Dec 6: Clone Wars Volume 2
HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Sept. 12, 2005 -- Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi continue their action-filled quest to bring peace to a galaxy consumed by conflict when the Emmy Award-winning STAR WARS: CLONE WARS Volume Two debuts on DVD Dec. 6 from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Fox Home Entertainment.
The non-stop action of STAR WARS: CLONE WARS Volume Two leads directly into the opening moments of the year's No. 1 box-office hit, Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, revealing secrets and bringing new perspectives to the intense space battle that sets the movie in motion.
As the evil General Grievous gains power among the nefarious Separatist faction, the Jedi Knights find themselves faced with a growing threat and an expansion of the calamitous Clone Wars. Against this epic backdrop, Star Wars fans will discover fascinating answers to long-held questions: Exactly who, or what, is Grievous, and how did he develop his incessant cough? How does Anakin transform from a promising young Padawan learner to full Knighthood as a Jedi?
Most importantly for the shocking developments that form the climax of Revenge of the Sith, how do Anakin and Obi-Wan develop a bond as close as brothers -- one that will be shattered forever when they meet in their fateful lightsaber duel on Mustafar?
Originally seen on Cartoon Network, STAR WARS: CLONE WARS Volume Two not only gives audiences near-continuous action, it completes the circle of the Star Wars saga by exploring the event-filled Clone Wars in stunning detail. STAR WARS: CLONE WARS Volume Two ultimately leads to an all-out assault by Grievous on the galactic capital, Coruscant, and the kidnapping of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine... who Anakin and Obi-Wan are sent to rescue during the first scenes of Revenge of the Sith.
The DVD release of STAR WARS: CLONE WARS Volume Two includes a brand-new featurette, "Connecting the Dots," that takes audiences inside the creative process that series creator Genndy Tartakovsky and his team used to link the stories of Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith. An audio commentary by Tartakovsky and his band of artists is also included on the DVD, bringing even greater insight into the process of creating the Emmy-winning animated adventures.
There are also two full galleries of concept art, storyboards and sketches, plus trailers for the upcoming LucasArts video games Star Wars Battlefront II and Star Wars Empire at War, as well as a trailer for LEGO's Revenge of the Brick and the original theatrical trailer for Revenge of the Sith. The DVD also features an Xbox-playable demo offering two entire levels from Star Wars Battlefront II, which debuts from LucasArts on Nov. 1.
