It really makes no sense, besides the studios just slashing the budget for animators to work with.
Animation trends, along with peoples' tastes and preferences, are cyclical. Disney, WB, from all the way back to the Fleischer era, up through the stylized and simplified presentation of today's shows, it's always the same.

For a while, there's a sense of one-upsmanship all around, with everyone's animation trying to raise the bar, and things get really good. Then, you have a run where people are willing to settle for, basically, crap; especially if that "crap" sells a lot of toys, and everyone else is doing it. Eventually, there's a rebound, everyone's standards go back up, people start demanding more again, and then things once again start to sparkle and shine.

Compare Popeye shorts from the 1930s to those from the 1960s, for example. Or Fleischer Superman in the 40s to the Filmation Superman show in the 60s, then once more to the 1990s Superman animated series (which itself paid great homage to the Fleischer shorts). Or even the original, classic Disney animated films, to the mid-period "animation ghetto" stuff of the 60s and 70s, and then back to the "Second Disney Renaissance" of the 1990s.

Sometimes the trends last longer or shorter, but they're usually measured in at least a decade. The cycle goes "Beauty - Crap - Beauty" on a loop.

We're currently in a "crap" phase, despite technology vastly improving, because it's what people are presently willing to settle for. That will eventually change again.

The show isn't even out yet, and it looks like he voice actress playing General Leia has been fired over a tweet.

Oh, c'mon.

See, back in my day, people quickly grew out of diaper rash. Now it lasts forever.

No, she wasn't. It's only speculation on whether she was fired or not.

Fake news strike again!

Man, time flies. I didn't even realize, until I saw a commercial for it today, that this series is premiering tomorrow on regular Disney Channel. Well, I guess it's time to see if this show is going to be as boring as it looks.

I have to say, that was a REALLY boring first episode. Is this not going to be an action cartoon like The Clone Wars and Rebels? Is it gonna be like what Rescue Bots is for Transformers. I mean I'm perfectly fine if that's what it's going to be. But if what we saw in the first episode is what we're to expect from this series, I likely won't be watching a whole lot more.
