treat this as an explanation to kids for how the relations with the taliban and to a more recent extent the kurds ended up
10. Onderon rebels Season: 5 Episodes: "A War on Two Fronts," "Front Runners," "The Soft War," "Tipping Points" For most of its duration, The Clone Wars is about a full-on war between two factions of roughly equal strength. When Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, and Rex travel to Onderon to teach a group of freedom fighters how to effectively win back control of their planet from the Separatists, we get something closer to the Rebels-vs-Empire conflict seen in Star Wars Rebels and the entire Original Trilogy.
this covers more star wars then RL implications but goes on to what the new movie will cover on how the strict "no relations" impacted and lead to the fall of the jedi but padme and anakin are the better example
9. Obi-Wan and Satine Season: 2 Episodes: "The Mandalore Plot," "Voyage of Temptation," "Duchess of Mandalore"
this would be the big one in the over all context of starwars lore as it explains how anakins fall was fortold but it was mostly kept from him and is your standard shades of good vs shades of evil the link also covers standards of what lead to bobafetts fall as his constant quest for vengence consumed his life and even fleshes out darth mauls history and impact in the over all franchise (they sure liked brining him back from the dead) that then culminates in the near finale of rebels where he once again does battle with obiwon and they both find peace in the end after the trauma they have each endured
5. Mortis Season: 3 Episodes: "Overlords," "Altar of Mortis," "Ghosts of Mortis" One of the most surreal Clone Wars arcs explores the nature of the Force itself when Anakin, Ahsoka, and Obi-Wan are unwillingly transported to the ancient realm of Mortis, inhabited by three incredibly powerful beings: the angelic Daughter on the Light Side of the Force, the sinister Son on the Dark Side, and the wise, neutral Father.

Meh. I'll go see it. It has become a Christmas tradition for our family to go see the latest Star Wars. I think the new movies have been fine. A little bit of nostalgia, good action and some humor thrown in. Do I have criticisms? Sure. I don't take it that serious though.
If we were to be honest, the original trilogy isn't some kind of cinematic masterpiece (could argue Empire). The writing isn't much better than Episodes 1-3 and they have there fair share of annoying muppets (Jedi anyone?). The biggest reason we covet the original movies is because of the nostalgia we feel for them.
Now that I'm in my 40's, I've accepted the fact that no sequel, prequel, reboot or spin off is going to capture the same feeling for my favorite movies as a kid. I do hope that my kids will have the same experiences with the new Star Wars movies or any of their other favorites.

The second movie made $600 million less worldwide that the first and $300 million less domestically.
For the math geeks that a drop of 35% worldwide and 34% domestic.
After watching the last trailer it wouldn't surprise me to see the same drop again.
