Genndy Tartakovsky, the creator of Star Wars: Clone Wars, recently took the time to explain why he feels the 2D series is still popular among Star Wars fans. “I like to think it [had a lasting influence], and I believe we were one of the first things George [Lucas] put out for someone else to do, right?” “Aside from certain novels and comics and whatnot, there really wasn’t much done in the cinema medium,” Tartakovsky explained in an exclusive interview with CBR. “So we did a terrific job,” he went on to say. “Wait, what was it, ten years ago? Almost 20? I believe it was in 2003 or 2004, so we’re approaching the 20th anniversary of the event. People still speak about it, it still resonates, and they just released a new toy line based on it—fantastic.


That’s It’s not just us, obviously; everyone still adores the universe’s characters. “However, what we accomplished still resonates and holds up, which is fantastic.” Tartakovsky went on to remark that his Clone Wars animation made him “very pleased.” “I believe maybe taking a lot of credit for everything did free things up, the way George felt about everything, and that maybe other people’s approach to his wonderful ideas and property would be alright,” he concluded. Not to be confused with the CG-animated, Dave Filoni-directed Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which debuted on Cartoon Network in 2008, Tartakovsky’s Star Wars: Clone Wars first aired on the network in late 2003, roughly a year and a half after the theatrical release of Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones. Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars was the first on-screen portrayal of the namesake war, which was initially mentioned in 1977’s Star Wars film.


The Emmy-winning miniseries aired a total of 25 episodes spread across three seasons, which were published in two volumes. Star Wars: Clone Wars first aired on Cartoon Network on March 25, 2005, about two months before the theatrical release of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. Tartakovsky’s cartoon even featured the first appearances of certain major Episode III characters, like General Grievous and Commander Cody.


Clone Wars by Andrei Tartakovsky was included in the Disney+ streaming service earlier this year.
