All Star Wars Live-Action TV Shows, Ranked From Total Disaster to Masterpiece
Can you guess which one is the best?
In recent years, the number of live-action series set in a galaxy far, far away has increased dramatically. The variety of genres, forms and topics is amazing: every viewer can find something to their liking.
Worst of the worst, as expected, is Obi-Wan Kenobi. The series had a huge budget, Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen and Liam Neeson. And it turned out to be a pointless show that not only brought nothing new, but also discredited the classics.
Everything in the show is bad, but the main problem is the plot itself, which does not develop the characters.
4. The Book of Boba Fett
The Book of Boba Fett was supposed to be a cool The Mandalorian spin-off, but it didn't work out. The problem is the directorial approach of Robert Rodriguez, the showrunner of the series. Rodriguez makes great thrash movies, but his style destroys the Star Wars vibe.
Instead of a brutal western, fans got a story about blue-haired teenagers fighting a space drug syndicate.
The most recent series in the Star Wars universe, Ahsoka, has yet to reveal itself in its full potential. But after three episodes, it can already be said that while Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni are not offering anything radically new, but they are not sliding into a disappointing failure, as happened with Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The show is gaining momentum, but for now the hope that Ahsoka will become the new favorite remains elusive.
The dramatic show Andor is currently one of the best representatives of the franchise. Created by Tony Gilroy, Andor proves that Star Wars is not only about Jedi, Sith, and clones, but also a full-fledged espionage thriller.
Andor's central question is – what is the fundamental difference between the Rebellion and the Empire, when both use similarly inhumane methods to achieve their goals?
1. The Mandalorian
Fans adore The Mandalorian for being the closest in spirit to the original trilogy. It is a space western with fantasy elements, where tough heroes engage in gunfights and robberies instead of political debates and sorting out family relationships.
Many viewers unfamiliar with a galaxy far, far away have come to know Star Wars with Din Djarin and Grogu, and loved the spirit of adventure. The Mandalorian is now the main show of the franchise, and there is hardly anyone who will take its place in the near future.
