Here’s another curious programming decision from TEN. The brand spankin’ new animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars from Lucasfilm Animation is coming later this month.
But despite a legion of Star Wars fans, it has been given a timeslot of 12pm Saturday November 22.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog called preview footage “likely the most photo-realistic animated TV series ever produced.” It was the most-watched series premiere on the Cartoon Newtork ever.
The series, which premiered on October 3rd in the US, was launched with a feature film which was released in August. Creator George Lucas promises “there will be at least 100 episodes produced.”
The voice cast includes Matt Lanter, Seth Green, Anthony Daniels, Olivia d’Abo, James Arnold Taylor and Tom Kane.
It launches with a double of its half hour episodes.
Yoda takes on an entire droid army in the first of two episodes that mark the season premiere of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, the all-new CG animated TV series.
In the first episode, “Ambush,” Jedi Master Yoda and three clone troopers must face off against Count Dooku’s dreaded assassin Asajj Ventress and the massive Separatist droid army to prove the Jedi are strong enough to protect a strategicplanet and forge a treaty for the Republic.
The Jedi face a devastating new Separatist weapon that’s in the hands of General Grievous in the second episode of the season premiere.
In “Rising Malevolence,” an attack by an unimaginably destructive weapon aboard a mysterious
warship leaves Jedi Master Plo Koon and his clone troopers struggling to survive until Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano can find them. They discover that the ship is piloted by Grievous himself.
