Liam Neeson Returns To ‘Star Wars’ As Qui-Gon Jinn In ‘The Clone Wars’
space

Star Wars: The Clone WarsLiam Neeson will reprise his role as Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn in upcoming episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network. In a new 3-part story arc set to begin on January 28, Jinn will appear before Obi-Wan Kenobi in visions that focus on the destiny of the Chosen One, Anakin Skywalker.

In an interview with EW, Neeson talked about why he wanted to return to the Star Wars saga: “These characters resonate, even after all these years. Growing up, my heroes were cowboys; they were strong and mysterious, and it seemed like they always rode off into the sunset. For kids today, Star Wars has that same kind of magic. I really wanted to be a part of that.”

Another New ‘Star Wars’ Movie Rumor That No One Will Believe

The Movie God   |  @   |

Star Wars

We all know the routine: every once in a great while, a rumor surfaces that a brand new Star Wars movie could be in the works. The first thought is that George Lucas has finally decided that he wants to do the mythical last trilogy that would show us what happened after the original saga. After that, there’s thoughts of movies that just take place in a different part of that world, but that’s what the live-action television series we’ve heard about is supposed to be doing. So…just for the fun of it all, if they were making a brand new Star Wars movie, what could they be doing and what would YOU want them to do?

Now, I have no idea how this was even discovered, but Ain’t it Cool News went on an archaeological excavation and found a very brief, random bit encased within a blog written by Thomas Dolby, the man who co-wrote the Howard the Duck theme song.

Clone WarsStar Wars: The Clone Wars
Directed by Dave Filoni
Starring Matt Lanter, Ashley Eckstein, James Arnold Taylor, Dee Bradley Baker, Tom Kane
Rated PG
Release Date: August 15, 2008

Star Wars: The Clone Wars … and Why I Loved It!

In light of the fact that seemingly everywhere around me, critics were panning Star Wars: The Clone Wars, I went into the movie with low hopes. This was in direct contrast to 24 hours earlier, where I was eagerly anticipating the movie, and getting to see it before the majority of the world. But in that short time that early reviews appeared, and then were embargoed by LucasFilm, my hopes dropped.

I don’t know whether it was the fact my hopes were so low, or if it was just in fact a good film, but I really liked Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

But let’s get a few things sorted straight off the bat, ok? First of all, this is not a movie where peace can be found. The entire galaxy is at war, and if you look at the title of the movie, it says that it’s going to be about the war. Take a look back through movies like Saving Private Ryan, Battle of the Bulge, and The Longest Day. These movies were filled with action scene after action scene, and no one complained about it then. Why? Because they realized that in war, that’s what happens!

Why ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Won’t Sound Familiar
space
MajorJJH   |  
space

Clone WarsWith Star Wars: The Clone Wars only days away now, George Lucas is doing the rounds all over the place, explaining this and that, and providing the press with a stream of quotes and information. The latest piece of news concerns why Lucas hasn’t brought back the actors who portrayed the characters in the Star Wars prequels.

The only actors returning to voice their corresponding characters are Samuel L. Jackson (Mace Windu), Christopher Lee (Count Dooku), and Anthony Daniels (C-3P0). But characters like Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Yoda are going to have completely new actors behind them. Why?

To be very honest with you, I don’t really think I need to hire a big movie star to publicize my movie. I don’t need Angelina Jolie here. That’s what it comes down to in the end. They have two days in the studio and then they have like two weeks doing press. They are mainly paid for the press stuff.”

Australia Home to Upcoming ‘Star Wars’ TV Spin-off

movie_smHome to the kangaroo, the meat pie, and the BBQ, Australia will once again be home to George Lucas and Star Wars, in his live-action TV spin-off of this month’s animated theatrical feature, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The TV series looks to be filming at the Sydney Fox Studios, which was home to the Star Wars prequels, as well as to movies such as The Matrix and Superman Returns.

The live-action TV series has long been in the making, and is to be set between Episode III and Episode IV. However, it will not focus on any of the main characters from either Star Wars trilogies, but will look at some of the behind the scenes characters. One such character is likely to be Boba Fett, the son of Jango Fett from the prequel trilogy, and the bounty hunter who captured Han Solo for Jabba the Hutt.

“It has nothing to do with the Skywalker saga. None of the Skywalkers or anything,” Lucas said. “This is what I call a little footnote to the Skywalker saga … It is about the lower levels of life, the lower depths. They hear about the fact it is no longer a republic and now it’s an empire, but they are from a world where none of that really means too much to them.”

Countdown to Clone Wars: X-Wing – Wraith Squadron

Clone Wars

Star Wars: X-Wing - Wraith SquadronStar Wars: X-Wing
Written by Aaron Allston
Book 5: Wraith Squadron
Book 6: Iron Fist
Book 7: Solo Command
Del Rey Books

The second part of the X-Wing series of Star Wars novels, and the second last set of books from which I’ll be reviewing, we are introduced to Wedge Antilles’ idea of a flying-commando group. While Rogue Squadron turned out to be fliers who might be able to do other things, Wedge wanted a group of specialist commando’s who, just probably, could fly.

And thus, Wraith Squadron was born, and with it some of the greatest characters you could ever hope for.

Only Wedge is brought over from the first four books for Wraith Squadron, and he is joined by Wes Janson, a character that appears very briefly in Empire Strikes Back. Together, they choose a bunch of misfits and outcasts, most on their last chance in the New Republic military, but that have specific skills, to join their new Wraith Squadron (Wes is Wedge’s number 2).

‘Clone Wars’ To Roll Without ‘Star Wars’ Crawl
space
MajorJJH   |  
space

Star WarsNo, it isn’t some kind of weird dance. The “Star Wars crawl” refers to the opening three paragraphs of a Star Wars movie that fill you in on where the movie is starting.

Along with the 20th Century Fox fanfare, the green LucasFilm logo, “A long time ago…” opening, and the great big yellow STAR WARS, the crawl is one of those iconic aspects of the movies. But for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the upcoming animated full-length feature coming to theaters August 15, 2008, there won’t be any familiar crawl.

Looks like George Lucas has opted for something that he feels suits a TV format better, since the Clone Wars movie is a prelude to the upcoming television series.

“Because we originally developed this as a TV series, George felt that the crawl wasn’t going to be effective as a way to introduce the audience to the TV series,” director Dave Filoni told MTV. “He wanted it to be faster and he wanted to do it visually.”
