“Star Wars” fans in 2008 were desperate for some new adventures with “Star Wars: Episode III - revenge of the Sith” having come and gone in 2005.

To fill the void, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” a feature film directed by Dave Filoni was released. It would end up being an introduction to an animated Cartoon Network series of the same name that launched in October.

The Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems battle for Jabba the Hutt’s permission to use his trade routes.
