Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a 2008 computer-animated epic space opera feature film produced by Lucasfilm and Lucasfilm Animation, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures and released on August 15, 2008 (making it the only Star Wars film so far to be distributed by that company). The film is set in the Star Wars universe during the three-year time period between the films Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002) and Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005). Set during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker is assigned an apprentice, Ahsoka Tano. Jabba the Hutt enlists them to rescue his kidnapped son Rotta in exchange for an alliance. Anakin and Ahsoka track the kidnapper to a planet where they are ambushed by Count Dooku's apprentice Asajj Ventress and discover that Dooku hopes to frame the Jedi for Rotta's kidnapping.

The film premiered on August 10, 2008 at Grauman's Egyptian Theatre, followed by a wide release on August 14, 2008 across Australia and on August 15 in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. The Clone Wars served as the pilot to the television series of the same name, which debuted on October 3, 2008 on Cartoon Network. The film received largely negative reviews, becoming the worst reviewed theatrically released Star Wars film. Critics panned the writing, animation, tone, and dialogue, however Kevin Kiner's score, the character of Captain Rex, and Christopher Lee's performance were well received by some. Despite negative reviews, the film was a box office success, having grossed $68.3 million worldwide against an $8.5 million budget.
