Review: Star Wars Adventures: The Clone Wars: Battle Tales

Star Wars Adventures: The Clone Wars: Battle Tales

As somewhat disputed as the Clone Wars movie was, the television show is a whole different discussion. The Dave Filoni helmed epic was more than a television show, it was a love letter to the original trilogy. It comprised of some of our favorite characters while giving us what happened between the 2nd and 3rd movies. It did so much more, and even more so than any of the nine movies that comprise the primary canon.

As it uncovered who the storm troopers were, that they were not only clones. It gave each of the characters within the show, their own personalities, all very unique. They all became even more relatable which makes the end, so heartbreaking. In Star Wars Adventures: The Clone Wars: Battle Tales, we get some new adventures that give a few new memories of these fan favorites.

We are taken to the Planet Hisseen, where a Republic squadron is taking fire from Battle Droids, and where Obi-Wan and Anakin swoop in to save them. Rex tells a story of when Anakin kept his troops safe from a goo monster on the planet Benglor. In another story, the Wolfpack is sent on a dangerous mission, to rescue a hostage from an impermeable fortress. In one tale, Padme learns of some Intel of a hidden base holding unsanctioned prisoners, leading to a prison break. In another tale, we get our version of “Dirty Dozen in space”, adding to the legend. In the last story, we get a story of Obi-Wan helping the inhabitants of Caliban free themselves of General Grievous.

Overall, Star Wars Adventures: The Clone Wars: Battle Tales is a fun collection of stories that imbues the spirit of the series. The stories by Moreci are encapsulating. The art by the creative team is awe-inspiring. Altogether, a nice visit with some very familiar characters.
