Star Wars: The Clone Wars - A Galaxy Divided -Season 1, Vol. 1
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
The "Clone Wars" goes back to the original Star Wars film when Obi-Wan Kenobi tells Luke Skywalker that he was once a Jedi knight the same as your father and that they fought together in the Clone Wars. Since that moment fans have been obsessed with what the clone wars were. This new TV series takes place immediately after the events of Star Wars-Episode II: Attack of the Clones. The series follows Obi-Wan Kenobi and his apprentice Anakin Skywalker and introduces us to some new characters such as Ahsoka Tano a girl Jedi knight as well as characters we already know.]]>
Two flaws hinder A Galaxy Divided: the first is the decision to release the DVD as a kid-focused product, with only four episodes out of the full season's 22. Second is the failure to anamorphically enhance the picture for widescreen televisions, meaning black bars on the top, bottom, and sides unless you're watching on a traditional squareish 1.33 (4x3) screen. (Stretching the picture to fit 1.78 doesn't look too bad, though.) --David Horiuchi
- Four episodes: Ambush, Rising Malevolence, Shadow of Malevolence, Destroy Malevolence

Here's the skinny: At the bottom of the press release for this single DVD, Lucasfilm clearly states a box set for Season 1 (with extras) is in the works, including Blu Ray. I have to give them credit for at least telling us up front that this DVD is not intended for the people that will want the whole season. Although I am not sure who the intended consumer is for this, I guess almost an hour and a half for $14 is enough to keep the little ones quiet in the back seat of the SUV and make it so you don't have to worry about losing a disc from your box set.
For releasing a no frills single DVD: 1/5
For content: 3.5/5
For telling me to wait a few months for a season box set: 5/5
I was going to dive in and purchase this, but once again the movie makers have decided to give you and I the usual "rip off"
Here are the first four episodes, that carry on pretty much exactly from where the movie finished, and make no mistake the stories, animation and acting (voices) are all excellent, but I ask again, 4 Episodes???
My kids have seen at least 12 screened on TV at around 25 minutes per episode. Are you telling me that we need to buy 3 or 4 separate DVD's to get a whole series already shown on TV? That's a joke.
My advice, when it's all old news (in a few months) a "complete collection" will come out, and I guarantee it will be cheaper. Vote with your wallets folks, stop letting them rip us off.

There's another DVD scheduled for release soon that contain 5 or so episodes, don't buy that, wait for the whole season. That DVD according to speculation and reports most likely will be released in may or june.
So, save your credits and have "patience" as Yoda advises.
However, this DVD contains great episodes of the series, with the famous "Malevolence" trilogy.
I don't know the extras yet, but perhaps those extras will be repeated again with the whole season DVD.
This is just quick cash LFL wants to have due to the high demand of the series.
Star Wars is a great franchise, I prefer the later episodes of this show personally, but this attempt at a dvd release is like buying the single before the album comes out.
Fans make excuses for Lucasfilm all the time in relation to their releases, and their paying for it.
DON'T BUY THIS DVD, PLEASE SHOW THAT THE CUSTOMER, NOT THE STUDIO, IS ALWAYS RIGHT!!!

|Only 4 episodes||
I'm waiting until they release the full season which has 22 episodes. I guess they're releasing the first 4 episodes for people who want them now.

|Not anamorphic widescreen?||
Yes, I haven't even opened it and have noticed that it says 'Standard Edition' on the back. This is the same format as say the version you can download on iTunes - cropped off at the sides, at least an inch-and-a-half of screen image. This show is produced in 16x9, 2:40 Widescreen, the... Read More
