Watch Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a swashbuckling space epic that takes place in George Lucas' Star Wars universe. It extends the plot of the movies by chronicling the adventures of Anakin Skywalker in the years between the prequel films, long before the Original Trilogy. During this time, hot-headed Anakin is a trainee Jedi serving under the wise and enigmatic Qui Gon Jinn. Working together, the two aim to foil the schemes of the evil Separatists and preserve the Galactic Republic.

The Clone Wars is a unique entry into Star Wars canon because it is entirely rendered with Computer Generated Imaging. This leads to amazing lightsaber duels and epic battles between the galaxy's opposing armies of clones and droids, serving the Republic and the Separatists, respectively. Alien landscapes come to life as Anakin and Quin Gon Jinn journey through space on an adventure with countless twists and turns, using the Force to protect film figures like Padme Amidala from the evil Sith Lord, Count Dooku.

Naturally, The Clone Wars is a series replete with foreshadowing about the events that will later rock George Lucas' universe. Viewers will be introduced to characters both familiar and new and will see events that were only spoken of in passing before. For example, Anakin's apprentice Ahsoka Tano allows us to see a protective side of Anakin and brings some balance to her brash master's action. Of course, die-hard fans know the ultimate outcomes, but the series yields up many thrills, chills and mysteries of its own.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars not only distinguishes itself for the crisp and colorful computer animation, but also for the talent of its voice cast. Liam Neeson reprises his role as Qui Gon Jinn and brings his consummate talent to every line. Many of Neeson's castmates are stand-ins, but bring to their roles the flair and flavor of the originals. All in all, this is a great show for any fan of the Star Wars franchise to learn more about the mysterious events leading up to the rise of the Galactic Empire!
