From 1978, with the single broadcast of The Star Wars Holiday Special, at the start of the 21st century, The Galaxy Far, Far Away’s relationship with television was fraught with difficulty. A handful of TV movies and live-action animated series in the 1980s proved that the resources did not yet exist to produce the look of star wars in a weekly format – although the Ewoks the cartoon got pretty close surviving for two whole seasons. Flash forward to 2003, and the film produced by Genndy Tartakovsky Star Wars: The Clone Wars offered a way to dramatize star wars stories on TV in a compelling and profitable way.

Next, the 3D animated sequel clone wars series in 2008 began a tradition of star wars television that continues today with animated programs like Star Wars: The Bad Batch and the live-action success of The Mandalorian. The latter becoming a gateway to an ever-evolving story tangential to the Skywalker saga, but equally epic. Much of this history can be traced back to 2008 clone wars supervising director, Dave Filoni, who went on to create or co-create most of the star wars television.

Of course, the quality and appreciation of each show varies – especially with the recent Boba Fett book. But before the Obi Wan Kenobi the limited series opens up new possibilities in the star wars galaxy, let’s classify them star wars TV shows.
