The focus of The Clone Wars is the clones. This movie, and the 30 minute episodes shown every week on The Cartoon Network, go to great pains to show us the clones are individuals with their own personalities and quirks. They realize they are just Bantha fodder in the great Republic war machine, yet they fight and die without question. If you're hurt, just a bit, every time a clone dies... that was point of this exercise.
Not only do we learn of the clones, but also of the other Master Jedi. The Sith and the Separatists are explored in great detail. The Separatist droids provide the comic relief. You'll recognize Lucas's dated corny-ness in every moronic thing the droids say.
If you don't like it, no big deal. Go watch the original triology on Laser Disc and enjoy. Star Wars is George's story done George's way... not yours, mine or ours to tell. The Clone Wars isn't perfect. Some parts are down right annoying. I've changed a lot since May 1977... and so has Star Wars.
ALSO keep in mind that Lucas is trying to broaden his appeal to kids with this movie's style & story telling as well as with the series on CTN so it's going to be, over all, a bit more simple in its execution but no less entertaining. Don't watch this expecting an Oscar performance. It is a CGI cartoon after all, how serious/critical are you supposed to take it? It has more of an Episode 2 feel to it, for me at least, but the action sequences are just as long, intense & still 'edgy' for a CGI cartoon. They flowed well & were non-stop action. Clone troopers got it pretty bad in this movie & the lightsaber duels left me wanting for more(longer duels, that is) but were pretty good for a CGI cartoon. It held my interest the whole time though the plot of helping the huts was a bit odd. The dialogue could have used a little help but what star wars movie couldn't? I wouldn't recommend buying this movie until you see it first but if you keep in mind what this movie is supposed to be/do & you don't take it as seriously as some, then you should have fun & you'll be just fine. Anakin's apprentice is there for the young girls as well as to be the little miss know-it-all pain in the butt for Anakin the way he was to Ben (it's called irony) so she may be a bit annoying for some out there (she's better in the TV series)...and who in this world isn't about money? There is a lot of story that can be told between episodes and he wants to tell it (whether is executed well or not). We all would do it too & you all know it.Read more ›
The movie takes place between episodes 2 and 3 and has some familiar characters such as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Count Dooku, Mace Windu, General Grievous, Senator Palpatine, C-3PO, R2-D2, and Jabba The Hutt. The plot involves the kidnapping of Jabba The Hutt's Son by Dooku and his gang in an attempt to lay the blame on the Jedis in order to cause the Hutt's to join the separatist's movement against the Republic.
Upon it's release the movie received many negative reviews some of which compared it to a Saturday Morning Cartoon, which to be honest, it basically is. And of course there is now the Clone Wars TV show that followed it now airing on TV. Yet despite all of that, I still enjoyed the movie a lot. It had it's moments and I really enjoyed the excellent CGI animation and thought the battles and spaceships and scenery and characters and lightsaber fights were all very well done. The only downside that I can think of is the character Ahsoka Tano, who is a Padawan to Anakin Skywalker. She's an okay character and has some good scenes in the movie, but she's a little too cutesy for my liking.Read more ›

Not sure if this helps so long after your question has been posted but this is the Best Buy exclusive version of the Clone Wars animated movie. It is a metallic hard case, 2 disc widescreen version of the movie. I don't think there is a difference outside of the case.
