Fanatics behind the Star Wars Franchise celebrate May 4th internationally. “May The 4th Be With You” is a common phrase known by hundreds of millions worldwide. Continuously new projects surrounding this universe are announced after the Disney Company purchased Star Wars from LucasFilm. Below we’ve comprised some the three best television series available for supporters of this franchise, with some being older and others being more recent.
The Clone Wars
Our 1st entry is a notable television series for any Star Wars fanatic. The Clone Wars takes place between Episode II & Episode III, centring around characters like Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. When this television show was first released in 2008, groundbreaking CGI was implemented to create a versatile and emotional storyline. Fans followed the Jedi Order throughout the final stages of the Clone Wars, watching Youngling’s like Ahsoka Tano turn into a formidable Jedi Knight. It also saw a greater insight into how Anakin Skywalker turned into Darth Vader.
Star Wars: Rebels, was a direct sequel to The Clone Wars series. It centred around the timeline in-between “Revenge of the Sith” and “A New Hope”, showcasing the Rebellion with new members. This included Ezra Bridger, another Youngling that would become a Jedi Fighter with the assistance of a forgotten Master. Together this Apprentice and Master work towards restoring peace in the Galaxy, meeting Ahsoka Tano as an adult woman. Correlations between the Clone Wars and Rebels don’t end there, with fans eventually seeing both Ahsoka Tano and Darth Vader battle each other. Considering they were once Apprentice and Master themselves as Jedi’s, this was an emotional moment for genuine supporters.
Our final recommendation includes “Star Wars: Resistance”, which centres around Poe Cameron in his early stages as a spy for the Rebellion. Younger audiences behind the newest trilogy meet additional members of in the resistance, including Kazuda Xiono. Storylines are minimal but bridge the gaps between Episode 7, 8, and 9. We should mention that its pacing is slow for the first half and then quickly ramps up. Dedicated fans might find themselves challenged to make it through the opening half.
