The never ending cash cow known as Star Wars is rolling on this August with the theatrical premiere of the forthcoming CG toon The Clone Wars.
Despite being phenominally done in standard animation a few years back, the soon-to-be released CG film and future series shows the much spoken of Clone Wars, which took place between Star Wars Episodes 2 and 3.
As the flick hits theaters on August 15, the hype train starts this week, with the first one-sheet hitting theaters this Friday (seen above), plus the official release of the first trailer, which airs on Cartoon Network, TNT, TBS, CNN, and Boomerang at 7:58pm in all U.S. time zones on Thursday…and is attached to Speed Racer this Friday.
Personally? While the CG is looking nice, with great shading work, I keep getting reminded of the old British Supermarionation shows like Captain Scarlett and Thunderbirds. Besides, didn’t Genndy Tardiofsky already do this…and really FREAKING well?
Oh well. I know they’re gonna sucker me out of my $10. Such a cheap whore am I.
