During my recent trip to Hollywood, I discovered that there are many different Star Wars shows that are available to watch. These shows range from the very popular animated series, LEGO Star Wars, to the much more recent movies like The Force Awakens and The Mandalorian. I decided to rank the 10 best Star Wars shows available to watch today.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Despite its early missteps, the animated series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" is a fantastic retelling of the classic "Star Wars" stories. The story follows Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano as they travel through the final years of the Galactic Republic. This series also introduced fans to Darth Maul, a ruthless criminal from the planet Dathomir.
The Clone Wars is a classic Star Wars tale that explores the clones' relationship with the Jedi and the Jedi's relationship with the clones. The story also focuses on the growth of Anakin and Ahsoka as well as the morality of cloning. The series has some of the best Star Wars stories ever told.
The Clone Wars has a number of notable villains. General Jedi Master Pong Krell is one of the more hated characters in the series, largely because he has low regard for clones.
General Grievous is another compelling villain. As a clone, he is capable of wielding multiple dual-bladed lightsabers. During his heyday, he was the most powerful Jedi in the galaxy.
Aside from Darth Maul, the series also introduced fans to new characters. Ashoka Tano became an iconic character in the "Star Wars" universe. She became an important figure in the series and later appeared in other Star Wars series.
The Clone Wars also introduced a new clone trooper, Fives. He has had a rough life. He is the second-in-command of Anakin. He has survived several hardships throughout the series. He also discovers that all of the clone troopers have inhibitor chips, which will turn them against the Jedi.
During its first season, The Mandalorian topped all other "Star Wars" series in total viewing time. The series drew 5.42 billion minutes of viewing time in seven weeks. This was the first time a Marvel or Star Wars series reached the billion-minute mark.
The season 2 finale was action-packed and emotional. It revealed Din Djarin's true identity, which was a revelation and unexpected ending for the show. It also added to the character's growth and emotional development.
"The Mandalorian" is a space western series, but it's more than just a "Star Wars" story. Throughout its run, it's been a cultural phenomenon. It's been nominated for six Primetime Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe. It has also been nominated for nineteen Visual Effects Society Awards and thirty-three Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards. It's one of the best shows of its type in history.
The Mandalorian is also the first original series to be released on Disney Plus. It's available worldwide on Disney+ and on a number of other streaming services. It's also been a success on the streaming platform. It has a relatively small subscriber base, but it still drew huge numbers. Disney Plus is currently the largest streaming service in the world with 26.5 million subscribers worldwide.
The Mandalorian drew a 93% average rating for its first two seasons. It has won six Primetime Emmy Awards, one Golden Globe, and one Visual Effects Society Award. It has also been nominated for fourteen Creative Arts Emmys and one British Academy Television Award.
"The Mandalorian" was one of the first live action Star Wars series. It was released during a time when Star Wars was in everyone's mind. Its mission was to give a new spin to familiar material, while also offering a fresh take on classic genre films.
During its run, The Mandalorian was the most in-demand show worldwide. In fact, during its first season, the show was one of the best-reviewed "Star Wars" shows in history. It was also the best-rated "Star Wars" series on Rotten Tomatoes.
The Book of Boba Fett
During the second season of The Mandalorian, Boba Fett is revealed to have survived. This was a revelation that came in the post-credits sequence of the season. Now, he's a part of a new live-action series titled The Book of Boba Fett. It will be released on Disney+ in December of 2021. The series is directed by Robert Rodriguez and will be starring Pedro Pascal. The series will be a spinoff of The Mandalorian.
Boba Fett has long been a cultural icon. He was a character in the original "Star Wars" trilogy and has appeared in many other movies, TV shows, and comic books. He's appeared in the CGI animated series The Clone Wars and was a regular in the Expanded Universe, which was also a series of books and comics.
In The Book of Boba Fett, Boba Fett returns to Jabba the Hutt's former territory on Tatooine. He becomes a crime lord. In the show, Boba Fett meets Fennec Shand, a mercenary who specializes in navigating the galaxy's underworld. Together, they are attacked by assassins. They're also hired by two Gamorrean guards. But then, they visit the cantina at the Sanctuary on Mos Espa, where they encounter Garsa Fwip. They're then chased by an assassin on a rooftop. They get away. But when they arrive at the cantina, Fennec Shand captures one of the assassins. Afterwards, Fennec and Boba Fett meet two more Gamorrean guards.
Boba Fett was a character in the original "Stars Wars" trilogy, but only appeared in five minutes of screentime. He's also a character in the Expanded Universe, which included books, comics, and video games. Boba Fett is an important character in the franchise and has a bounty hunting career in The Empire Strikes Back. In the comics, he helped Din Djarin rescue Grogu from Moff Gideon. He also played a role in the War of the Bounty Hunters. He was a bounty hunter in Return of the Jedi. Boba Fett escaped from Sarlaac in the film and wore Mandalorian armor to escape. He was eventually buried in a Sarlaac pit for 1000 years.
The Mandalorian season 2 is set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi. The show is known for its Easter eggs and returning fan favorites. The book's main conflict involves unsanctioned operations by a crime syndicate. It's unclear who the main villain is.
But the best parts of "The Book of Boba Fett" are the ones that barely feature Boba. The series's main timeline plot devolves into something more akin to the Avatar structure. In the finale, the two main characters engage in ideological conflict. The main conflict lacks a clear central villain, but "The Mandalorian" delivers some of its best individual storytelling in the later chapters.
In the first season of The Mandalorian, Boba was briefly featured. He was introduced in a teasing cameo. He later made a cameo in the second season as well. Boba Fett also made a cameo appearance in the first episode of Disney+'s Solo: A Star Wars Story. Boba Fett and Fennec Shand are also featured in Under the Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett, a 21-minute video. The trailer shows archival footage, interviews with the cast, and more. The trailer also includes interviews with Lucasfilm staff. It's not an official part of The Mandalorian, but it does include some new archival footage.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Whether you're a longtime fan or a newcomer, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is sure to thrill you. A new cast of characters, new stars, and a twist in the tale set the stage for a new chapter in the saga.
The new characters include Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), a tortured princeling who is also a fanatic and a disillusioned Stormtrooper (John Boyega). There's also a new villain, Saw Gerrera, the Guardian of the Whills, a group of violent Partisans.
The film also features a surprisingly effective opening scene. Kylo stops a blaster bolt in midair and we learn that he's a member of the Resistance. There's also an impressive climactic space battle on an unfinished second Death Star, which is still a memorable scene today.
The film's biggest achievement isn't so much its story as it is the way in which it presents it. It's an incredibly nimble tale of good and evil that weaves together familiar iconography with a surprising twist.
There's also a great final scene, a brilliant lightsaber duels, and some nice character touches. However, the throne room fight is the best combat sequence in the entire series, a feat of cinematic virtuosity.
The Force Awakens' cleverness grows tiresome, however. There's a lot of good things to see in the film, from the visuals to the special effects, but the final scene has a repetitive feel.
Forces of Destiny
STAR WARS: FORCES OF DESTINY is an animated series that follows Princess Leia and Ahsoka Tano, two of the most popular characters from the Star Wars films. The series premiered on July 3rd and will be followed by the second season, which will debut this fall.
The series is produced by Lucasfilm Animation and is released through their YouTube channel. The series is a collection of short animated micro-adventures that connect with the larger Star Wars mythology. The shorts are only a couple of minutes long and focus on the female characters from the films.
The series has an impressive visual style that makes it hard to resist. Despite the high budget and impressive visuals, the show does have its shortcomings. The lack of a meaningful story for the characters to invest in makes the show a little confusing at times. The show also struggles to make the live-action antics as exciting as they are on the big screen.
Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is part of Disney's Consumer Products franchise expansion. The series is targeted at younger audiences and includes a Hasbro toy line. In addition, the show includes a series of books aimed at youth. The show has a distinct visual aesthetic and is produced by Genndy Tartakovsky, who also directed the Star Wars: Clone Wars and Samurai Jack series.
The show is the first two-dimensional animated series to come from Lucasfilm since 2003. However, the show doesn't do as much as it could, as the shorts are just under three minutes in length. The show also suffers from poor animation and disconnected stories.
The series also has a slew of good versus evil themes. The Jedi is a good example. It's a thrill ride from the opening scroll and pays homage to sci-fi's past.
The Star Wars: Forces of Destiny has its good versus evil themes, but it also has its fair share of Star Wars craziness. The show includes a space battle, rampaging creatures, and good versus evil themes. In addition, it has a lot of fun scenes for fans.
During the course of its 75 episodes, Star Wars Rebels proved itself to be the most ambitious of all the Star Wars TV shows. It introduced a plethora of new characters, and took on familiar villains and elements from the Star Wars saga. It was a good show with a good message.
In the first season, Rebels was very family friendly. It introduced several new characters, including Ezra Bridger, an orphan who was adopted by Jedi Knight Kanan Jarrus. It also introduced an interesting alien race, the droids. But it also introduced several familiar characters from the original Star Wars trilogy. The show also included a handful of canonical characters, such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, and Jedi Masters Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan himself.
The pilot episode introduced the ensemble cast and set the tone for the series. The Star Wars music included some original trilogy melodies. It also featured a number of Easter eggs.
Rebels is a well-written show that captures the joy and awe of the original Star Wars movies. It incorporates many elements from the saga, including blazing hyperspace jumps, ship-to-ship combat, and laser flurries. The show also tackles important themes, such as Jedi fallout and the consequences of job-hopping.
In season 4, Rebels tied into the Mandalorian Civil War and brought back the Ghost crew to Lothal. It also tied into the new Rebel initiates and the Ryloth freedom fighters. The season finale was full of action and suspense, featuring a meeting between Darth Vader and Ahsoka Tano.
Rebels also incorporates elements from other Star Wars shows and films, including Saw Gerera from Rogue One and Yoda from The Clone Wars. The show also uses a coded message crafted by Obi-Wan Kenobi to create a philosophical theme that pervades the series.
Rebels has many fan favorites and is also an intriguing take on Jedi lore. It features exciting action, great visuals, and a fun and positive message. It is definitely one of the best Star Wars shows.
There are lots of other great shows in the Star Wars canon, but Rebels is the best. It is well-written, populated by intriguing characters, and features action that is photo-realistic and exciting.
The Bad Batch
Despite their apparent disdain for the Galactic Empire, The Bad Batch find themselves in a sea of change. They struggle to stay alive and find a new purpose. This group of genetically-mutated clones is tasked with mercenary missions. They meet several familiar characters from previous Star Wars shows.
The show will also introduce viewers to a new live-action character, Fennec Shand. This new character appears to be at odds with Clone Force 99, although it is unclear what his role in the show will be. The show is set decades after the events of the original Star Wars trilogy. The show will also feature cameos from familiar characters from other parts of the "Star Wars" franchise.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch is an American animated television series produced by Lucasfilm Animation. It is a continuation of the "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" series. The show's first four episodes can be watched through the first four episodes of "The Clone Wars" Season 7. The series is written by Jennifer Corbett, and it was created by Dave Filoni. The series is based on the Star Wars franchise, and it is the sixth and final installment in the "Star Wars" animated series series.
The Bad Batch follows a group of genetically-mutated clones as they take on mercenary missions and struggle to survive. They meet familiar characters from other parts of the Star Wars saga, including Captain Rex. They also encounter a group of police droids.
Despite their initial resistance, the members of the Bad Batch take on a mission to rescue Avi Singh from the Empire. After the mission is successful, the group finds themselves trapped on a planet, where they face a new enemy: the Grand Moff Tarkin.
Tarkin is a cutthroat leader of Empirical forces. He sees the potential of conscripted soldiers on Kamino, and he wants to test the abilities of the Bad Batch. He also wants to replace the Clones with an Imperial army.
The Bad Batch's story takes place after the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. It can be followed by viewers without extensive knowledge of the "Star Wars" franchise.
Star Wars: Visions
Among the many offerings in the Star Wars saga, "Star Wars: Visions" is the first major stab at formal anime production. As part of an effort to expand the franchise's horizons, the Star Wars galaxy far, far away was given a visual makeover by a group of leading Japanese animation studios. Each of these studios was given a free hand to come up with a unique take on George Lucas' saga. With some help from the Star Wars execs at Lucasfilm, these studios came up with nine animated shorts. The results were a hit with critics. The series was released on September 22, 2021. With its blend of galactic lore and visual storytelling, "Star Wars: Visions" is a must-watch for fans of the saga.
"Star Wars: Visions" is lauded for its inclusion of a number of original stories, many of which are inspired by the original trilogy. In addition to the original trilogy, these stories range from prequels to a number of other Star Wars movies, including "The Phantom Menace," "The Last Jedi," and "The Force Awakens." These stories are all presented in a single volume, which is available for streaming exclusively on Disney+. The anthology series also includes nine "mini-movies" - short films whose length is in the low double-digits. In addition to "Tatooine Rhapsody" and "The Village Bride," there are also "The Elder," "The Twins," "The T-0-B1," and "The One." Each of these shorts are a fun look at some of the lesser-known characters in the galaxy far, far away. In all, "Star Wars: Visions" represents the most diverse Star Wars franchise ever, with several of its most celebrated characters appearing in the anthology.
The Star Wars: Visions collection of short films, which will be released in installments over the course of the next five years, is a big deal because it marks the beginning of a new genre of animated television shows and movies. In addition to its short films, the series will also include animated versions of previously released television series and films. A large number of the shorts are also produced by major Japanese animation studios. Some of these companies have previously produced anime series in their own right. The series is a good way to see the best of both worlds, combining the visual splendor of Japanese animation with the familiar themes and characters of Star Wars.
In addition to the aforementioned "Star Wars: Visions," several other projects are in the works. For example, there's a series of animated shorts inspired by the "Star Wars" universe, which will be produced by a number of leading Japanese animation studios. While this project is not yet publically announced, we do know that the series will premiere on Disney+ on September 22.
Star Wars Resistance
STAR WARS RESISTANCE is an American animated television series that premiered on Disney Channel on October 7, 2018. It was developed by Lucasfilm Animation's Dave Filoni and Athena Portillo, who previously worked on the popular Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It is produced by Lucasfilm Animation and Disney XD. It follows a young pilot named Kazuda "Kaz" Xiono, who is recruited by Resistance Commander Poe Dameron to go on a top-secret mission to investigate the First Order.
The series takes place six months before the events of The Force Awakens. A number of characters are introduced in the first season, including Captain Doza, a former Imperial Captain who is now being courted by the First Order. The Resistance movement is attempting to prevent the First Order from gaining control of the galaxy. Kaz Xiono is a young New Republic pilot who is recruited by Resistance Commander Poe Dameron. He's assigned a secret mission on a remote station. However, he is not prepared for the mission's danger.
The series follows the New Republic's Resistance movement as it races to identify the First Order's threat. Kaz Xiono is stationed aboard a large aircraft refueling station called Colossus, and is being sent on a top-secret mission. While Kaz is on the station, he encounters a series of dangerous villains. He also encounters friend and foe. He must prove himself in a high-risk race to survive. He and his team must also sabotage the engines of the Fireball, a Star Destroyer. However, Kaz's real passion is flying. He mistakenly believes that he is the best pilot in the known galaxy. He's also attracted to the ship's crew, who he assumes are part of the Resistance. He also becomes betrayed by a collaborationist Gran vendor named Lechee.
While Kaz is on Colossus, he discovers that the station's owner is an old enemy of the Resistance. The First Order has a stake in the station and is tightening its grip. Kaz must make a decision: stay with his Colossus crew or return to the Resistance. He decides to return. In the meantime, he meets and becomes friends with a Nikto engineer named Nena. He's also tasked with investigating the mysterious owner of Colossus, who has been working with the First Order.
Kaz Xiono becomes entangled in a series of adventures that take him all over the galaxy. He's partnered with another Resistance operative, Torra Doza, to rescue alien prisoners. They also become entangled with marauding pirates. But Kaz's true mission is to find out who the First Order is working with.

LEGO Star Wars animated specials
Despite some major misfires, Star Wars cartoons have found success on the small screen. From The Clone Wars to Star Wars: Rebels, Disney and LEGO brought some of the best Star Wars stories to the small screen.
Star Wars: Clone Wars was one of the first big budget CG animated efforts from Lucasfilm. It was originally planned for release as a theatrical movie and later as the beginning of a television series. However, a low rating and dwindling promotion from the studio led to its cancellation. The series was revived years later and now is available on Disney+.
Star Wars: Rebels is a riveting animated series that explores life on the run. Its modern design upgrades and the cast's diversity make it a compelling watch. It's also a fun tribute to the original trilogy. The story line is intriguing and it engages younger viewers in a way that the original films do not.
LEGO Star Wars: Summer Vacation was a summer special that was not canon, but it did have some great moments. It also had a lot of iconic LEGO Star Wars humor. The characters included Ben Solo, Ghost Obi-Wan and Emperor Palpatine. It was also a great showcase for several LEGO Star Wars characters.
Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is an animated short collection featuring some of the most powerful women in the Star Wars universe. It's produced by Genndy Tartakovsky, who directed and produced the original Clone Wars series. However, it's more pandering than empowering.
