pace, etc.

    The short rocks so hard. Love seeing the Immobilizer cruiser along with the use of the Tie Bombers that was only used once in the sequels. Also like the use of Probe Droid in space. Cause sometimes some people get the misconception certain ships/droids are only used once in a certain places. When I was a child and when I saw a At-At /ST walker on planet Endor in ROTJ. Blew my mind thinking they were only used on planet Hoth. Love the cockpit shots and Tie Fighter helmet switch from helmet to the pilot's head, that was super cool.
    I *$*****@ love it ALL, Give me more!!!!

    Hire this guy, give him a team with a modest budget and not to take too many chances on a network, Disney should release the series on VOD sites, Netflix, Amazon, etc.
    Hurry up, do it now!!! enough with this Mickey Mouse garbage.

    And this short is 100times better than all the sequels put together.

    By the way, was that Luke Skywalker who was killed in the X-Wing along with R2? lol!

    Well, I don't think it is that great......

    I just like it because the animation looks pretty good. Personally, I hate all that anime, magma, whatever stuff. Never been able to get into ANY of it.
