A few days back Rebelscum had a Clone Wars house party kit – now we have the details from the official site. One kid, Chicago’s Calvin Rodgers (above) is getting the red-carpet treatment.
The House Party folks may only have three days left before they see the first two episodes, but the rest of us are still waiting until October 3… Still, reviews and such are showing up:
We’re sure to see more as we approach the air date, and/or the TFU buzz fades.
A new video on the heroes of the movie went up on StarWars.com last night: There are a few new snippets in there.
The Washington Post’s Ann Hornaday is skeptical of George as a storyteller – and brands his cinematic outings as some of the world’s most expensive commercials.
The video game clip that showed up in Entertainment Weekly yesterday is now up at StarWars.com, or watch it above. LucasArts has launched a new site for the games.
The Maker talks about his television endeavours and what to expect from the new series. Also at MTV, Dave Filoni on swapping the opening crawl for a newsreel style opener.
The movie was screened for the media yesterday, so I’ll be on the lookout for increased coverage. So far there’s not too much out there (embargos?) but CNBC’s Jim Goldman has some (nonspoilery) praise. And StarWars.com has an interview with George Lucas and Dave Filoni.
To hold us over, io9 has ten reasons why the Clone Wars TV series is going to rule, including “seriously kickass female ninjas.” Not really sure about Ashoka myself, but I am looking forward to see more Asajj Ventress. Head over to Moviehole for an interview with TCW’s Anakin, Matt Lanter, and U.S. military folks are advised to check with their base theaters for early screenings!
A brand-new clip from The Clone Wars, The Battle of Christophsis, debuted (more or less) at the con and more importantly, is now online. Meanwhile, io9 has a video interview with Filoni.
And since Friday was Star Wars day, the official site has a transcript of the Lucasfilm panel (pretty much just The Clone Wars so far,) the making of Clone Wars, and Hasbro’s presentation.
