As the Clone Wars near an end, the Sith Lord Darth Sidious steps out of the shadows, at which time Anakin succumbs to his emotions, becoming Darth Vader and putting his relationships with Obi-Wan and Padme at risk.
Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the Senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a wookiee and two droids to save the universe from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
After the rebels have been brutally overpowered by the Empire on their newly established base, Luke Skywalker takes advanced Jedi training with Master Yoda, while his friends are pursued by Darth Vader as part of his plan to capture Luke.
Dave Filoni and first season head writer Henry Gilroy had originally assumed that Obi-Wan and Anakin would only make occasional appearances on the show because most of their Clone Wars activities had already been told in printed work and in Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003). Instead, the main characters were to be a Twi'lek Jedi called Sendak and his Togruta apprentice Ashla (later to become Ahsoka) who fought piracy and mercenaries around the galaxy. They would team up with a Han Solo like smuggler called Cad, his mistress Lupé and their Gungan strongman Lunker. Another idea was to stick to a couple of recurring locations, not unlike the TV show Firefly (2002) and keep landscapes to a minimum for rendering and conceptualization reasons. However, they soon found out that George Lucas didn't intend to keep The Clone Wars small. See more »
I thought the film was tedious, but this makes up for it
3 episodes in and wow! What a series. Hasn't premiered in the uk yet so I have been watching the episodes on the net (yes naughty naughty I know) and I have been mesmerised. Yes some of the voice acting is pretty bad (obi wan in the third episode stands out) and the animation takes a lot of getting used to, but it is absolutely amazing.
Each episode so far has blown me away and this is at the start. I can't wait to see what they do with the battle scenes. If there is one thing Lucas can do right, that's a fight/battle and I'm sure it wont peter out in later episodes like a lot of US progammes do to lead up to a finale.
10/10. Finally something worth watching on TV
