Chronicling the events that took place between Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005), this show follows the wartime days of Anakin Skywalker (Matt Lanter), Obi-wan Kenobi (James Arnold Taylor), and Yoda (Tom Kane). This show also brings new characters to the forefront of Star Wars canon, including Anakin's apprentice Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein), and Captain Rex (Dee Bradley Baker).Written by
Captain Rex was based on Dark Horse comics ARC Trooper Alpha. But on realizing there were already three other characters whose name started with A (Anakin, R2-D2, and Ahsoka), George Lucas proposed the name "Rex" instead. 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.
