Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Set between Episode II and III the Clone Wars is the first computer animated Star Wars film. Anakin and Obi Wan must find out who kidnapped Jabba the Hutts son and return him safely. The Seperatists will try anything to stop them and ruin any chance of a diplomatic agreement between the Hutt's and the Republic.
Jar Jar Binks is widely regarded as the most annoying character in the Star Wars Universe. Well I've just found someone even more annoying: Ahsoka Tano.
"True to the spirit of Star Wars"...
"This film is not!"
Following the end of the Star Wars prequel trilogy in 2005, George Lucas realised there was a whole other avenue to explore in order to milk his cash cow: animation. Many other franchises--Star Trek, Batman, X-Men--had dabbled in animated series but Star Wars had never taken the plunge beyond video game tie-ins being the closest. Seeing a narrative gap that also could be exploited, the several year gap between Episodes II & III which held the long-discussed but never seen Clone Wars in its continuity, Lucas knew it was fate: a Clone Wars TV-series telling this story he'd had to skip across between his major prequel movies. Episodes began to be produced by LucasFilm and Lucas became so impressed by what…
This is a thinly veiled 4-Part pilot movie for the CGI television series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and as four arcing episodes of a CGI television show its alright. However as a Star Wars film it simply doesn't work. It doesn't act as bridge between Episode II or III. The story arc while concise isn't very interesting or important even in the grand scheme of the Star Wars universe. The only reason this was given a theatrical release is because George Lucas thought these episodes were so high quality that they deserved to be (I'm really starting to question his artistic vision).
But on a more positive note this does make me want to watch the series this movie…
Why was this made? I am really serious when I ask that question. Some terrible voice acting and uninteresting dialogue really make this movie not worth while. These characters seem to be so bland and boring which is wierd since they're not in the original films. The animation looks so cheesy and cheap and the story isn't all that entertaining either. It lacks humor, cool-looking visuals and even the fun that the other films have. I know I'm ripping off this so much but the fact that this is in connection to one of the best film sagas of all time is pretty amazing. Probably 2008's worst film.
An enjoyable animated escapade in the Star Wars universe that has at least made me interested in watching the series.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Confession - I’m really not much of a Star Wars fan. You strip out the culture, the nostalgia, the history of the original trilogy and take them just at face value as films and they just really aren’t very good – in my opinion, of course. I do, however, appreciate the world Lucas built (from stolen and repurposed ideas) and I honestly think the potential of which has been far better utilised in the stuff outside of the core films. The stuff far less hampered with the limitations of budget and technology like the animation, the comics and the books.
The best of all for me was the 2003 series made by the legend behind some of the greatest cartoons…
The problem with this movie is that it's so much better than the live action films one wonders why the people behind this film didn't work on the latter movies. Anakin is given a personality that isn't whiny and annoying, and in fact all the characters from the live action films are here, all of them treated with more respect than their live action counterparts. The animation is beautiful and the action exciting. There are a few problems here, but they're all minor and much more contained than the problems in the prequels. Well worth the time.
Not a bad animated star wars movie. Made me interested enough in the characters to start watching the series. So I guess mission accomplished...
Okay so I've been craving more Star Wars and I won't lie this was super fun!! I love Ahsoka and I hope she's in the TV series a lot bc the relationship between Anakin and her makes me grin like nothing else. Obi-Wan was great too I've missed him and Padme (YAY for saving the day!!) and Anakin are still dweebs together I love it.
I would LOVE to review all the Star Wars movies but there is no way in Hell that I can pour all of my love for this Saga into a few paragraphs of writing.
Was supposed to fill in the gap between episodes two and three...
At a little over an hour thirty, it was too long...
Was intended too be the start of Clone Wars the series. Instead, Lucas turned a few episodes into a movie. Bad idea...
I have admit though, I liked this Skywalker better than Hayden Christensen's version...

The plot of The Clone Wars isn’t complex. The nefarious Count Dooku (voiced by Christopher Lee reprising his role from Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith) has kidnapped Jabba the Hutt’s son Rotta, later dubbed Stinky. After leading a regiment of clone troopers to victory over the droid army, Obi-Wan Kenobi (James Arnold Taylor) and Anakin Skywalker (Matt Lanter) must find Jabba’s son so they can strike a treaty with the Hutt that will allow them to have a tactical advantage in the ongoing Clone War. As a complication, Anakin has been assigned his own Padawan student, Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein). From the opening frames, it’s obvious that Star Wars: The Clone Wars…
You know it's going to be bad when it doesn't even have an opening crawl.
A list of films that incorporate the Wilhelm Scream. I haven't seen all of these so if you can help…
Probably of little interest to anybody but me, here is my personal film collection on various formats that I've collected…
