Cloning Star Wars

It's so dang profitable:

The Clone Wars deal is part of a new partnership between Lucasfilm, Warner Bros. Pictures and Turner Broadcasting System Inc. Also announced as an important facet of this partnership was confirmation that The Clone Wars will first be seen by audiences as a theatrical film (reportedly collecting the first three episodes), which will be released by Warner Bros. in North American theaters on Friday, August 15th.


The announcement gives an overview of the series, saying "On the front lines of an intergalactic struggle between good and evil, fans young and old will join such favorite characters as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Padmé Amidala, along with brand-new heroes like Anakin's padawan learner, Ahsoka.

It's releasing on the Independence Day of India and the padawan of Anakin has a name that closely resembles Ashoka -- the greatest Emperor of India. I'm likely reading too much into it.

My God, Lucas is a horrible writer!

I am NEVER going to waste my time seeing anymore SW films.

I wonder who wrote that first, non-stinker. Someone said that it was Lucas' ex wife. Anyway stay away like it has halitosis, plague, pox and AIDS.

I watched the Menace on the screen with a friend who was a big Star Wars fan. I asked him his opinion of the movie.

"Hmm...uh...ah," was his response.

I also remember that the audio and the lip movements were out of sync in the beginning of the movie; it was a bad sign.

I watched the trilogy mainly for the special effects: the pod race in the first one, the battle at the end of the second, the personal fights at the climax of the third. Other than that the movies had little going for them.

i don't know why they are doing this series, I think it would be better with the loony toons charactures spoofing it.
