How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

How does Anakin feel about being given a Padawan? What impact does this new assignment have on him? How do you feel about being a teacher or mentor to others?

In a press packet, George Lucas says the idea of doing an animated version of Star Wars allowed the filmmakers to “tell other stories, show other Jedi, introduce new characters and even tell stories about the clones themselves.” What do you think about this decision? Does the animation enhance or distract from the live-action film franchise?
