Chronicling the events that took place between Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005), The Clone Wars follows the wartime days of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda. The Clone Wars bridges the gap between The Original and Prequel Trilogies of The Star Wars Saga and brings new characters to the forefront of Star Wars canon, including Anakin's apprentice Ahsoka Tano, and Captain Rex.Written by

Taking place between Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith; The Clone Wars highlights the war between the Republic and Separatists. Considering this event was basically glossed over in the movies, it's great to be able to see the war for ourselves through this series.
The Clone Wars is one of best animated shows I have seen. It balances the goofy moments you can find in Star Wars, and animation in general, with serious moments. Also, it gets progressively darker as the show continues. Most of all, it actually makes The Clone Wars interesting. This series could've easily fell into a trap similar to one that the new trilogy is in, but it's completely fresh, and a great expansion to the Star Wars lore. It gives more development to characters from the prequel trilogy; such as Anakin, Obi-Wan, Padmé, etc. And introduces new characters, that you'll grow to love just as much, mainly Ahsoka and Rex. The Clone Wars also gives the villains some more time to shine; with General Grievous, Count Dooku, Palpatine, and another returning Sith being prominently featured.
Overall, the show is a great addition to the Star Wars universe. The various scenarios and battles that our favorite characters are thrown into are interesting, but above all, actually entertaining and fun. I am completely hyped for the return of this show, and hopefully Disney does the rest of the series justice. Give this a chance if you're a Star Wars fan. The amount of material here is sufficient for even the biggest fan of the franchise.
