The "Clone Wars" Comes to Theaters

The computer animated Star Wars television series, "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," will be be making its debut in cinemas August 15. This unexpected move gets even more interesting. George Lucas has teamed with Warner Brothers to handle the movie's distribution, marking the first time Fox has not had a helping hand in marketing a theatrical Star Wars flick.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars," is a television series said to take place in between Episodes II and III and will air on Cartoon Network and TNT. I assume the movie will be nothing more than the pilot episode.

Now the big question. The one I ask so often in the cinema world. Why? We know the obvious reason. But really, why? Cartoon Network already aired a "Clone Wars" mini-series on Cartoon Network that was hand drawn. Is this just the same story with prettier effects? Is this George's "SPECIAL EDITION" "Clone Wars," because it's become clear he likes doing the same thing over and over. I'm more interested in this live action television seeries he's planned that takes place between episodes III and IV, but who knows how that'll turn out. Looks like Star Wars has becoming the epitome of milking something for everything it's worth. I'm not intrigued.
