PiercingMetal Thoughts: As a lifer when it comes to “Star Wars”, I am rather sad to have admitted that I didn’t see any of the other animated shows but in my defense when I first learned about them I thought that they were geared to a much younger audience. Turns out I was wrong and the “Rebels” and “Clone Wars” shows work with some of the film continuity and that’s of great interest to me. I’m planning on watching this at some point but I might wait until its all completed and then binge-watch it. What about you readers? Are you going to watch this latest installment in the Star Wars mythology? Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time and as always, please keep safe out there.
