Star Wars has two official animated TV shows. But I think they need to go the way DC does, and make animated movies. And not the length of the two Rebels movies, the length of the Clone Wars movie. So that's about an hour and a half. And make these movies darker. That was one thing that made The Clone Wars really good. Don't make them as soft as Rebels, make them dark like The Clone Wars or even darker. And style these movies in the way the Clone Wars did. Their animation was much better than Rebels.

And here, I will give my list of animated movies I want to see in the Star Wars franchise.

Splinter of the Mind's Eye

This was the first book in the Expanded Universe. It was made in the way that a movie based on it could be made. Not many characters, and not many locations. An animated film with maybe Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Carrie Fisher doing the voices, would be a great idea.

Dark Empire Trilogy

This divides many fans. Some say this is a great story while others say it's horrible. I have not yet read it, but I've heard a lot about it, and it sounds really good. They could make a trilogy of animated films with this story. With many familiar faces coming back, and many new ones being introduced.

The Thrawn Trilogy

Many fans were disappointed to here that the new trilogy will not be based off of the Thrawn trilogy. And many fans say that this is the best Expanded Universe story out there. But I don't think these stories have to be gone. Yes they could publish them again and say they are canon, or they could rewrite them, but animated versions would be the best way to go. Have all your actors and actresses come back, and cast Thrawn and Pellaeon and other characters.

The Truce at Bakura

This book is set almost immediately after Return of the Jedi, and I've heard it is a great story. This book sounds great, and many people loved it, so why not include this as an animated film. With classics returning, and a new planet and species to explore, this would be a great film.

A New Dawn

This was the first in line of new canon books and I read it. It was a really good story with great characters. Make this a prequel to Rebels and style it in the form of Rebels. This was a great book that I loved. The characters were great, Count Vidian was the perfect villain, and seeing how Kanan and Hera met on screen would be really cool.

Dark Disciple

Originally this was going to be 8 episodes in The Clone Wars season 7. That show was cancelled, and those episodes became a 300 page book. The book was very good, and I think it could work well as an animated movie. I know I want to see more of Quinlan Vos and Asajj Ventress, so why not have an animated movie based off the book about them.
