Skywalker Sound, Industrial Light and Magic, American Graffiti, and of course the original trilogy. The prequels don’t ruin that legacy.Joseph Ben Unkle III

After what we got in yesterday’s @TheCloneWars episode, the series should go on for another 5 seasons. Stunning. #CloneWarsJustin LaSalata
Can we finally accept that the @clonewars has proper Mandos now? (And better than KTs Mando-klingons)paul depaola
