Jay Cochran - April 29, 2009
Timed to celebrate the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo, will feature streaming Spanish-language episodes from the popular animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Produced by Lucasfilm Animation and originally airing on Cartoon Network, the weekly series has previously been unavailable online in alternate languages. Five episodes of the hit TV series – Ambush, Trespass, Dooku Captured, The Gungan General and Hostage Crisis – will be available on from May 1 through May 7.

Also to commemorate the holiday – which celebrates the Mexican army’s 1862 defeat of invading French forces – will feature an assortment of related content highlighting the Mexican Star Wars fan experience, as well as kid-friendly cultural activities, crafts, Spanish-language multimedia and more.

“We thought it would be a fun experiment to bring the Spanish-language version of The Clone Wars to our online audience in celebration of Cinco de Mayo.” said Bill Gannon, Director of Online Operations for Lucasfilm. “To quote Obi-Wan Kenobi, we are taking our first step into a larger world.”

In addition to the holiday-themed activities of, Star Wars: The Clone Wars will also be available for viewers to re-experience on TV, as well. Beginning May 1, Cartoon Network will premiere Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Decoded, a full slate of 22 enhanced episodes from the series’ first season. Using text windows to provide in-the-moment insights into all aspects of the sweeping galactic conflict—from trivia to background on characters and storylines—Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Decoded will unlock the secrets of the series and provide a unique look at a "galaxy far, far away."
