Well the reviews are starting to come in for the new Star Wars animated film and they are not all that great. Personally, I was none too impressed by the trailers. This animation is doing nothing for me. It looks like the video clips in the video games but not quite as good. Not sure why Lucas decided to go with this choppy new look (the cartoon networks mini mini-series was done better than this feature film). An article in the Reading Eagle dared to compare this style to anime. I donâ€™t think they could have been more wrong. Maybe they just donâ€™t know what the anime style of animation really is or not. But this is not anime; it is video game animation.
Yes I will be going to see it. The geek in me propels me to do so, but I am not expecting too much especially now that I am reading reviews, which are pretty much telling the things I was already feeling about it. I hate to say it but as for the sci-fi animated films coming out this summer, Fly Me to the Moon might be the best of the bunch. And if I am going to spend the money to go to the new IMAX Theater here in Reading it might as well be for the 3D flick. Iâ€™ll hit one of the other theaters for a matinee for Star Wars Clone Wars.
Will the animated series due out this fall on the Cartoon Network be the same crappy animation?
