After a 5 year hiatus, Disney plans on bringing back the beloved Clone Wars series! More within...
“CLONE WARS” IS NOT PART OF THE “STAR WARS” UNIVERSE! HOW DARE YOU DESECRATE OUR SACRED SOIL SO!!!!!
Okay, this conversation did not actually happen. However, given how passionate a lot of long-time Star Wars fans are at the very mention of “the CW word” (not to be confused with the TV network of the same name), it might as well had happened. This, despite the fact I’ve gone to at least two or three major Sci-Fi/Comic conventions here in Dallas and see cosplayers dressed as Clone Troopers based off of information they could have only gotten from the series. I also had a friend from Memphis who one year cosplayed as Ahsoka Tano (Anakin’s first apprentice) at the Middle Tennessee Anime Convention in Nashville. With this being Star Wars month, I decided to set the record straight about this wonderful addition to the SW universe and why at some point every fan should watch it.
A couple nice things have hit today for Star Wars fans, in the form of the official 3D release poster for The Phantom Menace's return to the big screen, along with the first preview clip of Darth Maul's in the upcoming season of The Clone Wars!
I know it's not exactly movie news, but it's Star Wars related and I just can't seem to help myself. My favorite character in Star Wars is Darth Maul. There are several reasons for this: he's got a double bladed lightsaber (in my martial arts career, a bo staff was my main weapon), he's a martial artist (the actor is in real life, and the character is in Star Wars lore), and he's just plain bad ass looking. So when news came out that his brother would be making an appearance in this season of the Clone Wars, I was instantly excited. Now George Lucas and Lucasfilm are giving fans the chance to see him in action a full month before he makes his debut...and on the big screen.
