Am I the only one who really dislikes the Clone Wars series? That show just has no character, and I can't stand the animation style.


The Clone Wars miniseries from Genndy Tartakovsky was the shit though.

I didn't care for any of the clone wars cartoons either. I'd rather watch The Ewoks Battle for Endor.

The current one that uses CG is horrible, but the one that aired earlier in the 2000's wasn't that bad. I liked that how it presented the story and ended it right where Episode III starts.

That and it actually showed more of Anakin's fall from grace with his anger consuming him. Not to mention the reveal of Grievous and the Jedi's themselves were so much more bad ass then what Episode III gave us.

The CG cartoon now just feels so limited in everything it can do since you know how it ends and there's no weight to anything ever happening. That and after episode III it's clearly stated Anakin is a goddamn child killer, yet this show tries to make us root for him.

Another thing that bums me out about it is Disney has crappy digital copies. I'm pretty sure they aren't in HD. I don't know if they do it to the studios they own or just the ones released under the Disney name. I don't buy movies anymore without a digital copy. Avengers and The Secret World of Arrietty the the only blurays I watched this year that I had to put into my player.

The 2d animated one was awesome, this new one is shit.

We all knew it was pretty obvious at this point, but now it's somewhat official. This is likely the last season of Clone Wars on CN.

I kind of lost interest in the show over the years, this plus watching it on SD since Verizon FIOS didn't get CN in HD until about a month ago!

Wait... FIOS has CN in HD now??? If I wasn't without power right now due to the storm I'd check this out. I swear I don't have it unless its one of those BS Verizon deals where you have to call to get it activated. When Nickelodeon and a few others went HD we had to call - so annoying.

Clone wars was decent for a 'kids' show, The show looked pretty spectacular compared to other computer animated shows in the past, the style takes a little while to get used to and some may not like it but the show does have some interesting lore for those fans, including myself, that love star wars. The only thing I could really nitpick is that the battle droids are too dumb. The new movies are not perfect but the originals weren't either. As for Disney buying the rights I have hopes that we will see similar treatment in the dvd bluray releases as they do their other disney movies (DVD/Bluray/Digital Combo pack ftw). I also would hope that they would see fit to release the original version again, which are out of print and hard to get.

According to British tabloid site Express.co.uk


I'll believe it when I see it. It is a horrible idea and anyone who knows even the smallest bit about Star Wars would know it is a horrible idea. I guess they could clone him but honestly, they can't be out of ideas already - they haven't done anything yet!

He comes back as a good guy to chase robot darth maul in the future to stop him from assassinating kid pad me to ensure his son lives but in order to do so he must make a pact to join darth sidious at the age of 25.

Have to agree with that sentiment. He's dead, he should remain dead.

What are peoples thoughts on Michael Arndt being the screenwriter? I think it'll add some heart, which is something the prequels lacked.

Calling anything episode 7 is a bad idea, as is bringing back Vader. But if it ended up that a Joruus C'Baoth-like character started going around in Vader's suit killing good guys - that could be cool. But they would have to have the reveal at the end of the movie(That it isn't Vader) and there is no way that is going to happen.

I hope the third trilogy has NO returning characters in it(not even the droids). They are thinking too small if they think they need Han Solo to tell a story.

The original actors are too old to play Thrawn-era characters. I would imagine if they went off the books it would be new jedi order or after.

So Harrison Ford is confirmed as coming back to play Han Solo, supposedly a pretty substantial part. Thoughts?

I like it. Have wanted more stories on film with the OT characters since I was a kid.

Obviously there could be a cool story to tell with the OT folks, I still think it would be better if they went far into the future and told a story without Han and friends.
