clone wars scene2 Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 2 Premieres in October

The words “Clone Wars” were only mentioned once in the original Star Wars trilogy, while the three “prequel” films (during which the Clone Wars are set) are the generator of all kinds of feelings and mental images that are often hard for me to describe.

What isn’t hard for me to describe is the tone, quality and vision of George Lucas’s most recent animated offering, The Clone Wars – an ongoing series of CGI cartoons that recently received a second season green-light on Cartoon Network. The series will continue to offer literal filler of the years, events, and goings-on which occurred between the feature-film events of the Star Wars prequels.

The Clone Wars second season will offer 22 full episodes, running 30 minutes each, beginning with a special one-hour season premiere on October 2nd, 2009. Season 2 promises more insight about the origins and relationships between established and soon-to-be-introduced Star Wars characters, with a particular focus on the bounty hunters (“Rise of the Fetts?”).

“Satisfaction”… That’s not a word you’ll often hear from anyone when talking about any Star Wars movie prior to the original trilogy, but it’s true for The Clone Wars. All of the pain, embarrassment and “childhood-rape” of the Star Wars prequels gets a lot more polish in this cartoon series.

  1. I actually enjoyed all of the prequel films, but yeah they weren’t up to par with the original trilogy. I wonder when they are gonna kill off Anakin’s padawan….she is just soo annoying.

  2. i believe she gets killed in a deleted scene of episode 3. it’s on the dvd. (someone correct me if i’m wrong..)

  3. isnt that some other lady who looks like her?

  4. You’re thinking of Shaak Ti … same species (Togruta?), but different character. I think they had two different death scenes planned for Shaak Ti at different times, actually filmed one on the Invisible Hand where Grievous stabs her through the back with a lightsaber, and then didn’t use it … so she gets to die in The Force Unleashed instead …

    I enjoy the show for what it is … space opera. It’s not perfect, but when they do a good job on an episode, it’s usually pretty good. I’ll admit I’m not thrilled about seeing the bounty hunters come in as a major presence, though …

  5. yeah the one in Clone Wars is called Ahsoka Tano

  6. Shaak Ti gets killed in the deleted scene by Grievous. But she survives in the real “Star Wars” canon (in the novelization of Episode III she is the last to see Anakin before he joins the Emperor). And she is killed off in The Force Unleashed by Vader’s apprentice on Felucia (about 20 years after Episode III).

    I read somewhere that Ahsoka will be killed off at some point because she is not in Episode III and that her death will somehow affect Anakin (though what happens next in his life we all already know).

    Making mid-quels is confusing…

  7. Cool. The animation in this show is amazing, but hopefully they get some… uhm… “better” dialogue

  8. I wish they would change the voice actor for Yoda. The person they got didn’t sound right as the character.

  9. I like the series tho most of my friends don’t. I wish they’d show how Anakin got his scar.

  10. I can’t stand that show, and I am a HUGE Star Wars fan. The animation is TERRIBLE, IMO. That picture above is a great example of why I think so. It’s got too much of an anime feel to it. I expect better from Lucas. Since SFx are his forte, you would think that the animation would be almost lifelike. Yet, it’s not.

    I just hope that the live-action show is better.

  11. Both my 9 year old son and 6 year old nephew love the Clone Wars cartoons as do many of their peers. If you watch it with the attitude that it is for their generation it is quite enjoyable. Fortunately, the plots are good enough to keep me entertained.

  12. Umm i think i like the Dark horse comics better but i guess this show is okay

  13. I personally love the Clone Wars. Some of the best Star Wars stuff I’ve seen yet. Season two looks like it’s going to be even better, but I am judging by the preview they showed.
    The series…tis AWESOME. I even got my dad hooked on it. Haha.

  14. I actually quite enjoy the clone war series. While the episode may be based around a central childish theme and certain characters simply exist to entertain a younger audience, I’ve found that the series was actually quite entertaining. It’s nice to have a series to explain the finer points of the clone wars and also I was quite surprised about the violence of the series. While it’s not adult entertainment like ‘Afro Samurai’ I still found the series to be quite violent, all points considered. Generally I’m well entertained and looking forward to the next season. Coming from a guy who is by no means an expert but does greatly enjoy Star Wars.

  15. I love this show I am just hoping at some time they include some wookies or a young han solo or something i think that would be pretty cool. anybody else feel the same way let me know what you think.

  16. A young Han solo would be nice,not sure they will thought since the emphasis is on the clone wars charcters

    By the way hello darthed cant wait for season 2!!!!!!!!!

  17. Hello endora, Nine days baby cant wait!
