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

Did You Know?


This was the first Star Wars movie to not have an introductory text scroll during the title sequence. Instead, the premise of the story is set up by an announcer's voice-over describing background scenes. 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 »


Ahsoka Tano: We're taking this junker? We'd be better off on that big bug.
Anakin Skywalker: Get aboard and prime the engines. Assuming it has engines.

Fresh blood
5 June 2018 | by BiiivALSee all my reviews

What can I say about the new chapters of the great saga of the "Far-distant Galaxy"? To say that it is amazing, that it is exciting and that it is fascinating - means to say nothing.

The series seemed to have poured new blood into the Star Wars. And now the fact that I was impressed with him:

1. Clones ... for the first time in the history of the series (including numerous comic books, books, games and individual stories) the clones showed LIVE! From now on, these are not soulless faceless machines for murders. These are ordinary people, just like you or me. They also think, they experience, they feel and feel fear. For the first time in the history of the series, my heart bleeds when another soldier settles on the ground with a black hole in white mandororian armor. Each clone is like a brother and at the same time is incredibly unique. This is shown especially well in the series (it seems first, but perhaps the memory changes me), where Master Yoda with a bunch of clones had to make his way to the ruler of no-remember-what-planet to conclude a contract before Darth Tiranus (Count Dooku in the common people). It is there that the great Yoda reveals to each of his brothers his uniqueness.

2. Music. Well ... what can I say. The music of John Williams is, of course, good. But ... it is a little outdated (in my case - fed up). In addition, it absolutely does not approach the action, which unfolds in the series. Kevin Kainer was able not only to create an atmosphere of what is happening. His compositions literally tell us what's happening on the screen, perfectly fitting into the picture (although it would have been perfectly listened to without it).

3. Graphics. Many scold this series and full-length for the graphic component. I do not know about you, but I liked it. And George Lucas, too. In one of his interviews, he said that he specifically decided to use just such a graphic style.

4. Humor. A good deal of sound humor is also there. If someone says that the droids joke flatly and in a way that is not funny, then do not believe this person, because most likely he does not have a sense of humor, or he did not hear, but learned about it from the stories of one deaf-mute (yes forgive me these people, for I did not mean anything insulting). If many of the droid's phrases are simply ridiculous, then some make you literally cry with laughter.

5. The plot. I'm delighted that I can finally see what happened during the clone war, so I'll add it to this list.

6. Action. Neither in a fairy tale, nor describe with a pen. Such brutal battle scenes you have never seen, and camera work just blows the roof) Music adds effect.

Bottom line: what do we get as a result? A grinding blend that is svezhakom in the saga. But the most important thing here is the mapping of clones. The number of Jedi here is quite understandable, since this is the series of fighters in white armor. Honestly, I would gladly have looked at all six episodes again if they were re-released in the same style.
