Star Wars: The Clone Wars will make its premiere as a weekly TV series 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3, on Cartoon Network. The one-hour presentation will comprise two episodes that follow the events of last month’s theatrical release of the same name.
Hit the jump for brief but spoiler-filled descriptions of the launch episodes.
“AMBUSH”: Jedi Master Yoda is on a secret mission to forge a treaty with the King of the strategic system of Toydaria when his ship is ambushed by Count Dooku. Yoda and three clone troopers must face off against Count Dooku’s dreaded assassin Ventress and her massive droid army to prove the Jedi are strong enough to protect the king and his people from the forces of the war.
“RISING MALEVOLENCE”: Creating panic throughout the galaxy, a devastating Separatist mystery weapon terrorizes the clone Starfleet. Anakin and Ahsoka race to save Jedi Master Plo Koon and his clone troopers in time.
The Clone Wars will anchor Cartoon Network’s all-new night of fantasy, action and adventure that includes current hit Ben 10: Alien Force and the new series The Secret Saturdays.
