The Star Wars section of Disney+ is about to get even bigger with new (well, really it’s old) content from a galaxy far, far away set to arrive on the streaming service on April 2, Decider has revealed.
One of these projects arriving on Disney+ is Star Wars: Clone Wars, the series that ran on Cartoon Network from 2003 to 2005. The series developed and drawn by Genndy Tartakovsky is no longer canon, but is an incredible watch in offering a stylistically different take on the Star Wars universe. Fan regard for the show has only grown since premiering and it introduced many interesting elements that made their way into the canon Clone Wars series, including the villainous Asajj Ventress. It also features perhaps the most frightening depiction of Grievous we’ve seen yet.
Also coming to Disney+ is The Story of a Faithful Wookiee, the animated portion of the Star Wars Holiday Special that introduced fans to Boba Fett (who is sporting a blue and white armor design, different from the green that fans have later become accustomed to). For many younger fans, this may be their time exposure to this Star Wars story.
Joining these projects are the Ewok films, Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor. These projects are…something to say the least. They’re so unusual that it’s difficult not to question how they were commissioned and made. Nonetheless, they’re fascinating watches in true, charming Star Wars style.
2021 is coming out to be a big year for Star Wars content on Disney+. In May, The Bad Batch premieres, and the highly anticipated The Book of Boba Fett is slated to release this December.
