    Hey I hear that the Clone Wars shorts are gonna be made into a 60 minute DVD and was just wondering what special features would you like?

    my opinion is that they should make the clone wars cartoons part of the special features on the ep.3 DVD.

    it would make a whole lot more sense.

    It'll probably be a separate DVD, simply because they'll be able to make more money off of it that way. Also, the special features on the DVD usually aren't 60 minutes long (similar to how the R2 Mockumentary was sold separately from the AOTC DVD).

    I figured a DVD would be coming, that is why I have no plans what-so-ever to attempt to tune in to the Cartoon Network in between programming to catch these short installments. I would much rather view it in one 60 minute swoop, for better or for worse! [face_plain]

    Not to question your motives or anything but it isn't really that big a deal. They are going to be on at specific times and there is a schedual. I don't see it as anymore difficult than tuning into any other show.

    Well, there is a big chance that it will come on when I am either in bed or at work, so I would have to record it. That is a lot of work for 3 minutes, but that is just me and certainly doesn't reflect other opinions! ;)

    I think they should have a "making of" documentary, where they discuss the animation, production, etc. of the series.

    Yup, pretty much everything StormChewieJedi mentioned I'd like to see :)
    Hopefully a bit more than what were given in the Samurai Jack pilot DVD.

    Edit: Oh yeah, maybe something on the Dark Horse Comics Clone Wars series to tie it in?

    Well, if they were to talk about the origins of the characters in any DVD supplements about the cartoon series for Ventress and Durge, they'd have to at least mention the DH comics, since DH created both characters.

    I had expected that stuff to be on the Ep-III disc. I would think that if they did make a Clone Wars DVD it would just be some sort of exclusive like they did with the R2 thing.

    I just hope the DVD will also be released with code area 2 (I couldn't get the R2D2 mockumentary because it was zone 1 only).

    I sure do HOPE it comes out on DVD. My guess is that it WILL, and it will probably come out just prior to Episode III.

    I think we'll be ripped off with a CW dvd. $20 plus for 40-45 mins. of programming.

    What they should do is put them on the EIII main disc as an 'easter egg' and have a little 5 minute doco as an easter egg on disc 2 but they won't. If they try and make us pay for them I'm going to have a friend burn them on dvd off the internet for me.

    Why don't you wait until the DVD is released, so you can check the pricing before you start to complain? The AOTC DVD was $10 when it first came out at Toys R Us, and the R2D2 Mockumentary DVD was around $5 at Best Buy. So, there really is no valid proof behind the $20 figure that you gave. I'd suggest waiting to see what the price actually is before you get bent out of shape about it.

    I don't think there's any doubt the series will be a DVD release. It would also serve as a nice vehicle for an Ep. 3 trailer, depending on the timing of the DVD release.

    I don't see a 60-minute feature with a couple of bonus features being priced higher than $14.99. Lucas has never cheated us on his DVD releases, and he won't with this one either.

    I'm not even really that interested in the series (partially because of the character design and the fact it's by the SAMURAI JACK team), but I'd rather wait for DVD and watch it all at one time time than watch it in 3-minute snippets.

    I think it would be in LFL's best interest to put this stuff and some of the comic ties on the Ep-III disc. That way they might pull in some more EU intrest since thats all there is going to be.

    My guess is that it will, and I think it should. It needs to be available before EpIII if it's going to serve a purpose of filling in the gaps.

    Lucas has always done well at keeping the Star Wars name in the public eye to one extent or another. Here's an overview of the past few years:

    1991-95: novels start to come out

    1995: the new series of action figures are launched and is still going strong today

    1996: Shadows of the Empire project hits

    1997: Special Editions of the OT.

    1998: Behind the Magic CD-ROM (weak I know, but still...)

    1999: TPM

    2000: Video release of TPM

    2001: DVD release of TPM

    2002: AOTC and its subsequent DVD release

    2003: Clone Wars project

    Lucas has always had excellent marketing people behind him, and I am sure they will do their best to keep all Star Wars-related releases complementing Ep. 3's eventual release.

    Yeah! He kept all his cheating and swindling to the VHS re-re-re-releases.

    YJ is right.

    I have the 1997 SE VHS releases. I somehow didn't feel the need to get the VHS set that came out in 2000.

    I don't think I'm missing much ;)

    I would like an Episode III trailer (a really really good one). Also, whoever was saying that the times would likely be inconveniant, I doubt that would be a problem. These things are aimed at kids, so they are going to be on at a time when they know kids will be watching, somewhere in the 7-ish area most likely. I don't know how late you work, though, so you may have a valid point.

    EDIT: Also, royalboy, the Clone Wars cartoons extend into 2004, so you could add that, too.
