The full theatrical trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars has arrived online over at Yahoo!. For those wondering how and why there would be yet another Star Wars movie on the way, here’s the deal: this is the feature-length pilot episode of the upcoming CGI series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which is going to be released in theatres on August 15th. This is not to be confused with the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series of shorts directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, which aired on The Cartoon Network in between the release of Star Wars: Episode 2 and 3 (although it does take place during the same time period). Are you confused yet?
Personally I find it pretty hard to get excited about the Star Wars universe when it’s all just getting more and more diluted. This time period in particular seems pretty dull, and I don’t have much interest in anything that’s connected to the prequel trilogy. On the other hand, there are plenty of people out there who have read all the novels and just can’t wait to get their hands on anything Star Wars-related, so odds are this could do quite well in theatres. What do you think of the new trailer? Are you excited about Star Wars: The Clone Wars?» Related Link: Yahoo!: Star Wars: The Clone Wars trailer
