    If CW does go ahead, I hope the animation will be like that of X-Men: Evolution.

    Yes, I agree because Evolution has a bigger budget: The style is better and the animation is far superior. If they can add the feel of Samurai Jack then Clone Wars will be something special.

    I stopped watching SG:Infinity after only seeing three episodes...its just not as intersting as I first thought. I do like the design and overall look but it just seems too Expanded from the movie and tv series to me...

    You guys are excited? I'm dreading this, and here's why.

    See, I wasn't alive yet during the failures of tbe Holiday Special or the Ewoks and Droids cartoons (those sucked, right? If not, tell me.) I actually have seen the Ewok Adventures movie, and it's horrible. So what would lead me to beleive this would be anything but a failure? I only know Star Wars on a screen as the movies.

    I dunno, if they go through with it, it better not suck. Just my opinion.

    Well, Lucas knows the anticipation of The Clone Wars was something fans have wanted to see since Mark Hamill/Luke first mentioned it. As a 6-year old in 77 it sure sounded cool to me back then.(Mom, Dad...what's a clone?) I read that Lucas was really proud of what ILM did for AOTC finale: "Now THIS is the Clone Wars!"

    Samurai Jack is awesome so an animated series in that caliber for Star Wars is very promising. Droids, Ewoks, Chewie's Holiday Special, Muppets, etc , forget all that stuff.

    If the project is scrapped entirely, well there's always the Dark Horse comic books and upcoming books.

    Oh God please don't let it look like Samurai Jack. That look would be just awful for a Star Wars series. I really hate animated characters that looks like a little kid cut it out of cardboard. No offense to any who like that style though.

    I personally hope this doesnt happen,although it may be cool for us fans.Its only going to make Star Wars more disrepectfull towards the film industry and general public,gonna make Star Wars even more of a kids movie and overcommercialized franchise.

    Upon hearing and seeing(in the dvd extras) the creative contributions ILM made to the movie, aside from the FX, I am really looking forward to this project.



    ILM was partly responsible for selecting the look of Dexter Jettster out of a host of other alternatives, the zoom and shaky shots during the clone battle, the mini dialogue and force demonstration before the Yoda/Dooku saber fight.

    If we can't read, I doubt that link you posted will help any.

    :p

    Anyway, this thread is way too Star Wars related for this forum. If the project is greenlighted (as is a possibility - if you read all the way to the end of that last provided link) then I'll consider reopening this to discuss the ILM involvement of the series.

    Reopening this thread on a trial basis. I'm still uncomfortable that it's undoubtably a "Star Wars" topic. However we do allow certain Star Wars discussion when it centres on the ILM or Skywalker sound involvement etc.

    I'm willing to give this thread another go, so long as it centres on the non-Star Wars plot aspects, such as production values, animation techniques etc.

    I must say I almost threw up when I saw this but then when I really looked at it some more I thought the look of it was tolerable. I was hoping for a cgi series or something that looks better but what are ya gonna do?
