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

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.

Isn't Skywalker's apprentice missing a headtail?

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.

Well i thought they were supposed to have three. I cant realy remember the name either but it bugs me how they throw in a character who probably wont die, so it makes it odd that she was never mentioned or seen in episode three.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Shes supposed to be a Togruta, which is what Shaak Ti is.  Yes they are supposed to have three. Shaak Ti does, as does every other togruta seen, i e in the comics. In general they are more on the vicious side of things, warriors. This girl, just seems like a whiny weakling. What on earth would make Skywalker choose her as an aprrentice. I say SHE must die. ITs the ONLY way I'll accpet any of this movie as cannon. If not... eh... what can I say. I'll ignore it like I have ignored Splinter of the Minds eye.

Oh.... right. They are supposed to have three. I'm sorry, I wrote that this morning before I'd really woken up.

You kinda have to read it to get the full affect. Kinda like seeing the Holiday Special. You just don't realize how awful it is till you've been there.

Amen to that tongue

It's amazing how many second hand copies are floating around of Splinter of the Mind's Eye, wonder why... tongue

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Has anyone seen the new battle clip of the Battle of Christophsis?  Pretty neat.  At least they're finally using the Jet Troopers from the Battlefront game.  And they even have the correct jetpacks.  The Jango Fett Geonosis Arena type jetpack.

Watch the above video BEFORE commenting.

You see they are trying to focus on what we DIDN"T see in the moves. Which is Obi and Anie's relationship at a good time, The Jedi's relationship with the Clones, and other star systems coming to the CS. 
All and all I am looking forward to it and I think we should all SEE it for our selves BEFORE we judge to harshly.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

I try to wait to resereve judgement untill I see things. I always have, that's why i've gone to see movies that almost everyone pans, but I end up enjoying and vice versa. I make my own mind on things.

Other Clone Wars information that I happened to see. I went to the bookstore yesterday after work and apparently in the wonderuful world of marketing the hell out of something, Karen Traviss wrote the novel adaptation of The Clone Wars.  I don't know if the book will be as good as her others ( I'm thinking No. As i read a page or two, it seemed more simplistic to me.)

she can't die in the movie, it's too soon. but in the tv show, then she can die. but since ani does become vader, it's most likely she gets killed in the purge.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Ugh, Traviss is awful. I wish she'd just stop.

But, I am sorta waiting for the movie to make my final judgement.

They aren't COMPLETELY real in my opinion. I know that sounds a little cruel, but this is why: they had their emotions tampered with. For example, none of the clones ever question their existence; they don't question anything for that matter. And I know this might sound a little.....inappropiate, but do clones have "the needs of men"? In other words do they need women?....

And about the movie I personally think it might be good, I read somewhere that someone was trying to start a 3 way war between the Republic, the CIS, and the Hutts. That's why Jabba's son was kidnapped.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

so apparently the new tv show is to be an expansion and continuation of the old series, and parts of the novel Labyrinth of Evil will be used in this show.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Huh. I wonder why they didn't use Labyrinth of Evil in the old CW then? Seeing as they directly contradicted it in the old CW.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

dunno, in the old CW, Genndy Tartakovsky (creator of Dexter's Laboratory and the Powerpuff Girls) pretty much had all control, George has more power over this new series.

Spoiler Warning...
Film Reaction





So i saw Clone Wars last night, and it was really cute. this is not the star wars i love and embrace.  But having said that the characters are fun.  I was hoping to see some cool new bounty hunters since it was a "Jabba-centric" film but there arent any distinguishing villians in Jabbas thrown room, the closest thing to a henchman was an R-7 droid working w/ a sith. 
The coolest character IMO was a clone named Rex, and there is some IG droids bumping around a big city Hutts palace...performing their duties w/ moderate competence.
overall- it was light hearted fun. i just hope the live action show is darker, because starwars is aiming for younger and younger demo.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

So it might be worth seeing then eh Cujo?


Ok I feel better knowing that the series is in a sense a continuation, and that while this togruta chick may live now, she will not survive as a whole. There are a few options for her. 1.She dies 2. She leaves the jedi order before the events of Labyrinth of Evil or 3. She dies tongue If she was trained to the point of Knighthood then the council would have no choice as to make Skywalker a Master. But its clear in RotS that he is not a Jedi Master and the council does not yet see him fit as one yet. The benchmark for becoming a Master is training a padawan to the point of Knighthood. Obi-Wan followed this as he foilows the tradional path. ( I know there are other ways of ataining the rank of Master,  but for arguments sake I'm leaving them out). I'm quite curious how they take it from here.

ps.  Do they any chance address the missing lekku? As a togruta fan that seem to really bug me.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

*SPOILERS BELOW*






So, I just got back from it.

1. *sniffle* Without John Williams it... just... isn't SW at all.... I hate the music in this. I want the REAL title song back. I want the REAL credit song back. *sob*

2. Hutts don't speak Basic, and Ziro is just creepy, I could barely stand the scenes with him in it.

3. Padme was pushed into it for no real reason at all, it seemed forced.

4. The battle droids shouldn't have that much personality.

5. I hate the graphics.

6. Ahsoka really was kinda cool. XD

7. I love Asajj Ventress, too.

8. Obi's great as well.

9. Huttlets are omg!socute! I want one! smile

10. I actually liked the Clonetroopers. I wouldn't think I would, what with Traviss's influence. But I did. Rex was awesome.

11. *sigh* I liked it. I really did. I was wrong, this isn't the absolute death of SW. The tv series will be, but so far, the movie is alright.

Oh, and Si, there is no missing lekku. She has three, like she's supposed to. The middle one's just not as long yet, probably cause she's still a kid.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

... no John Williams? well, i refuse to watch this now.

EDIT: then again, the old Clone Wars didn't use John Williams either.. but this was a full-feature movie so I assume it had the Star Wars titles n everything right? including the 20th century fox sign?

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Yeah, it's some guy called Kevin Kiner. It's all drums/flutey/indian type stuff and metal. And the main theme is butchered horribly, they try to make it into a march. 0_0

There is no 20th century fox sign. This was a Warner Brothers movie cause 20th Fox said it was junk and threw it out.

Hey, I actually liked the metal.  I love John Williams as well, but metal has long been what Star Wars has been missing.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

GL has said that at first he considered the popular music of the time for SW, back in 77. The reason he didn't do that was cause he wanted something timeless, something that wouldn't mark it as being made in a certain era. Said that in Empire of Dreams.

And at the time his choice made sense; to not include metal sounds.  Metal was very new then, it was unknown if it would last.  Also, he _did_ make a few concessions to music of the time.  Lepti Nek anyone?  However, I prefer that to Jedi Rocks.  Lepti Nek was obviously a product of the 70's, but that's no reason to have discarded it.

Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

A few references are ok, an entire soundtrack wouldn't have been. For example, in AOTC you can clearly hear the electric guitars going off at one point. That's fine.

Agreed.  It would be ridiculous if they made a Star Wars movie suddenly with an entirely metal soundtrack.
