More On That Clone Wars T.V. Movie Event

March 17, 2010

Remember the mysterious “Clone Wars T.V. Movie Event” that was in some Hasbro schedule for 2010? It looks like it’s an all-new “movie” that will launch Season Three this fall. Club Jade has stumbled upon a solicitation for a book based on the t.v. movie, “Defenders of the Republic.” If you love clones, then this t.v. movie will make your year, because that’s who this is about.

News From Last Weekend’s MegaCon

March 16, 2010

TFN posted a report from last weekend’s MegaCon convention in Orlando. In a nutshell, VIP tickets for Celebration V should be available next week and seem to be VERY limited, the live action show is still a “work in progress,” the SW saga on Blu-Ray will happen in 1-5 years (wtf??!!), and they’re looking for the “right technology” to re-release SW in 3D. However, it looks like there will be a digital showing of TESB at Celebration V.

TFN Interviews Karen Miller

March 13, 2010

TFN ran a short interview with Star Wars author Karen Miller, whose latest PT/CW-era adventure Stealth: Gambit is out now (which I’m also currently reading). Unfortunately, she won’t be writing more SW novels for a while after the second Stealth book. Read why along with why her first impressions of Ahsoka were wrong and what she loves about Obi-Wan and Anakin.

Shhh, Next Week’s Clone Wars On iTunes Now

March 13, 2010

Don’t want to wait for Friday for your next Clone Wars fix? Download the new episode “Senate Murders” right now off of iTunes for $1.99. iTunes apparently made a mistake posting it today, given that the original air date set for “Senate Murders” was March 12 (now it’s March 19). Get it quick before they take it down!

New Stride Rite Shoes For Kids

March 10, 2010

starwars.com posted a preview of three new shoes by Stride Rite due to hit stores this summer.

Kids (and other fans with really small feet) can choose from Captain Rex, General Grievous, and Darth Vader. These are so cool, I wish Adidas could make them for adults! After all, I wear a women’s size 9…

Best Line In The PT?

March 9, 2010

Every now and then someone will post a worthwhile discussion thread in TFN’s forum. At least it is until the usual bashers show up to ruin it.

This one discusses favorite lines from the prequels. Throw in your own .02 here if you want ;).
