A new Star Wars movie?
After a few weeks of rumors it is official! A new Star wars movie! Sorta...
The scoop is that Lucas has announced that the upcoming CGI animated Clone Wars (not to be confused with the previous animated Clone Wars) will premiere in a movie format on the big screen this summer.

I am excited to see more Star wars but I am a little disappointed they are revisiting this period of the story. My guess is that the whole Anakin/Vader legacy turned out to way more anti-climatic than we had imagined for the last 25 years. Now they want to go back and try and strengthen a pretty weak story.
I'm still much more interested in the live action TV series that's still in the works. This one is suppose to take place in the 17 year period between the end of Episode III and the beginning of Episode IV. The Dark Times. This to me has much more of a chance at having some dramatic appeal like Empire did. And as great as the original special effects were in their day the thing that i think kept us coming back to the original movies again and again was the story. Something lacking in the newer movies.
