Ive been looking into the different movies and tv series of star wars that are available and im getting confused.
If im correct, there are two tv series, one called 'clone wars' and another called 'the clone wars'. One of them starts with a movie though i think (or was it cut into episodes for the dvd release? i dont know). One is cartoon and another is CGI...im probably wrong...
Anyway, if someone can help, id really appreciate it.
Id like to know the order of every movie/video/tv series of star wars that has been released. Im interested in watching everything. I looked at the websites timeline of media section but it was way too much information. Im looking only for media that has been a film/video/tv series.
So please let me know as soon as possible so i can start watching them.
Thanks for your help,
In terms of chronology, they run:
Episodes I - II
Clone Wars (2D animation), Chapters 1-21
The Clone Wars (3D animation) — note that the particulars of the in-series chronology are still very confused and still being worked out. We have a thread running in the Senate Hall with the order as presented by the Visual Guide publication, though it's already been contradicted by a series that continuity-master Leland Chee has been presenting on the StarWars.com blog (this one is the 7th and most recent).
Don't forget the classics ;) Rokkur Shen (talk) 07:39, February 6, 2013 (UTC)
Ok, thanks so much for all that information, thats great. I have one more question though if youll indulge me.
Is the 3d cgi animated movie, the clone wars a seperate piece to the tv series, or are the first few episodes of the series, just the movie cut into pieces. To see the entire, 'the clone wars' experience, do you need the movie too?
Thank you so much...
The movie itself is made up of a number of episodes that were originally intended to be screened individually as episodes. Instead they decided to release them theatrically as a feature length movie. These episodes are not included in the dvd/blu-ray box set of The Clone Wars tv series. It is highly recommended to watch this "3D cgi movie" first as it sets the scene for the tv series.

Excellent, thats everything i wanted to know. Thanks for your help, its very much appreciated.
I have one more question, but it might be a hard one. Ive gone and bought all the dvds and am hoping to watch them all in chronological order. (Except for any in the clone wars that are out, but ill watch those in release order)
The only problem is that 'clone wars' Episode 22 carries on after 'the clone wars' ends. The dvds are split into 2 volumes though, with episode 22 starting some time into volume 2.
Does anyone here know at which point, with a time stamp preferably does episode 22 start in volume 2 of clone wars. This way i can stop there and start again when ive watched all of 'the clone wars'.
If anyone can help with this id be very grateful.
I don't know the exact timestamp mark personally (maybe someone else on here will), but you can always glance over the Chapter 21 article's plot summary (and beginning of the Chapter 22 article to know where it starts) to get an idea of where the demarcation is. — DigiFluid(Whine here) 15:47, February 6, 2013 (UTC)
Personally, I think the best way to enjoy them is to watch chapters 1-25 of the "clone wars" micro-series in one sitting. They were released years before "the clone wars" 3d cgi series and actually create a nice bridging story between attack of the clones and revenge of the sith. I like to think of the new clone wars series (which mostly details the outer rim sieges) as taking place somewhere in the midst of episode 22 (expanding the story if you will) which you'll better understand upon watching them. That's my opinion, others may differ, but I think it's the best compromise. Rokkur Shen (talk) 03:17, February 7, 2013 (UTC)
