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

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

Ahsoka Tano: Master, Stinky is really sick. He's turning every shade of green except the one he's supposed to be.

Not incredibly awful
17 August 2008 | by short_dancer3See all my reviews

OK so I've been a Star Wars fan since I was about five years old so of course I was dying to see 'The Clone Wars'. I thought that it being animated was going to bother me- seem kid-ish but, surprisingly, it didn't bother me so much. Granted, I'd take the live action any day. I didn't like the new music at all it just didn't have the same Star Wars vibe to it. I definitely enjoyed the little humor thrown in the movie especially between the droids. The voice over work was surprisingly good, as well. I was the only person my age in the theater but that didn't discourage me from having a blast. This movie will probably appeal better to the younger crowd but I'm sure some/most fans can still appreciate it. I probably won't purchase this movie but i enjoyed it all the same.
