The Mandolorian is easily the best thing Disney has done with the Star Wars IP since they bought it. This season was no slouch.

This sparked me to watch all the cannon Star Wars material, including the TV shows. I'm working my way through the newer Clone Wars series. Even though it's for kids it's really great so far. The one from Cartoon Network in the early 2000s was amazing as well, though. 

In comparison to Disney's sorry excuse for a continuation of the trilogies, the Prequels are actually pretty good. I take back all my rage when they were the "shitty" trilogy. I know a new definition for shitty.

Definitely don't sleep on the Cartoon Network Clone Wars mini-series and the 'movie'.
The 'for kids' element fades pretty soon in to theories and it's some great shit.
Rebels is similar. before the end of Season One, it finds its feet and by the end, it's actually pretty heavy and great. Ties in to a Mando and a lot of the upcoming stuff too, I suspect. Well worth the watch.

Here's the chronological sequence for Clone wars viewing, if that's your thing.

Also, the final season overlaps with Revenge of The Sith. I mean, there are scenes that are directly adjacent (within seconds) to scenes in the film. It's goddamned great.

Yeah I'm only mid way through the first season of the clone wars series, so it still has the kids feel, which isn't the worst. I did not realize it was before the Revenge of the Sith, but I'll probably just rewatch that when it comes to it.

I was unsure about Rebels, but I'll give it a go as well.

Oh, man. Revenge Of The Sith is the literal end of The Clone Wars.

Those are not canon.

Yeah I was just reminiscing on those old, possibly forgotten, SW cartoons. Didn?t even see someone mention canon.

Are the two Ewok movies, Caravan of Courage and The Battle of Endor, canon? I'm thinking of buying them on DVD since Dagny has never seen them and they are not streaming anywhere.

As of April 25, 2014, the only previously published materials that are considered canon are the six Star Wars films, the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series and film, and Part I of the short story Blade Squadron. Meanwhile, the Expanded Universe is no longer considered canon[1] and was re-termed as the "Legends" brand. Most Star Wars material released after April 25, 2014?with some exceptions?is composed in collaboration with the Lucasfilm Story Group, making it part of the "new canon."
