Peace in the galaxy: ‘Clone Wars’ holiday truce, online marathon

Television

Star Wars The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network

Even Jedi, clone troopers and droids get time off for the holidays.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is on hiatus until Jan. 2, but until then you can catch up on all 10 existing episodes at the official Star Wars Web site and at CartoonNetwork.com.

Each episode features video commentary by supervising director Dave Filoni, a Web comic and a detailed episode guide containing concept art and additional insights into the series. The online marathon ends on Jan. 5.

Cartoon Network will also be encoring the episodes on something called “television”:

  • Monday, Dec. 22 — 11 a.m. (one-hour block), 6 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Dec. 23 — 10:30 a.m., 3 p.m. (one-hour block)
  • Thursday, Dec. 25 — 5:30 p.m.
  • Friday, Dec. 26 — 9 a.m., 7 p.m. (one-hour block), 10 p.m.

  • Sunday, Dec. 28 — 10 p.m.
  • Monday, Dec. 29 — 11 a.m. (one-hour block), 6 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Dec. 30 — 10:30 a.m., 3 p.m. (one-hour block)
  • Wednesday, Dec. 31 — 10 a.m. (one-hour block), 4 p.m.

Hostilities resume Jan. 2, when the first new Clone Wars episode of 2009, “Dooku Captured,” will debut at 10 p.m. on Cartoon Network.
