Star Wars: The Clone Wars In Theaters and on Television in 2008
February 12, 2008

A new era of Star Wars entertainment begins in 2008 when Star Wars: The Clone Wars, from creator George Lucas, premieres as an all-new feature film in August, followed by the television series debut in the fall, in a partnership announced today between Lucasfilm Ltd., Warner Bros. Pictures and Turner Broadcasting System Inc.

Produced by Lucasfilm Animation, Star Wars: The Clone Wars takes audiences on incredible new Star Wars adventures, combining the legendary storytelling of Lucasfilm with an eye-popping, signature animation style. Star Wars: The Clone Wars will open in North American theaters Friday, August 15. International release dates will be announced soon.

"I felt there were a lot more Star Wars stories left to tell," said George Lucas, executive producer of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. "I was eager to start telling some of them through animation and, at the same time, push the art of animation forward."
The theatrical debut of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is only the beginning of all-new Star Wars adventures that continue in the fall when the long-awaited television series premieres on Cartoon Network, followed by airings on TNT. Details regarding international broadcasts will be announced shortly. Star Wars: The Clone Wars showcases an entirely new look and feel to the galaxy far, far away -- combining the expansive scope of the Star Wars Saga with state-of-the-art computer-generated animation. Each week, viewers will see a thrilling, 30-minute "mini-movie" created by the talented artists at Lucasfilm Animation.

On the front lines of an intergalactic struggle between good and evil, fans young and old will join such favorite characters as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Padmé Amidala, along with brand-new heroes like Anakin's padawan learner, Ahsoka. Sinister villains -- led by Darth Sidious, Count Dooku and General Grievous -- are poised to rule the galaxy. Stakes are high, and the fate of the Star Wars universe rests in the hands of the daring Jedi Knights. Their exploits lead to the action-packed battles and astonishing new revelations that fill Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

"Warner Bros. and Turner are uniquely positioned to deliver on the enormous potential of The Clone Wars because together they offer a world-class opportunity: the theatrical and home-video distribution of Warner Bros. and the broad reach of the Turner Networks," said Micheline Chau, President and Chief Operating Officer of Lucasfilm Ltd. "This terrific combination hits the key demographic groups, ranging from kids to adults, that make up the Star Wars audience.

Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution, added, "This is a breakthrough project -- returning Star Wars to the big screen in a completely new way while beginning an exciting new chapter in George Lucas' legendary saga. We immediately felt that it would be a fantastic theatrical event and are thrilled to be bringing it to moviegoers."
"Nothing like this has ever been produced for television," said Stuart Snyder, President/COO Turner Animation,Young Adults & Kids Media. "For 30 years, Star Wars has shown that it appeals to a huge breadth of fans. The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network will be appointment television for everyone in the family. We're thrilled to be working with Lucasfilm again and very excited to be playing a role in bringing this remarkable adventure to viewers."With a new story each week, Star Wars: The Clone Wars continues the tradition of thrilling stories, astonishing visuals and extraordinary music that have always been the hallmarks of the Star Wars Saga.

Lucasfilm Animation, which is based in Marin County, Calif., with a studio in Singapore, has produced more than 30 all-new episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and production continues on even more exciting episodes.

The first in a planned series of special web-only documentaries that chronicle the development of Star Wars: The Clone Wars debuts online today, and can be found here.

It's CGI, and there was a TON of CGI in the last three movies they did. They already did about two hours of animated Clone Wars on Cartoon Network a few years ago and it was AWESOME. This series is going to be longer than all of the movies combined and will show some of the best characters no one knows about unless they read comics. Kit Fisto, Quinlan Vos, Durge, Assajj Ventress, Plo Koon and of course LOTS of Mace Windu.

How exactly would they continue the clone wars? I mean, if you watched the Clone Wars series, it went from the episode 2 to the beginning of episode 3. One of the biggest OMG moments of episode 3 was the very beginning when you find they've started the movie from almost the very minute clone wars left off.

Absolutely not, and there is already proof to the contrary. They've already done this in a shorter format and it went over amazingly. This is the next logical step. Lucas is one of the CGI/special effects innovators so it really shouldn't be a surprise.

There are so many storylines that have not been touched and it would take far too long and cost far too much to do them in the movie format. With this, they are going to spend between 30-50 HOURS on one era of the Star Wars Universe. There are so many great characters to develop and follow, this is going to be great. So of the characters people will love:













Here are some clips from the original, it is AWESOME:

I have to say, I'm looking forward to this. Also, I don;t know if any of you have read any of the expanded universe books, but it sucks that Chewbacca died.

The whole Yuuhzan Vong series needs to be made into a movie... as does the current Legacy Of The Force storyline. I can't believe Mara Jade Skywalker got taken out either. She was badass...

The newer storylines are definately interesting, and alot darker than the older stuff. For instance, Han's depression and alchoholism after Chewbacca's death is a very human and realistic aspect to the story line. And that's the other thing. It's not like they're killing off minor characters here. Chewie and Mara Jade? Those are fairly major characters. Although I didn't think Jade died. I thought she was just infected with the virus, but the old school Jedi cured her(or at least slowed the virus down) with her tears ability. Did Jade end up dying anyway? Last I read, they were on the Jade Shadow, looking for Zonama Sekot.

EDIT: I didn't realize I had missed like two series of books. No wonder I didn't know she was dead. I need to catch up here.

I'd like to see some of the stuff about pre clone wars made into cartoons or movies, like the Great Schism, the Sith Wars, the Jedi Civil War, etc.
