The third season of the Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series began airing on this day in 2005.
The story focused on two different adventures: the first concentrated on the invasion of Coruscant by General Grievous' Separatist forces and the second consisted of Obi Wan and Anakin embarking on a spiritual quest.
The plot ends directly at the point Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith begins. Initially the series was supposed to act as a prologue, of sorts, to the third Prequel film.
