LONDON, UK 16th September, 2010: From Executive Producer George Lucas and Lucasfilm Animation, Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Season Three: Secrets Revealed returns to Sky Movies HD this autumn - promising bold new characters, thrilling adventures into uncharted worlds and unpredictable revelations that will captivate fans of all ages.
Kicking off with a double bill at 5:30pm on Saturday 23rd October on Sky Movies Premiere/HD, STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS combines the legendary storytelling of Lucasfilm with state-of-the-art animation, chronicling the adventures of much-loved Star Wars characters including Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda.
As war continues to rage throughout the galaxy, the dark side grows even stronger and the Jedi Knights are pushed to the breaking point. Loyalties are tested as new enemies emerge and heroes rise - and fall. In this transformative new look at the Star Wars Saga, the fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance and the destiny of the "Chosen One" will at long last be revealed.
"We’re going back to the roots of Star Wars," said Lucas. "Much of season three is going to explore the mythological aspects of the universe and the Force, in ways that we haven't seen before. When I first wrote the original Star Wars, it was rooted heavily in archetypal mythologies. It's always been an important part of the story, but we're taking it further and revealing more."
"The fantastic thing about THE CLONE WARS series is that it brings the Star Wars universe to a completely new generation of fans," said Director of Sky Movies and Sky Box Office Ian Lewis. "We’re thrilled by its success and delighted to be bringing the third season to Sky Movies Premiere/HD this October."
Season three of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS begins on Saturday 23rd October with a double bill and each new episode can be seen at 5:30pm on Saturdays on Sky Movies Premiere & HD sky channels 301/313HD.
