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.
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…
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.
A very weak Star Wars Film. Luckily the serie gets better with every season. Never understood why Lucasfilms did an theater release for the pilot. Well, probably just for the greed of gain.
Eric Cartman is seemingly a hut, Asoka is more annoying than Anakin in the Phantom Menace, and the dialogue is simply atrocious.
there are people out there that defend this odd chapter in the history of Star Wars theatrical films by making the excuse that it's "for the kids". well, so are the six (so far) proper SW movies and no matter what folks think of some of them, they don't fail quite as magnificently as this one. This disaster isn't a movie and shouldn't be called one. It's four episodes of a kids TV show blown up for the big screen and it feels like one. It's basically a noisy, cluttered theatrical commercial for the Clone Wars TV series (which eventually got rather good). I'll never like the movie and show's Thunderbirds inspired character design (why when you can do ANYTHING…
You can stop making them now. Please...
The fact that it's trying to make Tartakovsky's excellent 2D Clone Wars into a non-canon affair is enough of a reason not to root for this generic, uninteresting and shameless expansion of a franchise that already has ended gloriously.
It was okay. Definitely geared more toward children. But any true Star Wars fan would enjoy this.
More Star Wars was nice to have!
As a film, The Clone Wars doesn't really work all that well. The pace is all over the place and the final third I can almost describe as dull and quite anticlimactic. However, The Clone Wars was never originally intended to be a full length feature film. It's common knowledge now that the first 3 episodes of The Clone Wars TV series were bolted together to form this film and with that knowledge the film can be viewed somewhat different.
Instead of a self contained film, The Clone Wars is better viewed as an extended pilot for the series. It establishes its world and characters for a future series. The issue here is that The Clone Wars series and its…
Should have stayed on TV in my opinion.
As an introduction to the TV show, this is a reasonable introduction to the characters which are vastly improved on over the course of the show. However, it certainly doesn't warrant a theatrical release as it does not work as an Episode 2.5 at all with characters like Ventress and Ahsoka involved and the plot is thin stuff for the film to work as a standalone. The decision to join three episodes together also results in a dominance of action sequences, some of which are impressive (the cliff face assault is great stuff) but overall it gets a little tiresome after a while. A whole subplot involving Padme could easily have been cut. The initial signs for the show however…
I saw this in theaters and disliked it greatly. I rewatched it on Netflix in prep for the TV series and didn't hate it as much. I guess I would call this a necessary evil.
*NOSTALGIA BIAS WARNING*
I love Star Wars. I love animation. Plot twist: I love this movie. As long as you buy into the design style and sort of goofy sensibility, this is some gorgeous, kinetic pop sci-fi.
I've just recently begun watching the series on Netflix, and I wanted to go back and re-evaluate this film which...well, I wasn't the biggest fan of it originally. It has some cool action (the crawling-robot-thing on the cliffside sequence, for example), but too many obnoxious things ('stinky' the Hutt) to really recommend it.
Again, having watched the 1st season of the series, I can at least assure myself that this gets better. Which is good, because I like the animation style - something that seems to have bothered a lot of people (at least initially). At any rate, I'm glad this is on Netflix, because the completist in me needed it to be, but I can't imagine ever watching this again.
