The complete series... it is not - 4 episodes only... there are
on 13 May 2009
This volume of 'The Clone Wars' contains the first 4 episodes (as marked across the top of the case) of the TV series recently aired on childrens satelite channel Cartoon Network.
The 4 episodes are :
2. Rising Malevolence
3. Shadow of Malevolence
4. Destroy Malevolence
Episode 1 starts things off with Yoda himself leading a secret mission and facing a droid army led by the assassin Ventress. Episodes 2-4 cover a story arc about a massive new Separatist spaceship called 'Malevolence'. It has a deadly weapon that threatens to singlehandedly destroy the Republic fleet and thus influence the outcome of the war. The Jedi plan to find and destroy the ship, with Anakin Skywalker leading the way.
The actual episodes are great fun and capture the Star Wars spirit from the old trilogy, but the release of only 4 episodes is a bit naughty of Lucasfilm as they will soon be releasing a complete Season 1 DVD set (with all 22 episodes). This is why the item only deserves 3 stars and so, until the full season is available, patient you must be!
