After enjoying last summer's theatrical release of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, I was happy to see it appear on the small screen on a weekly basis. One fact I wasn't aware of until I did some additional background work was that the theatrical release came about as the result of George Lucas "viewing some of the completed footage of the early episodes on a big screen." (Wikipedia)

Season 1:

    Episode 1: Ambush
    Episode 2: Rising Malevolence
    Episode 3: Shadow of Malevolence
    Episode 4: Destroy Malevolence

Released on March 24, 2009 as a Region 1 DVD and April 13, 2009 as a Region 2 DVD, Star Wars: The Clone Wars - A Galaxy Divided is due out sometime later in 2009 as a Region 4 DVD.

Upcoming DVDs (Wikipedia):

Ambush is a standalone episode where Master Yoda and a squad of clone troopers have to fend off Asajj Ventress, a Dark Jedi, and Count Dooku's apprentice as they try to negotiate a treaty with King Katuunko of the Toydarians.

Rising Malevolence, Shadow of Malevolence, and Destroy Malevolence are the three parts of a story dealing with the Malevolence, General Grievous' deadly warship, capable of disabling and destroying any Federation cruiser.

The best part of owning a copy of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars - A Galaxy Divided DVD is having a pristine copy without the artifacts that sometimes show up in a digital TV signal.

The most disappointing things about the Star Wars: The Clone Wars - A Galaxy Divided DVD are that only four episodes are included and that there are no bonus features.

In the final analysis, this DVD is for the Star Wars compleatist who wants the episodes as soon as they become available. Personally, I can hardly wait for the complete first season to come out.
