|The Clone Wars|
Star Wars: Clone Wars is an animated television series that chronicles the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Produced by Cartoon Network Studios, the series originally aired from 2003 to 2005. It was intended to serve as a bridge between the films Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith—which begin and end the war respectively. The series consists of twenty-five chapters; Seasons 1 and 2 (Volume I) are made up of three-minute instalments, while Season 3 (Volume II) is made up of twelve-to-fifteen minute instalments. The success of Star Wars: Clone Wars led to a second Clone Wars series—the similarly titled Star Wars: The Clone Wars—which was produced by Lucasfilm Animation and ran from 2008 to 2014.
