George Lucas is self-producing a 100 Clone Wars episodes to fill in the gap between Episode II and Episode III. The 100 episodes will be full 3D productions. Once complete, he’ll shop the series to the networks.
I really didn’t like Episode I or II. III kicked the shit out of the previous two. You could probably show someone new to the Star Wars franchise that third one and they could jump right in to A New Hope without seeing Phantom Plot or Attack of the CG. Clone Wars kicked quite a lot of ass so this new series sounds really good. ILM does some truly truly outrageous CG and I can’t wait to see what they come up with. Sounds like a very ambitious project, but I think it’ll be worth seeing.
