Immediately after the events of Star Wars-Episode II: Attack of the Clones, 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, Padme 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

Because it was being simultaneously broadcast as a television series and a web series, technically it makes Clone Wars the first Emmy Winning web series. See more »
Qui-Gon Jinn takes Anakin Skywalker to a tree cave and tells him to go in, saying all that is inside is what he takes in with him (reminiscent of Luke's training as a Jedi in The Empire Strikes Back.) However, this is a major plot hole in that Qui-Gon Jinn died before Anakin began his Jedi training. The scene should have featured Obi-Wan Kenobi, not Qui-Gon. See more »

it seems incredible how this show took all the elements of the prequel trilogy and somehow made them.. good. this show is proof that the prequels didn't have to be the mess they were. it captures the humor, awe-inspiring action and pure awesomeness of the original trilogy and puts it in prequel context. finally the complexity of the relationship between anakin and obi wan can be appreciated. anakin is no longer simply an impatient, silly person. grevious is actually threatening. the battle droids are actually funny! 3PO is... not as annoying! at least he's not worried about coming up with puns in the midst of deadly situations this time around. tyrannous and sidious can be seen as truly intelligent and malicious conspirators. the wookie planet isn't gimmicky. the battle sequences are brilliantly massive and surprising. the jedi tactics are staggering. i could adjectivize this thing all day. bottom line: forget the prequels ands remember this as the true old days of star wars. if only.
