Haven’t seen the new movie yet, but the Clone Wars television cartoon featured some of the best Star Wars storytelling of recent years, especially the season 5 Darth Maul arc. Star Wars Rebels is watchable but not quite as good, though moving towards climax now with Thrawn as the main antagonist. Chopper is probably my all-time favorite Star Wars character.
I think Rebels is every bit as good as Clone Wars. I haven’t caught any of the new season yet but I’m eager for it to hit blu-ray. The Rebels creators get Star Wars a lot more than our recent film creators do.
