Star Wars: The Clone Wars DVD Review

Jabba the Hutt’s son has been kidnapped and it’s up to Anakin Skywalker, Obi Wan Kenobi, and the rest of the Jedi Knights to save the little Huttlett before Count Dooku and the evil Separatists get to him first. The Clone Wars builds on the Star Wars history, illuminating the time period between Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, but it’s still easy for a newcomer to jump into the story without feeling lost.

New Characters

One surprise is Ahsoka Tano, Anakin’s spunky new Padawan learner (or Jedi in training) who ends up teaching Anakin a few lessons of his own—and watch out for Asajj Ventress, the spindly, bald-headed villainess who’ll stop at nothing to corrupt the honourable reputation of the Jedi.

Action-packed Epic

The energy in Star Wars: The Clone Wars is non-stop, with plenty of light sabre duels, gravity-defying tricks and over-sized, lumbering droids coming at you to keep your eyes darting back and forth over the screen. Make sure you watch the DVD extras for the deleted scenes—there’s a great battle sequence at the Hutt Palace involving a huge, bug-like droid.

The Bottom Line

The Clone Wars may begin with that familiar blue lettering: “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” but instead of the usual scrolling text, we get update on all the current intergalactic events by a voiceover reminiscent of a 1950’s newsreel. That’s not the only difference between this animated adventure and the rest of the Star Wars franchise—the musical score is new, and we’re introduced to some colourful, bold characters—but all of these tweaks work to put The Clone Wars at the forefront of a whole new brand of Star Wars stories. This movie is only the beginning—there’s also a whole cartoon series that follows the Clone Wars saga. Make sure you check out both!

Star Wars: The Clone Wars DVD Rating: 5

SAO is one the few animes I've thoroughly enjoyed. It'd make a great book. SAO2?! Well thanks for letting me know.  Don't know how anyone could mistake Kirito for a girl, but that's just me. Is Sinon anything like Asuna?
