STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS (2008 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a good, multi-layered storyline film that uses ‘in the meantime’, ‘simultaneously’, ‘in the interim’, ‘back at the ranch’, and ‘in the meanwhile’ transitioning to great advantage in order to create a solid, good, interesting storyline. The movie is from the Cartoon Network TV series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, provides entertaining acting, a fair to good portrayal of storyline, great vocal talent, and finishes with the desired, ‘good feeling’ ending. It’s always good to see characters fighting for the greater cause and that, as in the original Star Wars franchise, is, indeed, the case here. The film is worth one watch and specifically will entertain the Star Wars’ story-hungry fan.

Storyline

Anakin Skywalker (voice of Matt Lanter) is sent on a mission to save Jabba the Huts’ (voice of Kevin Michael Richardson) son (voice of David Acord), but on the way Count Dooku (voice of Christopher Lee) is scheming a plan to turn Jabba the Hut against Anakin. The apprentice Ahsoka Tano (voice of Ashley Eckstein) joins Anakin in the retrieval of Jabba the Hut’s son, Rotta.
