About the book

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 Clones and 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.

Our Thoughts

My kids are completely nuts about Star Wars clone Wars.  They have seen the first two seasons of television shows and are waiting patiently that season three comes out in DVD (you see we don’t have cable…).

They eat, drink, dream and live to play with their Star Wars Lego.   They grab Star Wars books anytime they want.   They pretend play as though they are in Star Wars. 

I guess we have created Star Wars monsters…   Seriously though I am pleased to see them passionate about something that started back in the 70s.   Star Wars was part of our growing up my husband and I.  It is in the life of my kids now and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it in the life of my grand-kids one of these days.

The Star Wars The Clone Wars The Visual Guide is the guide to have to learn more about the various characters, ships, droids,  and more from the first two seasons of the series.   Yes – this doesn’t cover the third season… which means that eventually you can expect and updated version of the visual guide.  

Still because my kids have to wait to watch the third season, this book is handy because they can read it (or get someone read it to them) to learn more about their beloved characters as well as the not so beloved ones.

I think my favourite droid is definitively R2-D2.   In this book, you will get two pages dedicated on him.  It is the kind of droid I would like to have with me – courageous, loyal, spirited, quirky… and he can come in handy every once in a while.   My second favourite droid is C3-PO.   I knew that C3-PO was fluent in many languages but this book indicates that he can communicate in six millions ways.   I’m speechless (which is not something C3-PO would be able to do I think!).  

This book is a good review of the first two seasons of the television series.  Perfect for kids who wants to go through it and review what happened before they watch the third season when it comes out in DVD.

If you have a child who is passionate about Star Wars The Clone Wars, consider getting The Visual Guide.
