When Star Wars: The Clone Wars - A Galaxy Divided (TV Series Season 1, Vol. 1) hit the market on March 24, 2009, it consisted of the first four episodes of the series. Fine as an appetizer, it gave hints of the main course to come. With the release of Star Wars The Clone Wars: The Complete Season One (TV Series) [Blu-ray] on November 3, 2009, the main course has finally arrived.

From official release/information:

Description:
The "Clone Wars" goes back to the original Star Wars film when Obi-Wan Kenobi tells Luke Skywalker that he was once a Jedi knight the same as your father and that they fought together in the Clone Wars. Since that moment fans have been obsessed with what the Clone Wars were. This new TV series takes place immediately after the events of Star Wars - Episode II: Attack of the Clones. The series follows Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker and introduces us to some new characters such as Ahsoka Tano, a teenage girl who is Anakin Skywalker's apprentice, as well as other characters we met previously.
