Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I have said this I think elsewhere but I would have personally have bookmarked the end of the "Clone Wars" with another feature film. I doubt that is how Filoni and Lucas planned...although I think I did come across an interview where Filoni stated another film intrigued him. This thing started as a film, and I always have thought it should end as one as well.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

Yes. A film to end the series and tie everything into the beginning of Episode III. I'd have enjoyed that.

The Tartakovsky microseries from ten years ago depicted Anakin and Obi-Wan and the moments leading up to the Battle of Coruscant and the beginning of Episode III, but that show has been effectively decanonized by now, at least partially. They could have rewritten the Jedis' adventures in the Outer Rim Sieges just before and as Palpatine is kidnapped and they receive the orders to return home to Coruscant for the battle and rescue mission.

It could have been a lot of fun, but oh well. Disney has other plans.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I'm wondering...should we get Neroon to close this thread? Or since it's still active...keep it open? Almost seems no point to keep it open in a way to me...but if you guys still want it then by all means. I'll miss this discussions, even though I always didn't participate in them. "The Clone Wars" kind of became a "Summer catch up" show for me.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I think we should keep it open, unless Neroon thinks it's for the best to clang this one shut and let us start a new thread about the future of the unreleased Clone Wars story material and discuss what happens to the characters now that the show has been cancelled.

I guess we'll know soon enough, but I'm not averse to letting this one last a little longer. We seem to be having some good conversations and some fun.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

Fair enough. I'm tempted to do a fan fic script lol. At the very least that is what Disney has been motivating me to do

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

The Darth Plagueis novel is extremely good and answers a LOT of questions about Palpatine, Plagueis, the Sith, Anakin, TPM, Dooku, Maul, Sifo-Dyas, etc, etc, etc. It's very well written too; it's a good STORY in addition to being a good fact hunt. The relationship between Plagueis and Sidious is actually quite fascinating.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I wouldn't mind seeing a CGI animated feature based on Plagueis. At this point everybody with a functioning central nervous system and is old enough to watch Star Wars without filling a diaper knows that Palpatine is the Sith Master and goes on to become the Emperor of the classic OT era. Let's adapt Luceno's novel and tell the story to a much wider audience. Make it a direct-to-DVD and BluRay release if you want, but I'd be interested in seeing it.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

Smaller characters I would have liked to have seen appear...Owen and Beru. I'm surprised we never saw them. Would have liked to have gotten one with Anakin back on Tatooine (not counting the movie), along with Padme and Obi-Wan and delved more into that "should have stayed here and not gotten involved."

I thought we would get an Obi-Wan and Bail story at some point. Also thought it might be interesting to see Bail's wife as she was the woman who raised Leia.

What I would have loved to have seen for Rex is a post-Order 66 storyline where he stays loyal to the Republic. This leads to him being hunted down by Cody and setting up a confrontation between the two. It would have been an interesting switch to see Anakin's clone remain loyal to the Republic while Obi-Wan's (like the other clones) was loyal to the Empire.

I think SW can have a great future in animation, like what WB does with DC and like how Marvel used to do animated straight-to-DVD films.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

Owen and Beru have always been underused during the course of the Prequel era. They got a few minutes to shine in AOTC and had the honor of being in the very emotional final shot of Episode III a few years later, but I always wanted the producers of the franchise to go back and expand on their characters a little bit, even if it was just a single animated TV episode.

Lots of blown potential with those two, and with Cliegg Lars. It's implied that he's gone by the time Obi-Wan delivers baby Luke to the couple on Tatooine but we never saw nor heard anything else about him after Anakin leaves the planet in Episode II.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

Yeah, it was kind of surprising to me too that we never got more Tattoine in TCW. I wouldn't have minded seeing something with Obi-Wan spending more time there as a set up for him picking there to hide out after Order 66.
And maybe see him spending some time with the Lars, so that he would know he could definitely trust them not to turn Luke over to the Empire.
EDIT: I've been meaning to mention that a few months ago my local CW station started airing syndicated repeats of Clone Wars.

Perfect. I know you could easily say that he just gave Luke to them because they were his family, but I'd still like it better if there was more to it than that.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

If nothing else I hope we get a major hardcover novel about such a storyline. Who knows what kind of animated or filmed attention the new Disney regime will give characters like these from this point forward, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

There's Kenobi which is a novel coming out about Kenobi's early days on Tatooine. I wouldn't be surprised if some of it deals with Own and Beru,
