Three decades after the Empire's defeat, a new threat arises in the militant First Order. Stormtrooper defector Finn and the scavenger Rey are caught up in the Resistance's search for the missing Luke Skywalker.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the mysterious Darth Vader.
Chronicling the events that took place between Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005), The Clone Wars follows the wartime days of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda. The Clone Wars bridges the gap between The Original and Prequel Trilogies of The Star Wars Saga and brings new characters to the forefront of Star Wars canon, including Anakin's apprentice Ahsoka Tano, and Captain Rex.Written by
Dave Filoni, and first season head writer Henry Gilroy had originally assumed that Obi-Wan and Anakin would only make occasional appearances on the show, because most of their Clone Wars activities had already been told in printed work, and in Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003). Instead, the main characters were to be a Twi'lek Jedi, called Sendak, and his Togruta apprentice Ashla (later to become Ahsoka) who fought piracy and mercenaries around the galaxy. They would team up with a Han Solo like smuggler called Cad, his mistress Lupé, and their Gungan strongman Lunker. Another idea was to stick to a couple of recurring locations, not unlike the television show Firefly (2002), and keep landscapes to a minimum, for rendering and conceptualization reasons. However, they soon found out that George Lucas didn't intend to keep The Clone Wars small. See more »

This was a series I grew up with, but I'll try to stay objective with it.
The animated series - can we say that? - evolved/grew up during the years. At the beginning it was really kid-friendly, but, years after year, season after season it started to be filled with quite gory/scary stuff I'd rather not show to a 6-7 years old kid.
I don't think that's a negative side though, as this series managed to explain many empty points we had about either some events occurred in the movies, or the whole mysticism of the Force, a really good expansion of the saga -directly came from its inventor George Lucas - that helps fans understand better the star wars.
As I already said, the series is not completely childish, and adults could enjoy it as well.
Now, to the reason of why this didn't get a 10/10: the first season, and a few episodes we meet on the way that aren't really important story arcs. I must say that, despite season one is the only one I have on DVD, I don't really like it, has not many strong story arcs, as instead the other seasons have, also all seasons include several single episodes that are put just to fill the episode list. But yet this is saved by the absolute supremacy of the story arcs.
