Does he want a shot at the Jedi, like Anakin Skywalker? Read it and find out!
On the video game front, the demo version of Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroeshas been releasedon XBox Live for download. The game takes place between seasons 1 and 2, and will be released on September 15 for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PS2, Nintendo DS, and PSP.
I’ve always thought that rerunning the show on another channel was a bit unnecessary – not when they still have a place on the Cartoon Network. Perhaps, as TFN’s Mike speculates, the TNT ratings simply weren’t as good as expected.
