While the concept of Lucasfilm Animation has been around since the Star Wars Holiday Special and the creation of shows like Droids and Ewoks, this film kicked off animated Star Wars as we know it.
Unlike most television series, The Clone Wars movie did something special. It brought back multiple Prequel Trilogy actors to reprise their roles in the film.
While the movie is Ahsoka’s introduction, The Clone Wars is very much a Skywalker film, with Anakin being the other main character.
James Arnold Taylor answers the call to step into the part of Obi-Wan Kenobi after Ewan McGregor defined the role in the Prequel Trilogy.
Whoever thought that this snippy little flawed teenager making nicknames for her master and R2-D2 would become one of the franchise’s most beloved characters?
Commander Cody was the face of the clones in the Prequel Trilogy. While he’s more of a supporting character in the movie and throughout the show, Cody is still a significant figure whenever he’s here.
Captain Rex is the Paragon clone. The Clone Wars series has three main characters: Ahsoka, Anakin, and Rex, the usual point-of-view character for all the clones.
Yoda’s not in the movie much, but when he is, it’s to toot on the nostalgia horn. He’s very much a younger version of who he is in the Original Trilogy but with a dash of idealism.
