Star Wars the Clones Wars has come to an end as Disney announced that the show would be canceled. The announcement was upsetting news for me because in my opinion this was my favorite season of the show. Star Wars the Clone Wars started off a bit rough, I thought the animations and the graphics were a bit clunky for the first season, but as the show went on it started to grow on me.
My Thoughts about the Clone Wars
Story wise the show was great, but I really enjoyed the directing of the show. As the series continued to grow I noticed that they started to use really dynamic camera angles. They would show us amazing panoramic views of the city, and I loved how they would zoom in with battles and show us a close shot of a character performing an attack on a specific body part and then zooming out again to show us how they followed the attack up. They started showing us beautiful shots of scenery and using complex camera angles and special effects to really make the show come alive. I also noticed that they slowed some of the animations down in combat and during chase scenes so that it gave us a clear view of what the characters were doing in every shot. The Darth Maul VS Palpatine battle was great, and I loved everything dealing with Ashoka running from the law.
I also noticed that the music composer did a great job writing new songs for Star Wars the Clone Wars. The music would get really intense for combat and chase scenes, and would slow down to get emotional when they wanted to change the mood. The shift with the music wasn’t something that you really noticed while watching the Clone Wars, but it really helped suck you into the world to grab your attention.
I just wish the series took all of the storylines they built up over the course of the five seasons and improved on them for a sixth season story arc. Perhaps the main goal was to build these storylines to start a new TV show, or better yet a new series of movies that focuses around Ashoka and the other minor characters of the Clone Wars.
Looking forward to more
Out of all the characters in the Star Wars the Clones Wars universe, I always thought that Ashoka was the most interesting because I wanted to know how she would escape Order 66. I thought the writers did a great job of writing her out of the show while still leaving hope that she survived the Jedi purge.
Ashoka leaving the Jedi Order opens up a lot of possibilities for new storylines, such as- Ashoka taking on her own apprentice and secretly training them in the ways of the force. My only complaints I had for Star Wars the Clone Wars season 5 was the Droid adventures through space, I thought it went on too long, but I suppose fans of the droids would have enjoyed that.
Overall, I loved the final season of Star Wars the Clone Wars and I thought they did a great job putting it together. I’m really hoping that they will do a spin off show that continues the storyline of the other sub characters to show us more of what happened to Asajj Ventress, Ashoka, and go ahead and show us how Boba Fett becomes the famous Bounty Hunter.
Are you looking forward to Disney finishing the story with a new show? Did you enjoy the final season? Or are you glad the Clone Wars has finally come to an end?
