    I watched all 20 episodes yesterday...and then again today. They really are pretty damn cool. But is that it? Is that how it ends? Because if it is, man that's almost as bad as Empire Strikes Back!! I don't wanna ruin it for anyone but it's quite suspenseful.

    I agree Mike. I guess they had to stop, to not step on any Dark Horse toes. Example: How Asajj dies. I am glad they didn't kill her by falling off a cliff.

    Aslo, Durge's fate. I loved the series and maybe they'll do it again for the time between EP3 and 4

    One can only wish!

    I was kinda wondering what happened to Durge too. It was kinda like a T2 moment at the end of that episode. Hmmmmmm....

    Rumors say there will be a tv show taking place in between Ep 3 & Ep 4, and it will show why Vader is so feared. Hmmm....I hope the rumors are true.

    I can't wait for the series to come out on DVD. I saw most of the episodes on TV but would be cool to watch the whole thing thru. I saw the Mace Windu episode at the convention. I was just standing there giggling. haha

    Oh man I was standing at the entrance working the door and I was watching all the episodes without sound. But they were just so damn cool that I went over afterwards and bought the DVD. Completely worth it too.

    Just a quick note that Lucasfilm is abuzz with the notion of more "Clone Wars", so cross your fingers! :)

    Could someone 'splain to me how Fisto's saber can work underwater, though? :)

    I never got around to completing the season (watching them all) because i was so mad that you had to wait an entire week for like 10 minutes of heaven. But man it was still awesome

    See I was the same way. I could never remember when the hell they were on. But when I was at EFF and I saw the entire collection on DVD, I bought it up. Now I watch it at least twice a week.

    Mike,
    Bring the DVD to OJ's- maybe we could pop it in.

    According to the commentary on that episode, the lightsaber is so powerful that it is constantly boiling the water around it. Hence all the bubbles we see around it.

    It's official, folks...unless it turns out to be a crazy rumor...

    "...20 new Clone Wars episodes are signed for and will debut in the Spring of 2005, just prior to the release of Episode III. We would speculate that the animators will get to see the final movie at a screening shortly and develop the plot closely tied to the new movie. We're also hearing that a Clone Wars DVD release is a pending announcement, though we're not sure if both "seasons" will be included or first only."

    Of course, I've already got DVD copies of the episodes...but a THX sound mix couldn't hurt, no? :)

    *I doubt 20 episodes though, they have less than a year..*

    Take into account that you're talking 5 min. episodes a pop, and it becomes more plausible.

    Besides, they may even be plotting it as we speak!

    Anyone care to tell us what questions from the previous episodes of the "Clone Wars" series you feel need to be answered?

    Some of the more high-profile ones may be purposely left in the dark until Ep. III's release, but I'd like to see more of Fisto, perhaps a 5 min. skirmish dedicated to Aayla Secura, or maybe one with the both of them since they seem to have an, um, attachment... ;)

    I'd like to see more of Fisto in Ep. III too, in all honesty...hearing AidsWalk staffers call out "alien!" to RJ Armbruster made me wanna holler back "FISTO!!" to those brainless heathens... :)

    Besides...ya gotta love his now-trademark grin.

    Maybe we can convince them to hire RJ to play Fisto's voice, eh? ;)

    The Clone Wars Micro-Series Continues!
    June 08, 2004

    Following the immense success of the first 20 chapters of the animated Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Cartoon Network will continue the saga with five new expanded chapters beginning March 21, 2005. Once again helmed by Genndy Tartakovsky, Star Wars: Clone Wars continues where Chapter 20 left off, but in a new format. Whereas previous installments were just three minutes long, each new chapter will be 12 minutes, promising viewers four times the excitement, adventures and intrigue as they lead into the long-awaited finale to the saga, Star Wars: Episode III.

    Tartakovsky, the talent behind the critically acclaimed Samurai Jack and Dexter's Laboratory, will return as director, co-screenwriter and executive producer of the new Star Wars: Clone Wars animated mini-series. Cartoon Network will air the new chapters from March 21 to March 25 with limited commercial interruptions. These new installments are planned to appear online to members of Hyperspace: The Official Star Wars Fan Club.

    The first twenty chapters -- still available for download to Hyperspace members -- featured such fabled characters as Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Padmé Amidala, Mace Windu and Anakin Skywalker in the ongoing battle of the Army of the Republic against a vast uprising spearheaded by the Separatists and their massive droid armies. Chapter 20 introduced viewers to General Grievous, military leader of the Separatist armies, and a major character in next year's Star Wars: Episode III. The new mini-series will include an expanded role for Grievous.

    "We were really impressed with the quality of the animation and the storytelling abilities that Cartoon Network and Genndy brought to the first Star Wars: Clone Wars episodes, and clearly viewers were, too, because the feedback we received about the micro-series was fantastic," said Howard Roffman, President of Lucas Licensing. "This new mini-series will bring even more depth and excitement to the story of the Clone Wars and will lead viewers right into the adventures of Star Wars: Episode III."

    "It is a tremendous honor for Cartoon Network to have been selected by Lucasfilm to produce these new Star Wars stories, because the Star Wars saga is one of the most popular and successful entertainment properties in the world," said Jim Samples, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Cartoon Network Worldwide. "Genndy thoroughly enjoyed the collaborative relationship we built with Lucasfilm during the production of the first Clone Wars episodes, and is terribly excited now to be entrusted with furthering the storyline and working with such popular and enduring characters. This will truly be a 'must-see' for Star Wars fans and animation lovers."
