You’ve Never Watched Star Wars: The Clone Wars?
They’re positioning it like the saga between “The Skywalker Saga” films.
And if you’ve ever wondered how a good and noble warrior named Anakin Skywalker made the final slide toward the acts that made him Darth Vader; those hints are there, too.
But, beyond all of that, “The Seige of Mandalore” is the Clone Wars movie Star Wars fans have been waiting for since Obi-Wan said:
I was once a Jedi Knight, the same as your father.”
However, this serial tells a story that few know – the end of the Mandalorian regime.
And it’s presented as a movie in four parts, following Ahsoka Tano through the end of the Republic and the beginning of the Empire.
The first of those parts was posted on Disney+ plus this morning.
Below is just a taste of what we saw:
It blew me away.
And that is why I am telling all of you who have held off watching The Clone Wars animated TV show on Disney+ to give it a shot as it nears it’s close.
For anyone who loved The Prequels, here is the connective tissue you’ve waited for since you saw Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. If you enjoyed The Mandalorian, you will now understand “The Purge” – as mentioned by numerous characters in that Disney+ Star Wars live-action show.
Anyone who loved the Sequel Trilogy, you’ll see parallels between Anakin and Luke Skywalker (and Ben Solo, for that matter).

Finally, Original Trilogy fans, as I mentioned above, will finally get to see the most pivotal moments of The Clone Wars not shown on the big screen.
But most of all, it’s big, epic, swashbuckling, emotional — and NEW — Star Wars.
And if you’re a fan, that’s what you want.
