Over the past 42 years, the Star Wars universe has grown beyond galaxy-spanning battles between an evil empire and acrobatic warrior monks to encompass a multitude of stories about diversity, resilience, courage, the brutality of colonial rule, and the complicated relationships between people and the technologies we create. The CGI animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars continues this expansion, delving into Star Wars history to consider the ethics of genetic engineering, the challenges and potential dangers of creating autonomous and "smart" technologies, the agonies of diplomacy, and the devastating toll of war on combatants and civilians alike.
