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.
The third season of the Clone Wars TV series has no major story arc: it's just a collection of adventures tied together by the recurring characters. Much of the first half of the season is devoted to diplomatic maneuvering in and out of the Senate. The filmmakers use the behind-the-scenes manipulations of the Trade Council and Banking Clan to make rather pointed political statements about the deregulation of the banks and the cost of the Separatist War impoverishing education, infrastructure, and health care on the planet Mandalore. The directors crank up the action in the second half of the season. When Count Dooku betrays his personal assassin Asajj Ventress, she tries to take revenge with some help from a new Sith killer, the unfortunately named Savage Opress. These episodes involve a world of witches that feels out of place in the Star Wars galaxy. The season comes to a slam-bang conclusion with five linked episodes involving the rescue of Jedi General Piel from a Separatist prison--an adventure that introduces a CG version of Chewbacca. The filmmakers appear to have spent most of their budget on special effects (rain, lava, explosions, lightning) and surface texturing (down to the dirt Padawan Ahsoka Tano gets on her skin). The animation is uneven at best, with many of the characters moving like weightless puppets. Not surprisingly, the Droids and robotic characters move more convincingly than the living ones. Jabba and the other Hutts lack the oozing, walrus-like bulk of the original, but the mask-faced Savage Opress executes some fancy battle moves. (Not rated: suitable for ages 10 and older: violence, violence against women, torture) --Charles Solomon

-For the Clone Wars season 3 - I'd rate it a 4-5 stars
-For the actual packaging? 2 stars is almost too much.
I purchased this thinking that I would get the same great package that I got with the 1st 2 season.
Sadly, I was sorely disappointed today when it arrived...and was in a normal Bluray jewel case.
Lucasfilm this is quite possibly the biggest disappointment I've had with any of you products in my lifetime. Whoever at your company that decided to sell this without the same package deal that the 1st 2 seasons had should be demoted or let go. I'd go as far as to say that not having the deluxe packaging option the 1st 2 had is inexcusable.
As far as the season goes, EXCELLENT and it only gets better.
Please, LucasFilm (and now Disney) - PLEASE bring back the better packages like Seasons 1 and 2!!! :(
Once I got over the fact that the case is about 20% less cool than the other season sets that I own, it's overall a very good release. The episodes in this season are a little confusing since they are in broadcast order instead of chronological order, and some of these episodes actually take place during Season 2! Even though the fanboys haven't yet figured out the correct viewing order for this season, the story arcs here are at least good, and there are some great cameos this season that the fans will love. Some famed characters from the movies make their animation debut, and even the titular heroes from the video game "Republic Commando" get an appearance. The transfer quality is top-notch as always, and if you've been collecting the show on Blu-Ray this is obviously a must buy.
Of the three seasons that have been aired and are now currently available for purchase, this is the weakest but at the same time the strongest. Now, how can this be? Well let me start by saying the series takes off on a very strong note. We are reintroduced to the clone rookies from season 1 and given an interesting look at the training future clone troopers go through. This episode called Clone Cadets is a great opener as it takes us back to the beginning of the war. It adds more depth to the clone trooper as an individual. In this episode we see the young cadets struggling to prove themselves to the ARC Commanders and their own instructors. We are also introduced to Jedi Master Shaak Ti which is cool. The second episode returns to the present and dishes up a Sep attack on Kamino! The third episode is good and the ones up to 12 are good but they are the reason I do not give this season 5 stars. I felt that these episodes while interesting detracted from the action that drives the Clone Wars as a series. Ep 4-12 are largely concerned with Senate matters and while intersparsed with some excitement are not what I expected. The first and second seasons were consistent with keeping the show about the clones in the field and the Jedi leading them. However a sizable chunk of the season turns our attention towards the political war fought in the senate. I understand that the battleground of politics and the one dominated by clones are related but the politics should not command the stage. This series is meant to chronicle the struggle of the Grand Army of the Republic and the Jedi who reluctantly lead it. I want to jump into the minds of the clones on the front lines. On the subject of politics I find Padme to be naive and her views on how to end the war rather foolish. One of my biggest gripes about this season is having to listen to her more often. Now I understand that this series is also aimed at children but when you look at the darker turns the series keeps taking you can see that it is looking to broaden its appeal. This becomes quite apparent in episodes 12-22. These episodes are the nuts and bolts of the Clone Wars and will please every viewer. Get ready for some familiar faces and some big surprises.
So in conclusion let me say the third season is worth buying and worth watching over and over again. It has its down point but recovers and makes up for lost action. So in the words of 3P0, "Here we go again."
