Send in the Clones

Wow, imagine George Lucas trying to milk more money out of his fans: his CGI Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series will actually premiere in theaters this August prior to debuting on the Cartoon Network the following month. In other words, Lucas will pass off what appears to be a really badly computer animated pilot episode as a feature film.

Furthermore, the "movie", which will take place between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith (Episode II.5?), won't even have the major original actors voicing their signature roles, save for the ever loyal Anthony Daniels as C-3P0 (Samuel L. Jackson has expressed interest to return for the series as his bad-ass Jedi, Mace Windu).

If I sound a bit skeptical about this new enterprise, it is because I have been disillusioned by the whole Star Wars universe since about halfway through Return of the Jedi. And apparently, I'm not the only one.

UPDATE: Don't bother, they're here: the trailer.
