Just when I thought I had found the most obscure Star Wars show in Rebellion, I stumbled upon Star Wars Forces of Destiny. A series of short episodes, ala Groot (though this is from 2017), covering random points in the timeline. Some are so minuscule that it’s technically a bonus scene from a movie.

I don’t blame you if you’ve never heard of Star Wars Resistance. It’s more obscure; I only discovered it by searching through the vast swath of Star Wars content on Disney+. It’s the only series I know of that deals with anything related to the events of the newest trilogy (at time of writing) and seems the closest to a traditional children’s show.
The Book of Boba Fett seemed like an outlier when I considered it for review. A strange tangent for the Star Wars universe to explore. In the grand scheme of the current version of the universe (I’m sure the no-longer-canon books had him a ton), Boba Fett is a blip.
Star Wars Rebels mostly escaped my radar during its 2014-2018 run, but it was a positive surprise to explore now. Despite feeling like this franchise is now racing towards oversaturation (if it has not already reached it), Star Wars television shows have—for apparently a long time—been mostly solid little pieces of media.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is a show hard to review as its own thing. While lately a good chunk of Star Wars is an act of accounting for missing parts in the timeline and universe, Kenobi has especially little space to experiment—its plot is so heavily stuck by continuity that there are practically no surprises to be had. We know who can and cannot die in any scene; even people who don’t know Star Wars well will have a general idea of what will happen in this plot.
Perhaps the most notable thing about Andor is how immediately it establishes itself as different from the usual Star Wars fare. What little I’ve seen of more recent Mandalorian projects suggests this isn’t an isolated affair, but it is to me.
It’s been a long time since the first season of The Mandalorian came out. And, while I finish tackling reviewing some of the newer Disney+ Star Wars entries, let’s look back at what worked in the first three episodes and how much the series has (or hasn’t) changed.
Tales of the Jedi is the newest addition to what I’m calling “The Clone Wars Cartoons.” The subsection of Star Wars content using the same animation style, (usually) short-form pacing, and politically dense writing. My experience with it has mostly been reviewing The Bad Batch and some early viewing of the Clone Wars cartoon and its long-ago movie.
It’s time to go back four years and look at an old article Brandon Scott wrote about May The Fourth.
Two years or so ago, I ragged on this movie’s ill-thought-out scene and wished for a bolder storytelling decision. My opinion on this has not changed—and I’m still a little annoyed about it.
