May the force Fourth be with you! Happy Star Wars Day!

So for this force fourth, I thought that I would share the original Clone wars animated series in celebration.

Before the animated movie Star Wars: The Clone Wars and long before the television series of the same name, Cartoon Network produced 25 “micro” episodes to fill in the three-year gap between the prequel films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.

The series begins a few months after the events of Attack of the Clones, which means the war has only begun.

Back when it originally aired, Star Wars: Clone Wars introduced more Jedi masters and knights, who were previously only glimpsed in the prequel films. It also introduced more antagonists to me – Asajj Ventress and General Grievous.

Ventress also appeared in the introductory film of the same name. Greivous also appeared as a major antagonist in the prequel film Revenge of the Sith.

Star Wars: Clone Wars was the first animated series to introduce the events of the Clone wars, but it is rarely mentioned since the popular and more in-depth Star Wars: The Clone Wars aired years later.

I’m a fan of both Clone wars animated series – being a pretty big Star Wars nerd myself! But I will admit that Star Wars: Clone Wars holds a special place in my heart – it actually aired its episodes between the release dates of the prequel films.

But the animation style really worked for me – even though I love the look of the 3D animation of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

I really enjoyed it because it was such an event when it actually aired on Cartoon Network – big monthly gaps between the seasons to stretch the very short miniseries to make it last til the release date of Revenge of the Sith.

I loved Star Wars: Clone Wars even though portions of the storyline were not as interesting as its same time period successor’s episodes. Regardless, I am still going to fangirl all over this post with some more screenshots from the first animated series about the Clone wars.
