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

I'm glad time travel never became a convenient shortcut in the Lucas universe. It can get tiresome enough in Trek and while it's often executed very well in that franchise it just gets old, especially after Voyager when it seemed the writers could probably have used temporal anomalies to explain even hot coffee and normal humanoid respiration.

Leave alternate timelines and realities in the EU graphic novels and other stories where they don't have an actual impact on the history and stories of the films and television series.

Time travel in Star Wars could be fun. They could have Luke travel back in time to the Clone Wars era. He'd probably start meddling in the events of Revenge of the Sith - trying to preventing the destruction of the Jedi, preventing Anakin from going to the dark side etc

Wasn't there an EU book called Crosscurrent that dealt with time travel? Otherwise, Star Wars has remained remarkably time travel free.

It wasn't really time travel, it was a ship in the ancient past being caught in a time dilation mishap that dropped it into modern day time.

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

Yeah. I'm seriously considering getting it now. I wonder what the directors cut episodes are that are included?

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

This thread and one other snippet are all I've read thus far so I couldn't tell you. If I had to take a wild guess I'd say the recent Darth Maul arc might be one of the storylines with an unseen director's cut.

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

My only...nitpick that I have is the box art. Why aren't Anakin and Ahosoka on there? It seems odd just to have Obi-Wan on a complete series box art to me.

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

Perhaps there'll be several different variations of the box art and packaging, with one or more retail chains getting their own exclusive packaging design(s) that will feature different characters pictured in the artwork?

From the link, I think the Obi-Wan cover is for the complete FIFTH season box, not the series box.

ComingSoon has a new story with a trailer for the the S5 and Complete Sets. The Obi-Wan art is just the S5 set.
