Storyline

As the Clone Wars sweep through the galaxy, the heroic Jedi Knights struggle to maintain order and restore peace. More and more systems are falling prey to the forces of the dark side as the Galactic Republic slips further and further under the sway of the Separatists and their never-ending droid army. Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan learner Ahsoka Tano find themselves on a mission with far-reaching consequences, one that brings them face-to-face with crime lord Jabba the Hutt. But Count Dooku and his sinister agents, including the nefarious Asajj Ventress, will stop at nothing to ensure that Anakin and Ahsoka fail at their quest. Meanwhile, on the front lines of the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Master Yoda lead the massive clone army in a valiant effort to resist the forces of the dark side ... Written by Warner Bros.

Trivia

The large arch seen as part of the Teth monastery is a design by Ralph McQuarrie that first appeared in the 1995 book "The Illustrated Star Wars Universe". In that book, it was originally pictured as part of Jabba the Hutt's palace on Tatooine. It also appears on the planet Jakku in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). See more »

Goofs

In the first moments of the Battle of Cristophsis scene, as Anakin, Obi-Wan, and the Clones are rushing to the defenses, one clone is firing repeatedly, seemingly at the approaching battle droids. However, as the camera switches to the separatist column, no blaster bolts can be seen, and it is unlikely that the droids are in range anyway. See more »

Quotes

Anakin Skywalker: They're back!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I told you this victory was too easy. We never should have sent the ship back for supplies.
Anakin Skywalker: It wasn't my idea to send the ship back.

If you liked Attack of the Cl...no wait...if you liked Caravan of Courage...
14 August 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The film opens without the traditional scrolling prologue and is replaced by a transatlantic voice that would have been at home in a 1980's Saturday morning cartoon. From here, we are thrown into episode 2.5 of the Star War saga.

Without giving too much away about the plot: the acting and characters are wooden and two dimensional, even for a kids film (or for that matter, a recent Star Wars film). The dynamic between Anakin Skywalker and his new sidekick, will grate on the nerves of anyone over the age of 8 years old. The stiff animation makes everyone come across as a cross between an action figure and a Thunderbird. For a theatrically released film, it's "shot" (if you can say that about an animated film) in an almost camera-nailed-to-the-ground fashion. Compared to recent Pixar efforts, it looks about as cinematic as a midday tele-movie. The saving grace of this film are the fight scenes, which somewhat make up for the film failings everywhere else.

As a spin off from the Star Wars franchise, it's OK at best. As a kids film, there's much better. As a pilot episode to the upcoming cartoon series, it's watchable and if compared to a direct to DVD Disney sequel, it's decent.
