Back in 2008, the Clone Wars film didn’t inspire huge confidence.
As the first strike against it, the story supplanted the popular 2003 Cartoon Network series by Genndy Tartakovsky. Second, the introduction of Anakin’s teen apprentice Ahsoka Tano alongside cartoonish elements such as Stinky the Hutt felt like a mismatch for the backstory of Darth Vader.
To many fans, the entire concept looked like a step in the wrong direction. Yet through deft writing that both respected and built upon the lore, the animated show that followed was a different story altogether.
Throughout its original six series run, the Clone Wars series delved deep into the characters of Ahsoka, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and many more. This much-needed development of the prequel era won the fandom over; so much so, that it’s not uncommon to hear fans say that the series enhances the prequels as a whole.
