A fan, Dookers0435, asked @starwars, with the hashtag of #rebelsrecon, if the Stormtroopers that we see in Star Wars Rebels were clone troopers or just regular folks. One of the main storytellers for Star Wars Pablo Hildago answered that question.
#RebelsRecon are storm troopers clones of jango or just randoms recruited for the empire? How many years after revenge of the sith?

He explained that the clones during the Clone Wars were bred to age more quickly than normal humans, and since we are about five years before Episode IV in Star Wars Rebels, all the clone troopers would have been retired by now.
“[Clonetroopers] have been replaced by recruits who are fervently patriotic and loyal to the Empire — men and women who believe in the cause of the Empire and have signed up to be Stormtroopers.”
This sort of brakes the old canon, but not completely. It’s been said in the past that conscripts and clones make up the Stormtrooper army, but it’s good to now have this little bit of information solidified.
Congratulations to Dookers for having his question answered, and I will certainly paying attention to future Q&As from Rebels Recon. You can catch to the whole Rebels Recon insider above.
