I can feel your anger
Director George Lucas's epic saga of destiny, good and evil, love and loss, friendship and betrayal, and wooden acting and clunky dialogue is back. The Star Wars saga is about to return to the big screen in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. This isn't a new film as such, but the feature-length pilot for the upcoming CG animated TV series from Lucasfilm Animation. This spin-off is set between episodes 2 and 3 of the prequel trilogy, and further chronicles the events of the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the separatist Confederacy of Independent Systems. From the trailer it looks promising; apparently the plot involves the kidnapping of Jabba the Hutt's son, but I hope the finished product will be up to scratch.
