I haven’t been following the Star Wars universe that much, but I could have sworn Clone Wars wasn’t new.
Well, apparently there’s a Star Wars: Clone Wars, The Clone Wars, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The first was a web series that was also shown on Cartoon Network. The last is a cartoon movie that’s showing a few days from now ( 15 Aug 2008 ) and will ultimately launch a tv series that will be shown (still) on Cartoon Network and on TNT.
I’m not a Star Wars fanatic so my head’s gone all woozy on all the clone wars I’m seeing, but I still salute George Lucas for his brilliance. I haven’t gotten myself a copy of the web series, but maybe after watching that and watching the movie I’ll be up to speed on all things Star Wars. But having seen all the movies and the clone wars being set prior to Star Wars: Episode III – The Revenge of the Sith, I should know all this, right?
