  Star Wars saga to continue in cartoons
Updated 21 February 2003, 10.04

A promotional image from Star Wars: Clone Wars
Star Wars fans are in for real treat because the story is going to continue in a new series of cartoons.

The 20 shows are not very long at around two or three minutes each, but even so they're sure to be a massive hit.

The short films will take place in the time between Episodes II and III and will fill in loads of cool bits from the Clone Wars.

Huge battles

The cartoons may show what happens to Anakin next

They're going to be shown on the Cartoon Network in between other programmes.

If you are already a fan of the cartoons Samurai Jack and Dexter's Laboratory then you will be familiar with the look of the new show, because the same man is directing the Star Wars shorts.

The Clone Wars were a series of huge battles between the Jedi-led clone troopers and separatist armies that left only a handful of Jedi alive.

The next (and final) full-length Star Wars movie, Episode III, starts filming later this year and will be out in 2005.
