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.

Something Of Value On Twitter

September 19, 2009

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?

It’s not exactly all-new stuff but if you enjoy collecting Japanese SW adaptations, check these out.

However, I did buy some SW manga that was never published or imported into the U.S. from a year or so ago.

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.
