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.

Did You Know?


Sitting at the bar in Ziro's palace is the Trandoshan trader Gha Nachkt, who would go on to play an important part in the season one episodes Downfall of a Droid (#1.6) and Duel of the Droids (#1.7). Also at the bar is the Aqualish (aka Walrus Man) technician seen in several episodes of the TV series, including the aforementioned 'Duel of the Droids'. See more »


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 »


Captain Rex: Who's the youngling?
Ahsoka Tano: I'm Master Skywalker's Padawan. The name's Ahsoka Tano.
Captain Rex: Sir, I thought you said you'd never have a Padawan.
Anakin Skywalker: There's been a mix-up. The youngling isn't with me.
Ahsoka Tano: Stop calling me that! You're stuck with me, Skyguy.
Anakin Skywalker: [Rex bursts out laughing] What did you just call me? Don't get snippy with me, little one. You know, I don't even think you're old enough to be a Padawan.
Ahsoka Tano: Well maybe I'm not, but Master Yoda thinks I am...

Definitely not in the league of the other 6 films...
10 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went to go see a special screening today at 1:00 at the Mainside theater in Camp Pendleton. My little brothers, 5 and 4, were very excited because they are huge Star Wars fans. I guess you could say I was excited too. Well, I did not know what I was going to expect, since this was the first animated Star Wars. First I must say this was not as grandeur as the other Star Wars, but I am pretty sure that it wasn't meant to be. And I know that this movie is going to kick off the new 100 episode cartoon. I was a little disappointed that they had new voice overs such as the one for Kenobi and Skywalker, however the new voice over for Kenobi is hard to tell that it is different. For Anakin, however, I did not think that there could be a more annoying voice than Hayden Christensen. YOu actually are going to miss Christen's voice. But I tried to not pay attention to that, which was very distracting, and focus on the whole picture, the plot. In my opinion, the plot was too simplistic for a Star Wars film because the whole entire movie is about Anakin and his new padawan, I forget her name, trying to rescue Jabba the Hutt's son. Thats it. Kenobi and Yoda are barely in the film. I loved the fight scenes and the ones at the end definitely pulled the movie up. And the grand scale scenes were pretty impressive. I wasn't too impressed with some the humor they tried to pull off. I mean some of the slapstick comedy sucked so bad that I almost wanted to leave ethe theater. there were some humorous moments that actually made me chuckle a bit but most of the comedy was meant for kids younger than 10 years old. Great movie for the little kids and people that are going to watch the TV series but you need to be a true Star Wars fan to love this movie.
