5 must-see Star Wars series on Disney+

With now around ten TV series on the clock, Star Wars has expanded a lot in streaming. If you don’t have time to see everything on Disney+, focus on the essentials. Here are five Star Wars series that we recommend. There are obvious facts, but also surprises.

May 4 is the day we celebrate Star Wars. It is indeed the ideal date to make a play on words, in English, with the famous line “ May the force be with you » (“ May the force be with you “, in French). Here it gives “may, the fourth”. We definitely know how to have fun among the nerds of the saga created by George Lucas.

It turns out that 2024 is a bit of a special year for fandom. First of all, it is the twenty-five anniversary of the cinema release of Episode I, The Phantom Menace. The feature film debuted in the USA on May 19, 1999 (and October 13 of the same year in France). 2024 also marks ten years since the end of the extended universe, in favor of a new lore.

However, despite these two major highlights, and the arrival of two TV series, it was decided not to schedule the annual convention of Star Wars in 2024. A sign, perhaps, that Lucasfilm is in a bit of a slump and doesn’t have much spectacular to show fans. The return of Star Wars Celebration is scheduled for the end of April 2025 in Japan.

It now remains to kill time before the release of The Acolyte and of Skeleton Crew. You can, for example, rediscover the Star Wars timeline with the machete order. Or advance in the series, if you are missing some. Are you hesitant among the ten that can be found in streaming? Here are five of them that are essential.

Andorbecause it’s the best series Star Wars nowadays

We expected a second-rate TV series, centered on a secondary character, himself from a spin-off film. Only red flags, we thought. Wrongly. Andor is the best thing to happen to Star Wars on the small screen. It’s a great science fiction series. Above all, it’s the best series Star Wars nowadays.

Ahsokabecause we have lightsabers, Jedi, the Force and Thrawn

Andor is an excellent series Star Warswhich paradoxically does not put too much Star Wars in its ingredients. Ahsoka, it’s the opposite. We are immersed at the crossroads of several works. There are lightsaber duels, nods to the extended universe, messy connections in the loreand, of course, a certain Jedi. The fan service is there, guilty pleasure.

Visionsfor his refreshing look at the saga

Here is the UFO of the selection. Visions is not a series Star Wars which enters into the continuity of the saga. Not everything you see there is in the official canon. So why choose it? For the beauty and variety of the artistic direction. These are in fact short films which present a “personal” reading of various animation studios.

Tales of the Jedibecause it will not take you an unreasonable amount of time

In principle, we would have recommended you Rebels, The Bad Batch Or The Clone Wars. All these animated series are of good quality. But we’re like you: we don’t have time. Tales of the Jedi offers a great option: the series is brief, and what’s more it answers questions linked to the prelogy – such as Count Dooku’s drift.

The Mandalorianbecause the mandoverse rests on it

It’s difficult to have empathy for a hero who always wears a helmet. Furthermore, we find Grogu rather unbearable. But it must be recognized that for a very first live-action series on Star Wars, Lucasfilm did well. In addition, The Mandalorian is now the basis of the entire mandoverse. Essential, therefore.
