For those of you who missed out on the first season, Cartoon Network has been playing repeats to bring you up to speed in time for the upcoming premier of year two. A thrilling expansion of the prequels, Clone Wars is marred only by a rather lackluster feature film that may have turned off potential audiences from this exciting cartoon series. I have reviewed key episodes in the past noting how the program grew from episode to episode in both artistic ability and sophistication on writing (aside from the Jar Jar episode… what was up with that?).
Last season’s finale gave use the terrifying bounty hunter Cad Bane who raised the bar for danger in the Star Wars Universe. From the tagline of the second season, it looks like things are going to get interesting.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Rise of the Bounty Hunters premieres Friday, October 2, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT)
Coming off of the record-setting first season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Cartoon Network announced today it will premiere a full slate of 22 all-new episodes for season two of the critically acclaimed and top-rated CG-animated series from creator George Lucas and Lucasfilm Animation. The special one-hour season two premiere event of Star Wars: The Clone Wars airs Friday, October 2, at 8 p.m. (et/pt).
Star Wars: The Clone Wars has emerged as one of the preeminent animated series on television, combining the expansive scope of the Star Wars saga with exciting weekly adventures. During its first season, premiere episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network (Fridays at 9 p.m.) ranked #1 on all TV with boys 6-11. Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a thrilling, weekly 30-minute “mini-movie” created by the talented artists at Lucasfilm Animation.
Fierce battles, expanded storylines and ground-breaking animation raise the stakes in Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Rise of the Bounty Hunters. The lives of the Jedi become more complex as secret and forbidden relationships are revealed and a new breed of villain enters to take advantage of the wartime turmoil. Season two introduces these lawless rogues into the fray along with a host of new characters, locations and creatures. Set against the spectacular backdrop of the Star Wars universe, The Clone Wars is bigger, bolder and more intense than ever before.
