In Star Wars - The Clone Wars, 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...
Star Wars: The Clone Wars is the 2008 CGI-animated theatrical film that serves as the kick-off to the weekly animated Clone Wars TV series. The concept came about way back in 1977's original Star Wars film, when Leia says in her message to Obi-Wan Kenobi "Years ago, you served my father in the Clone Wars." Initially a simple offhand reference that would reveal Luke's past, the phrase captured fans' attentions for years, until Episode II: Attack of the Clones revealed just how the Clone Wars figured into the battle between Republic and Empire.
The 2008 movie is full of familiar characters--Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Count Dooku--and a new one: Ahsoka Tano, a young girl who has been made Anakin's Padawan. Together, the two headstrong youths embark on a mission to rescue Jabba the Hutt's kidnapped child, battling each other as much as they battle the Separatist forces. There are some good sequences, including duels with Dooku and his assassin, Asajj Ventress, and it's interesting to see some new corners of the Star Wars universe, such as the seamy underbelly of Coruscant. But Ahsoka and her penchant for nicknames that are too cute to stomach seem aimed only at tween-age audiences, and for all that goes on in the movie, nothing really happens in the end. The 2003 animated Clone Wars micro-series, which had the advantage of being directly tied into the live-action film series, had much more emotional bite.
At least some familiar voices return: Samuel L. Jackson (Mace Windu), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO, and still the only actor in every movie), Christopher Lee (Dooku). Other voices include Matt Lanter (Anakin), Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka), and James Arnold Taylor (Obi-Wan). But even the traditional opening crawl has been replaced by a narration more suited for Starship Troopers. Veteran Star Wars fans will probably want to see The Clone Wars--once--but it won't take them long to discover that this Star Wars isn't theirs any more. --David Horiuchi

I think this series is the best example of Star Wars available, much better than the movies. The SW universe works much better as an animated franchise than it does in live action in my opinion. Much easier to suspend disbelief and get taken along with the narrative. The movies (especially the prequels) can seem a little ridiculous at times.
This show contains the definitive portrayal of Obi-Wan, and it even manages to make Anakin likeable and shows a more gradual fall to the darkside than we got to see in the movies with his bizarre 'boo-hoo, i had a bad dream about my girlfriend' turaround. We also get to see Yoda being a bad @ss in this show, and get introduced to cool new characters like Ahsoka; Anakin's Padawan learner.
This show is much, much better than the current 'Rebels' show that replaced it, and i dearly wish that Lucas had waited just a few more years before selling SW to Disney so that The Clone Wars could have been finished. Perhaps we would also not have gotten the steaming pile of doggy do 'The Force Awakens' that was just a complete rehash of A New Hope. The Prequels may have been awful, but at least they tried to be their own thing rather than copying the entire first movie.
It's set betwene episodes two and three.
It's a cgi cartoon.
And it appears to be three episodes of the new tv series the clone wars edited together into one feature film.
the story involves anakin skywalker and his new apprentice - whom he didnt want to take on - having to rescue the kidnapped son of jabba the hutt from separatist forces under the command of the evil count dooku and his associates. the jedi and the clone troopers who fight on their side face a hard journey to reunite jabba with his son.
the animation is rather stylised like a japanese cartoon. whilst the characters do look rather good the backgrounds can be a bit static.
very few of the original voice cast actors [just samuel l jackson as mace windu, anthony daniels as c3po and christpoher lee as count dooku] reprise their roles. all the other characters who have been seen before are voiced by new actors who try and impersonate the performance of the originals.
anakin's apprentice talks like a californian valley girl.
and jabba's son is nicknamed stinky.
so this could all be horribly dumbed down.
but the movie succeeds because it contains the one element that the first three star wars films had, and the second trilogy so conspicuously lacked.
It's never dumbed down.the apprentice may talk like a valley girl but she's a fully rounded character and never gets annoying.
and it contains action scene after action scene all of which are really gripping.
this is quality star wars entertainment of the kind we thought we'd never see again, and it's a hugely enjoyable experience for fans of all ages. if they're prepared to give it a chance.
the dvd has language tracks in english and hebrew and english for the hearing impaired. it also has subtitles in arabic hebrew and icelandic.
it offers direct scene access to the film, and the sole extra is a commentary from the director, the producer, the writer and the editor.
the lack of other extras is disappointing, but the quality of the movie is such that the dvd rates a five stars. unleash the inner star wars fan in you again. it's worth it
