Shaak Ti leads the fight to keep Supreme Chancellor Palpatine out of General Grievous' claws. Meanwhile, Anakin finds a hidden laboratory where the Techno Union is conducting experiments on Nelvaan ...
Immediately after the events of Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002), the Clone Wars continue. The Separatists launch masses of Battle Droids while the Republic has an entire arsenal of Clone Troopers to blow them away. Obi-Wan Kenobi and his apprentice Anakin Skywalker are also participating in the fights against Count Dooku and his defiant separatists. Jedi Masters Yoda and Mace Windu, take part in the battle as well. While down on Coruscant, Padmé Amidala, Chancellor Palpatine, C-3PO and R2-D2 hope nothing but good for our heroes. Will the Republic emerge triumphant? Will Dooku and his separatists be brought to their knees? And will Anakin truly bring balance to the Force, or will he bring absolutely tyranny? Written by

General Grievous' voice is significantly different in this, rather than his voice in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith because his actor in Episode III had not been chosen yet. The ending of the final episode allowed for this as Mace Windu crushed Grevious' lungs leading to a possibly changed voice. See more »
I had not heard of Genndy Tartakovsky (director) before I saw Star Wars: Clone Wars, but I will be keeping an eye out for him from now on. Star Wars: Clone Wars is a series of 20 animated shorts that are collected together on one DVD. I did not see them when they originally aired on Cartoon Network but I must say they play well together as a feature length animated film. The story takes place just after the end of the Star Wars: Attack of the Clones live action film and just before 3rd of the prequels, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. We follow various Jedi Knights (including Yoda) as they conduct the war, but the majority of the film centers on the adventures of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. There is no stupid dialogue and no annoying characters (ye gods thank you no Jar-Jar!! we-saa real happy about that). What there is in this animated film is some serious action. In fact there is more action than you can shake a stick at, and let me tell you, I can shake a lot of stick at action! I had more fun watching this animated film than I did in watching episode one and two! The animation here is primarily 2D animation and that, in my opinion, was a better choice. Why try to recreate the world in 3D computer animation when you can just watch the movies for the best CGI out there. Now if episode three: Revenge of the Sith is half as much fun as these animated shorts, then fan-boys all over the world will be bowing once again at the altar of George Lucas. I have also heard that there will be a second volume of shorts and I, for one, am looking forward to the DVD release so I can spend another hour or so of my life on the edge of my seat!
