    With the Ahsoka series coming up, I started thinking about how characters can be different depending on the medium; mainly animation vs live action. For example, TCW Obi-wan feels a bit more "over the top" or exaggerated than PT or OT Obi-wan. Even Ahsoka feels a tad bit different between Rebels and The Mandalorian; though it's still feels like Ahsoka, just a but more experienced and weathered. However, I feel like TCW Anakin is a completely different character from movie Anakin, and that he was given an entirely different characterization. In the movies, he's very much insecure, brash, and immature; almost naive. In TCW, he comes across as much more secure, capable, mature, and even wise in some cases; he's also not as naive. Am I the only one who feels this way? I've always felt a huge disconnect between movie Anakin & TCW Anakin and have never really been able to see them as the same character.

    yes, because they were trying to make him more of a like-able character, which they succeeded in, until you remember that he turns into ROTS anakin

    I also agree that film Anakin and TCW Anakin are completely different. Obviously by design. I think Filoni and crew wanted to present a version of Anakin that was much more like the heroic Jedi we heard about in the originals, instead of the very flawed Jedi we actually see in the Prequel movies.

    Also the voice of Anakin in TCW does not match up well with Hayden at all. Regardless, I enjoy TCW as much as anyone else. It's a great show.

    I think the Clone Wars micro series does a much more accurate characterization of the Anakin we see in the Prequels.

    Yeah, the difference in voice doesn't help lol. I'm like you though, I still love TCW, I just can't see TCW Anakin as the same character from AotC or RotS. I really need to rewatch the micro-series, it's been a few years since I last watched it.
