    My wife and I had just started dating at the time and she won tickets to a sneak preview event for this. I thought it looked horrible, but went anyway. Needless to say I was very pleasantly surprised and learned that perhaps people didn’t know what they were talking about…

    I actually didn’t see the pilot movie until after I’d seen the final episodes of TCW’s fifth season. It was kind of weird, delving back into the 2008 origins of TCW after I’d already seen its ending.

    The roughly three year long gap between the release of ROTS and the release of the TCW movie made it seem like a natural continuation of the PT. I guess that’s what people mean when they talk about there being a “prequel era” of Star Wars from 1999 to 2014.
