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. 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 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 was apprehensive about seeing the Clone Wars movie, but after it pleasantly surprised me, I was definitely looking forward to this TV show. After watching the first two episodes aired tonight on Cartoon Network, I can safely say my anticipation was rewarded.
Judging by these two episodes, I can see that a lot of work has been put into this series, and it's not just something for the kiddies to watch. It was watching a mix of the humanity of original trilogy with the action of the new trilogy. It's a great show, and definitely worth a watch for Star Wars fans of all ages. Just give it a try, you're bound to love it.
