What's everyone's feeling about/expectation of the upcoming Clone Wars release?

TKA-001

I think it was a big mistake to have it focus on Anakin and Obi-Wan. There's already a lot of EU about them, and there's certainly plenty about them that takes place during the Clone Wars. I'd much rather they think of other characters to follow. Perhaps some of the clone troopers, as long as it doesn't degenerate into the Mandalorian-praising orgy that some of the EU paints the clones as being.

Needless to say, I say bollocks to Anakin having an apprentice.

Gurges-Ahter

That's a good point, although I've read that the subsequent TV series focuses on a lot more outside of Anakin/Obi-Wan. I think for the purpose of the movie, focusing on Anakin/Obi-Wan wasn't a bad idea because most of the people who will watch the movie aren't familiar with the EU.

Bah, if LucasFilms wants to make money, they can only do it when CG-paper-mannequins of Hayden Christiansen and Ewan McGregor are decorating the screen. It's a silly idea to go ahead with some obscure Twi'Lek for a hero, because frankly, nobody gives a crap for them.

That said, the story is mighty weird and the CG is, well, not my type. I do not have high expectations for this shindig, but what the hell, it's Star Wars.

I'm really disappointed that they made the next big SW event something thats been done to death, and wasn't that interesting in the first place IMO, It also is a slap in the face to the EU writers who made the great comics that got us through the 3 year gap between AOTC-ROTS, bah! to cut a long story short I'm not happy about it, there even putting the Dark Times Comic series (from Dark horse) on hold to make room for a clone wars related comic line lol, theres more clone wars related material now than anything else (Bar maybe NJO). It makes me laugh when someone said "We've all been wondering what the clone wars were since Obi-Wan mentioned it in ANH", I havn't :)

Well I don't like how the characters look, almost like the cartoon Clone Wars in 3D, the cartoons didn't look bad but the 3D look is just not what I was hoping, I pictured a realistic version of the characters, like Pixar or somehting. But I will watch it as I am a Star Wars fan!

Gurges-Ahter
08-06-2008, 10:45 PM
Got it. I would have preferred Pixar also, but I'm willing to give it a shot. For me the story matters much more than the animation style. I just hope the story is a good one. I know it ticks off a lot of EU fanatics, but I haven't invested as much time as some into exploring the EU arena.

Personally, I am looking forward to this film. Nothing beats Star Wars on the big screen! :shades2:

I have reservations about the animation style as it seems all that Lucas Animation is doing is taking Genndy Tartakovsky's style and putting into the 3 dimensional realm. While I am aware this is somewhat of a continuation of the previous TV series I would have preferred something more detailed.

Nevertheless like Gurges-Ahter, story is more important to me then nitpicking about the animation. Overall the animation looks alright. Unlike TKA-001, I like the idea of Anakin having an apprentice. I have a feeling she is not going to survive the war and it will undoubtedly add to Anakin's fall. My only fear with Asoka Tano is that I do not want her to be a "Mary Sue" type with little depth of character. While her presence in the story looks promising, Im still paranoid.

One thing I do not like about the film is cheesy names for planets and characters, for example, another alien Separatist general with a corny name (Loathsome). The other is the planet Christophsis. What happened to the more creative names? :xp:

Over all though, I am looking forward to the film because seems to have a good balance of drama and comedy not to mention action scenes like the films.

The Clone Wars time period just doesn't seem all that interesting to me anymore; it's territory that's already been explored. I don't have high hopes at all for this movie, but I'll watch it 'cause it's Star Wars. I just hope Lucas doesn't keep focusing on the Clone Wars the rest of his life.

Exactly my thoughts! Now a movie/TV series bridging Episode III and IV: that would kick some serious ass, whatever style.

As somebody who hasn't read a SW comic since Marvel had 'em in the 80's, I think this looks kinda cool. I'm looking forward to seeing it in 2 weeks (I'll be on vacation and will not set aside time for a movie while in Sedona).

I don't really know what the story is, or anything about it. But it's Star Wars and I'll be there.

On the contrary, I still haven't gotten enough of of the Clone Wars era. To me the Expanded Universe has just made a dent in the story of the three year conflict that changed the Galactic Republic into the Galactic Empire.

Still for those not that interested in this time frame of the sage, fear not, because as many fans know already, there is a live action TV series in the works set during the nineteen year time period between Episode III and Episode IV.

:xp: Hehe, I realize what you mean. It does seem weird since we saw so much of the Clone Wars that it seems old and done with. Let me explain what I mean... I see that the previous Clone Wars stories have only touched on the more important battles and events, especially those surrounding a core group of protagonists (Anakin, Obi-wan, Yoda, Mace Windu, Quinlan Vos, etc) when there are still countless stories that can be told about a Galaxy teeming with life and in conflict between the worlds that inhabit it.

While we have seen the Clone Wars before, I feel that now that the prequel films have all been completed, the writers and producers of Expanded Universe material no longer have to hold back in telling the fans what happened in a galaxy far, far away both during the Clone Wars, as well as in the time before "A New Hope".

They don't. But this is called "Too much of a good thing (Obi-Wan)." Way too much. They take the ONE non-movie thing they did, like, forever... and that's what they do some more. It's a shame. Hardcore fans like us are their biggest audience, but this is clearly going to appeal to people who AREN'T tired of watching the same time period over and over again.

Got it. I would have preferred Pixar also

Umm... you do know that Pixar started off as a division of Lucasfilm, right?

Lucasfilm's basically responsible for the CG-movie craze. And why would they want to use a separate company, when they already have their own, new division for CG-work?

Comparisons between the two are silly anyway - they're both good at what they do (animation) but take two different styles. The Clone Wars animation style is supposed to be reminiscent of the Gerry Anderson programs in the 60s (Thunderbirds, Stingray, Captain Scarlet) and I think they do a good job.

Exactly my thoughts! Now a movie/TV series bridging Episode III and IV: that would kick some serious ass, whatever style.

Then you should wait for the live-action TV program when that appears - it's set between III and IV.

Anyway, I saw the movie today. I wasn't very impressed.

Everybody goes to see Star Wars stuff, so I would think the hardcore fans only make up a small percentage of the people that go to see the movies. This movie is just a desperate attempt to make more money. Why don't they do the third Star Wars Trilogy as GL wanted in the first place?

I am a die hard Star Wars fan, so I suppose I'll see it...not expecting much though. Just my two cents. :)

Just watch it and judge it by it's own merits. I personally think the critics are full of it but that doesn't mean the film is perfect. There was one or two things I found annoying. Yet it's a cool animated feature. Remember... it's a feature length pilot episode. ;)

They've pretty much covered a lot of the Clone Wars in an ongoing series of trade paperbacks from 2003 to 2006, the last volume being "Endgame/the Purge".

I know about those, I was referring to a comic adaption of the clone wars movie that came out this year. I was wondering why they didnt make one specifically about the movie since theyve made comic book adaptions of all the others and plus they do have the new clone wars comics based on the new tv show. It just seemed odd.

09-20-2008, 03:55 AM
It does seem strange that Dark Horse hasn't already released some comics based specifically in the timeline of the recent movie, considering how the Clone Wars franchise was milked in every other aspect (toys, games, novels, etc.) Dark Horse might decide to make a companion comic to fit within the frame of the movie, that won't contradict the timeline of the original comics (I couldn't find anything when searching for "new Clone Wars comics".)

My problem is a) this is in fact NOT an uncharted era as the media keep saying, there is probably more EU set around this time than any other, and I enjoyed getting that stuff, it helped me through the "between EPII-III drought", why go back and re-hash it? Lucas' lack of care for, and knowledge of the EU, just Spurs the elitist "G canon only!!" Nazi's on and I hate that. B) The cool thing about EU is that you have so much cool stuff being made, but if you dont agree with it or like it, then that's cool, but with GL having a direct hand in it, it is now G canon, so it is up there with the films, unavoidable.

I think it was mildly entertaining, whether it be for me, kids or newcomers to the saga, But I think there are far more interesting uncharted era's that could of been explored, It was very commercialized and simplified, the so called nod's to EU and the OT were noticeable to a casual fan, I expect more from my Star Wars now.

Agent_Katarn00
09-21-2008, 11:33 AM
For some reason I don't like the whole clone wars setting.Geonosis and the clone part is the only thing that is cool in there.
Clone Wars is not even close to EU.
EU is jedi are Mara Jade,Galen Marek,Kyle Katarn,Jan Ors,Jerec,Yun,Maw,Desann,Dash Rendar,and Xizor plus others.Obi Wan and Anikan are just the movie guys.The media does not know the true power of the dark side :lol:

09-21-2008, 03:57 PM
EU is anything not in the movies, and only the beginning and the ending of the Clone Wars were in the movies, not everything in-between. So The Clone Wars movie, series, and the better cartoon are EU.

But GL's direct influence, and a big screen premier makes it in the same bracket as the movies, with the same kind of canon status and viewers. Whether or not it is EU is not my problem, it's effect on good EU is.

What bothers me is they only show an episode once a week and theyre so short, they feel kind of rushed and it just seems like they dont take the time to really make sure they dont mess up the continuity already established. Most of the vehicles and characters look like they came from later in the clone wars and not in the first year. With all the unexplored KOTOR and New Jedi Order timelines unexplored im surprised they dont want to make stories in those times instead of focusing so much on the clone wars and dark times. Besides most of the characters are from the movies so you know theyre going to survive so theres no suspense in wondering if your favorite character is going to die or not because they cant, unless GL wants to screw with the timeline by killing one or more of them off. Of course they did that in the other clone wars cartoon with Kkruhk so I wouldnt be surprised.

I liked the TV series too. :)

But the movie, to me, seemed like a ploy to get little kids into Star Wars. Because at the moment there was not really anything new (that was appropriate for younger kids, unless the parents do really care about content). Furthermore it was not as exciting as other Star Wars movies, at least in my opinion.

My take for the clone wars is that it is targeted towards the early teens. My guess the stories are more like the interpretation of the clone troopers are a part of their Mythology. A lot of the Jedi powers are cinematic, and the fighting is a bit over the top (Juggernauts taking out a Starship?) But then again, if these are the "Legends" then there is a bit of Author embellishment to make it entertaining

I could enjoy these clone wars episodes, but I wont, because every Interview they do (Within the SW community) There emphasizing the fact that this is not EU, that they are not constrained by what went before, George has a Different vision than the comics, this is what really happened etc. It really upsets me, because I loved the Clone Wars stuff done in the Comics, and I wonder how Long it's gonna be before George comes out and Says there was no History before Yoda's birth or something stupid. I'm waiting for what comes next tbh, EU has sustained Star Wars since the mid Eighties, between Prequels, in fact there are much better stories in the EU than what we got between 1999-2005 from GL, and although it's his Story, his franchise... Why allow something to be made, get money from it, pay people to organize a canon system, let people become fans, and then turn around and pretend you dont know/care about it and ret-conn stuff? It gets me down.

I think there has been enough TV **** on the Clone Wars. It has been done to death. Unless there is a game which is not about the show, then I am no going to focus on it. I would only be interested if there was an RC2 or BF 3 on the CW. Now that would fill my tastes. Clone Wars Shows is just a sad excuse to keep milking the prequel. Worst of all, the whole plot of the Clone wars is nothing new, just the same "Save the Galaxy from the evil sith!" as usual. I think Lucas should just let the Clone Wars show die, unless it will have a darker story in the future

You can't compare a game to a TV series...

Clone Wars Shows is just a sad excuse to keep milking the prequel.

Weren't the prequels a sad excuse to keep milking the OT?

Worst of all, the whole plot of the Clone wars is nothing new, just the same "Save the Galaxy from the evil sith!" as usual.

Isn't that the saga's plot too?

I think Lucas should just let the Clone Wars show die, unless it will have a darker story in the future

So, you prefer no Star Wars TV series rather than some... And isn't the series getting a darker story?

I never understood that logic of more darker, more cool. Why should Star Wars be dark? It didn't began that way, and we liked it the same. Does something need to be dark to be good?

Actually, a lot of people do dompare it to games. Look in the Kotor Section

Weren't the prequels a sad excuse to keep milking the OT?
No, back then it was new, but it seems EU and all the other stuff want to continue on the thing. I think they failed miserably on the prequel trilogy, especially with the whiny bitch Anakin. The few people I think really worked out in the prequel was Mace Windu, Yoda, Obi-Wan, Grievous, and of course Darth Maul.

Isn't that the saga's plot too?

sure it is, but the OT did everything much better. They were classic.

I never understood that logic of more darker, more cool. Why should Star Wars be dark? It didn't began that way, and we liked it the same. Does something need to be dark to be good?

not always, but it would be something new, something that would capture the attention of older audiences. I'm not saying the movies needed to be totally dark. But the CW series should have some episodes which the Seperatists actually win a few times, not the same ending.

I think in a way Season 2 is an improvement.

Also, I see the Clone War era as some kind of "Lucas Containment Zone" Basically its better for him to mess up things in this CW era than toying with the OT era and other well developed EU stuff.

I can't help but think this is spoken like someone who hasn't seen it... Clone Wars is doing a pretty good job of exploring the shades of grey in the battle, questioning the Jedi's uneasy position as soldiers. Also, the time period is being used as a backdrop for a variety of stories and relationships, not just battles between good vs. evil. It's expanding on the characters that weren't given a fair shot in the prequels, particularly Anakin who is getting the heroic representation that he deserved. It's quickly becoming leaps and bound better than the recent films Lucas put together. The show is even enhancing them with more developed characters.

Clone Wars is doing a pretty good job of exploring the shades of grey in the battle, questioning the Jedi's uneasy position as soldiers. Also, the time period is being used as a backdrop for a variety of stories and relationships, not just battles between good vs. evil. It's expanding on the characters that weren't given a fair shot in the prequels, particularly Anakin who is getting the heroic representation that he deserved. It's quickly becoming leaps and bound better than the recent films Lucas put together. The show is even enhancing them with more developed characters.

This.

I really like the Clone Wars, in a general aspect. But the problem is, there are too many plot holes and contradictions to, not just the originally trilogy, but the prequels as well.

I really wished they had made them 45 minute episodes instead of 21. It's really hard to get a desent story and plot in under that time. Even writers for the 45 minute episodes have a hard time, especially in the editing room.

One of the other things that bothers me, is there is a voice actor that does several characters, but in every character you can totally tell its the same. To me, that's bad casting. If an actor is going to do several characters, at least change the ton and accent of your voice.
