The productions distributed in streaming explore the universe of the Star Wars saga, some more successful in their task than others

Star Wars has always been a saga with very fertile ground for exploration and expansion, generating several books, games, comics, with stories that exploited the universe created by George Lucas. With the launch of Disney+, Lucasfilm found itself with an opportunity to create new live-action series that showcased different angles and eras Star Wars which were not yet known or answered by fans.

Lucasfilm has paid a lot of attention to the productions of streaming. While this distant galaxy has no return date to theaters, the series has become a favorite place to expand this story, covering different time periods and giving more depth to characters and factions that have never had much space on the big screen.

Only from The Mandalorian THE Andor, the series also has very different proposals. Some are lighter and focus on an adventure atmosphere, while others deal with heavier themes of the universe. Star Wars. At the same time, there are those who mix all this to bring more varied visions of the saga. And, despite all this, the question remains as to which are the best live action series in the franchise.

It is worth mentioning that Luscasfilm still has two series that will debut on Disney+ in 2024, the first of which The Acolyte, set to premiere on June 4, 2024, showcases the era of the High Republic and a danger that threatens the galaxy. Already The skeleton crewa series about four children who end up lost on the way to their home planet and try to find a way back home, there’s no release date yet.

5. The Boba Fett book

The Boba Fett book was a highly anticipated series by longtime fans of the bounty hunter, which until his participation was very interesting The Mandalorianit felt like I was still in the stomach of a Sarlacc.

It stars Temuera Morrison, who he had previously worked on Star Wars – Episode II: Attack of the Clones as Jango Fett, the hunter who served as the basis for the Republic clones and Boba, the series shows how Fett survived after last seeing him on Tatooine.

With several very confusing episodes, with well below average action, and the fact that two episodes out of seven in total were reserved to act as a bridge to the third season of The Mandalorian, The Boba Fett book it turned out to be quite weak.

At least it served to make those who thought that the bounty hunter was just a nice uniform and nothing more always right.

4.Obi-Wan Kenobi


Another opportunity that wasn’t completely wasted, but could have been much better, was the return of Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the character’s solo series. Moving on a few years later Star Wars – Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan Kenobi shows the Jedi Master taking care of Luke Skywalker in the deserts of Tatooine.

The action ends up moving to other planets, when the Jedi is asked to try to rescue an old friend’s daughter who has been kidnapped, showing where Leia Organa first knew old Ben Kenobi A new hope.

Several episodes ended up not working as well as they could have, especially when Obi-Wan meets his former apprentice, now transformed into Darth Vader. With a script full of poorly developed solutions, the series is worth the return of Hayden Christensen, who plays an excellent Darth Vader.

3. Ahsoka

A spin-off of The Mandalorian and animations Star Wars Battle of the Clones AND Star Wars Rebels, Ahsoka revolves around the Jedi played by Rosario Dawson (demolition Man). It basically continues the plot of Rebelsthe series dove headfirst into the mythology of Star Warstouching on mystical elements that up until now not even films have explored.

In addition to Ahsoka, the series brought several characters Rebels making their live action debut as Sabine Wren, Hera Syndulla and Ezra Bridger. The icing on the cake was the participation of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka’s former master during the Clone Wars.

2. The Mandalorian

The first live action series of Star Wars after the launch of Disney+, The Mandalorian tells the story of a bounty hunter created by the Mandalorians who ends up on a mission to kidnap a child, who he ends up becoming fond of and completely changes his destiny.

With Pedro Pascal (The last of us) and have Baby Yoda as a real and inexhaustible source of money for Disney, The Mandalorian showed many people how Lucasfilm could explore the Star Wars universe on streaming, telling a story that takes place after the events of Return of the Jedihaving the freedom to extract elements from the animations and the classic trilogy.

The success of the series led to three seasons, two spin-offs (The Boba Fett book AND Ahsoka) AND a film for the cinemadirected by showrunner Jon Favreau (Iron Man) and whose filming is expected to begin in 2024.

1. Andor


Andor It seems like an odd choice to be considered the best live action Star Wars series to date, but that’s exactly what it is The Mandalorian AND Ahsoka Diving headfirst into the mythology and magic of the saga, Andor shows the dirty and more realistic side of the war for freedom against an authoritarian regime.

With Diego Luna, who takes up the role he played Rogue Onethe series shows the Empire’s influence on the daily life of the galaxy and how the Rebel Alliance has worked in the shadows to try to bring back freedom and end tyranny.

Andor it’s a series that starts out a little slowly, but soon embraces its themes and becomes one of the best examples of how to approach the different themes that Star Wars offers in a way that shows the richness of this universe.
