I think Lucas will always be remembered and famous for the original Star Wars trilogy and Indiana Jones. The second trilogy was… alright. Episode III was pretty good. I kind of liked the new Indiana Jones movie. That said, anyone over the age of nine who goes to see the new Star Wars movie had better have all the legal documents affirming their diminished mental capacity. I was kind of mad at Lucas for Jar-Jar Binks, but an animated film? With different voice actors? And cartoony Pixar-ish animation? ??? It sounds like Lucas has rubbed the Star Wars Stamen waaaaaay too long, and I hope no one goes to see the resulting excrement known as Clone Wars. Sorry for the visual.
it never should have been shown in theater. Simply for the fact that it needs to be taken as a ‘chronicle’…a show part of a tv-serie. it ain’t a movie.
The scenario is crap, the dialogues are cheesy. But overall, for a tv-show, the visual were excellent. Definitly the best looking animated serie on tv. The ‘painted like’ textures were nice looking (even if some said they looked low-res…). Most of the characters look great, except Palpatine who got a bit too much caricaturised…
But yeah, it’s a ‘kid’ show. But if watched with a grain of salt (and taking it as a ‘chronicle’ instead of a full feature film), it’s entertainment.
but I wouldn’t say it’s worth 10$ to see it on the big screen…wait till it’s on air along with the other episodes.
There are some movies to be made as CGI animations, and Star Wars is definately not one of them… maybe even the kids (their target audience I hope) will look at what a poor change Lucas brought to this once great franchise.
