All five 12-minute chapters of Volume 2 are included in this release, chronicling Anakin's rise to Jedi Knight; as well as General Grievous' daring attack against the Republic capital, leading directly into the events of 'Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith'. As the Republic desperately fights back against the Separatist forces, Anakin Skywalker is promoted to the status of Jedi Knight, forgoing the spirit trials in an effort to boost the Jedi Order's flagging morale, in the face of General Grievous's relentless assault. While Mace Windu and Yoda protect Coruscant from the advancing Droid forces, Anakin and Master Kenobi are dispatched to the planet of Nelvaan with the mission of tracking down Grievous. However, instead of Grievous, the two heroes discover a race of creatures who have been enslaved by the Separatists and Anakin vows to free them no matter what the cost. Meanwhile on Coruscant, Grievous has staged an outrageous kidnap attempt on Chancellor Palpatine, as Shaak Ti, Ronet Corobb and Foul Moudama desperately try to keep the Jedi-slayer at bay.

This is the best slice of animated star wars yet. I'm now looking forward to the new SW animated series being prepared for 2007.
Anakin's liberation of those weird mutant creature things hampers the story quite badly and I thought it was by and large a dull distraction from the Clone War itself. However, the lead up to the Chancellor's kidnapping and the beginning of 'Revenge of the Sith' is perfectly done and with buckets of action to boot. Tartakovsky's dedication to the project is evident and he delivers a fabulous overview of the conflict. It will be interesting to see how the forthcoming (and official it should be said) CGI TV series/ movie of 'The Clone Wars' will compare and if indeed it borrows from this version.
In a new format compared to the first 20 volumes of the animated series, these chapters are now 15 minutes long, allowing for more character development and even more lightsaber-swinging Jedi action!
Beginning where chapter 20 left off, Ki-Adi Mundi, Shaak Ti and Aayla Secura are rescued from the metal clutches of General Grievous, with a little help from the ever helpful ARC trooper Fordo and the squad he led with Obi-Wan on Muunilist (see the first volume of Clone Wars).
Anakin and Obi-Wan fighting in the Outer rim seiges after their victory on Muunilist, the first chapter really sets up the brotherly relationship between the two characters that will be destroyed come the events of Episode III. Anakin and Obi-Wan then travel to the planet Nelvaan, where Anakin finds that he is the prophecised warrior of the indigenous Nelvaani and goes through trials which will foreshadow his downfall to the Dark side.
Meanwhile, on Coruscant, the Core planet of the Star Wars universe, the cunning capture of Chancellor Palpatine by General Grievous mentioned in the crawl at the start of Episode III takes place, with Mace Windu and Yoda marshalling the defense of the planet from the onslaught of Battle droids. Meanwhile, Jedi Master Sasee Tiin takes on the Sepratist fleet high above the planet.
Jedi Master Shaak Ti, with the help of 2 new jedi, the furry Foul Moudama and the Ithorian Roron Corrob, is charged with protecting the Chancellor, and must flee to shelter with the mechanical menace Grievous hot on their heels.Read more ›
Perhaps the most talked about part of this release is the foreshadowing of how Anakin will be tempted to evil, as symbolised by his robotic hand growing larger than larger in a psychadelic dream sequence, as part of his personal test and trial. This mirrors the part in Ep VI where Luke Skywalker examines his own hand, and realises that he could become his father's replacement, a new tool for the Emperor.

Volume Two is much more interesting than Volume One. It really expands on the Clone Wars and adds plenty to the prequel trilogy.Published 13 months ago by Mr. Power
Bought because I hadn't seen them on TV. Interesting enough. Not essential viewing unless you are a Star Wars geek, in which case you already have it.Published 15 months ago by Enjay
