Why The Clone Wars Is Star Wars At Its Best

Star Wars popularity might be at an all-time high. With the new trilogy concluded, Disney + wrapping up The Mandalorian with future series on the table, Star Wars is everywhere. Due to this, it has been my personal observation that The Clone Wars might be greatly overlooked. This wonderfully crafted series is peak Star Wars. Featuring characters we know and love, plus new ones, all in a universe sized war. This series is simply fantastic and in my opinion - Star Wars at its best. This video was made with as much love and respect to the franchise as possible, with the hopes of making @HelloGreedo @Star Wars Explained @Star Wars Comics @starwarsstudio100 @Star Wars Theory and all those channels I respect, proud.

  • This show and the mando are objdctively the only two well written pieces of cinematic media in the entire canon. The prequels are terribly written but riding the back of what could be a great story. The OT is too simple a story for the scope of its now massive universe and often times feels heavily dated by todays cinema standards, and the ST is a trainwreack from start to finish story-wise, based more on developing a standalone arc than a new pathway for the rest of the series to follow after, and with very little regard for the years of lore and character development that predated it. With that said, i think its important to remember that nothing has to be well written or thorough or perfect for you to enjoy it. I personally find that many people who grew up on OT cant stand much of the rest of the sw universe, aside from usually episode 7 (aka episode 4 in disney clothing) prequel enjoyers tend to be the most open and welcoming, but tend to have a superiority complex based around being able to comsume all the bs in the sw universe. Its not a flex, you just grew up on bad writing and have learned to enjoy it (same tho cant lie). Sequel trilogy people tend to be newcomers or people very isolated in the era of star wars they first encountered, with this new trilogy being more about the spectacle and adventure than actual continuity and lore for them. All this to say, everyone likes something in star wars that isnt good. Because its all flawed, and very flawed at that. And now that we understand eachother and can accept out differences, its time to make kotor and old republic movies/tv shows. Thanks for coming to my ted talk, we got darth revan in the back if you want a signature

  • The prequels are the outside of the house. The Clone Wars is the foundation. The OT is the interior rooms, and Rebels is decorations. The sequels are the infestation of rats that shit everywhere in your basement bathroom that noone uses.

  • When this show came out in 2008, I ignored it entirely. I did not care for Star Wars or ANYTHING related. I damn near hated it. Fast foward to last year, I saw all the movies on Disney+. I LIKED Star Wars but never really felt that passion. Fast forward again to January, my brother who is even less of a nerd than me tells me that he likes The Mandalorian. It SHOCKED me that he said I should watch and my first thought was “damn it was that good?” At this point I’ve also seen some of the ridiculously passionate reactions towards Luke’s appearance in the finale. I give the show a watch and I’m HOOKED! An episode that stood out to me was chapter 13. From that little appearance, I was immediately hooked onto Ahsoka’s character and I wanted to see more of her. And I knew just where to go. Star Wars The Clone Wars was LEGENDARY. Ahsoka Tano is the main reason why. Believe it or not, I actually love The Legend of Korra and I actually find Korra to be a vastly deeper character than Aang and the creators do this the same way Dave crafted Ahsoka: by making their flaws apparent to the point where the audience isn’t supposed to like them. Only to then make them grow so much that by the end of the series, you actually can’t believe that at one point you disliked them. All that with not ONE live action appearance. Now I understand why she is an extreme fan favorite and why people went NUTS over her live action debut. And she’s only a PIECE of what makes the Clone Wars so great. Then there’s Anakin’s honest to God redemption. When I first saw the prequels my thoughts were “This mf is an honest to God villain, how did the order not figure this out?” But seeing him in TCW, as someone who showed compassion and concern (the two things the Jedi were SORELY lacking) and all of a sudden I understand him. Not as an edge-lord, but as someone who would even go to the Dark Side to protect the people he loves even though he is not supposed to love anyone. I’ve gone on long enough, my point is, the movies made me LIKE Star Wars (the sequels damn near ruined that). The Mandalorian and The Clone Wars made me LOVE Star Wars and I’ve barely scratched the surface. If I see Dave Filoni’s name anywhere near SW content, you can bet your ass I’ll be right there, ready for quality storytelling and characters.

  • I am a long time Star Wars fan and like many others was grossly disappointed by the sequels in numerous ways, stupid characters (Finn), really stupid characters (Finn) and turning Luke into a big pussy. Never knew about clone wars and rebels until a few months ago. I started watching clone wars and binge watched the entire series in 3 weeks. Then followed with binge watching rebels. I think the Anakin/Ahsoka story is the best of star wars and also agree that Ahsoka is the best character along with Vader. Clone Wars is fantastic and perfectly illustrates the fall of Anakin. I can safely say I have never cried during any movie, however, when Ahsoka folded up Anakins hand I did choke up. A beautiful scene given the story, the expressions, and the music. The end of the Clone Wars was truly phenomenal however my favorite scene in all of star wars was the arrival of Vader at Malachor
