Clone Wars was one of the best action cartoons I've ever watched. This one should be great too.

Indeed. It's surprising to see just how far they were willing to take the action + dark side themes in later seasons.

The only thing I'd like to see is an unexpected art style and better animations. Something like this:

Lol They're not making an anime. It'll probably be basically the same stuff they did for the Clone Wars. Plus, what do you mean better animations? Clone Wars is labeled as some of the smoothest and best animation on television.

I didn't say it had to be an anime, just of a different flavor like the vid in my first comment.

The "on television" bit is far from true (especially when considering animes). In fact, I'd slam first season's animations as being mechanical like the heavily-criticized movie was. By better, I mean no hints of that early on.

Lol What? I don't think we were watching the same show. Sure, the first season was a little rough, but by the end of the series, it was phenomenal animation.

coolbeans1250d ago (Edited 1250d ago )

We watched the same series, I can assure you. Just that I don't regard the later seasons as having phenomenal animation. They got much better, but I don't want to see the next series undergo such a learning curve: bad in movie's inception to solid towards the end.

Nice choice, It would be interesting to see some of those jedi who survived plus some good storylines between those two periods.

Very cool. I'd like to see a live-action series like that of Game Of Thrones, but with more action and stunts.
