Lucasfilm Animation's revolutionary animated series STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, which has enjoyed a spectacular run on Cartoon Network, is coming to TNT for an encore run this February.

The first-ever animated series from Lucasfilm Animation, STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS chronicles the adventures of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Ahsoka Tano and other favorite STAR WARS characters as they struggle against the dark side during the divisive, action-packed Clone Wars. Dwindling numbers of Jedi fight to maintain freedom and restore peace to the galaxy, using their army of genetically engineered clones against the seemingly never-ending droid army. Across hundreds of planets, the Jedi and the evil Separatists fight for the future of the galaxy. The terrible conflict grows wider as our heroes are swept up in the turmoil of war, while the evil Count Dooku, his assassin Asajj Ventress, their master Darth Sidious, the mechanical General Grievous and a rogue's gallery of never-before-seen villains scheme to defeat them.

Lucasfilm Animation began pre-production on STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS in 2005, shortly after the release of Star Wars: Episode III � Revenge of the Sith. For three years, teams of animators, artists and storytellers in northern California and at production facilities in Singapore and Taipei worked together to create one of the most unique animated television series in history. Blending tremendous artistic talent with all-new animation technology, Lucasfilm Animation has produced 22 episodes for the series' first season, which premiered to record ratings on TNT's sister network, Cartoon Network, in October 2008.

Dave Filoni serves as supervising director of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, with Catherine Winder as producer and George Lucas as executive producer. The series features the vocal talents of Matt Lanter as Anakin Skywalker, Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano, James Arnold Taylor as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Tom Kane as Yoda, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex and Clones, Ian Abercrombie as Chancellor Palpatine, Matthew Wood as General Grievous, Nika Futterman as Asajj Ventress, Corey Burton as Count Dooku, Matthew Wood as Battle Droids and Anthony Daniels as C-3PO.
