Podcast Stardust #152: Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars – Chapters 1 – 4

by Podcast Stardust

We return to 2003 and the original telling of the Clone Wars with Gendy Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars from Cartoon Network. Join us for chapters 1 through 4.

The Clone Wars created by Dave Filoni and George Lucas was not the first attempt by Lucasfilm to tell the story of the Clone Wars on screen. In 2003, Lucas and Gendy Tartakovsky started a micro-series that told the story of the war in three to four minute episodes. This series bridged Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith and lead directly into the conclusion of the prequel trilogy. Although it is now considered Legends material, it captured the imagination of Star Wars fans everywhere. This week, we start a review of the series beginning with chapters one through four.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • The format of Clone Wars,
  • The art style of the microseries and its benefits,
  • The introduction segment,
  • The music of Clone Wars,
  • The voice cast of the series including familiar names,
  • How the storytelling differs from The Clone Wars, and
  • The story of the first four chapters of the series.
