A Galaxy Divided

Or should I say The Clone Wars: Volume 1? The Star Wars site announced today that four of the most popular episodes from the new animated series will be available on DVD on March 24th. What four episodes? "Ambush" and the three-part "Malevolence" saga. They just so happen to be the first 4 episode aired. This set will cost $19.99. Wow, what a rip off.

However, there is good news.
Meanwhile, for fans eager to own the entire first season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Lucasfilm is in the midst of producing a multi-disc boxed set that is expected to debut later in 2009. Full details of the first-season DVD boxed set, which is also planned to mark the first Blu-Ray appearance of the series, will be announced later this year. The collection will include substantial bonus material that is currently in production at Lucasfilm, including explorations of the behind-the-scenes creation of the hit series.
Phew, thank God! I'm glad they announced this because I didn't want to buy this and then have them release the entire first season. We know it's coming; we'll just have to wait until the end of summer or early fall to get it. My money's on September, right before season 2 begins.
