CELEBRATING TEN YEARS OF THE 'CLONE WARS' MICRO-SERIES - SEASON TWO
Now disappointingly ignored from the official STAR WARS canon timeline by the LUCASFILM Story Group (despite its being sanctioned by George Lucas, who specifically asked for it to reflect the main title crawl of the then upcoming EPISODE III), the second season of the 2-D animated CLONE WARS micro-series, award-winningly brought to life by Genndy Tartakovsky via Cartoon Network, was just as ambitious and action-packed as its earlier, short-bits 2003 run, bringing further new elements of excitement and cool-ness to the STAR WARS universe, and genuinely filling in the story/character gaps leading to the final Prequel movie's stunning opening space battle above Coruscant. Genuine and striking highlights would be the resolution to the previous season's cliffhanger introducing the psychotic General Grievous, and the Clone Arc Troopers exhilirating rescue of the near dead Jedi fighting it, led by Ki-Adi Mundi, plus the stunning Separatist invasion of the Republic's central world, as Yoda, once more on his trusty Kybuck steed, and a purple lightsaber-wielding Mace Windu lead the epic defence. All this, whilst Shaak Ti and friends try to protect their Supreme Chancellor Palpatine from abduction by Grievous and his magna-guards, during a sprawling, expansive action sequence that takes them above, across and below the city streets.
