Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Who would have guessed battle droids could be so adorable?

Set between Episodes II and III (Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith), this show follows multiple Jedi (Anakin, Obi-Wan, Yoda, and many new faces) and their respective clone troopers as they attempt to convince the various planets and species in the galaxy to side with the Republic over the Separatists.

I’ve never been a die-hard Star Wars fan - I enjoyed watching the movies, but I’ve never really thought it would be worth my time to seek out any additional materials. I was wrong. This show is delightful. I especially love the detail and work that went into individualizing the clone soldiers, and expanding the viewers’ knowledge of inhabitants of the Star Wars universe. Also, as I said before, the battle droids are adorable. I kind of love them.
