    I’m not surprised that it was renewed as it is a very fun series for both young and old. Not quite as good as Clone Wars was, but not too far off.

    I’ll be watching until the series either starts getting ridiculous (hey, it happens) or til it ends. I love Star Wars, but I don’t blindly follow everything that bears the Star Wars name, but this has been a very entertaining and fun show so far.

    I really hope the series doesn’t end if it catches up to Episode IV but shows what becomes of these characters in the original trilogy era. They could even follow the example of Clone Wars and have a few non-chronological episodes that tell stories from different points in the timeline.
