DK's Star Wars: The Clone Wars readers will follow in the footsteps of DK's other visual non-fiction Star Wars readers like What is a Wookiee? and The Story of Darth Vader. Beware Jabba the Hutt educates readers on why Jabba the Hutt is dangerous and just how conniving he can be.
Since the first time we heard Luke Skywalker ask Obi-Wan Kenobi "You fought in the Clone Wars!?" in Episode IV: A New Hope, fans the world over have been wondering exactly what the Clone Wars were and what clones in combat would look like. On August 15th, 2008, with the theatrical release of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, much will be explained. The Clone Wars take place between Episode II: Attack of the Clonesand Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Lucasfilm is now bringing the wars to life in an all-new CGI animated series.
The theatrical release will launch this groundbreaking computer-generated animated series, which will then debut on Cartoon Network and TNT in the fall. New characters like female Padawan Ahsoka Tano join old favorites Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, Count Dooku, General Grievous, and others as the Jedi cross lightsabers with the dark side yet again.
