I’m a little disappointed that it’s only prequel era, since an anthology series has the potential to visit multiple eras. The shorts sound very good though. It gives me hope that since Lucasfilm are determined to give us more Clone Wars content, they’ll do another season of Lost Missions and animate unfinished Clone Wars arcs, adding them to The Clone Wars as a whole. That would be a dream.

Yeah I really hope we get another revival of the Clone Wars someday. There are still so many plot threads left hanging like Maul’s escape from Sidious and closure for Ventress and Boba.

Pie in the sky, I think it would be neat to see the earliest days of the war just after AOTC. Get a more fleshed out exploration of the areas Tartakovsky’s series touched on. Perhaps even finally a canon depiction of how Anakin got his scar.

Yeah , I was disappointed to hear this is focusing on prequel area characters too . Although , Dave Filoni is helming the show and he played a large part in bringing a lot of EU characters and concepts back into "canon " . He has also been known to play his cards close to the vest and not revealing things to the public and sometimes his own crew . I don’t think he would have used that specific title , that specific logo for this show without some kind of connection . Going by the original Tales Of The Jedi comics , the sprit of Exar Kun is still trapped in the temples of Yavin 4 in the time period this is set in …while things probably won’t play out the way they did in the EU , I could see an eventual reworking of some of the events of the Jedi academy trilogy or I Jedi , where Exar’s spirit is discovered and dealt with ,being transposed to this time , with it being these prequel era Jedi that have to deal with him .Thrawn was brought back into the current stories , so I think anything can happen .I would like to see this series get more than one season and end up heading this route and leading to something bigger . I am selective in my reading of current Star Wars books and comics and not fully up to date on "canon " , has Exar Kun been referenced at all in the modern materials ?

I would love to see a series on EU characters too, or a series on any era, rather than just the Prequels. That just seems so limiting.
