Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion
 
I figure this will hold us over until October...SDCC coverage here. The panel was a packed house. They started off by talking about Darth Maul and moved on from there.

Most of what I've read so far sounds pretty cool. Do we know yet if this will be the last season like they originally planned?

I don't think there has been official word on that one way or another yet. I suspect that will come next month at Celebration VI.

Animation is simply stunning. It gets better with every season.

I think Lucas should dump the live action show for good, and do a second animated show instead.

I'd love to see a post ROTJ animated series...anyways, I'm looking forward to season 5 as it looks to be the best yet.

Nah, as far as Lucas is concerned, the Skywalker saga ended with Vader's redemption.

Unless you actually meant ROTS. That's what I was thinking. But something other than that criminal underworld bullshit Rick McCallum was talking about.

I want a show about Tarkin's rise within the ranks and Vader's quest to find and eradicate all the remaining Jedi in hiding, while Bail Organa and Mon Mothma build the Rebel Alliance. Now THAT would be worth watching, IMO.

Imagine - Season 1 finale, a two-parter, "The Battle of Polis Massa". Empire finds it and blows it to kingdom come. I bet even the OT purists would dig that.

I've recently gotten the first 4 seasons (Never actually watched the show yet), and I already have the original Movie, which I have watched, but, don't really remember.

I know the Movie gets berated, but, when I do my marathon, should I watch the Movie before S1. Currently working my way through Stargate SG-1 at the rate of about a Season a week (Just starting Season 7 now), and will probably start on Clone Wars when SG-1 is done, so I can be frustrated with the rest of you watching an episode a week beginning S5 (or maybe I'll watch Atlantis first and record S5 as it airs, and watch it all when S5 is done, so I don't suffer through only an episode a week)

The movie is basically a pilot, so it's not to be skipped. And it's not really THAT bad, it's just, it had no business being released in cinemas. It's TV-tier material all the way.

OK, cool, thanks, that's what I thought, but, I just wanted to be sure

Sindatur: I recently did a rewatch of TCW and used the viewing order from this site http://dauntlessmedia.net/starwars/c...-timeline.html
I definitely recommend watching the eps how they list them. It's amazing how much better the show flows. As you will notice, the movie is actually the third episode.

Thanks, I've got that bookmarked. I may do this, you think eps 3.10 through 4.22 should all be watched in their broadcast order, or is there an update? I notice most of S2 that's left seems to flow on it's own, once you get to that point.

2.15 is after 3.11, but from there on out it's a straight run. I just noticed they are updating the list in the comments section of that page. i suppose if there are any changes, they'll post them.

Once the character models are updated (halfway through S3 I think), I'm pretty sure the broadcast order is chronological... or at least they don't go back to before the change.

In the trailer who gives the speech to the mandos? Is it Pre Vizla?

I hope it's Spar.
