Product Description

The Emmy Award-winning animated series continues with Star Wars: Clone Wars Volume Two, available for the first time on DVD. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, this series captures George Lucas' vision in a dynamic animated style that is a visual delight for all ages. As seen on Cartoon Network, Star Wars: Clone Wars Volume Two concludes the epic adventures that bridge the story between Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Witness firsthand the trials of Anakin Skywalker and the secret ceremony in which he becomes a Jedi Knight. Then, follow the Jedi as they attempt to repel a surprise attack by General Grievous, on the galactic capital, Coruscant. Clone Wars Volume Two is filled with exciting galactic battles that lead directly to the beginning of Revenge of the Sith.

Volume 2 of the stylish animated "microseries" Star Wars: Clone Wars picks up where volume 1 left off, with General Grievous threatening a group of Jedi. The war between the Republic and the Separatists continues to rage, and due to desperate need, Anakin Skywalker is bestowed the title of Jedi Knight, though he must undergo one final rite of passage by traveling to the frozen planet of Nelvan. The action is at its fiercest when the Separatists launch an overwhelming assault on Coruscant, and Masters Windu and Yoda get to show their stuff to defend the city. However, it's just a diversion from the main goal: Grievious's attempt to kidnap Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. In the series' most dramatic moment, Shaak Ti and other Jedi try to fend off the droid's attack. Clone Wars Volume 2 aired on the Cartoon Network in March 2005, and it's a bit more substantial than volume 1, taking place in five 12-minute chapters (nos. 21-25) rather than 3-minute chapters. And while volume 1 was mostly flat-out action, the developments in volume 2 lead directly to the opening of Episode III, Revenge of the Sith. And you even get small tidbits such as C-3PO (again voiced by Anthony Daniels) unveiling his new gold look, Padme sporting a cinnamon-bun hairdo, and the reason why General Grievous has difficulty breathing. Let casual fans content themselves with the feature films; Clone Wars remains essential viewing for the Star Wars aficionado. (Rated Y7 for cartoon action and violence) --David Horiuchi

DVD features
In both a commentary track and a featurette, Genndy Tartakovsky and his creative team discuss the making of Clone Wars and how it ties into Episode III, Revenge of the Sith. If you're not a fan of the Lego Star Wars, you might become one after you watch the amusing "Revenge of the Brick" trailer. There's also the same Xbox demo of Battlefront II that was on the Sith DVD, and the Dolby 5.1 sound is an improvement over volume 1's 2.0 Surround. --David Horiuchi

Finally, the second volume of the animated series Star Wars: Clone Wars by the Samurai Jack production team. Director Genndy Tartakovsky, obviously a fan of the Star Wars Saga, fills this series with more scenes that fans have waited for that even George Lucas hasn't delivered, for example: The "Knighting" of a Jedi, Windu fighting airborne, while Yoda fights an overwhelming invasion force on Coruscant, much more. The angular stylized animation is a visual feast for all generations. This volume continues where the first left off, with General Grievous, while the war continues, Anakin Skywalker undergoes his final rite of passage, while Master Shaak Ti and other Jedi try to defend the Supreme Chancellor from the General. Clone Wars Vol. II. aired just before the release of Episode III., the series efficiently bridges the Episode II/III. gap, the events in the final chapters (21-25) leading directly to the opening of the movie. Unseen events from the opening crawl are elaborated on like how the Chancellor is kidnapped, how Coruscant strike happens and C-3PO, voiced by the "real deal" (Anthony Daniels), revealing his new "suit." After the 3 minute chapters of "season one" the extended 12 minute chapters are better suited to the more envolved story-line(s).

A must-have for Star Wars and animation fans. Clone Wars Vol.II., like it's predecessor, is an excellent vehicle to introduce the uninitiated to "the Saga."

In the latest installment of the Star-Wars miniseries, Anakin Skywalker embraces his destiny as he crosses over to the dark side of the force. Gendy Tartovski beautifully illustrates this must-have DVD for Star-Wars fans and art enthusiasts alike. Tartovski's style is so original and brilliant, combining both worlds - the three-dimensional and the two-dimensional, but in a compelling way that makes the combination as genious as peanut butter and chocolate. The story explores every detail of Anakin's struggle to decide which road to take, as he learns the ways of the Force, and becomes more powerful during his journey. Fans of the classic battles in the Star Wars Trilogy will find much appreciation for the new ones featured this season, including such locations as the Gungan city and the hull of a star fighter. I recommend this series to all generations. Its difficult not be pleased by this interpretation of the Star Wars saga.

As the title of the review says, Clone Wars volume one ended the story of Attack of the Clones just as volume two begins the story of Revenge of the Sith and really does a good job at filling in the holes that are seen when Episode III begins.

How did Anakin get his new mechanical arm and the scar on his face? Why is Grevious coughing in Episode III? When did 3PO get his gold armor? All of these questions and more are answered in Clone Wars Volume Two and it is done very well.

The story is easy to follow and very action packed. Fast moving, I enjoyed this more than Volume One, and I loved Volume one. This is a must have for all Star Wars fans to have in their collection, if for no other reason than it explains a lot of what we see in Ep.III. The coolest part is that it ends right where Episode III begins so you get all of what took place before it. Cool

First of all, this is very, very different from the Star Wars: Clone Wars CGI show currently running on Cartoon Network. Tartakovsky's Clone Wars uses 2D animation, as opposed to the current show's 3D CGI. The episodes are actually a series of shorts (micro-episodes) intended to tell what happened right after AOTC and right before ROTS.

I like both versions of the Clone Wars. However, I think the visual imagery in the Tartakovsky version is more interesting. There are some really interesting and memorable creature designs, such as Yoda's Kybuck. I love that the show uses familiar alien species for new Jedi, such as the Ithorian Roron Corobb, Talz Foul Modama, and Wolfman Volviff Monn. Visually, they're far more memorable than any of the characters from the newer Clone Wars.

I also like that General Grievous isn't a pansy in this series. He's absolutely brutal. I found Grievous in ROTS to be more annoying than anything else, and even in the current Clone Wars find him merely tolerable. However, his introduction at the end of Volume 1 is absolutely chilling.

Unfortunately, because of time constraints, the Tartakovsky version obviously doesn't delve into character development or intricate story plots. On those aspects, I think the current Clone Wars excels. Volume 2 of the Tartakovsky series does tell the story of how Palpatine was kidnapped, but even that is more a prolonged action sequence than a rich story.

Overall, if you're a Star Wars fan, the Tartakovsky is definitely worth tracking down. I found both volumes used in great condition for around $20, so it's possible to get a deal. More than anything else, some of the new background characters and images are truly iconic.

Considering that the volume 2 was not originally conceived and it was after the first 20 short episodes were a huge success, Genndy Tartakovsky had a major challenge in following up with what he had already made with volume one.

A major change this volume presents is that we now have five episodes only but twelve minute length (which actually makes the same 60 minutes volume one had). The new series focus on the previous events to the very beginning of Episode III (Lucas asked them to do the actual crawl of the episode III), which means that if you watched the film and wondered how did Grievous kidnap Palpatine, that you can find here. Being this the case, you can imagine how limited Genndy's team was this time, they had to work now based on what Lucas wanted them to show different from volume one in which they were able to explore other aspects of the star wars universe during the clone wars period.

After the end of volume one in which we got to see a sneak peek of what Grievous would be, the character became very popular, these new episodes have him as the major villain (you will sadly see that the Grievous from Episode II is nothing but a mere shadow of a pretty cool character shown in these series). Many important events take place here: we see Grievous kill some Jedi masters, Anakin becomes a Jedi Knight, you get to see more of the brother like relation between Anakin and Obi-Wan, (my personal favorite) the trial of Anakin in a remote planet where (as Luke does later) he has a vision of what he is to become later, and of course the invasion of Coruscant by the separatist forces led by General Grievous.

Extras

A documentary called "Connecting the dots" is included which basically explains a little how the main story points for this volume came out.
