We’ve reached The Clone Wars, but before we get to the series, Dave, Maff, Megan & Mike have watched The Clone Wars movie from 2008 – do Dave, Megan & Mike dislike it as much as they remember and what did Maff think on his first watch?

In more detail, they talk about their first impressions of the movie and how it was originally the first four episodes of the series. They then talk about the various characters including Ahsoka, “Stinky” (Rotta The Hutt), Asajj Ventress, Obi-Wan & Anakin compared to their live-action counterparts, plus the voice-acting and audio editing and they discuss Padmé & Anakin’s relationships. They then discuss clones compared to droids, which film new Star Wars fans should start with and they finish off a small tangent onto not having seen “classic” movies.

Dave, Maff & Mike have spoken about The Phantom Menace and Attack Of The Clones previously (in episodes 212 & 214), listen on any podcast app or watch here: &
