    [TV] Star Wars: The Clone Wars

    Just wanted to make a thread about this awesome cartoon.

    I'm talking about the new CGI cartoon, not the 2003 animated series. The 2003 animated series is great, but was short lived. It's very stylized and follows the storyline of Anakin the most.

    The new cartoon, the one playing season 4 on cartoon network right now is amazing. If your a star wars fan and havent checked it out yet you're really missing out.

    I always made the mistake of watching the episodes out of order. I would watch if I caught it at some point but never really got the whole story. Do yourself a favour and watch it in order. The storylines are great. The animations are amazing and the voice acting is really top notch.

    Some of my favorite characters have got to be Ahsoka Tano (Anakins padawan), Cad Bane, Ziro the Hutt, Aurra Sing. The troopers are also amazing, the season 3 first episode deals with the clone troopers in detail.

    Anyways, here's a season 4 teaser that I think will make my point.

    I really hate the prequels. Is this better written? I dont want to get annoyed with star wars 10 days before SWTOR comes out

    I started watching to get in the mood for SWTOR. It's very well written. It does get mired in politics sometimes but I'd say 75% of it is Jedi action.

    Good good! I think it will be interesting for you. If you're into SWTOR I can see where they pulled a lot of the classes from. You have Assassins, Jedi Knights, Consulars, Agents, Bounty Hunters all in the series.

    It does kinda focus sometimes a lot on Ahsoka Tano. She's the 3rd main character I guess next to Anakin and Obi-wan. She's a 14-15 year old Togruta Jedi in training. I thought it would make the show kinda silly focusing around that, but shes actually one of the best characters on the show. She's kinda a rebel like Anakin but she's wise and measured like Yoda. The episode Assassin (s03e07) shows what a powerful Jedi she becomes. Really good stuff.

    Wait when did this show start!?!?

    I remember the original cartoon but it never really clicked with me. I've been seeing Clone Wars pop up around the internet but assumed it was the old 2003 one.

    the only thing that saddens me is they are starting to get into Anakins turning to the dark side

    which means there isn't that much left to the series

    i hope i'm wrong


    i do have to ask someone else's opinion though i've been noticing that even though there is no blood they do have a lot of death (i know it's a war) but sometimes i wonder how it's on cartoon network and for kids

    I think its rated PG. Not sure.

    They're also putting out a Star Wars live action series thats set between episode III and episode IV. Rise of the Empire shit.

    50 episodes written so far.

    Well it wouldn't make much sense to call it "The Clone WARS" if there was no deaths, although they really take it overboard a few times.

    It's still worth the watch though, even if there are massive variations to quality.

    Yeah, would have been cool for sure.

    Actually Ahsoka's makeup is inspired by the Miyazaki film Princess Mononoke.
