STAR WARS: CLONE WARS EPISODES
Cartoon Network has released the following guide for the new group of Star Wars: Clone Wars episodes:
Anakin continues his pursuit of Dark Jedi Asajj Ventress, disobeying Obi-Wan's strenuous orders not to do so. During an intense dogfight, he tracks her through hyperspace to Yavin 4. Obi-Wan Kenobi, who is acting as a General of the Army of the Republic, dispatches a platoon of ARC Troopers to support his Padawan.
Jedi Mace Windu leads his troops in an intense battle on the desert planet of Dantooine. The Droid Army counters the offensive by the Army of the Republic with an enormous vessel that releases a seismic charge, devastating the Clone troops. Mace Windu finds himself alone and surrounded by the massive Droid Army -- without his lightsaber.
Mace Windu continues to battle the Clone Army singlehandedly on Dantooine. Facing an overpowering enemy assault, the unarmed Jedi Master must rely on the Force as he seeks to thwart the Droid Army.
On the icy planet of Ilum, chameleon-like Droids are planting explosives in the sacred Jedi Ice Caverns, the source of the crystals that power every Jedi's lightsaber. Jedi Luminara Unduli and Barris Offee are on Ilum and engage in a ferocious battle but are trapped after an explosion. Yoda, aboard Padme's ship, senses these two Jedi are in trouble and decides he must help rescue them.
Padme's head of security, Captain Typho, believes that going to Ilum is too dangerous. He tries to convince Yoda not to go, but the ancient Jedi Master is committed to rescuing Luminara Unduli and Barris Offee. Once the ship lands on Ilum, Yoda sets out in the snow, alone. To enter the sacred cave, he must first defeat a battalion of Droids.
Padme is worried about Yoda, so she leaves the ship and heads out into frigid Ilum with C-3PO and R2-D2 to find him. As they approach the cave, they tangle with Droid soldiers. Inside the cave, Yoda tries to free the trapped Jedi. The entire crew then must battle Droid forces as they return to Padmešs ship.
Back on Yavin 4, Anakin has cornered his would-be assassin, Asajj Ventress. Now the battle between these two highly skilled warriors truly begins.
Anakin and Asajj continue their hand-to-hand duel on Yavin 4. Ventress, an expert fighter who battles using two lightsabers at the same time, proves to be a formidable foe for the young Jedi.
The battle between Asajj and Anakin becomes more intense. Anakin, filled with rage, attacks his foe, the Dark Jedi and ally of Count Dooku, mercilessly. Still, she is a crafty fighter with a few tricks of her own.
Obi-Wan Kenobi celebrates a successful campaign on Muunilinst, and the Army of the Republic has taken many prisoners. When Anakin returns from Yavin 4, the Jedi Master upbraids his charge for disobeying a direct order. Still, Obi-Wan is impressed with Anakin's bravery. Meanwhile, on a distant planet, a band of Jedi Knights faces a mysterious and powerful enemy.
