Toronto -- The battle for galactic freedom is coming to TELETOON Canada this Fall when STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS launches its eagerly anticipated second season on the Canadian animation network.

Fierce battles, expanded storylines, and elaborate animation raise the stakes higher than ever in the second season of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS.
