Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Posted on: 24 June 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

The next chapter of the Star Wars story is a feature-length cartoon, to be released this summer, and you can watch the trailer here.

Star Wars takes on a new look in the first-ever animated feature from Lucasfilm Animation, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

The action takes place between Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and the last Star Wars film, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, released in 2005.

It's over 30 years since the first Star Wars film was released in 1977, but this and further instalments continue to appeal to old and new fans alike. The latest movie promises an exciting plot, whether you have been following the story since that original film, or would like your grandchildren to feel the force for the first time.

As the Clone Wars sweep through the galaxy, the heroic Jedi Knights struggle to maintain order and restore peace. More and more systems are falling prey to the forces of the dark side as the Galactic Republic slips further and further under the sway of the Separatists and their never-ending droid army.

Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan learner Ahsoka Tano find themselves on a mission with far-reaching consequences, one that brings them face-to-face with crime lord Jabba the Hutt. But Count Dooku and his sinister agents, including the nefarious Asajj Ventress, will stop at nothing to ensure that Anakin and Ahsoka fail at their quest.

Meanwhile, on the front lines of the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Master Yoda lead the massive clone army in a valiant effort to resist the forces of the dark side.

Here's the trailer:
