MMM Commentary: Star Wars – Clone Wars, Volume 1
After a few quiet years, 2008 was the time when Star Wars became once more ahem animated In recognition of the Clone Wars film (is it a film?) and TV show MMM turns its eyes to a long time ago in an animation studio far far away: the original Clone Wars (gee that name turns up a lot) series for the Cartoon Network.
In three to five minute bites, the check-shirted One and his acolytes filled in the blanks on the attritic war between the Republic and the Separatists when Anakin wasn’t such a bad guy, IG-88 was still a steel sapling and Obi-Wan was trying out the latest in armour-cape combinations.
Being an MMM Star Wars commentary there is plenty of discussion of the nature of the animation, the hero’s story arc and the logistical importance of the Clone Wars story line. Of course there’s time for topics like: Who does Dooku root for in battle? Why don’t the Jedi just push planets into the Sun and is it racist that the most dangerous jobs always fall to Mace.
Another year, another Star Wars project. Join us.
