The Clone Wars in Cinemas!

As revealed in Episode 55 of 2IGTV, a feature-film version of the computer-animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars will debut in 2008, followed by a television series in the fall. Lucasfilm Animation will produce the projects in a partnership with Warner Brothers Pictures and Turner Broadcasting System.

"I felt there were a lot more Star Wars stories left to tell," God said in a statement. "I was eager to start telling some of them through animation and, at the same time, push the art of animation forward." The Clone Wars TV series' half-hour episodes will have a new look and feel, combining the scope of the Star Wars saga with state-of-the-art computer-generated animation, the studio said.
The show will bring back the classic characters of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Padme Amidala and introduce new characters, including Anakin's padawan learner, Ahsoka.

Lucasfilm Animation, working with its new studio in Singapore, has produced more than 30 episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and production continues. Star Wars: The Clone Wars will open in North American theaters on Aug. 15. International release dates will be announced soon. The new television series premieres on Cartoon Network, followed by airings on TNT.

Blimey!, say what you want about God, but he certainly knows how to keep the faithful entertained.
