If you remember episode 4 and 5 with as fond memories as me, then i am sure that you will enjoy this. For action characterisation and story this leaves the first '3' film episodes standing. By the creator of Samurai Jack this has style and brings back the true excitment of Star Wars. Both volumes are excellent and are enjoyed by both my children as well.

With six, twelve minute episodes, rather than the five minute episodes of the first animated clone wars series, volume 2 has more depth and development; this makes for a more enjoyable watch. it has all the excitement volume 1 but gains from more story, which also ties in perfectly to episode three (in fact the end of the series is the start of the movie).
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.

like this more than the new version, with all its suped up graphics and money spent on it. Bit like the new three star wars films what he gained in effects he lost in story telling and good stylised imagery. I also liked the graphic novels of the old republic because of this, the days of Ulic and Exar, the likes of Thon getting it on.... the fight between Anakin and Asajj on Yavin has to be one of the best ever, there are a couple of episodes that aren't as good but not that many, I also like Obi wan Vs Durge with lances, the first known arrival of the leader of the droids who is hunting Jedi in the downed space ship, what was his name again....? Anyway he's far less a coward here than he is later on, which I liked.

This animated 'series' achieves what the whole Star Wars prequel disaster missed by miles; it captures the spirit and fun of the original films and, despite being 2D, it has more depth than Hayden Christiansen can ever dream of.

A second action packed DVD of the emmy-winning Star Wars: The Clone Wars is just what any Star Wars fan really wants.

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. After a lengthy battle on the Coruscant tram, Grievous catches up with the Jedi, slaying Foul and Roron, and leaving Shaak Ti bound in mechanical wiring, while he steals Palpatine away, leaving Mace Windu to find Shaak Ti.

After saving the Nelvaani from the droid threat, Anakin and Obi-Wan return to their Fleet to find a message from Coruscant: The Sepratists have invaded and Kidnapped the Chancellor! Anakin and Obi-Wan race to the planet, and the cartoon ends with the beginning of the fantastic space battle that starts Episode III.

The top notch animation never stops these cartoons from feeling like true Star Wars, and this DVD should take pride of place on any fans shelf.

The 'Clone Wars' cartoons are not only great fun but tell the story of the legendary war from the Star Wars history with pleasing attention to detail. I don't think this second batch entirely matches the first in terms of adrenaline and pace but it's nonetheless very watchable and General Grevious steals the show. His character is far better depicted than in 'Revenge of the Sith' and you understand why he is such a threat to the Jedi.

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.

The 2nd volume of the Clone Wars sees a change to the format of the first. Now each episode is around 15mins long and have a little more diologue, never fear though all the fast paced action is still there.
The story again follows our favourite Jedi Knights as they fight the battles which made up the clone wars, climaxing in with Obi-Wan and Anakin recieving news of Palpatine's kidnap. Again the Animation is first rate and the story is enjoyable filling in the gap between Episodes II and III.
If possible even better than the first, a must have.

Forget The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones! This is proper old-style Star Wars without a Jar-Jar in sight! Great animation and brilliant storytelling make this top-knotch Lucasfilm fare, easily on a paralel with the original trilogy and a fitting prologue to the excellent Revenge of the Sith. If you don't buy this, don't call yourself a Star Wars fan. Truly proper stuff!!!

This series 2 of Clone Wars, with chapter 21-25 is great.
There may only be five Episodes but they are nearly 15 minutes long each.
This is better than the first series and has only two letdowns.
1: I was hoping for the movie cast, not a new cast for the show.
2: The mission Anakin has to take on Nelva is very boring.

While I personally prefer the more recent clone wars series this dvd will be sure to entertain any star wars fan. Set just before episode 3 it is a enjoyable run up up to Revenge of the Sith although I did struggle to work out whether the story is actually canon.
A must buy for anyone who enjoys the hum of a swinging lightsabre
