Tonight’s the night for Star Wars fans — the Saga makes the leap to episodic television. The Clone Wars premieres at 9 p.m. on Cartoon Network, with two half-hour episodes back-to-back.

Cartoon Network has provided a list of stories that will be explored in the first season:

  • Jedi Master Plo Koon — a character barely glimpsed in the feature films — rises to prominence as he discovers a mysterious threat that could cause immense destruction — and the evil secret behind it.
  • Ambushed by Ventress and her droid army, Jedi Master Yoda teaches his clone companions that the Force touches all living things and that hope is never lost.
  • On a distant planetary outpost, a squadron of rookie clone troopers find themselves struggling to survive and also learn the meaning of sacrifice.
  • The Bothan home planet of Bothawui, never before seen on screen, comes to the forefront as a heroic ally falls prey to the sinister plot of General Grievous, and his friends must fight to rescue him.
  • Senator Padmé Amidala faces a life-threatening showdown with her nemesis, Separatist Viceroy Nute Gunray, the victim of ultimate deception by the leader of a desperate planet.

  • Just an update – I don’t want to come off as gushing, but this show REALLY rocks the television! The theatrical movie from August would have been received much better on the smaller screen. Yoda was fun and wondrous again, not at all the politician we see in the prequels. Plo Koon’s voice was a little too Vader-y for my liking, but the character is as impressive as he is imposing.
