MUMBAI: George Lucas’ Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated television series will premiere on WB on 3 July at 6 pm.

With new characters and worlds, Star Wars: The Clone Wars series recreates all the thrill of the epic cult science fiction saga through the medium of animation. Transporting viewers to the gripping Star Wars galaxy and set between Star Wars: Episode II and III, Star Wars: The Clone Wars reveals the untold stories within the epic battle. Each week, a new mini-movie, in the galaxy-changing Clone Wars takes center stage.

Turner International India vice president and deputy general manager, entertainment networks (South Asia) Monica Tata said, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars showcases an entirely new look and feel to the galaxy far, far away, combining the expansive scope of the Star Wars saga with state-of-the-art computer-generated animation. The series is a perfect addition to WB’s already incredible line up of Hollywood blockbusters, and is sure to inspire some action-packed evenings of entertainment for new and existing Star Wars fans alike.”

“The Clone Wars is really a continuation of the feature films, and I wanted it to have the same look, feel and depth of the movies. I think we’ve succeeded in making it visually very different than anything else on TV. We’ve put a lot of emphasis on the story and character, because we wanted to make a series that everyone could enjoy. Young people can enjoy the characters, the action and the humor; older kids will like the depth of the story and the quality of the animation. For parents and adults, and for people who have been Star Wars fans for a long time, the series is exciting because it’s one-of-a-kind – a dramatic, action-oriented animated series, done in an interesting style,” added Lucas.
