By that comment, I can only assume you have never even played the KOTOR games and are saying that on blind ignorance alone. I have never seen a person that has actually played KOTOR and didn't like it. Many people will even say that KOTOR was better than the prequel trilogy.

KOTOR is awesome and is in fact better than the prequels. It also has better character models than this movie.

Agreed. Still, I think it's miles above the horrible "animation" they had for the Clone Wars Animated series.

You release something on the big screen, and charge people $10.50 (here in Chicago) to view it and they should expect, nar say demand, good animation work.

Anything else looks like a cheap way to grab some cash..which wouldn't be a first from the source.

Agreed. People, particularly Net Folks, are so hard to please these days. Then if you give them the same old style of shit, they bitch about how people have run out of new things.

Out of all my friends, it seems like I'm the only one that wants to watch it and some of them are bigger fans. I like the animation, at least everything is consistent. No obvious looking CGI that takes me out of the movie.

I just want to watch the cg they're comparing them so unfavorably to.

I think this looks great. I was a big fan of the animated series, and I may be in the minority here, but I love the animation.

Looks a lot more entertaining than the last 3, hopefully Unknown is a better director than Lucas.

I've finally figured out what the character design reminds me of...

Seeing the trailer a few times on the big screen now, I don't mind the animation. I get caught up in the action and I can immerse myself.

What does take me out of it, is not seeing the Fox logo in front. That just weirds me out to see a Star Wars vehicle with the WB logo before the LucasFilm card.

Is this an anticipated movie? Whenever I see the trailer at the theater, I wonder how it's going to do because I can't tell if people are excited about it in the way they are for live action Star Wars movies. Are Star Wars fans excited to see it?

I'm honestly so drained of this new franchise that I just don't care anymore, I won't pay to see this even though it does look like an improvement over the actual prequels.

Honestly, I don't know what happened to my love of Star Wars... It wasn't necessarily the prequels, because I did enjoy them, but I do feel the concept was greater than the execution. I think it has to do with GL's involvement any more... I can't really pin it down, but I just feel like he's sort of pissed away all the goodwill I had for it all. To the point that I don't even keep up with the universe any more. I'm sure I'll eventually see this new iteration/extension of the Clone Wars, but I'm certainly not rushing to it.

I think it might take a full transition of creative control from him to someone else, either by choice or death, before I really tune in again.

I'm certainly anticipating it. I'm not following the spoilers as much as I did for the prequels, but I'm very glad to be dipping back into the Clone Wars.

As I've pointed out many times (on this forum alone), the prequel trilogy should have been based on the Clone Wars. After that casual mention by Obi Wan way back in 1977, there was an expectation built up that the prequels just flatout ignored.

And I am also a huge fan of Tartakovsy's animated micro-series also. I'm hoping these are complimentary series and don't clash too much.

I feel kind of burned out on the series myself. My problem with the Clone Wars (in the prequels and the animated series) is that it's just too muddled. I don't know who the good guys are, who the bad guys are, what planet they fighting on, what each particular battle is being fought for, etc. It's just a series of space battles and lightsaber duels that just seem too disorienting.


However, while I may be burned out on clone war stories, I'd flip out if LucasFilm created a post-episode six story.

Greatest Star Wars comment ever - my dad after watching AOTC: "Wait, Yoda's leading the stormtroopers?"

Actually, that was one bit of the prequels I thought was pretty brilliant. Not to drag this off topic, but look at our situation in the middle east: are we the good guys? Bad guys? Caught in the middle guys? What little we got of the machinations of the Clone Wars I thought was great. There just wasn't enough of it.


And I would sell a kidney for Eps 7,8 and 9.


(Second greatest SW comment: "More talking? This is the worst one yet!" My mother, watching ROTS. )
