Although the Star Wars TV shows Star Wars: Droids and Star Wars: Ewoks (which were aired together under the more exciting name "The Ewoks and Droids Adventure Hour") landed on television in 1985, it wasn't until the new century that Star Wars television series gained momentum. Since then, there have been some great Star Wars series - expanding the universe and adding background to favorite characters, old and new.
Although the Emmy-winning micro series Star Wars: Clone Wars premiered in 2003, weeks before the 2005 release of Revenge of the Sith, when it ended the TV was once again empty of Star Wars. The full-lenth 2008 animated series The Clone Wars wasn't released until three years after the last film in the prequel trilogy. That Star Wars show seemed to open the floodgates of possibility and fandom. The acquisition of the Star Wars franchise by Disney and the collaboration with LEGO brought some of the best Star Wars stories to the television screen, from comedic versions of Resistance history to dramas no less intense for being computer-animated. With the introduction of The Mandalorian on Disney Plus and untitled Cassian Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi live-action series in the works, the world of Star Wars seems to have no intention of leaving us hanging without Star Wars TV shows any time soon. Still, there's more to the Star Wars universe you can check out!
