Star Wars: The Clone Wars Trailer… Meh

amidala Star Wars: The Clone Wars Trailer... MehYou’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.

I’m sure most folks will disagree with my opinion on this. icon smile Star Wars: The Clone Wars Trailer... Meh

  1. It looks ok to me, but to be honest, all it really looks like is a fleshed-out CG version of the Clone Wars story we already know about. Seems like a lot of trouble/money to retell what’s becoming an already tired story.

    I’d prefer Knights of the Old Republic myself…

  2. I loved Samurai Jack!!!

    I haven’t seen Episode I or II of Star Wars. I have seen Revenge of the Sith once, but personally I am, without a doubt, a fan of the original three as opposed to the prequels. Especially Return of the Jedi :)

  3. The only advice I can give you if you’re going to watch I & II is to drink heavily…

  4. I think we may see more 3D CGI as the production time for this sort of animation drops with better software and faster processing.

    JLA would definitely be cool in 3D.

    Do you remember that short-lived Spider-Man 3D animated series on MTV?
