Ooh, rebroadcast on TNT. That means it will be available in HD. TNT has the worst HD channel available, but their typical aspect ratio problems will probably be avoided if Lucasfilm is providing the broadcast material.

Big slap in the face to Fox that Warner is distributing the movie. This will be the first Star Wars project in 31 years that isn't distributed by Fox. Hopefully Warner's involvement will bring a freshness.

Apparently Fox Television wasn't interested in airing the follow-up series. Cartoon Network bought the first run rights to the series, so its parent company TimeWarner gets the theatrical rights to the feature.

Is this an actual theatrical release or just a special one-night screening of the new TV show's pilot episode on the big screen like they did with Hi-Def Star Trek?

Hmm... sounds interesting but I wonder whatever happened to all those experimental, non-Star Wars-related projects George Lucas said he was going to be turning his attention to after the series wrapped up in 2005? Or, by non-Star Wars, was he referring to Indiana Jones? Even though Lucas has called Star Wars a 30-year detour in his career, he doesn't seem to be in any hurry to get back on his proverbial main road.

He's not, since this will all be followed by a 100 episode live-action television series, directed at times by Lucas. If that plan is still on tap, of course.

Gee only 8 replies? Could we be in the early stages of a Star Wars burn out? (one can only hope Posted Image ). Seriously, where did everyone go?

I'd chalk it up to that the only real news is that it's playing in theaters. Almost anyone interested has probably known that the show was coming for months.

I'm just happy that it isn't the usual "i hate u, lUca$" bitch and moan fest. Posted Image

It hasn't been added to my cable service yet, so I didn't know. I need to try to get them to add it. It'd be better than TNTHD.

Just read an article over at MTV.com stating Samuel L. Jackson would like to voice Mace Windu for the Clone Wars cartoon and Lucas is very keen on the idea. That would be awesome. Posted Image

I am curious if that is Frank Oz doing Yoda's voice?

I'm wondering the same thing. All Lucas has saying for years is that SW has taken him on a 30yr detour of his career and that after the release of ROTS, he would take a break and start working on his experimental films and get back to his THX-1138 / Graffiti days. He hasn't done that and he just can't seem to get SW out of his system. We have the new Clone Wars series coming AND a live action TV show.

I love SW as much as anyone and will go see this film, but, I'm more interested in his much talked about post-SW career, which sadly by the looks of it now, might not see the light of day, at least not for years now.

I hadn't heard that. The only original voices I heard was Anthony Daniels and the the guy who voice Grevious. I hope its true. With the money Lucas has made on SW and what will be made on this show. I really thought more of the original actors (Jackson, Smits, Oz, etc) should be hired to reprise their characters.

Back to Jackson for a minute. If I remember correctly Mace was created for him by Lucas since he was a fan.
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Matthew Wood voiced Grevious in the film. He's a sound editor with Skywalker Sound. I don't know if it will be him or the guy who voiced Grevious in the first CW series. I wouldn't expect Hayden, Ewan and Natalie to do any voice work for this, especially Ewan and Natalie.

As far as Windu, I believe he's always been there since the 70's. Lucas brought Jackson aboard because Sam expressed to the media how he would like to be a part of the PT. This was when the PT was in the preproduction stages and TPM was in the script process.
