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

an early peek at and chatted with Dave Filoni about the movie. Their take is pretty positive, but they do manage to cite least one detail that outdoes the hilarity/horror of “punky muffin.” Here’s hoping it sounds better in context… The Clone Wars
