Today was Lucasfilm’s junket for the second Clone Wars season. Held at the Big Rock Ranch at Skywalker Ranch, the Clone Wars crew previewed the show’s second season and answered questions from the press. For all of the excitement, head to starwars.com for a chat with Dave Filoni and George Lucas, the official starwars.com blog, and photos here.

TFN’s loathing for the PT is all too frequent but I do like this banner they made for Talk Like A Pirate Day:
Usually, most of the Star Wars-related tweets on Twitter are well, garbage. But every now and then some gem surfaces. Here’s “geerfear” on the prequels:
Why is it that most of the CG FX in The Phantom Menace STILL look better than some of the stuff in brand new films, 10 years later?
Ian McDiarmid is fantastic in the ballet scene in Revenge of the Sith. (typos corrected)
That concludes my Week of Star Wars. Still great films all should see. Prequels get a way worse rep than they deserve. Watch em all.
It’s not exactly all-new stuff but if you enjoy collecting Japanese SW adaptations, check these out. As with most Japanese products, it’s not going to be at your local comics shop unless you live in Tokyo. However, I did buy some SW manga that was never published or imported into the U.S. from Amazon.co.uk a year or so ago.
*This week, you can pick up a Clone Commander handbook exclusively at Toys R Us with $30 purchase of SW merchandise.
*Keep a lookout for You Can Draw Clone Wars, the follow-up to the popular You Can Draw Star Wars book.
TFN has thoughtfully collected all of the current CW t.v. ads on one page! They’re all awesome!
This is video from yesterday’s presentation at D23. Based on the video and on the subsequent announcement on starwars.com, Star Tours II will feature more than podracing. It looks like it will feature a variety of locales! Can’t wait to learn more.
I saw on t.v. this morning that prominently features Mace Windu and found three more online. I’ve heard about a fifth new t.v. clip that focuses on Anakin but I’ve yet to see it.
Check out my LiveJournal with links.
Here ya go with #3:
I’ve also heard about a new ad running on Cartoon Network focusing on Anakin. I’m hoping some enterprising soul will load it on YouTube soon.
