In this week’s roundup, The Clone Wars cast clowns around with royalty, The Lion King screws up a generation, Lucasfolks fool around with chalk, and a jolly Star Wars Reads Day is held by all. Plus the usual nerd party favors, below the cut.

Is it bad I can tell someone is watching a George Lucas movie just by the sound effects?Liam Grunté
I bet its a total mindfuck for kids who grew up with Lion King to watch Star Wars for the 1st time and hear Mufasa’s voice coming from VaderWonder Monkey
The Force is strong with our front stoop. #StarWars @bonniegrrl @parkerpublicist LaSalata
I may have spent a while bargaining for a beat up handless Jabba figure at a Halloween store, stating, "He needs a good home."Drea

The Clone Wars

So that episode was kind of boring but seem to be building up to something bigger. Environments were pretty. Lux and Ahsoka :/ #CloneWarsAaron Goins
Watching #CloneWars. HOW does the Empire take over the galaxy with such stupid droids????D. B.
And that’s lux? Didnt recognise him. They aged him up well. Looks way more like his mother now. I love his path through the #CloneWars.James Brophy
I’m really not diggin’ Maul’s overly long cyber legs. Half the time he’s a badass, half the time he’s a chump. #clonewarsCan’dalore
I think the new #CloneWars was good, I liked it. But I still want to see more character growth to make the characters we see in Episode III!Padmé Skygirl
Gotta say, we’re only 2 episodes in and I already miss having @TheCloneWars on Friday nights. @cartoonnetwork #CloneWarsJustin LaSalata
