If you missed the premiere of the Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars last Friday, don’t worry, you can purchase each and every episode at the iTunes Store.  Debuting on the popular music, video, and application service the day after new episodes air, fans can download individual episodes for $1.99, or get a season pass for $39.99 for all 22 half-hour episodes.

Starting with “Rising Malevolence,” the series’ second episode, StarWars.com will offer a regular podcast – one that combines news and information with the creativity of Lucasfilm. It will be available both at StarWars.com and at iTunes.  At both locations, the podcast will be free for fans who want to learn more about the secrets of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS.

Moreover, StarWars.com will offer an exclusive, entirely new online graphic novel, with new insights into the CLONE WARS galaxy.  Written by Star Wars expert Pablo Hidalgo, its weekly installments will feature four different artists, each of whom illustrates a new “chapter.”  Each of the 23 “chapters” will serve as an introduction to that week’s episode of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS.

If you don’t want to pay for content that is essentially free to begin with, both Cartoon Network and StarWars.com will stream episodes one week after the first run.  The first episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars begins streaming on Friday October 10, 2008.

    if you want my opinion (you probably don’t but i don’t care) the movie sucked and the show suck too. this is not star wars, this is a kid show. it could be watchable if it didn’t have the name star wars on it, but it does. and everything you thought you knew about the mythology of the universe is gone like my money every wednesday.

    I watched it with my 5-year-old and thought it was alright.

    this is not star wars, this is a kid show.

    And, for the record, they’re all a kid show. Always have been.

    ”And, for the record, they’re all a kid show. Always have been”

    episode 4 and 5, not so much IMO. episode 6, it was taking a turn for it all right, but it was still a great movie for adult where they tried to get to the kids.

    episode 1-2-3 are aimed at kids, and only kids. clone wars is aimed at younger kids.

    and like i said, nothing fits in the mythology.

    sorry to be so angry about this, but it pisses me off. how they screwed us like that just to sell toys and video games.

    I’m pretty sure that George Lucas himself has said that Star Wars is, and has always been, for kids. I think he’s sort of the authority.

    Beyond that, just look at the basics of it: The story is about a kid who’s told he’s destined to grow up to be a Knight and whose first task is to go and save a princess. That’s as cookie-cutter ‘fairy tale’ kid-stuff as it gets.

    sure, strangling people because they look at you the wrong way. chopping limbs. electrocute people. that’s for kids, of course. another time, another mentality i guess. at least, everybody could find something, now, it’s only for kids, and MAYBE adults will find it watchable.

    since episode 1-2-3 (the movies) i always said that if the name STAR WARS was not attached to those movies, nobody would’ve liked it or even watch it. same thing apply here with this series. remove the name of the franchise and the name of the characters and we would not talk about it as much.

    remember the animated series by genndy tartakovsky? now, that was a fun series, but it was just that, fun. it was not star wars, not for me, but it was a lot of fun and i still watch it to this day. now it’s boring, story is boring,nothing happen, and the little girl even have pony tails. put her in a school girl outfit while you’re at it.

    anyway, this is a fine series, but this is not star wars by any means.
