So tell me, seriously - does the image above make you excited to see a new Star Wars series about the Clone Wars?
In case you don't know, there's a new completely CGI animated series coming out in the Fall that picks up where Episode 3 left off. So what actually should have happened in Episodes 2 & 3 will take place in this animated TV show.
The twist is that Lucasfilm will kick off the series with a theatrical movie which will be released on August 15th.
Genndy Tartakovsky, director of the first Clone Wars series, will not be involved with the production. That's too bad because that series was quite well done story-wise, although I wasn't a big fan of the animation style.
Although Genndy isn't involved, I suppose there may be some hope that this may be decent since George Lucas is neither directing nor writing the episodes. I think his best destiny is basically being a tech-geek in charge of the visual/CGI effects.
Personally, I find it ironic that so many people scoff at Star Trek fans wanting new material on both the big and small screen, but when it comes to Star Wars they say:
Personally, I think this horse is dead and maybe they ought to think about not beating it any more.
But since it's inevitable (they already have 30 episodes in the can), do you think it's going to be any good? Are you looking forward to it? Or are you sick or it?
