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. Pictures

Trivia

First Star Wars movie, since Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983), to feature an in-cockpit view of the jump to hyperspace. George Lucas purposely did not use this iconic shot in any of the prequels, so as not to lessen the impact of seeing it for the first time in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) (assuming one watches the movies in chronological order).

Goofs

Due to the limited number of models available during early production of The Clone Wars, many assets had to be reused in the background. Obi-Wan Kenobi's body was reused (complete with Jedi emblem on the shoulder) for two Gran (Ree-Yees) aliens seen in both Jabba and Ziro's palace. Similarly, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's body was reused for two Ithorian (Hammerhead) aliens. Noticeably, these Ithorians have human hands. See more »

Quotes

Anakin Skywalker: This smells like Count Dooku to me.
Ahsoka Tano: I think it's little stinky you smell.

If you liked Attack of the Cl...no wait...if you liked Caravan of Courage...
14 August 2008 | by TheRowdyManSee all my reviews

The traditional scrolling prologue is replaced by a transatlantic voice that would have been at home in a 1940's serial. From here, we are thrown into episode 2.5 of the Star War saga. This is pretty generic Saturday morning cartoon fare with wooden voice acting and two dimensional characters. 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 there is nothing cinematic about it and feels like a feature length pilot for the animated series.

As a spin off from the Star Wars franchise, it's OK but purely for kids only.
