Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Trailer Version 1: The Clones Prepare

Okay, I can't help but think that Lucas cut back on the budget in the textures (looks like a videogame), lighting, character modeling (the stylistic design doesn't lend itself as well to 3D as it does to the 2D micro-series), hair effects, and especially on facial detail and facial animation quality. It literally looks like a TV pilot, which is exactly what it is.

They're using the film to fund the pilot and to fund much of the groundwork and foundation for the 3D cartoon series (much how Jimmy Neutron did).

I just wish they'd increase the quality in the movie.

Despite all that, it is Star Wars, it will probably do ridiculously well, and it may still may be extremely fun to watch, even if all the characters feel "dead" due to a lack of facial animation and unrealistic facial designs (yes, sometimes cartoons need semi-realistic facial designs).

Enjoy the previews here and all the interviews we've compiled!!!

So George blames it on us, his fans, that the low-quality film is hitting the theaters. Great. Thanks for blaming us, George.
