A quick Star Wars question..

Prev1
O.k. I want to binge watch one of the Star Wars cartoon thingies on Netflix. (In order to enhance my enjoyment of this game.. And thus making this sun appropriate GD post)

So many people have recommended this I have to try.. But I have a question.

Apparently there is a Jedi one and a Clone one.

Which should we watch?

  • There's the clone wars and rebels. Clone wars comes first so watch that first.
    My name is cosmicturtle333, aka CT-333, aka Threes.
  • If you want to study it for the game then definitely clone wars as there are currently no rebels heroes in the game yet.

  • It took me about 5 tries to get into Clone Wars and then I binge watched it over a week. Really good. Voice cast is kind of amazing for a made-for-tv cartoon (ex: Tim Curry, Liam Neeson).

    Holy crap.. Thanks!

    Going to fire it up with this advice.

    Cheers!
  • The entire Clone Wars animated series (6 seasons if I recall) is on Netflix. The first season is a little weak but it picks up steam as it goes and some of the pieces about Palpatine's behind the scenes manipulation, Order 66, and the Jedi Order are really interesting. There's some great characters threaded through the show as well.

    Also Anakin is 9001x more effective and less whiny than in the movies. So there's that.
  • Oh hey thanks to everyone for the quick response.. I was just shocked by the quality of the "voice'

    I really appreciate it!
  • Make sure you watch the clone wars movie first.

    Oh, yeah there's some big ticket actors and great voice actors involved. David Tennant, Seth Green, Jennifer Hale, Ron Perlman, George Takei, Mark Hamill, Simon Pegg and a ton more cool people make cameo and limited run appearances.

    Even without the star names, the main cast are really well voiced (in my opinion) as well.

    The clone wars is great, but the episodes are out of order how they aired them. You'll notice characters that have previously died in a new episode. I have the correct chronological list of episodes to watch if you want haha. Still a great watch if you're a Star Wars fan.

    I don't know that they were intended to be watched in chronological order. I've watched the series both in air date order and chronological order, not sure which I prefer. Dealers choice I guess.
  • Clone wars was pretty good. The first season was kinda of iffy. And there's things about the story that I just plain didn't like. But on the average once I got to season 3 and onward, it was pretty great.
    Evil will always triumph, because good is dumb!

    I've watched the clone wars movie it's good. I've tried watching the series multiple times and just can't get into it. However everyone I know that's watched it says it's great. Maybe I just need to grind through the first season like @medetec said. I keep quitting like a few episodes in so I guess I just need to give it a chance

    Regarding suggested episodes to watch, I will simply state that some of my favorites are often excluded. All that means is some episodes work for others and some don't. And there definitely some bad ones, but even in those are some cool tid bits how the universe works.

    I personally recommend watching all episodes. I did this and got stuck a few times due to bad episodes, but I believe it enhanced my overall experience.

    Yeah I'll think I'll watch them all in order from start to finish. I've watched a lot of them over the years of the 'must see' ones that have I've read that all fans need to watch. Time to watch them all I guess

    And I think clone wars is better especially for this game
  • Wow.. O.k. I lucked out and watched the Movie first, (I kept thinking "Jesus, this is a long show..) :D

    People are right, it's not bad at all.. I kept smiling and saying "Look it's Lumi!" And that's an IG-88 and That's an IG-100.. It totally satisfied getting my nerd on and annoyed others. :#

    Why is Ashoka not uber in this game?...I have her at 7* and gear 7.5/6 and now want her to be fast and really good.. :/

    Great reccomendation, I will watch the whole series next as time permits.

    Thanks everyone!

    I also just began the clone wars after hearing how good they were supposed to be. I'm maybe 5 episodes into the first season and I'm actually enjoying them. So if they get even better i will be quite pleased. I also didn't realize the voice talent involved. I'm even more happy to watch them now lol. We will have to compare notes as we get further.

    Very cool.. I just watched the movie and S1:EP1 and kind of am looking forward to the rest.

    I appreciate Rex now, just not in game. :D

    Haha same. I am ALSO watching all the movies again lol (I'm a glutton I suppose) and am up to episode V so I'm right there with you lol. I felt the first ep was alright but they seem to get better as it goes to me...or maybe my inner fanboy is just in a state of bliss. Can't be sure...but my OCD won't let me skip episodes so I'm in it for the long haul.
  • @BentWookie super late to the party. But prolly catching you just as you're making your way to rebels haha. Rex and Ashoka really should be top tier in this game!

    Just skip to where Maul comes back
    Everything from than on is gold.
  • That is a fact. Maul and savage vs sidious was prolly the best fight in the whole series. Really wish Yoda had more fight scenes, pwning ventress was just a tease!

    Hmm, as soon as done with the next two seasons of X-Files I may have to finally watch this clone war stuff. I'm a bit more interested in some of the newer star wars books though
  • Where can I find all episodes of Rebels... Legally preferably.
