I’m pretty excited about this. Although I’m a huge Star Trek fan, I’m sort of a Star Wars nut as well. I have to get every novel that is released and heaven forbid if I don’t read them in order! I remember my parents taking me to Star Wars: A New Hope when it first came out. We went to the drive-in (now those are memories). I think I almost peed my pants when I saw Darth Vader for the first time but I was from then on hooked on sci-fi.
The latest SW movie should be no different. It may be animated but I imagine the storyline is anything but childish. The past minisodes of Clone Wars met with rave reviews. I expect nothing less with this movie.
Following the movie, the animated TV series. Yes, that’s right! This is going to blow the droids cartoon back in the 1980′s out of the water! Of course, only those hard-core and older fans remember the made-for-TV SW movie aired during the Christmas season. I can’t remember if it was late 70′s or early 80′s (kinda a blur).
Don’t let this event pass you by. As I mentioned, it may be a cartoon but the story is anything but.
