Just when you thought George Lucas had milked his intergalactic cash cow dry with endless re-issues of the Star Wars saga on DVD, he executive produces this computer-animated adventure that slips neatly into the narrative divide between Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith. Little more than a glossy teaser for a forthcoming television series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars boasts lots of eye-popping action sequences, including a terrific opening skirmish between the Jedi Knights and the...

Just when you thought George Lucas had milked his intergalactic cash cow dry, he executive produces this computer-animated adventure that slips into the narrative divide between Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith. Star Wars: The Clone Wars boasts lots of eye-popping action sequences including a terrific opening skirmish between the Jedi Knights and the separatist droid army. Viewing the showdown from the perspective of a clone trooper on the ground dodging enemy cannon fire, is...

By Andrew Edwards Is "The Force" losing its strength? A new chapter in the "Star Wars" series - "The Clone Wars" is set to hit movie screens today. But in the wake of a much-hyped and - to many - disappointing round of prequels, "Clone Wars" may be one movie too many. "Really, no one is excited at all," said Jason Washburn, manager of Comic Quest in downtown Redlands. "Clone Wars," a computer-animated film, is a precursor to a new animated series scheduled to premiere on Cartoon...

By JEREMY G VINLUAN By Jeremy G. Vinluan Teen correspondent "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" is unusual, unbelievable and unrealistic. It is truly out of this world. The movie is pure digital. It is the first "Star Wars" animated feature. Unlike any live-action "Star Wars" movie, this film opens with a quick narration. Seriously, it is too fast. The creators should have stuck with the slower, scroll-up summary. The 98-minute movie is packed with too many characters and too much...

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS -- ** -- Animated feature starring the voices of Matt Lanter, Samuel L. Jackson and others; rated PG (violence, vulgarity, slurs, mild profanity, brief drugs) George Lucas was involved in "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" only peripherally -- as the executive producer of this digitally animated, science-fiction feature, which is another "prequel" to his beloved, original "Star Wars" trilogy. Yet strangely, the film has several of the same problems that afflicted Lucas's...

By Chris Hicks Deseret News There's been a lot of talk about whether "The Dark Knight" will overtake "Star Wars" and "Titanic" as the all-time box-office champ. There seems to be little question that "Star Wars" is about to fall to third place. At No. 2, with $461 million in box-office earnings, George Lucas' epic could be knocked off its perch this weekend, since "The Dark Knight" has already taken in $441.4 million. "Titanic" is further away, at $600.8 million, and to some analysts...

By Anthony Breznican The new Star Wars movie may be less for Jabba than for Jabba's baby. (Yeah, Jabba the Hutt has a baby this time.) The animated The Clone Wars, with its brightly colored computer animation, characters designed to look like wooden Thunderbirds-style marionettes and a decidedly silly tone to the action, suggests Star Wars Jr. more than the dark psychodrama that adults preferred in the franchise's core films. Some grown-up Star Wars fans have scorched the new...

By Steve Pratt Along, long time ago, Star Wars drew an army of fans. One, Dave Filoni, has created a new film. Steve Pratt reports WHEN Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith opened in the cinema three years ago, Dave Filoni stood in line like any other fan. He was dressed in a handmade costume of his favourite Star Wars character, a relatively unknown Jedi knight named Plo Koon. He shared his love of Star Wars with others in the queue by handing out toys from his private...

By Gunnar Johnson Even though it was released only a few weeks ago, The Dark Knight is already one of the top 10 grossing movies of all time, according to the Internet Movie Database Web site, imdb.com. Shown here are the other nine films on the list. Can you put all 10 in the correct order?
