Obi-Wan, Anakin and Yoda continue the battle where the movie left off in this new animated series, airing on the Cartoon Network. Kidzworld gets out our lightsabers, and gets into the Clone Wars.

Main Characters

  • Anakin Skywalker - A Jedi Knight, Anakin is a bit of a rebel. He is closely watched by the Jedi Council, many of whom believe he is too unstable to be a Jedi. He becomes known as “The Hero With No Fear” during the Clone Wars, and takes on a student (padawan learner) called Ahsoka Tano.
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi - A Jedi Master, Obi-Wan was Anakin’s teacher when he was a padawan learner. During the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan’s heroics earn him a seat on the Jedi Council.
  • Yoda - A Jedi Master who becomes a General during the Clone Wars. Yoda believes in Anakin’s abilities, but wonders about trusting him to use the Force for good.
  • General Grievous - A separatist and enemy of the Republic, Grievous is out to take down the Jedis and to further the Dark Side in the galaxy.
  • Count Dooku - Leader of the separatists and trainer of Dark Jedis, also known as the Siths.
  • Padme Amidala - Queen of the Planet Naboo and its representative in the Galactic Senate. Padme and Anakin’s destinies are bound to one another, even though she may not know it yet.
  • Ahsoka Tano - Anakin’s padawan student, Ahsoka learns from the Jedi Master as he changes from the rebellious child into the reserved Jedi Knight who would eventually cross to the Dark Side and become Darth Vader.
