The animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars got three Daytime Emmy Awards nominations for “OUTSTANDING WRITING TEAM FOR A DAYTIME ANIMATED PROGRAM”, “OUTSTANDING MUSIC DIRECTION AND COMPOSITION FOR A PRESCHOOL, CHILDREN’S OR ANIMATED PROGRAM, and “OUTSTANDING SOUND MIXING AND SOUND EDITING FOR A DAYTIME ANIMATED PROGRAM”.
The final season of the show was aired last year.
Let us recall that much of the greatness of The Clone Wars comes from the setting created for the Prequel Trilogy. The Jedi and Padawan always on mission, the clone army, the droid army, the Republic politics, the Sith Lords plotting in the shadows, the centrality of Coruscant, the acrobatic swordfights, etc. All of this took form in Episodes I, II and III.
It’s kind of obvious, but it’s something important to remember, since bloggers regularly write dumb pieces about how The Clone Wars “rEdEeMeD” the Prequels. Of course the series added its own storylines and developed its own tone, but the truth is it was all built on the achievements of the Prequel Trilogy.
