Notes: Although Chapter 11-20 of Clone Wars were produced at the same time as the first ten, they were set aside for later broadcast and were intially announced by both Lucasfilm and Cartoon Network to be the second “season.” (This despite the fact that Clone Wars was submitted for – and won – an Emmy for best animated program of one hour or more.)

The Separatists unveil a new weapon, a seismic tank capable of punching huge craters into the ground. With a single strike, the tank flattens the Jedi’s troops – and separates him from his lightsaber.

Alone, the two Jedi must defend the crystals that power their weapons.

Notes: This chapter was slightly longer than Volume 1’s typical three-minute episodes, and featured the first look at the character of General Grievous.

Chapter 21

Star Wars: Clone WarsClone troopers lead a rescue mission to Hypori, where only Ki-Adi-Mundi still stands against General Grievous. The reinforcements’ heavy firepower turns the tide of the battle, but despite Ki’s urgings, they are unable to pursue Grievous – the wounded need medical care too badly. Yoda has a vision of Qui-Gon Jinn and a boy Anakin preparing to face a psychological trial. Anakin and Padme continue to hide their marriage, much to Anakin’s frustration. Months later, the war continues, and the Council faces a shortage of Knights to lead the battles. Obi-Wan suggests that Anakin be knighted despite not having faced the formal Jedi trials, arguing that the events of the war have tested him enough. Mace Windu has reservations, but eventually Obi-Wan’s suggestion is accepted. Anakin Skywalker becomes a Jedi Knight.

Star Wars: Clone WarsThe newly-knighted Anakin and Obi-Wan lead the Republic to several victories, but the Clone Wars are still locked in stalemate. Mace and Palpatine send the pair to Nelvaan, a world that may hide Grievous’s base. Once they arrive at the frozen world, their efforts to track Grievous lead them into the path of a stampeding creature. Anakin defeats the creature, but that may not make the planet’s natives happy.

Star Wars: Clone WarsHaving stretched out the Republic’s forces along the Outer Rim, Grievous launces a direct assault against Coruscant that includes a space and ground attack. Saesee Tiin takes charge of the Republic fleet while Mace and Yoda assist the troopers planetside. On Nelvaan, Obi-wan learns that most of the tribe’s male warriors have disappeared. The beast that Anakin killed was the quarry in a rite of passage for the tribe’s new would-be champion. When Obi-Wan realizes that their prophecies refer to a “ghost hand,” he suggests that Anakin attempt to find those responsible for the disappearance – a ritual that may also serve as the very last of Anakin’s Jedi trials, the test of his own psyche.

Star Wars: Clone WarsOn Coruscant, the battle rages as the Jedi urge Chancellor Palpatine to retreat to his bunker. The Chancellor seems unconcerned – until General Grievous breaks into his office. On Nelvaan, Anakin finds a series of cave paintings that recount the legend of the “ghost hand” – a warrior who, in the fight against a dark power, was eventually consumed by that power. The paintings inspire a vision that suggests Anakin’s own future. Unnerved, the young Jedi continues his search – and finds members of the Techno-Guild conducting experiments to mutate and mechanize the Nelvaanian warriors.

Notes: The events of Clone Wars: Volume II are meant to lead directly into Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Anakin’s knighting, the beginning of the Battle of Coruscant and Palpatine’s kidnapping are also recounted in the prose novel “Labyrinth Of Evil.” Those attempting to reconcile these two accounts are advised to stock up on the headache medication of their choice.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Star Wars: The Clone WarsAs the Clone Wars continue, the Republic faces difficulties due to the control the criminal Hutt clans exert over the Outer Rim trade routes. But the kidnapping of crime lord Jabba the Hutt’s son Rotta opens the door for the Jedi and Supreme Chancellor Palpatine to make a deal with the gangster. Despite the misgivings of Jedi Master Mace Windu, they agree that in return for Jabba’s help with the trade routes, the Jedi will send two of their best to rescue the young Huttlet. But the Jedi Knights best suited to the task, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, are bogged down on the planet of Christophsis, with their differing approaches in clear view. Obi-Wan, in particular, is eager for a new Padawan now that Anakin has been elevated to full Knight status. But it is the reluctant Anakin who finds himself with an apprentice in the form of young Jedi-in-training Ahsoka Tano, sent to him by Yoda. While General Skywalker and Ahsoka embark on a mission to sabotage the Separatist’s defenses, Obi-Wan confronts their leader, General Loathsom. Both gambits prove successful and the Republic regains control of the planet.

But in wartime things seldom stay calm and the three are soon off on their missions in relation to Rotta’s kidnapping. Anakin and Ahsoka are sent to the planet of Teth to retrieve the child, while Obi-Wan negotiates with Jabba. The entire affair proves to be a plot by Count Dooku to frame the Jedi and put them in contention with the Hutts. Dooku sends his disciple, Asajj Ventress, to carry out the details of the plan. But following a massive battle, Anakin and Ahsoka (with R2-D2 in tow) rescue Rotta and escape the planet, heading to Tatooine in a battered old freighter so they can reunite Jabba and his son.

Arriving on the planet, they soon split up. Anakin squares off against Count Dooku, leaving Ahsoka to stave off Magna Guards alone. Meanwhile on Coruscant, Anakin’s secret wife, Senator Padme Amidala, attempts to contact Jabba’s uncle, Ziro the Hutt, to ask for his aid in the conflict. She learns that Ziro is in league with Count Dooku and is trying to take over the Hutt clans. Caught eavesdropping, she is imprisoned by Ziro. On Tatooine, Anakin is able to outmaneuver Dooku and the Huttlet is returned to his father, who nonetheless orders the deaths of Anakin and Ahsoka. Padme is rescued by the timely intervention of C-3PO and a squad of Clone Troopers, allowing her to transmit the evidence of Ziro’s treachery to Jabba, saving the two Jedi and foiling the Sith’s plans.

Ambush

Star Wars: The Clone WarsIn an effort to make a deal to build a Republic base on the planet of Toydaria, Yoda plans to meet with its leader, King Katuunko on the isolated planet of Rugosa. But the Jedi Master and his clone troopers are ambushed on the way to the meeting by Asajj Ventress and her droids, crash landing far from the meeting place. Trying to win favor with Katuunko on behalf of Count Dooku, Ventress suggests a contest to show the relative worth of the Separatists droids versus the Republic. If her superior numbers can succeed in capturing Yoda, Toydaria will side with the Separatists. Yoda agrees to the challenge and sets out for the meeting with only three clone troopers to aid him.

Rising Malevolence

Star Wars: The Clone WarsJedi Master Plo Koon is tracking a mysterious Separatist warship through the Abregado system. He contacts Anakin Skywalker and his padawan, Ahsoka Tano, in hopes of acquiring backup. But Anakin has strict orders and cannot join him. When communications are cut off, Master Koon and his clone troops find themselves under attack by a massively powerful ion cannon that wipes out all power and destroys all three of Koon’s ships. Master Koon and his men flee in escape pods, but soon find themselves hunted down, as a droid task force cheerily steers its pod hunter from pod to pod, cracking them open and dumping the inhabitants into open space. Urged on by his padawan’s close relationship with Master Koon, Anakin decides to defy his orders and takes his ship, the Twilight, to Abregado in search of Master Koon. But time is running out both for the lost Jedi and his men and for Anakin, whose actions bring down the disapproval of both the Jedi Council and Chancellor Palpatine, all of whom want him to return. Anakin must weigh the importance of obedience to orders with obedience to his instincts.

Star Wars: The Clone WarsWith the Malevolence wreaking havoc in the galaxy, Anakin Skywalker comes up with a bold plan to take out the bridge and the ship’s commander, General Grievous, in one fell swoop. But before he can put this plan into action, the Malevolence is seen heading for the Kaliida Shoals Medical Center, intent on destroying the Republic’s only safe haven for wounded clones. Anakin decides to take his flight group, the Shadow Squadron, through the Kaliida Nebula in order to cut off the Malevolence before it can attack while Obi-Wan’s battleships take the long way ’round. But Anakin has underestimated the dangers of his shortcut and the consequences may leave his squadron unable to complete his plan.
