There has been a lot of talk about the new Star Wars animated series Clone Wars and news recently came out that England would be getting the first three Episodes as a Feature film shown in theaters but no word about a US release. Much grumbling was had from Star Wars fans on this side of the pond.
But wait, there is a New Hope (see what I did there? Huh? Yeah, nevermind)
Star Wars: The Clone Wars will open in North American theaters Friday, August 15. International release dates will be announced soon.
So there you have it fanboys. The first three episodes of Star Wars Clone Wars will be a feature film before the season kicks off this fall.
Likely the series will pick up where the movie lets off, and a DVD will be available before its fall release on TV. Will you be going to see the movie or waiting for the release?
Larry also points out that it will not be distributed by Fox, which makes this the first Star Wars film that would not be preceded by the Searchlight Orchestra Fanfare. Another tidbit was that John Williams composed the Star Wars theme to be in the same key as the fanfare, as to not clash with the distributor’s credit segment.
