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.
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.
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 »
Different from the movies, but definitely has potential
Like many others, I saw the world premiere of Clone Wars on Cartoon Network, and I have to say, I was very impressed. George Lucas has done it again! Now I actually have something to look forward to on Friday nights. The characters act pretty much act like they do in the movies, all the voices sound great, the animation is amazing, and the episodes actually have a plot! I will agree, however, that I don't think it was quite necessary for Lucasfilm to release a movie version just for the sake of promoting the television show. I hear that they're making at least a hundred episodes or more, so hopefully they'll live up to the first two. A job well done all around.
