New CG Star Wars movie due in August

While reporting last week on new animated movies that were due out this summer, I missed the new “Star Wars: The Clone War” movie that Lucas Film is releasing to theaters on August 15th. The computer generated movie is set between episodes II and III of the live action movies. The movie is the initial push of the animated Star Wars story telling – a TV series of the same name will follow in the fall.

An even more recent trailer can bee seen on StarWars.com

I was very happy to see the preview for this film the other day in the theater. Back when the Clone Wars cartoons were on Cartoon Network I had thought, why wasn’t THIS a feature film.

I’ll admit, that preview looks pretty cool. But what makes it even better is having a John Williams score behind it.

I bet it wouldn’t look as good if it had “Spanish Flea” from Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, playing behind it.

I heard about this but I wasn’t too interested until I saw the trailer. I’m impressed.

At first I thought this was just an animated version of “attack of the clones” but this is different right? it’s set between two episodes?

Nevermind, I just answered my own question.
