This past weekend at New York Comic Con, Lucasfilm rep Steve Stansweet presided over a presentation promoting several things coming soon for fans of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises. In addition to trailers for upcoming video games and a brief live interview with Seth Green and Matthew Senreich about the Star Wars edition of their Cartoon Netowrk show Robot Chicken, Stansweet screened a trailer for the upcoming animated theatrical film Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which will kickoff the television series of the same name.
I have to say that I wasn’t really that impressed with the footage shown. I think it stems from the odd and uneasy juxtapositioning of the some elements that are far more photorealistic than others which are more stylized. It makes for an ugly and jarring combination. Of course, the writing might elevate the material, so there’s hope there.
In the meantime, Empire has scored a pair of new pictures from Star Wars: The Clone Wars‘ upcoming theatrical release in August. Click over to their site to check them out.
