To be honest, after "Clone Wars" was pulled from Cartoon Network after Disney bought out Lucas, I was not too hip on any new animated series from this franchise. I watched the first few episodes begrudgingly and then found myself surprised to be getting into the story line. Then suddenly I found myself looking forward to each new episode. So yes, it is different, but just as good as "Clone Wars" was over on Cartoon Network.
