Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Written by:
Star Wars: The Clone Wars

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:

  • The episodic plots are quite entertaining–they’re varied, well designed, and perfectly paced
  • The over-arching plot advances steadily (you don’t have to trudge through long stretches where nothing of any greater importance happens)
  • The characters are simplistic yet developed enough for you to actually care what happens (this is no Game of Thrones, but the cast gets the job done)
  • It’s surprisingly adult in many ways: dark themes, character deaths, realistic consequences, and the slow-mounting tension that, as we know, will result in the complete collapse of the Republic

 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.
