Somber. If I had to describe the final episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, it would be somber. We’ve known for fifteen years how the Clone Wars ends, and we’ve known for five years how it ends for Ashoka and Rex. They escape, Maul escapes, and don’t meet again until Rebels. What I wasn’t expecting was how they all get out of Order 66, and it rivals the best the movies have to offer. Or video games, for that matter.
To quote from Tony Stark, “part of the journey is the end.” Star Wars fans knew going into The Clone Wars what to expect, how this story would end. Anakin’s transformation into Darth Vader; the Jedi forced into hiding, and the victory of the Sith. Now, after all these years of waiting, we’re in the final arc of The Clone Wars, the Siege of Mandalore. And by the Force, is it beautiful.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7, Episode 8 Review After struggling to find its footing, the Ashoka Alone arc finally manages to do so in its final chapter. I’ve … Continue Reading What it Means to Be a Jedi
Remember how I said that I was looking forward to seeing what happens in the next episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars? I take it back; so far, this arc has been a snooze fest for me! Which is a shame, as I wanted Ashoka’s return to be this big thing. It’s the lost chapter in the life of one of Star Wars’ best characters, and something I was looking forward to. Yet the story with the Martez Sisters feels like it’s going in a circle with little growth.
You’d think that an arc that brings back one of The Clone Wars breakout characters would hit the ground running. Last week, our first look at Ashoka post-Jedi crashed; quite literally, too. She crashes in front of the shop of two young sisters trying to get out of their shady life. As a result of their meeting, Ashoka gets a dose of how life’s not black-and-white like the Jedi say. Sometimes, it can be a gray galaxy, and Ashoka has to adapt to it.

If I could decide when Star Wars is at its best, though, it’s when its doing thing: blowing stuff up in visually spetacular fights. And the latest episode of Star Wars: the Clone Wars not only does that, but hearkens back to early days of the show. In other words, it feels just like old times.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7, Episode 2 Review Of all the Clone Troopers that we’ve met in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Captain Rex is by far my … Continue Reading Captain Rex’s Rescue Mission
In the Season 7 Premiere of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Captain Rex begins to suspect that his friend and fellow trooper, Echo, may be alive and in Separatist hands. To get to the bottom of things, he enlists the aid of the misfit Clone Squad 99, AKA the Bad Batch.
This is so cool!
After months of waiting, the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is about to premiere on Disney+. So before I review it, I want to reflect on my experience watching the series during its run.
I’m SO looking forward to blogging and review every last episode of the final season next month. No matter how long it takes
