The Clone Wars are a series of fictional intragalactic battles in George Lucas's science fiction saga Star Wars. The conflict is first mentioned in the film, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977), but no details are given (except for the implication of clones being involved), and the wars themselves are not featured until the series' fifth and sixth films, Attack of the Clones (2002) and Revenge of the Sith (2005), the second and third episodes of the six-part Star Wars film series. The 2D animated microseries Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003–2005) and 3D CGI animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008–present), chronicle some of the war's major campaigns. Additional events and stories are detailed in a multimedia campaign consisting of Star Wars literature and video games. Many of the events featured have parallels in history, politics, and mythology from which Lucas and other writers drew inspiration.

The Clone Wars began during the Separatist Crisis when thousands of star systems seceded from the Galactic Republic to form the Confederacy of Independent Systems (CIS). The first battle occurs on the CIS planet Geonosis where the Republic's new clone army, led by Jedi generals, combats the Separatists' battle droids. War quickly spreads across the galaxy and eventually reaches the Republic's capital, Coruscant. The Clone Wars end shortly after the Great Jedi Purge with the Separatist Massacre on Mustafar and the establishment of the Galactic Empire. The events causing the war and those leading to its conclusion are orchestrated by Darth Sidious, the Sith alter ego of the Republic's chief executive, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine

Selector Miller has 'one eye' on World Cup

England have named their squad for the forthcoming Twenty20 and one-day international series against Australia.
Paul Collingwood will captain the World Twenty20 champions in a two-match series before Test skipper Andrew Strauss takes over for the seven ODIs.
Warwickshire seamer Chris Woakes is the only uncapped player named, with the first T20 in Adelaide on 12 January.
Craig Kieswetter (T20 series only), Luke Wright, Michael Yardy and James Tredwell are also in the party.
Kevin Pietersen returns to the limited overs set-up after being dropped for last summer's series against Pakistan, while Chris Tremlett returns for the first time in two years.
But Ravi Bopara has been dropped from the squad that beat Pakistan in September with Ian Bell, who missed those matches through injury, coming back in.
Steve Davies retains his place as 50-over wicketkeeper, with Kieswetter still under T20 consideration only, and there is no return yet for Matt Prior - England's Test choice and a player who still wants to play in all international formats.

Chris will be hungry for his international debut and vying for a place with a number of other quality pace bowlers
England selector Geoff Miller
In a packed winter of cricket, attention will shift to the shorter forms of the game upon the completion of the five-match Ashes series.
England lead 1-0 after two Tests and know Australia must win two of the last three matches to reclaim the urn they lost as tourists in 2009.
Once the Test, T20 and ODI series are over, both teams head to the World Cup in the sub-continent, which starts on 19 February.
"While our focus is currently on retaining the Ashes in Australia we are excited by the prospect of taking on Australia in the limited-overs format as they are amongst the best in the world in the shorter form of the game," said England national selector Geoff Miller.
"We believe we've picked a well balanced squad to cover both the two Twenty20 matches and the ensuing seven-match ODI series against Australia.
"This series will be the ideal lead up to the ICC World Cup which immediately follows the tour of Australia."

606: DEBATE
Your thoughts on England's T20 and ODI squad
Woakes comes into the reckoning after Nottinghamshire fast bowler Stuart Broad was ruled out of the remainder of the tour with a torn abdominal muscle.
"With Stuart Broad ruled out of the series we've needed to bolster our pace bowling stocks and Chris Woakes comes into the squad after knocking on the door for some time," stated Miller.
"Chris will be hungry for his international debut and vying for a place with a number of other quality pace bowlers.
"Craig Kieswetter will join the squad for two Twenty20 matches only before joining the England Lions tour of the West Indies."
England have won five consecutive ODI series since the tour of South Africa last winter and Miller added: "To pit yourself against the number one ranked ODI side in the world over a seven-match series is the perfect preparation for a World Cup."
"We'll be looking to continue the recent run of results the ODI squad has enjoyed over the past 18 months.
Broad faces a tight schedule to recover in time for the World Cup but is likely to be included in the initial squad at least.
England are due to name a provisional 30-man party on 19 December, pared down to 15 a month later.
England squad: Andrew Strauss (Middlesex) - (ODI Captain, ODI squad only), Paul Collingwood (Durham) - (T20 Captain), James Anderson (Lancashire), Ian Bell (Warwickshire), Tim Bresnan, (Yorkshire), Steven Davies (Surrey), Eoin Morgan (Middlesex), Craig Kieswetter (Somerset) - (T20 squad only), Kevin Pietersen (Surrey), Ajmal Shahzad (Yorkshire), Graeme Swann (Nottinghamshire), James Tredwell (Kent), Chris Tremlett (Surrey), Jonathan Trott (Warwickshire), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Luke Wright (Sussex), Michael Yardy (Sussex).
