The Clone Wars trailer

May. 28, 2007by: Ben Barna
The puppet masters pulling the strings behind the curtain at the official STAR WARS website have gone ahead and posted the first trailer for the upcoming animated series STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS. Unfolding between ATTACK OF THE CLONES and REVENGE OF THE SITH, it looks like theyve really managed to capture the feel of prequels, which for some of you, may not be a good thing. Dont confuse this with the original CLONE WARS cartoon which aired on the Cartoon Network from 2003 to 2005. This is a continuation of that earlier series and has the word the in front of it to distinguish itself from its predecessor. Also, its done 3D CGI animation, which everything but the actors at Lucasfilm is these days. The series is said to be episodic, so dont expect the whole thing to focus on the misadventures of young Anakin, as one rumoured episode centers solely on Storm Troopers. The series is expected to debut in the fall of 2008 and you can check the trailer out HERE. Thanks to Kyle for the heads up.
Extra Tidbit: An appearance by Boba Fett in the series has not been ruled out.

As Star Wars Schmoes

I hope you all watched the History Channel program last night so you could learn just how mind-blowingly important Star Wars is to the very future of our society. Now it did change my life when I was an 11 year old kid watching Episode IV, but as an adult, the prequels were just plain awful. Excuses were made by many for Annie (ugh!) being a whiny brat. But that's how a good idea dies; to the sound of thunderous applause. Sniff. Enjoy your CG cartoon.

I wouldn't play it even if it WAS a video game, lol.

So why would I watch it now that we know it's a show?

I think it looks amazing. Also, that person in the armor in the trailer is Boba Fett. Jango Fett was killed in AOTC, before the woman, Asajj Ventress, was even introduced into the star wars universe.

Looks great, but they didn't show any of the actual gameplay.

This is a video game, right? Cuz why else would anyone watch it?

make a cartoon about the books post return of the jedi, not mid-crap. An X-wing cartoon would be bitchin, and voicing isard and thrawn would be a huge debate.

WHY?

I love Star Wars, but ... There was already excellent cartoon CLONE WARS which presented Clone Wars event, and this is only making things more complicated.

not bad

It looks like they are trying to keep to the character design of the 2d animated show. Yoda, Obi-Wan,And Mace do look the same just on 3d

Is it just me, or does it seem like they're taking a step BACK in CG animation? Everyone but the droids look fucking ridiculous in that trailer.
