They played this trailer before they showed Speed Racer at my theater.  I was in awe of the art style of the animation.  I am very stoked for this one.

Based on how good the animated series was, I'm cautiously optimistic.

However, a few things give me pause:

1) Yoda's dialogue is even more unnaturally stilted than it's been before.  Distractingly so.

2) For reals? Jabba's son has been kidnapped in order to goad the Hut into mobilizing against the Jedi? Given that we're talking about a criminal syndicate, I think you could find something far less 80's videogame plot-ish to get the same thing to happen.

3) I think I prefer the cel animation from the previous animated series.

We'll see what happens.  I suppose a full CG movie was the inevitable next step for Lucas.  For years he's been forced to deal with pesky actors getting in the way of his flashy special effects.  Now that the actors are special effects, he should be much happier.

actually the movie is going to be the first few episodes of the new Clone Wars TV series combined together.

my biggest question concerns just how self-contained this 'movie' will end up.  is it intended to stand well on its own, or will it leave you hanging at the end, needing to watch the new show in order to see what happens next?  i'm a big SW fan, so i'll wind up watching the show anyway, but you have wonder what it will be like for those who won't be bothered to check out the follow-up series...

that said, the trailer looks very cool  icon_cool

Exactly.

Now photoshop a lightsaber in there and we will have a BA Jedi.  A Master Baracus if you will.  "I ain't flying in no X-wing Hannibal!"

I'm not very impressed. This is more likely to win over kids though. I just don't think it will be a must-see.
