Topic: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

The 90-minute animated feature film is going to be in theaters this 15th of August, 2008. This film "will lead the way for a television series will debut in the fall of 2008. The TV series will air on Cartoon Network and TNT." (Source)

In May 2007, we discussed this topic in-depth when the first trailer was released. Boba Fett is not in the trailer.

For this thread to have some lasting resourcefulness -- all of this will change between now, the premiere and thereafter -- here are some notable links:

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Maybe just a rehash of the cartoons, or if not that, more about the clone wars. I hope they do a bit about the commandos.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

I didn't know it was going to air on TNT. Hardcore. But I just saw the first trailer that aired on the TV today, and saw a cardboard standup of the movie in the theatre just yesterday.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

if anyone goes to see Hellboy II, there is a new trailer for Clone Wars in the previews.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Oh yeah, I saw that part. Saw hellboy just last saturday! Awsome.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

I saw a commercial for it...it doesn't look very good, but I'll still watch it...

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

The Clone Wars trailer was also in front of The Incredible Hulk, I recall. No one in the audience cheered.

Shame, shame, shame. It looked way too childish for me.

There's the theatrical, teaser, and an extended action scene.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Fett_II, nice link. I'm glad to see Yahoo! Movies cleaned up their act; it's very easy to get those videos playin'.

As for the content of the videos... It's also disappointing that the voices are not the same.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

apparently all the current reviews for Clone Wars are good

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

I went to the official site and watched some videos. Apparently Lucas wants to make the clones all different and unique to show the audience that they are real men, not mindless drones. Watch The Clones are Coming video to see what they are doing about that.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

I agree about the voices... they should have stayed the same. Voice over work is quite respectable for well known actors these days and can be virtually anywhere the actor is to conform to their schedual. I bet they didn't try hard enought to get them to do it.  Does any one know if Temura did any clone voices? I know he did some vocal work for the RC game so maybe he did some more for TCW.

I saw a few of the commericals they aired on Nickelodeon, and at least some parts or levels seem geared towards the under 15 set. The whole bit with the stupid baby Hutt seems completely pointless in my opinion. But then I have seen other trailers that hightlight more of more intense fighting aspect of the film and those seem quite interesting. Some of the character deveiopment (visually i mean) seems off compared to the others. I don't know why that could be, too many lead animators not showing each other their work?

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Unfortunately, and shockingly, the art is done that way on purpose using "new" technology. I guess someone forgot to tell them that stuff was old 15 years ago...

Anyways, I don't like the Huttling idea either. Jabba is stuck a guy and therefore cannot have a kid! He prefers human or humanoid females anyway. So him having a kid is improbable.

Less crazy than you would think. In the Han Solo trilogy (the one that includes Rebel Dawn) it has a male hutt character cycle into a female hutt, so that they can have a huttling. So I believe that they can morph genders, making it physically possible for Jabba to have a huttling. But is it in line with Jabba's nature or character? No I do not think so.

Huts are hermaphrodites. According to Wookieepedia at least.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Yeah, Hutts are supposed to do that. Change from guy to girl and then back. To have kids. Except I read somewhere (I think it was the sw.com official database) that Jabba was born mutated to where he was always a guy. And I know he prefers humanoids to Hutts anyway (cause it is possible for Hutts to have kids with each other, just I don't think it happens often? I know it happened in a comic book once), because I also read that the other Hutts think he's gross for his humanoid obsession. So unless he decided that he wanted a kid even if it meant sleeping with another Hutt.... But I'm going to wait and see what they say on it. And unless this Huttling dies in the movie, I've never heard a mention of Jabba's son. And I think I know Jabba's family fairy well.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

I'm leaning that way, but I'm going to wait till I see it to decide for sure.

Ok, I'm going to take it as an interpretation of events, but not necessarily exactly what happened....

Isn't Skywalker's apprentice missing a headtail?

Yeah, it's kinda how I view the original Clone Wars. Things like the Mace episodes specifically. You could say they were retold through the eyes of that little kid, who, not knowing any better, and being a kid, blew it out of proportion and made Mace into a superhero. Just an example.

No, she has two. I don't think she's a Twi'lek, though, anyway. I think she's the same species as Shaak Ti. Which I can't remember the name of right off.
