Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Is this a kid show?

I'm personally not a Star Wars fan, but I cannot believe this is a kid show. Yes, it's animated, but just all the gore and violence like electrocuting people or shooting them makes me say it's 10 and up. My kids have seen all the Star Wars movie and I think they're pretty mature, but if they were like 5 or 6, it would scare the crap out of them! Watching this is like continuously watching Order 66 in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Just why Lucasfilm, why?

Gendy Tartakovsky At His Best

This show was done around the same time that Gendy Tartakovsky was doing work on Dexter’s Lab and the original Powerpuff Girls series. The animation style was so good that it’s the obvious inspiration for the eventual (and now finally getting it’s conclusion thanks to Disney+) Clone Wars series. There were a lot of holes filled in between Episodes 2 and 3 of the movies between these and the next Clone Wars series. All in all, definitely a watch for any true fan even if they’re not considered canonical anymore (at least I’m thinking they’re not).
