Entry: STAR WARS Wednesday, July 30, 2008



I'm excited about the new CLONE WARS MOVIE coming out on August 15th.  I'm a fan of the original, 25-chapter series by Genndy Tartakovsky and look forward to more stories from this exciting period in the Star Wars Universe.  Here's the trailer

Looks good to me, but the question I have is when this story takes place.  Obviously - as much of the press states - between Episode II and Episode III.  However, the real question is when does it take place in relation to the original Clone Wars series.  Asajj Ventress is in this new movie and was introduced in the Tartakovsky CW series, so it looks to be the same universe.  Anakin defeated her at the end of Chapter 19, this story appears to be her return, so it's gotta be after that.  General Grevious is in this new movie and he was introduced in Chapter 20, so it's gotta be after that.  Chapter 21 picks up right where Chapter 20 left off (or perhaps even backtracks a little as the Clone Troopers are on their way to save Ki-Adi-Mundi from a Grievous ass-whupping), so it's gotta be after that.  Chapters 24-25 deal with Palpatine getting abducted, which leads right into Episode III, so this new movie has to take place before that, doesn't it?  Maybe this story takes place between Chapters 21 and 22?  22 and 23?  Your guess is as good as mine. 

I'm still looking forward to it, but the shine is off the apple a bit for the Clone Wars these days.  This period seemed a lot more exciting to me before Episode III than after.  What I'd really like to see is stuff between III and IV.  I'm sure George will get  to that eventually...

Unquestionably believe that which you whispered. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.

My fear is that this isn't part of the Clone Wars cartoon but is a reboot of the same time period. Reboots suck in general.

The most exciting period is after VI, because then for the first time in over a quarter of a century, we don't know how it's going to turn out.

I don't give a hoot when it takes place, just bring on that Jedi action! This looks really, really cool.

My only criticism? Jabba. Why couldn't they leave him be after Jedi? He was this mysterious, threatening figure chasing after Han Solo for two solid movies. When we finally meet him in Jedi it's such a satisfying pay-off.

And then what? Lucas does the Star Wars Special Edition and makes Jabba do a Back-to-the-Future-style appearance with Solo in the hangar bay. Solo stomps on Jabba's tail so we can all have a chuckle, but he might as well have castrated him because we no longer fear Jabba at that point - so why should Han?

Jabba should have stayed dead when Leah strangled him on the Sail Barge. None of this 'son of Jabba' business 25 years later.
