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

Yoda and the Order 66 arcs are the two I'm most interesting in watching. Not sure what to make of the Mace/Jar Jar storyline, but I've been pleasantly surprised in the past by the material the writers gave Jar Jar.

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

Thanks for that! In other Season 6 news and aimed more at action figure collectors than the average SW fan but still pertinent, Hasbro seems to be in the works to produce a super-articulated figure of Clone Commander Wolffe in its Black Series line of 3.75" collector-focused figures. They're also doing a second TCW Clone commander in the line, one specifically from the final episodes of the series and who wears a greenish kama. Interesting!

Wow ... more than ever I am disappointed that the series was canceled prematurely. This looks amazing ... and I'm thrilled we're going to be seeing it!

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

I guess it all depends on the setup and execution.

It looks like there should be enough, way more than enough, to compensate, assuming compensation is even required.

Well, nobody said the final 13 episodes would be remotely perfect. I guess we'll have to take the gristle with the meat.

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

I was really impressed by the use of the classic "Yoda's Theme" along with the cameo voiceover at the very beginning. "Yoda's Theme" is one of the most beautiful pieces that John Williams has ever composed.

I wish they'd used more of Williams's themes in the scoring of the actual show. But I guess that would cost more in residuals to Williams.

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

I think the show's score is one of its strengths. Kiner has done an amazing job with it. He will still weave Williams themes into the score when it's appropriate, but almost always with a new take them. I like that he isn't simply re-using the themes over and over again. He's kept the sound fresh and unique. And his work in the last Ahsoka episodes was amazing.

I really wish they'd release more soundtracks than just the one for the movie.
