Incomplete “Clone Wars” series episodes now available online for free

When the acquisition of Lucasarts and in extension the Star Wars Franchise, was completed by Disney one of the immediate effects of the deal was the cancellation of the sixth season of the Clone Wars animated series.

The Clone Wars and David Tennant Win an Emmy

The Clone Wars brought home an award at the Daytime Emmy’s and David Tennant gets recognized for his hard work as the voice of Huyang, the droid that mentors young Jedis in how to build their own lightsabers. We’re fans and have written about the series here in the past.

From the moment Bush Jr dropped his first bombs, I was at the very…

Maybe everyone’s just gotten Star Wars fever right now, making it good timing for anyone with a game on the subject. Worth Playing says: “Focused on creating a fun and safe online environment for kids and families, Clone Wars Adventures offers exciting minigames, dynamic…
