    They're making a CG Clone Wars series supposed to come out this fall, here's a trailer



    Still no channel yet, and George Lucas doesn't want it to come on Cartoon Network.

    Ah, you beat me to it CP! I've heard about this, and heard Lucas is shopping it around to different networks.

    He said it's to dark to be on Cartoon Network.......:up: Although i don't understand why it just can't be air during adult swim.

    I think it's more of a desire to be a primetime show than, it being too dark or whatever.

    Well i say Fox. That's the studio that put out the films, so they should have no problem airing SW during Primetime, as they know what a cash cow the franchise is.

    I'm gonna guess ABC. The Disney company and Lucas are making friends again. With the Star Tours upgrade coming and Star Wars weekends every year, it'd make sense.

    that does look promising... don't really care what channel it goes on. Fox would seem logical.

    i liked the 2D cartoons but they had too little plot and just a lot of big explosions. I'm hoping for more character development especially for Padme and Luminara

    I posted this in the Star Wars thread, at the Misc. Films Forum but I thought I'd post it here, too.


    Star Wars: The Clone Wars In Theaters and on Television in 2008

    A new era of Star Wars entertainment begins in 2008 when Star Wars: The Clone Wars, from creator George Lucas, premieres as an all-new feature film in August, followed by the television series debut in the fall, in a partnership announced today between Lucasfilm Ltd., Warner Bros. Pictures and Turner Broadcasting System Inc.
    Produced by Lucasfilm Animation, Star Wars: The Clone Wars takes audiences on incredible new Star Wars adventures, combining the legendary storytelling of Lucasfilm with an eye-popping, signature animation style. Star Wars: The Clone Wars will open in North American theaters Friday, August 15. International release dates will be announced soon.

    "I felt there were a lot more Star Wars stories left to tell," said George Lucas, executive producer of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. "I was eager to start telling some of them through animation and, at the same time, push the art of animation forward."
    The theatrical debut of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is only the beginning of all-new Star Wars adventures that continue in the fall when the long-awaited television series premieres on Cartoon Network, followed by airings on TNT. Details regarding international broadcasts will be announced shortly. Star Wars: The Clone Wars showcases an entirely new look and feel to the galaxy far, far away -- combining the expansive scope of the Star Wars Saga with state-of-the-art computer-generated animation. Each week, viewers will see a thrilling, 30-minute "mini-movie" created by the talented artists at Lucasfilm Animation.

    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 Padmι Amidala, along with brand-new heroes like Anakin's padawan learner, Ahsoka. Sinister villains -- led by Darth Sidious, Count Dooku and General Grievous -- are poised to rule the galaxy. Stakes are high, and the fate of the Star Wars universe rests in the hands of the daring Jedi Knights. Their exploits lead to the action-packed battles and astonishing new revelations that fill Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
    "Warner Bros. and Turner are uniquely positioned to deliver on the enormous potential of The Clone Wars because together they offer a world-class opportunity: the theatrical and home-video distribution of Warner Bros. and the broad reach of the Turner Networks," said Micheline Chau, President and Chief Operating Officer of Lucasfilm Ltd. "This terrific combination hits the key demographic groups, ranging from kids to adults, that make up the Star Wars audience."

    Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution, added, "This is a breakthrough project -- returning Star Wars to the big screen in a completely new way while beginning an exciting new chapter in George Lucas' legendary saga. We immediately felt that it would be a fantastic theatrical event and are thrilled to be bringing it to moviegoers."
    "Nothing like this has ever been produced for television," said Stuart Snyder, President/COO Turner Animation,Young Adults & Kids Media. "For 30 years, Star Wars has shown that it appeals to a huge breadth of fans. The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network will be appointment television for everyone in the family. We're thrilled to be working with Lucasfilm again and very excited to be playing a role in bringing this remarkable adventure to viewers."With a new story each week, Star Wars: The Clone Wars continues the tradition of thrilling stories, astonishing visuals and extraordinary music that have always been the hallmarks of the Star Wars Saga.

    Lucasfilm Animation, which is based in Marin County, Calif., with a studio in Singapore, has produced more than 30 all-new episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and production continues on even more exciting episodes.

    The first in a planned series of special web-only documentaries that chronicle the development of Star Wars: The Clone Wars debuts online today, and can be found here.

    The 2D Clone Wars cartoon was successful, so I think that's why they chose to go with the Clone Wars again. The stories won't be the same.

    If the series is successful, we will probably get another CG show, set in a different time period. I'd either want it to be set during the KotOR time period or after RotJ.

    I'm not all that excited for this. It could be fun, but I think the time period is becoming a bit bogged down. There's the CN Clone Wars cartoon, the novels, the comics, and now this as well? I'd much rather see some more exploration of other eras, especially the KotOR or New Jedi Order periods.

    wasn't there already a clone wars cartoon? How is this different from that one? And what else is there to tell? If anything, I would be interested in what happens after episode 6 or the stuff between episode 3 and 4. Not the clone wars.

    It looks like TNT will reair the ep's. That's pretty cool for those who didn't catch it on CN.

    I have good feelings about this. But, I am still interested in seeing where Lucas is going with the live action show. Being that he will be writing the first season and overseeing the whole thing.

    I saw the preview, and I wasn't terribly impressed with the animation quality. There's something very robotic about the way the characters move, which was disappointing after being so spoiled by the high quality hand animation from the original Clone Wars.

    The most telling feature is the way the Jedi move during lightsaber battles. In the original clone wars, they moved with such smooth and fluid movements it was ridiculous. In the new Clone Wars however, they are much more stiff and puppet-like. The fact that the animation isn't as good as the original isn't necessarily the kiss of death, but the genius behind the original series simply doesn't seem to be present in this new one, and so I'm skeptical as to whether or not I'm going to like it.

    Perhaps the simplest analogy would be that it might end up being like the prequels versus the original trilogy. More technically glitzy, but lacking in terms of actual heart and soul.

    I agree that the fluidity is a legitimate gripe.However, in comparison to the 2d animated clone wars there is one bright spot I see.Theres a greater chance for 'context in the action'(I cant think of a better way to describe it)When say Mace, is jumping from ship to ship in the air slicing away with his sabre,.In the 2-d it lacked a context because it was against a simplified background.It lacked a sense of motion,it lacked a sense of height.While Mace's motion was fluid ,you didnt get a great sense of the speed or how high he was in the air.
