The series started the same year that the video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (2008) was released. Both this series and the game introduced an apprentice (Ashoka in the series and Starkiller in the game) to Anakin/Darth Vader. Both apprentices hold their lightsabers in the Shien reverse grip. The year Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (2010) was released both Starkiller's clone and Ashoka began duel wielding lightsabers. Sam Witwer voiced both Darth Maul on this series and Starkiller in the games, who also share several similarities. See more »
AMAZING!!!!! Star Wars is back and GL is back on form!
I have been watching this series since it came out, and thank god i taped them as i have watched each episode up to 4 times each now.
Absolutely awesome series! I was sceptical at first, and it started off a little ropey but now i'm hooked. I'm up to episode 6 so far, and every episode has literally gotten better and better and better.
Evry episode that has come out since the movie i have said this is the best episode so far, and thats a good thing! I believe there are meant to be a hundred or more episodes of this show? I hope thats so, and i wish i had them all right now! I would not be seen for weeks.
Anakin is great in this, better than the live action films IMO. And Asoka is pretty cool too, although she got off to a bumpy start.
In fact i only have a few subtle gripes, Droid voices, though i'm getting used to them. A bit short each episode, but at least it leaves me wanting more. Which is good. Lack of John Williams music throughout, and the last episode had drum n bass in it, which was bizarre and unwelcome! But still, these are only minor gripes, and I know the creators are working on making it better for series 2 according to the force-casts, so hopefully if these little gripes get fixed, the show should be perfect.
Oh and as for the 2 reviews on here that are super negative, and say its not for the true fan, well, I AM THE TRUE FAN! And i like it! Sounds like a couple of nay-sayers to me, jumping on the Lucas hate bandwagon. Wouldn't surprise me if they hadn't even watched an episode of this show at all. Guess thats the internet for ya.
Anyway, keep em coming! Keep em great! Adjust as necessary and Star Wars will be great once more for the next generation. And the old one.
