Ian Lewis, Director of Sky Movies and Sky Box Office said, “We’re delighted to bring the second series of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS to fans in the UK. The first series was enjoyed by long-standing Star Wars enthusiasts and a new generation of fans alike, so we are sure the new episodes will continue with great success; and being able to show STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS in High Definition makes the series look, and sound, even more incredible.”
“This is unlike anything we were able to do in the first season,” said Dave Filoni, supervising director of The Clone Wars; “You’re going to see a new confidence in the production. We’ve learned so much, and we can do so much more now. Everything’s bigger, slicker, faster, better. It’s pretty mind-blowing, and I think even our biggest fans will be shocked at the improvements.”
