Full Trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars!
I never would've imagined I'd be watching another Star Wars movie in theaters after Episode III, but alas, here we are again. The first full trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars has hit and it's actually pretty damn entertaining. When you combine a geek's love for Star Wars with some pretty slick CGI animation and the opportunity to see it on the glorious big screen, there is no way that most geeks won't be in love with this. Even I'm all for it, already anticipating the opening day in August. This new trailer looks incredible - lots of great action scenes and story and everything. The addition of Anakin's female padawan Ahsoka was one of the best moves anyone has made in recent years. Now I really can't wait for this to arrive! Star Wars is back baby!
Watch the trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars:

On the front lines of an intergalactic struggle between good and evil, fans young and old will join such favorite characters as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Padmé Amidala, along with brand-new heroes like Anakin's padawan learner, Ahsoka. Sinister villains -- led by Palpatine, Count Dooku and General Grievous -- are poised to rule the galaxy. Stakes are high, and the fate of the Star Wars universe rests in the hands of the daring Jedi Knights. Their exploits lead to the action-packed battles and astonishing new revelations that fill Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars is being directed by Dave Filoni, of "Avatar: The Last Airbender", with a story by George Lucas himself. The two hour animated movie will kick off a new TV series after debuting in theaters. Star Wars: The Clone Wars will play in movie theaters this summer starting on August 15th. If you're a true Star Wars geek I know I'll see you there! The poster for the film is featured below.

looks like a video game...... ill pass

Very cool! I'm looking forward to this one. The cartoons were really good.

Your mom looks like a video game! Totally seeing this....

The CG-Character is a WAY better actor than Hayden Christensen. I like the character & set designs- especially the other alien-Jedis & Sith. This looks better to me than the other prequels did. My only problem is that Jabba is way-over-the-top Cartoony. It looks to an untrainted eye like he and Yoda are the same race, and related somehow. His eyes in the original were SO perfect, so why mess w/ perfection? I'll say I trust the Avatar the air bender guy to direct, b/c I've seen his show and it easily matches Star Wars' level of imagination. I'll watch this w/ my nephew. Anything else would be uncivilized...

And this sure as hell beats "AT-TACK OF THE CLOOOOONNESS"! (Impossible to say that w/out sounding like some 50's Sci-Fi Horror Trailer)
Djo Fortunado on May 9, 2008
Is the storyline any different from the Clone Wars miniseries?
Colin Dean on May 9, 2008
This looks better than all of the movies.
Ian Kazimer on May 9, 2008
Looks just like the second two prequels. Except Anakin is more expressive
Andrew Wickliffe on May 9, 2008
I'm not a huge fan of the "Lego" look the characters have. But I imagine I'd get used to it about 5 minutes or so into the movie. This looks action-packed and will hopefully have a worthwhile storyline to it. August 15th, I'm there. I'm so there.
kevjohn on May 9, 2008
a cameo of Grand Admiral Thrawn or Jorus C'baoth would make this my geek wet dream.
The Delightful Deviant on May 9, 2008
Ok i have been a star wars fan since The first star wars, ive seen empire strikes back at the theatre back in 77. This looks like it may be action packed and i love cartoons but they drew them so lazy. I mean come on If there gonna spend the money do it right. And the theatre ticket prices aint cheap. I dont think i will be going to watch this. it will be on dvd in like a month. Sorry guys im a fanboy just not on this one.
THERBLIG on May 9, 2008
I love the StarWars series. I'll take anything that will bring it back--even wooden acting! I'll geek out even for this cartoon just to revisit that world again. Bring it!!!
cyn on May 9, 2008
I hate stupid people who think that just because it's animated means its for kids, may I remind you that 5 of the 6 star wars movies were rated PG? May I also remind you that most everyone who started loving Star Wars started loving it when they were a kid? Also, I don't know what movie theater you go to, but at mine they cost anywhere between $8 and $12, and I live near NYC and see a lot of movies at the big theaters in NYC.
Kail on May 9, 2008
HELL YA ILL BE THERE
Iron Man Fan on May 9, 2008
Okay I hope this does well there is so much potential. It would've been cool if they did it in Beowulf level graphics. The graphics for the cinematic scenes in Warcraft 3 RoC and FT would've been cool too, but doesn't matter I still love Star Wars and i'll be there. 🙂
silver on May 9, 2008
Looks like a cartoon. Oh wait, it is! No chance that I would waste $20 on this. I really dig the first 6 films & would love to see more adult themed live action Star Wars.
Sinner on May 9, 2008
That's it! Perfect analogy kevjohn. I don't care for the "Lego" animation either. However, I did love Lego's...about 20 years ago.
Sinner on May 9, 2008
Looks cool. I hope it actually has a story though.
Puke on May 9, 2008
Damn. Just as I thought I was getting ready to boycott the clone wars, they had to go and make another geek out electrifying trailer. I haven't been this excited since I was 12 years old and the teaser trailer for Episode I came out of nowhere, and this was while I was still recovering from the release of the special edition in '97. COUNT 'dooku' ME IN, MOTHERFUCKERS! Ahem..sorry 'bout that.
Garrett.king on May 9, 2008
I'm definitely going to see this. I love all Star wars. I was 15 when Star Wars came to theaters in 1977. To the person who said they saw Empire Strikes Back in 77. Sorry, you didn't because it wasn't out yet. Either you're a fan or you're not. If you are you'll be in the theater on August 15th like me. Star wars is forever. Star Wars: Episode IV- A New Hope (1977) Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)
Mike Avallone on May 9, 2008
I didn't see Padmé in the trailer... mmm.
BlueScreenError on May 9, 2008
Kail, I spend $20+ b/c I don't go to the movies alone like you do. Also, nobody said animated films are only for kids. I am saying that some of us do not like cheap looking animation. Hence, "Lego" animation. Calm down & take your meds.
Sinner on May 9, 2008
jesus already been 3 years since ROTS came out? man time flies.. and hellz yea day 1 viewing of this, and I can't wait for the series that'll continue after the movie... woot woot
Eric on May 9, 2008
There better not be any music or song sequences like Disney movies. Why do they ALWAYS ruin it by adding a female "TOUGHIE". That's how they killed Terminator 3 as well. And great, a female Sith as well. This has STUPID written all over it. Stick to the male badasses!
AK on May 10, 2008
Holy mother of GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That looks awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Lee on May 10, 2008
It would be worth noting that this was made for television first and was then decided to be a movie, so for a television show this animation is nothing short of amazing.
EaterofFood on May 10, 2008
Why does everybody seem like they despise the prequels? I love the first series of course you can't not love them, but you everyone saw 4, 5, and 6 you all pondered HOW DID THIS HAPPEN WAS THE EMPIRE ALWAYS IN CONTROL? WHY IS VADER SO EVIL? Thats why the prequels were made so we could understand it all. Now I'm liked the prequels they were good, and Lucas did a good job. You can't say you hated them because you saw them in Theaters and probably bought them on DVD, and guess what you will probably see this, and most definitely say you hate when in your head you love it. So don't bitch and enjoy. 😛
Xerxex on May 10, 2008
Sinner, you're definitely not seeing it with any girls because you use the internet. You've been told. And if you're seeing it with friends, then they're using you for your mad money. Told again.
Kail on May 10, 2008
Just watched it again to see if I missed something b/c I'm a Star Wars fan & I want to like this. Nope, I'm still not impressed w' animation meant for TV. The characters use way to much hair gel, don't ya think? Nothing but respect to the true Dark Siders out there & I hope those that go & support this film really enjoy it. Wish I could be there but my fiance doesn't care for it either. Maybe I could take Kails Mom with me. Sorry, I almost forgot. I've been told. FIN.
Sinner on May 10, 2008
Will go watch it but think it should have been CG........................
SHANE D on May 10, 2008
Guys, guys, guys! You're totally overlooking the big question here... How the fuck do you kidnap a Hutt? You're not throwing him into a knapsack you throw over your shoulder, that's for sure!
Tom Brazelton on May 10, 2008
C'mon, Lucas! It's time to roll out that Star Wars Holiday Special DVD 🙂
avoidz on May 11, 2008
Yoda sounded stupid, not wise....it was distracting. But other than that it looked awesome!
Laura on May 11, 2008
Maybe this will lead to turning some of the books into animated moves, image The Thrawn trilogy made into 3 movies like this!!!!!
James on May 12, 2008
godamnit people i may not be much a film critic, but i am much a starwars fanatic, and this preview excites me but also pisses me off much much more..... why cant they say f*ck the clone wars, they already destroyed it, and make a star wars cgi based on the future of the origional 3 films, man oh man they have so much content they could use from the books, it would be HUGE!!! imagine an elderly luke skywalker with the power and control far surpassing yoda trying to rebuild the old jedi ways while facing an invasion of a new alien race from another galaxy with a religion that that has them hellbent on making this galxy theirs and even more hellbent on the jedi being there worthy opponents...thats what i want, prequels are gay and unessecary, i liked when the past was more a mystery.
dave on May 12, 2008
actually i changed my mind, screw the cgi and make it animated, maybe even japan-anime
dave on May 12, 2008
It does look just like the animated series. Why not just do Star Wars 1 in cgi? Or maybe that wookie Christmas special. I don't get it.
Dallas on May 18, 2008
Sweet!! Now that's a summer movie!! Where do I put down my money?
paul on May 26, 2008
saw the poster in the theaters before going yo inidana jones, and gotta tell you i was excited for like 5 seconds, then got bored, then i saw the trailer and got embarrassed, not exatly a first date movie if you know what i mean.
AMA on Jun 1, 2008
thank you xerxes. guys, don't bitch and enjoy the wonderful world that has become a part of our national culture. star wars is star wars. go for the damned spectacle of it all, because if george lucas can deliver on anything nowadays, it's spectacle. 😉
Reza on Jun 4, 2008
sorry, should have said national movie culture. 😀
Reza on Jun 4, 2008
I'm officially over Star Wars. Not excited about this AT ALL. bleh. and the CG looks so amateurish. Embarrassing really to make a feature out of this, looks more like Saturday morning.
Ryan on Jun 18, 2008
yoda looks like a turtle ...
ej on Aug 3, 2008

Bobby Car on Dec 23, 2009
