AICN Finds 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' Trailer (animated)
Monday, May 28, 2007 - reddit
Ain't it Cool News found a trailer for the new Star Wars: The Clone Wars trailer at StarWars.com. This is not the "trailer" that was circulating over the past few days that turned out to be created by fans, this is as official as it gets (as if the fact it's on starwars.com wasn't enough to tell you that.) I haven't seen it yet, but if the animation in the series is anything like this poster, then I'm very disappointed.
Those graphics look like a FPS from five or six years ago, they are that primitive. Very disappointed, actually, doesn't do it justice. I know ILM doesn't do TV shows (no time, plus I doubt anybody could afford them) but that's no excuse for animation this poor.
I know there are a lot of Star Wars fans out there, but movie fans are not the same thing as TV fans, much less a show that's pure animation (and bad animation at that.) Does Lucas really think there will be a draw out there for this? I'm just not seeing it.
The coming live-action series, however, could be huge. It could bust American Idol huge, or it could blow out from a lack of solid writing. There are a million ways to screw this up, and I'm betting the crew Lucas puts together will find a way.
