[A Long Time Ago In A Galaxy Far, Far Away...]
Events that occur approximately 22 years before Episode IV: A New Hope.

[The Clone Wars: TV Series]

Season 1 (2008-2009) | Season 2 | Season 3 | Season 4 | Season 5  |  Season 6

A galaxy divided. Striking swiftly after the Battle of Geonosis, Count Dooku’s droid army has seized control of the major hyperspace lines, separating the Republic from the majority of its clone army. With few clones available, the Jedi Generals cannot gain a foothold in the Outer Rim, as more and more planets choose to join Dooku’s Separatists. While the Jedi are occupied fighting a war, no-one is left to keep the peace. Chaos and crime spread and the innocent become victims in a lawless galaxy...

To accompany each episode* of the first season The Clone Wars TV series, StarWars.com released a short web-comic that acted as a prelude in establishing the events of that episode. Thus web-comic #1 Prelude occurs prior to the events seen in Episode #1 Ambush, web-comic #2 Shakedown precedes Episode #2 Rising Malevolence, and so on. As of April 2014 these web-comic stories are classed as Legends. In 2010 all web-comic stories were collated into a graphic novel, Tales from The Clone Wars - Volume 1. It is available from its publisher Dreams & Visions Press[External site - opens in a new window/tab].
*except episode #18 which did not an accompanying web-comic story.

All 22 TV episodes are available on DVD and high definition Blu-ray disc released through Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Episodes are listed in original broadcast order, a chronological story-telling order is included in the Saga Timeline.
