I started watching the Clone Wars series recently and found I don't really like it.

I also wonder why this is on 10pm on Sundays. Could this just be lasting a season and getting dumped? Maybe something better will be on Disney Play.

This is dreadful.

Disney’s sure driving Star Wars into the ground, aren't they?

I dropped this within 10 minutes of the premiere. That was the slowest space battle / dogfight I've seen.

I thought Rebels started off a bit slow, but I felt it turned into a fairly engaging Star War story (for a cartoon) that added a nice bit of backstory to the main storyline. I have not watched the final season, though.

I hope Resistance surprises me, though I am not hopeful.

Rebels was okay from what I saw. I have the first two episodes of this sitting in my Prime Video app as I bought the season for cheap. I still need to watch them.

Rebels was exactly "ok"... not great and certainly not terrible. Lots of filler though.

The style of Resistance isn't my cup of tea... my son is watching it only because it's SW (and he's 10). While we'd get thru Rebels together, I have no desire to sit thru Resistance.

I haven’t felt the urge to even start.
I managed to get in on the season purchase what Amazon had it for $1.99. Might just wait and binge it all.

Rebels was about 20% good episodes and 80% filler and padding.

One issue I had with it was that the Ezra/Kanan dynamic was too close to Luke/Ben with the Jedi and apprentice thing going on. It would have been better if it didn't rehash the plot from the original Star Wars so closely.

Can we kill off the "hero" and just work w the others? Likely most annoying character ever (IMHO).

This was renewed back in January. I must’ve missed that.

Here are some highlights from Celebration: https://www.starwars.com/news/swcc-2...sistance-panel

I ended up bailing on this. I stuck through TCW and Rebels. But I just wasn’t feeling this one.

I watched the first five or so episodes and it was boring as fuck.

Last 1/3 of episodes were great leading up to and including the First Order's occupation and takeover of the platform.

Thought the same thing, definitely catered for the kiddies (and I watch anything Star Wars!)

The Emmy Award-nominated series Star Wars Resistance returns for its second and final season beginning Sunday, October 6 at 10:00 p.m. EDT/PDT on Disney Channel and in DisneyNOW, with subsequent airings on Disney XD. The concluding season takes place during the events of "The Last Jedi" leading up to "The Rise of Skywalker," as Kaz and the team continue to fight against the threat of the First Order, culminating in an epic series finale.
