The big news at Celebration IV

Right here, gentle readers. Clone Wars, the series.

The Force is strong with this one. Very, very, VERY strong. If anything, the CGI in this makes more sense than the CGI in the Prequel Trilogy because it doesn't look as alien and lifeless as it did when it was added to live action animation.

I like the fact they have purposely made the character designs reminiscent of Genndy Tartakovsky's drawn character designs for the Clone Wars shorts. They also are reminiscent of Gentle Giant's Star Wars maquettes.

This, and the live-action teen comedy 5-25-77, are the things that make me say "impressive, most impressive" at this biennial fan confab. Hopefully we'll get to cover these on the Cartoon Geeks podcast in future episodes.
