“You’re reckless, little one. You never would have made it as Obi-Wan’s Padawan. But you might make it as mine…” – Anakin

Brief Synopsis – Anakin and his new Padawan apprentice must try and save the son of Jabba the Hutt who was kidnapped by the Separatist movement led by Count Dooku.
My Take on it – As a HUGE fan of anything Star Wars, I was surprised that I never had heard of this film beforehand.
It truly deserves its place in the canon of the Star Wars universe and it is able to give us so much more insight into the characters depicted in the films along with foresight into their lives in the future.
This film also helps us understand more of what happened between episodes 2 and 3 and expands the scope of everything in that universe.
It expands our knowledge of the direction things are going and more insight into what eventually will happen later on in the canon.
Now that I’ve seen this film, I can’t wait to eventually watch all of the episodes of this series to learn even more about what happened between the intervening years.
Bottom Line – Great addition to the Star Wars canon. As a fan of the whole series, I loved seeing some of my favorite characters reappear in a new adventure. It gives us so much more insight into some of the characters lives and helps us understand more of what happened during the years between episodes 2 and 3 which makes gives even more gravitas to how things eventually turn out. Now that Ive seen this film, I’m quite curious to see more about what happened in the intervening years. Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – When Ahsoka is addressing the clones in the hangar bay, a pink droid is standing next to R2-D2. This droid’s name is R2-KT, and was included as a way to honor the work of the 501st Legion (an international group of Star Wars costumers who perform countless hours of volunteer work for many charities). The droid was created in the memory of Katie Johnson (daughter of the 501st Legion’s founder Albin Johnson) who died of cancer at the young age of seven. Some of the costumer’s built a pink R2 (dubbed R2-KT) for Katie, to provide her comfort in the last days of her life. This was to reflect the scene in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002), when R2-D2 watches over Padmé, while she slept at night. (From IMDB)
Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
