"It's incredibly exciting to be able to actually tell this story, because it's a huge story in Kanan's life—it's a significant event in his development. It's not just, 'Oh yeah, we're going to tell another story. Here's another adventure.' It's not just another adventure. It's a huge event in his life."
―Greg Weisman[src]
