From Star Wars.com:
“First Theatrical Trailer for Animated STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS to Premiere Exclusively Across Multiple Turner Networks Thursday, May 8.
At 7:58 p.m. in all U.S. time zones, Cartoon Network, TNT, TBS, CNN, and Boomerang will debut an action-packed, two-minute preview of the animated adventure from creator George Lucas and Lucasfilm Animation. It marks the first time a theatrical trailer has received a simultaneous, cross-network airing on Turner Networks. The trailer debuts in theaters on Friday, May 9, along with the first poster for the movie.”
I have to admit, I’m very excited about The Clone Wars, both the upcoming movie & the animated series to follow. And that much more now that I’m knee deep in the Star Wars: Republic Commando series by Karen Traviss, which so successfully fleshes out the Clone Army and the many men who are far more than just faceless soldiers fighting for the Republic. I’m hoping that we get to see glimpses of that in this extended series, be it through the ARC’s, Commando’s, or the front line soldiers. That, and I’m really looking forward to seeing Obi-Wan, The Clones, Anakin & the gang again illustrated at the hands of what appear to be some very capable creators. From what I’ve seen it looks fantastic, which I only hope is confirmed further in tomorrow’s trailer.
