    I do not like the form of graphics in which "Rebels" are created. Everything is angular and the characters look very unnatural. In particular, those thin lightsabers..

    Made it on the cheap. Clone Wars had Lucas backing it.

    I Don’t Like The Clone Wars, I Don’t Know Why, But It Never Was Really “Good” In My Opinion Except For The Maul Episodes, The Episode With Darth Bane, And The Episodes About The Younglings Constructing Their Lightsabers. I Think Rebels Is 100000000000000000000 Times Better, I Can Actually Watch It Without Getting Bored And It’s Just Way More Intresting And Adds More To Canon

    The problem I have with rebels is that its just but more aimed for kids which Im fine with but it gets a little annoying. On the other hand clone wars was practically for all ages. I also don't like rebels a ton is that it just seems like a downgrade from clone wars. My last complaint is most of the characters especially sabine is just kinda cliche and Zeb is just annyoing. Never the less im still currently watching rebels and it is pretty enjoyable at times so I will give it that.

    The clone wars added more to canon. Plus I personally like the prequels and the clone wars was similar to the prequels. My point being it adds more to the prequel trilogy and anakin is much better then he was in attack of the clones. Any way rebels is just kinda kiddy and is just plain old sloppy.

    Clone Wars was a far superior animation series... even the graphic modelling was better than Rebels. I tried to watch... but Rebels didn't cut it for me... sorry!!!

    Both shows are great, and we're lucky to have them.

    I feel like Rebels is a little more focused, despite its filler episodes. It just feels like there's a story they're actually trying to tell, like the series has a direction.

    Clone Wars had some incredible episodes, and I think Ahsoka gave the series a bit of narrative to fall back on (I mean, she obviously had to go somewhere by the time RotS starts, right?) but a lot of times it just felt like we were just getting vignettes into the war itself. Which, ultimately, is still not a bad thing by any means.

    Anyway, here's to hoping I'm right and Rebels is actually going somewhere.

    I really enjoyed both, but I like Rebels better overall.

    I think The Clone Wars has higher highs and lower lows, but Rebels is pretty consistent overall, and even its filler episodes are watchable. I think it would’ve been hard for The Clone Wars to accomplish what Rebels has in terms of maintaining a consistent storyline because it isn’t limited to one character or group of characters. However, Rebels couldn’t have accomplished what The Clone Wars did either because it didn’t have Cartoon Network as a viewing platform, nor did it have many main characters that audiences already knew.

    Rebels had a lot going against it and it defied the odds. I think The Clone Wars fits in better with the prequels and what they were setting out to accomplish, while Rebels feels more like classic Star Wars. I had more of an emotional connection with Rebels because, again, there weren’t a zillion different storylines; instead, we allowed the characters we were given to develop over time into a family with a beautiful relationship.

    Both shows are great, but Rebels is a little better in my book.

    I have only watched the First series of Rebels and I was disappointed. I thought the characters childish and not very likeable, there were lots of great characters and settings in Clone Wars. I also much preferred the visual style for worlds in Clone Wars, Rebels didn't appeal to my imagination, it was a more traditional and Disney style animation I thought the Clone Wars more original and imaginative.

    consider giving it another chance.

    i didn't like it either and abandoned it for some of the same reasons
    but i came back a couple seasons later and it was really worth it, ultimately. : D

    Rebels for me. Why?
    Because it felt like it had it's own story to tell and wasn't just trying to fill in gaps and explain away things in the films.
    The Clone Wars is good and it's important because it does improve the PT by adding in much needed info and context IMO.
    Rebels stands much better on it's own as a show

    Thanks, I do seem to get the impression that people found it got better over time.

    Both shows started slow, but grew much better over time. I still like The Clone Wars better. It has this grand scale of two superpowers fighting each other, political intrigue, huge battles for control over lots of different worlds and systems etc. Rebels is much smaller in scale and at times slightly more "for kids".

    Clone Wars definitely. Rebels had very low lows that you had to slog through. There were definitely some bad and boring spots in it that just weren't very compelling.
