Instead of the crawls it has the guy from Starship Troopers ("Would you like to know more?" ) narrating the crawl info.  no no

Still, not as bad as the voice they used for Jabbas uncle.

Post Prequal cash in. Rent on DVD at best I expect.

So, when do we start putting dollar signs with Lucas?

Yes. Thats the joke.

I finally saw the Clone Wars movie. I would rate it somewhere between "decent" and "pretty good". It is what it is--a pilot for a saturday-morning-cartoonified version of Star Wars.

If you are expecting something as epic as the movies, then you will be disappointed. But it's not as bad as the critics seem to be saying.

Jeff's advice: see it if you have kids, or if you are a super-nerdy Star Wars fan who feels compelled to see everything. If not, wait for the TV show which I am convinced will be awesome.

Oh it will be, somebody other than Lucas will be directing it  tongue.

Have they released any information at all about it yet?

Not a whole lot, but here's what I've been able to gather so far:

-Many episodes will focus on non-main characters. (There's at least one Kit Fisto episode, one Plo Koon episode, and episodes devoted to clone regimens and stuff.) This will hopefully take care of any criticisms of "well we already know what happens to Obi-Wan/Anakin so there won't be any suspense".

-There will be 100 episodes.

-There will be "guest directors". For instance, some japanese guy I've never heard of is directing a General Grievous intro-episode in the first season.

-Veteran animation writers will be working on the show. Paul Dini has confirmed that he's written a few episodes.

-One episode featuring Yoda has already premiered at the most recent Television Critics Association thingy. The reaction was extremely positive. Just as an example, here's the LA Times report: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/showtracker/2008/07/tca-star-wars-t.html

There were a ton of other reviews/reports/things that basically said it was awesome.

So wait, is it live action or Clone Wars 3D style?

I didn't like the saber style of fighting in the movie, it was way too cartoony fast.

I'm pretty sure the live-action series is the bounty hunter one.

The weekly series is the same 3D animation as in the movie.

I thought all of the lightsaber duels featuring that darkside chick were ridiculously lame. The character animation was way too stiff--I could have made a better looking duel with my action figures at home.

The Dooku duel was surprisingly tense, though.

So the TV series is just Clone Wars but 3D?

So lame.

There's going to be another series in a year or two that's live action. It's supposed to be much more serious and be mostly about the rise of the Empire and, as Nix said, bounty hunters. That's the one I'm waiting for.

Yeah, the live one better not suck. Star Wars has more to offer than just Jedi waving Lightsabers really fast.

 This 3D series could be at least set between the goddamn OT. I remember seeing some 3D promo Ackbar and Mon Mothma ages ago with some X-Wings...what happened to those?

That was just a fan made "concept" of what an animated 3D series sequell about the Thrawn trilogy could be (it cant be anything but frakking awesome).. just the teaser..

Jedi are so frakkin cool.  They're like superheroes, except they're invinceable and they can bounce lazers off their light sabres.  I wish there was something in Star Wars that really got down to focusing how frakking badass the Jedi really were.... I mean seriously.... they can cut through whole spaceships with one lightsabre!

What about the sith? I think the sith are highly under-rated nowadays...with them having the image of being evil...I mean with all the rules the jedi have to follow why would you want to be one? it would be like being a jehovah's witness or something in that manner.

Indeed they did...Episode 5 "The Empire Strikes Back" I didn't think nothing of it until I saw "Return of the Jedi" I wonder what Luke thought when Obi-wan told him that she was his sister...

I watched The Clone Wars today, and I really couldn't get into it, the voice acting was a bit hammy and the storyline was dry.

A free Star Wars RTS that may kick EaW in the balls.

For the ground battles at least anyway. Anyone love how mods sometimes are more lore and canon friendly than the actual games?

If its the one I'm thinking of the DVD is currently on sale here in New Zealand and seems to have been released in the States toward the end of July. Or is there another one?

Awesome pic faze..

There is a lot derivated from Lucas works.. in so many ways..

I renember for example how the THX system was born after Return of the Jedi until developed in today home-cinema and teathers systems..
