I thought it did a great job of bridging Episode II and III. The animation was also very well done along with the voice talent.

I completely agree with Darth MarcII.

and it's "WASTE of time" kangaroo, like this thread.

I'm a huge Gennedy Tartakovsky fan, and the clone wars series is yet another great effort from him. The acting is good, the animation captivating, and the characters believeable! No way is it a waste of time.....it's not a WAST of time either ;-)

sure, some of the characters attributes and abilities were grossly exaggerated, but overall an entertaining series. I loved asajj ventress....one messed up lady

Im definitely looking forward to the CG version of CW

I loved the stupid comedy like the one where some General guy is talking all about just how many Jedi it will take to destroy his base. "How many did they send? A thousand... A hundred... Two?"


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

I thought it was a waste of time. I liked Dexter's Lab when it first came on, but it's style doesn't go well with SW. I hate the short format and the stories were lame. I wish RotS wasn't over dependant on that crap. Despite the series it followed and some of Episode I and II's shortcomings, RotS managed to rock.

Like you said, same guy, same style. I hated Cartoon Network by the time Samurai Jack aired. Get rid of that 'Cartoon Cartoon' crap like and bring back the Hanna Barbara stuff already. Adult Swim is great though, even with all the anime they show.

I own both DVDs of the Clone Wars animated series. Very well done with great attention to story. Tied in perfectly with Episode III. In fact, I wish some of the animated series could have been done in the film. Such as:

The attack on Coruscant and Grievous' pursuit of Palpatine through the city.
Anakin's prophetic encounter in the cave with the murals.
The ARC Troopers resuing Jedi Master Mundi and the other Jedi from Grievous.

Just a few. I realize due to time constraint that Lucas could not have done this in the film, but it would have been cool.

A waste of time? Hardly.

I have both DVDs as well. They were an interesting and entertaining diversion to have between movies, and a lot of fun to watch.

If you don't happen to like them they are easy to ignore, and don't have to be treated as canon.

But they are just meant to be somewhat light and fun, and a little goofy in spots,.. which is, after all, pretty much all the Star Wars series was ever meant to be.

officially, they are considered the same level of canon as most other EU sources, namely "C-Level" canon according to Lucasfilms current guidleines. (see canon thread)..

many think that because it was on TV and because it introduced General Grievous, that it occupies a higher place in canon than any book for example... it doesnt

In addition, there are some annoying continuity flaws between Cw2 and the prequel novel "Labyrinthe of Evil" (mentioned in ROTS)... still, overall CW was coo/fun IMO, despite the shortcomings

Really? I thought most of the things were explained well enough. Were there certain things in particular?

But they are characters that appear in several novels and comics, and they weren't Clone Wars creations.

I like how the end of the series goes right into EP3.

I liked it overall though I must agree.... To quote a good comic parody 'Grievous to Obi-Wan:" If this where the Clone Wars cartoon, you would be royally screwed!"'

I think it was great to have the clone wars movies. They were awesome and a bit too far intense. Mace Windu was insane in this. Well most of the Jedi were.

Theyre making a 3D animation longer version of the Clone Wars series.

nice, can't wait for it. I actually bought the Version 1 and 2 of the clone wars series. I just had to. It was worth it. I liked the part where that sepretist leader is saying that his base is unbeatable. The jedi would need hundreds of jedi to take this fort down. He was halarious.
