You’ll notice I don’t post a lot of Star Wars related news here at Screen Rant. The reason is basically that George Lucas murdered the saga for me with his three prequel movies. That’s it, plain and simple. I think the man became:
A. Too full of himself (understandable I suppose considering the money and power he wields).
B. Too enamored of the VFX/CGI at the expense of the story and characters.
Having said that, I did enjoy the mini-episode animated Clone Wars saga that was broadcast on Cartoon Network. Lucas was pretty much hands-off on these and they were created by Genndy Tartakovsky, creator of Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack.
Well for all of you die hard Star Wars fans that were NOT jaded by the Phantom Menace and Hayden Christensen as Anakin, there’s a brand new Clone Wars series coming out soon. This one will be CGI and will be full (half hour?) episodes as opposed to five minute clips.
I’ve watched the trailer and personally I think it takes itself too seriously. Maybe it’s the music, I don’t know, but it almost seemed like a parody of itself to me.
You can see the trailer at StarWars.com.
I’m sure most folks will disagree with my opinion on this. :-)
