I don't know if Blu-Ray.com is an accurate site, but I noticed they had Star Wars the Clone Wars coming out December 8 in the UK and December 9 in the U.S.

Blu-ray.com - Star Wars - The Clone Wars (Blu-ray)

Amazon.UK has it up for pre-order also.

That doesn't surprise me, as the TV series is scheduled to start in November. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if an earlier date got announced to coincide with the series start.

^ The show starts on October 3 so it won't make it out by then. I figured The Clone Wars would come out close to the same time as the saga DVD re-release in November.

This is just wishful thinking, but wouldn't it be great if the DVD re-release happened to coincide with the Blu-ray Release of the whole saga?

I know people didn't care for the art.
I know people didn't care for the film.
However, I think HT'ers will go nuts for the 3D pop of this release!

If you look at the thread in the Movies section, it seems like a number of people who actually saw the movie liked it well enough. However, lots of people just based their opinion of the movie on a trailer or a review from CHUD.

I have always loved Star Wars but after the last 3 movies was ready for a break and was not looking forward to Clone Wars even a little. My 6 yr. old son insisted I take him him to see it and never let up. I was very surprised at how much I liked it and will happily buy the BluRay! Posted Image

Count me as one who found the film a pleasant diversion. Would have loved to see it in digital projection, but no such luck. I actually liked the art.

Me too. Sure they were a couple of things I disliked,
the Jabba the Hutt's son McGuffin and Ziro the Hutt in particular
, but there were actually less things I disliked about 'Clone Wars' than the prequels. For one thing, the 'acting' is better. Posted Image
Universal Blu-ray Discs I will not be buying while they're offered only as Blu-ray + DVD 'flipper' discs:

The Jackal
, Out of Africa, and Traffic.

By posting "people" I didn't say "everyone".
"People" doesn't mean every human being on the planet! ;-)
However, I'm glad 'people' (p.i.) took it that way & show a little luv for this flick.
I myself, was entertained.

I still say even tho this was not a huge hit at the box office (55 mil*); it will do well on HDM.

Bring on more 3D CGI!!! :-)

I thought this was supposed to be the first 3 episodes broadcast of the new Clone Wars series?

According to the synopsis for the first two episodes, it's not but I'd guess that the movie will eventually be run as four episodes at some point in time. The good news is that I doubt you'll need to see the movie to follow the episodes. About the only thing you may need to know is that Anakin now has a padawan.
