Product Description

Star Wars: The Clone Wars: A Galaxy Divided

As a weekly TV series on the Cartoon Network, Star Wars: The Clone Wars was much better than the disappointing movie that preceded it in the summer of 2008. Not bound to the central figures of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, the CGI-animated series had the freedom to explore other characters and corners of the Star Wars universe. The series' first DVD, A Galaxy Divided, collects the first four episodes of season 1. In the first episode, "Ambush," master Yoda accepts a challenge from Sith assassin Asajj Ventress that will determine whether the Toydaria system (think Watto of The Phantom Menace) aligns itself with the Republic or the Separatists. The next three episodes--"Rising Malevolence," "Shadow of Malevolence," and "Destroy Malevolence"--comprise a single-story arc about the Separatists' deadly new weapon controlled by General Grievous on the ship Malevolence. Jedi Master Plo Koon is among the missing when the Separatists strike, but Anakin and his padawan, Ahsoka, bend the rules to try to save him. Space dogfights and tactical maneuvers follow, as Grievous attacks a clone medical station and Padme and C-3PO unwittingly get caught up in the middle of the battle.

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

2.0 out of 5 stars Patience you must have January 22, 2009
The announcement of this bare bones, single disc has caused quite a stir in some fan communities..and apparently here on Amazon as well.

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Series - But ONLY 4 Episodes!!!! January 18, 2009
The movie was great, the series is equally as good, and in case you missed it, It has been airing on Cartoon Network since November of last year (2008).
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great show, but no sale on the DVD January 21, 2009
By snowman
The Clone Wars show is great, I enjoy watching it with my son. But no way I will be buying a dvd with 4 episodes on it. Give me the entire season or no thanks. It's so maddening to see how companies do this stuff with shows geared towards kids.

1.0 out of 5 stars I'll be buying this...When it's the whole series. February 15, 2009
By Matt R.
I don't have the patience or the money to let Lucasfilm string me along. I'm not going to buy this show 4 episodes at a time. This is, however, a great show so let me know when it's the whole series and then we can talk.

And Hollywood wonders why pirating is so widespread... Dont get me wrong it would exist either way. But this kind of release drives the otherwise "honest movie buyer" to rationalize his disgust with George and punish the greed with a few free downloads.

Tv show- sweet. First disc to finally come out- LAME. I vote, as well, to boycott this insult and wait for the set.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wait for the whole season March 3, 2009
My advice as a fellow Star Wars fan and loyal for 30 years and counting is to wait for the whole season DVD that will be released when the first season ends.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wait for the special special SPECIAL edition!!! January 23, 2009
The ENTIRE SERIES will be finished aroung the time these FOUR episodes come out. I won't even buy the movie until I'm positive they aren't going to include that in the series one boxed set for 200 million dollars.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Only first four episodes of a 22 episode season?
Lets see 22 divided by 4 = 5 and a half and at $13 = over $70 for a TV cartoon show? And in Standard format?

Give me a break.

1 star for profiteering.

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.

This selling method has been done before such as with the Avatar or SpongeBob series on Nickelodeon. First release volumes of a season with 3 or 4... Read More

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
