Bonnie Burton | April 21, 2008

According to, “Robot Chicken” co-creator and actor Seth Green revealed at NY Comic Con that he will be doing a cameo in the upcoming Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series.

“I did something on that cartoon,” Green admitted to us at NY Comic Con, revealing for the first time that the “Buffy” star will be making an appearance in the upcoming Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. “I came in and did a voice.”

As for which character Green will play, fans will have to wait for the series to hit Cartoon Network later this year to find out. “I’d love to tell you, but I can’t,” he gushed. “They make me sign all these papers and then they take my kids away. [But] it was fun.”

ShoWest: Star Wars: The Clone Wars Team | March 14, 2008

Our ShoWest coverage of the Warner Bros. “Big Picture” presentation ended on an exciting note as filmmaker George Lucas took to the stage escorted by six Clone troopers from the 501st Legion.

Before airing a clip from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Lucas addressed the audience comprised of motion picture distributors and marketers, fellow directors, producers and actors about his decision to make another feature and TV series that takes place between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.


ShoWest: The Clone Wars, Indy and More!

Bonnie Burton | March 13, 2008

Arriving in Las Vegas is always a surreal experience, especially during the day. So as I walked through the Paris Hotel checking out all the posters and displays for upcoming films at the ShoWest movie trade convention, I felt a glowing sense of pride when I spotted style guide art for The Clone Wars display and the poster for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

It’s a bit humorous to see where the posters are placed next to each other. As precise marketing folks can be about which movies they want to release their trailers before, it’s funny to see which movie posters are placed next to each other. For example, there’s something comforting knowing that Jedi Knights probably could help Harold & Kumar in their escape from Guantanamo Bay, or that the ladies of Sex and the City would be more than happy to show Indiana Jones a thing or two about running from the bad guys in high heels meant for the catwalk.


Report from Wonder-Con: Lucasfilm Presentation (Part 3)

Pablo Hidalgo | February 23, 2008

Steve Sansweet: On August 15th, Star Wars returns to the theaters in all new animated feature film, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, to be followed this fall by a new weekly series of the same name airing on Cartoon Network and TNT. We’ll be announcing international dates for the movie and international partners for the series over the next couple of months. Star Wars: The Clone Wars has an entirely new look and feel and combines the broad scope of Star Wars and the saga with state-of-the-art computer-generated animation. Each week, viewers are going to see really a very exciting half-hour “mini-movie” created by the talented artists at Lucasfilm Animation. From what I’ve already seen, we are in for one heck of an exciting ride. But don’t take my word for it. Take the word of Dave Filoni, Supervising Director for the Clone Wars project.
