Highlights From the 2019 Star Wars Celebration ‘Clone Wars’ Panel

As many of you have probably noticed, especially those of you who follow me on my personal Twitter account, 2019 was a challenging year for me in many respects.

Guest Article: #CloneWarsRewatch: Using Twitter and Rabbit.TV to Connect With ‘Star Wars’ Fans

I watch a lot of media. It’s true. If I’m not on YouTube watching someone play a video game, I’m on Netflix. If I’m not watching something on Netflix, it’s Hulu. Not on Hulu? I’m searching for something new on Amazon Prime or popping in a movie I’ve seen hundreds of times before. I’ve probably watched Simpsons episodes hundreds of thousands of times. I’ve put myself through two rewatches of 11 and then 12 seasons of ... [Continue Reading]

And then I thought, “Why don’t I make a top five list of something from The Clone Wars… and include Ahsoka in it?!” Before I begin, I wanted to say ... [Continue Reading]
