    Replace Ventress with Anakin and Dooku with Palpatine and you have the basic layout of Episode 3.

    I really like the cartoon. It's something new, it's fun, it's well-done thus far, and it fills the gap for a bit.
    It's all good to me.

    it would be cool if they touched on Obi Wan befriending his clone troopers while they are in battle. so far the clone troopers are almost as mindless as the droids.

    then again, it is only two chapters in.

    Why not we first saw Boba Fett as a cartoon.

    Yes, but Lucas was directly involved with that EVIL holliday special. He has little to nothing to do with the CLone War cartoon.

    Agreed. Anything that feeds our Star Wars mania can be only a good thing.

    But three minutes per episode? Three?

    Not enough.

    This is exactly right.

    It's a form of torture, I believe.

    Not that I'm complaining ...

    We griped about this for months and we're all griped out as far as the length of the shorts go.

    Have only watched the 1st one, and thanks Sape for making a thread in here about it.

    It shows how much the Emperor is boosting Anakin's ego which bodes well with Episode 3. Anakin is only hearing nice things about himself from the Emperor, praise for this and praise for that. When in times of need, he will go to the person who has not held him back but praised him and raised him above others as the chosen one. This is why I think he joins Palpatine and calls him his friend. He is thinking the others are jealous (as mentioned in AOTC).

    Got a crappy CPU so, quicktime doesnt run that fast on it (even in small size) but will be waiting for the other eps when they hit the UK. Its a pity Hyperspace doesnt let you download them, so you can convert them into MPEG and watch as VCD's. But Lucasfilm wouldnt allow that would they. :(

    I only saw the first 2 chapters. Not much.

    The new Jedi starfighters might be in Ep3 though.

    Just to be a bummer, as I think this NEEDS be said often in here --

    The chat at the OS revelaed the makers NEVER read the script did NOT base designs off Ep3 as they saw NONE and know as much as WE DO.

    Hence, there are NO clues to Ep3 from this series, other than Grievous, which I assume they told them to insert.

    If you dont believe me, read the chat. They know NOTHING.

    No. They said the cartoons would lead right into Ep3.

    GL should take a few tips from these guys making the cartoon, the cartoon seems more in the spirit of the OT than the new movies.

    I gotta love having Quicktime Pro. I have downloaded the first two parts of the Clone War Series and I have taken the two parts and combined them into one file. And will add the other parts to it as well when they are released and then I can just watch them as one film.

    Well, yeah, GRILLED SARLAAC they of course they lead into it, but it has NO bearing on the movie.

    They said in the chat they did NOT see the script or ANY designs for Ep3.

    This series has NO bearing on Ep3 other than it leads into it, but it wont have ANY hints of what is to come, as AGAIN, they DID NOT see the script or ANY designs for Ep3. It's all in the chat.

    Damn straight I watched the second chapter with awe as It seemed more like the star wars feeling of the OT

    then I slipped on the puddle of drool.

    way to go Genndy!! He sees Star wars as I do.
