I’m a big fan of the original Star Wars movies and of the universe itself, but after the new trilogy, I thought Lucas had completely lost his touch for storytelling or simply didn’t care about the franchise anymore. Thus, when I heard about the Clone Wars series, I assumed the worst: a cartoon, meant primarily for children, with Lucas at the helm? No thanks.
But I was wrong. Completely wrong. Clone Wars is fantastically done. It’s far better than the New Trilogy, and actually makes me hopeful for Episode VII.
Yes, it’s a children’s show, but it has a lot going for it:
Regardless of your age, if you like the world of Star Wars at all, give Clone Wars a go. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
