Brief Synopsis:
The fourth episode of my Clone Wars Movie Series. Eight episodes of the TV series are presented in the classical Star Wars movie structure. The Clone Wars continue to rage across the Galaxy. With no end in sight, over a thousand worlds have declared neutrality. Suspecting a Seperatist plot, Obi-Wan Kenobi has been sent to question the leader of the Council of Neutral Systems, the Duchess of Mandalore.
Intention:
The Clone Wars movie and TV series were a great addition to Star Wars canon. However, there was a lot of filler, it was often very child-orientated and had villains that were less than threatening. I wanted to create a movie series that stuck to the Star Wars movie structure while also stripping out the filler, removing the childish elements and creating threatening villains.

- Cut Aerial part of Vizla/Kenobi fight.
- Cut final Kenobi/Satine scene on Concordia.
- Cut entire on-board assassination storyline from Voyage of Temptation
- Intercut The Duchess of Mandalore & Senate Spy so both episodes occur simultaneously.

- Cut Anakin/Ahsoka scenes at the "fortress".
- Cut Sheild generator pointer sequence.
- Cut Ahsoka's briefing scene.

This is by far the best edit you have made for this series, but I think the two arcs you have chosen really helped. The first Mandalore and Geonosis arcs are some of the, if not the, best arcs from the first two seasons of the show and you've masterfully bridged them together.

I've really enjoyed all of your movies and this one is no exception, you've made the definitive way to watch this series. You've highligthed all the great things about this show we all love and gotten rid of all the annoying aspects. The series felt like Star Wars before but now it IS Star Wars.

I do have a few, very minor, criticisms. I feel like there are some transitions where you forgot to put in a wipe, but that may be intentional but it's still noticeable. There are quite a few jarring music ques that come in abruptly or end abruptly, it does not deter from the overall quality of the edit but it did catch me off guard the first time.

Other than that this edit is nearly perfect. I can not wait until Episode V.
