Star Wars dog goes viral for watching Clone Wars

Star Wars dog goes viral in this adorable video.

While Star Wars is unfortunately largely a galaxy far, far away that is mostly unpopulated by canines (which we’ve complained about), on this planet a Star Wars dog has gone viral for his attentiveness to the franchise.

Viral dogs are always welcome in our books, especially if they’re nerdy or sporty.

This news was originally reported on by ComicBook.com, which is where we here at Dog O’Day spotted it.

The original video appears to have been deleted, though it should still be visible though that link.

Last week a Redditor with the handle Symtek13 posted a video of their dog watching the animated Star Wars series The Clone Wars, which originally aired for five seasons on Cartoon Network from 2008 to 2014 before a sixth season was dropped on Netflix in 2014 and then a seventh and final season dropped on Disney Plus earlier this year in February.

A spinoff series following a specific group of clone soldiers, The Bad Batch, was recently announced for Disney Plus.

The Clone Wars takes place in the three-year gap between Episodes II and III, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, getting into the gritty details of daily life for the clone soldiers and their Jedi generals. The excellent MedStar novel duology takes place over this same period, providing fascinating questions about the nature of humanity and the messy ethics that result from life on the front lines.

Main characters of the series included Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan apprentice Ahsoka Tano and recurring antagonists included Count Dooku’s apprentice Asajj Ventress and the not-dead now-cyborg Sith Lord Darth Maul.
