Kids Shows to Watch on Netflix: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
There are lots of reasons to like this show, which ran for five seasons on Cartoon Network before being picked up by Netflix for a final season, but let’s be honest: You’re here for the lightsabers and spaceships.
You’ll get plenty of those, but you’ll also find one of the best kids shows to watch on Netflix.
The Clone Wars pulls viewers into one of the most exciting periods of Star Wars history, the titular Clone Wars. The story takes place between the films Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. It focuses on Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker’s heroics during the war, in the last few years before Anakin begins his transformation into the villainous Darth Vader.
Whereas the most recent Star Wars films have struggled with crafting complex, interesting characters, the show succeeds in taking the familiar faces and adding more depth than Lucas ever managed. It’s interesting, well-written, beautifully animated and just plain exciting. The Clone Wars is a treat for old fans as much as new ones, making it one of the best kids shows to watch on Netflix.
