    As a long time Star Wars fan who has avoided most of what the prequel-trilogy has created, I have been enjoying the last few seasons of this series. The trailer for it made me very interested to watch it. Especially since the show seems to be going to the darker side and coming closer to Episode III as stated above. I’ll be tuning in on September 29th to see what happens. :)
