Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Critics Consensus

Mechanical animation and a less-than stellar script make The Clone Wars a pale shadow of George Lucas' once great franchise.

Audience Reviews for Star Wars: The Clone Wars

    Not nearly so bad as I had been led to believe, though even I had to question a lot of the choices that were made dialogue-wise. A lot of the lines were confronting-ly bad. Otherwise I found it inoffensive. Perhaps my lowered expectations and non-theatrical experience is the reason for this.

    The supposed pilot to what would keep the 'Star Wars' franchise going before the acquisition of Disney, is a very lackluster but, albeit quite entertaining animated feature. Although due to it's overall premise to tell the big story of the supposed 'Clone Wars' that take place between 'Attack of the Clones' and 'Revenge of the Sith' was definitely more suited to television, this feature of four episodes put together feels quite rushed, especially when trying to match the scope and quality of the films. Also Releasing this supposed 'pilot' theatrically is just another one of the many times George Lucas for any lack of better words 'overstepped the line'. The scripting is shallow and makes fans and viewers question the very motivation of the writers, nonetheless what the film lacks in plot and story it makes up for in characters, world building and action almost as spectacular as the films themselves. While getting through this may be a chore especially if there are plenty of viewers and fans curious about 'The Clone Wars', if you're a big Star Wars fan you may be able to tolerate the mixed quality of this film. I don't really want to acknowledge this as a theatrically released Star Wars film, though what came after it on TV is a hell of a lot more an improvement from what this 'pilot', as well as many written elements in the Prequel Trilogy overall turned out to be.

    As a TV Movie pilot, Star Wars: The Clone Wars would have worked brilliantly. However, as a theatrical film, it's unsurprisingly weak and short, with animation that feels even rushed at times and a plot that feels like 4 episodes crammed into a single timeframe.

    While it doesn't live up to the standard of the live action films, The Clone Wars brought out its own charm as a spin off of the main series in the same universe. Though Ashley Drane has the most annoying voice acting ever, made the film less watchable.
