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

I wouldn't use the word "pissed" to describe my own reactions if this is true, but let's just say I'd be very disappointed. Those characters deserve closure, and not just in some future video game or book that far fewer people will play or read.

If nothing else show what Maul's ultimate fate is. That'd be something. One character is better than none at all.

TheForce.net reports rumors that there will be two final arcs but a third featuring Boba Fett, Aurra Sing, and the final fate of Cad Bane will not be completed.
TheForce.Net:
"This story arc, which my source tells me was almost done, would have shown us the fates of Cad Bane and Aurra Sing."

Almost fucking done? Well then....

Welcome to my shit list, Disney.

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

I'll remain open minded for now about the wrapup of the series and some of the loose ends, but let's just say I'm not enthralled with the folks who made these recent decisions and they're not off to the best start with the television branch of the Lucas franchise.

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

Maybe they could do novels or comics of the rest of the series that they don't show us? Probably a pipe dream...but I'd take it if it happened.

If they can handle more than one thing, why does focusing their attention on new movies mean they can't also focus their attention on something else?
Because they want to make the best possible movie, and they've chosen to focus all of their creative energy on it. Which is fine with me, I'm up for anything that would increase the chances of EPVII being good.
I'm hoping for an awesome Episode VII as well, but the apologist theories about canning a TV series "focusing energy to make the film better" is all bullshit. It's a familiar tune. It's something that comes out of a press release that we're asked to chew and swallow.

It's doesn't take an infinite number of people to make a great movie. If it took 2000 people to make a great film, how can it be proven that it would take 4000 people to make a movie twice as great?

The show was turfed to put more money in the pockets of Disney investors. Corporate decisions favor the consumer last.

This new animated series... chances are it will be set during the Old Republic Era, right? Were I one of Disney's bean counters, I'd want to fanbase to start thinking of another time period (besides the Clone Wars era) and fast.
Agreed, it's bullshit. Disney could still be making money off The Clone Wars and from some talk, they might not even get Episode VII out until 2016. So they're not going to do any Star Wars projects becaue their multi-billion-dollar global brand can't handle it?

Disappointed to hear that the "bonus content" is apparently only two story arcs. I'm curious as to how "almost done" the bounty hunters arc was. It it was only a few days from being done then I'm not surprised if Disney just said "fuck it." They've proven they don't give a shit about this show.

Two story arcs...I'm guessing one of them is the Clovis arc that was originally scheduled for Season 5. So that pretty much means one new arc was completed. It's too bad it's not more.

I like to think I enjoyed The Clone Wars as much as the next person, but at this point my feelings are; Just let me have my season five blu-ray and I'm ready to move on to new Star Wars.

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

There's supposed to be a huge announcement from Dark Horse comics that their editor is very excited about sometime this week maybe. My dream would be for it to be the full continuation/conclusion of The Clone Wars in comic form.

Now that would be something to cheer about. I'm interested. We'll have to keep our eyes and ears open for whatever this announcement is.

Not damn likely, considering Disney's already got their own comic wing (Marvel) and are eager to return Star Wars to it. All Dark Horse SW titles end this December, and they've already made it clear no new SW titles are expected out of Marvel until 2015 AT LEAST.

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

Yeah Dark Horse has been rumoured to have been making some kind of huge announcement for the last week or two and nothing's come down yet. I doubt it has anything to do with Clone Wars, if anything it most likely has to do with their rights situation regarding their Star Wars line. As mentioned above it is supposed to expire...unless they've worked out some kind of deal with Disney/Marvel to co-publish, which would be huge news, but outside of this I haven't been able to come up with what it could be.

I doubt that they will do nothing with the franchise until the movie comes out. I just have a feeling that they will be doing their own thing instead of continuing something somebody else started. At this point I'm thinking anything we get will either be set in the Original Trilogy era, or in an era we haven't seen on screen before. Besides, like I said before it makes sense to me that they would want to start over fresh with stuff that they can have full control over. Think of it this way, if the Disney Star Wars stuff does suck, at least it'll be something new that sucks from the beginning, instead of ruining Clone Wars.

Disappointed to hear that the "bonus content" is apparently only two story arcs. I'm curious as to how "almost done" the bounty hunters arc was. It it was only a few days from being done then I'm not surprised if Disney just said "fuck it." They've proven they don't give a shit about this show.

Damn, I hadn't heard that it was only going to be two arcs. I was hoping for at least three or four.

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

I was sort of hoping to see what happens to the pubescent Boba Fett as the Clone Wars begin to draw to a close, but it's not as if we don't know what his destiny is. Plus there's still the much-discussed live action TV series set between Episodes III and IV that's been rumored to be very heavy on minor characters and bounty hunters, so Boba can resurface on that show (if it ever gets made and sold to a network).

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

I really could have done without the Clovis arc... he wasn't the most interesting character in the series by far. The last time we saw him he spent all his time trying to rape Padme. The only particular interest here is seeing he and Anakin sort of face off. Anakin really screwed him over the last time we saw him. Hopefully the Padme is minimal, too. It would be a painful irony if the final Clone Wars shows are climaxed with her boring senate speeches!! We get enough of that shit from the prequel films.

We know what these 'arcs' are like... they go both ways. On one hand, an arc full of awesome delivers the goods non stop, such as any Darth Maul arc or droid factory demolition (Landing at Point Rain anyone?) but then the problem is that we get saddled with real stinkers like the Gascon droid story which was mind numbingly stupid or the absolute train wreck of the Mortis arc which I can't bring myself to watch ever again...

Well worth our time would be finding out what happens to Sing and Bane... of course we know what happens with Boba. Still, I'm pretty happy that most of the background characters from the prequels (of which Sing would be the poster girl from her 1 second of screen time in TPM) got at least one story to shine in.

So that's it. Concluding the series in animated format (can't say I'm enthusiastic about continuing the series in comic form) we have:

6.1 Botched Order 66 story? (3-4 episodes)
6.2 Clovis story conclusion (3-4 episodes)


Way to go out with a fizzle... there are so many other exciting ideas that no doubt will be locked in Disney's goddamned vault. (On a side note, I find it terrifying that they promote willingly the intractable nature of their media releases with the terminology "vault") All I can hope for is a few descent showdowns will popular/main villains, it would be great to see Grevious and/or Ventress one last time or Dooku for that matter. A few scenes with Ahsoka might be great, but given her prominence in season 5 perhaps she was excluded from season 6 outright?

I still think she should be on the season 5 DVD Blu Ray cover. And dare I say it... it might make perfect sense to include said unreleased shows on the season 5 DVD/Blu Ray as a bonus disc? Many of us were going to by it anyway...
