Episode #1 - Ambush

Yoda takes on an entire droid army in the season premiere of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, an all-new animated series premiering at 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3, on Cartoon Network.

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 strategic planet and forge a treaty for the Republic.

The episode is directed by David Bullock (Justice League: The New Frontier) from a script by Steve Melching (The Batman). Dave Filoni is supervising director, George Lucas is the series' creator and serves as executive producer, and Catherine Winder is producer.

Another useless thread to build the forum up.

At least they're kicking the series off with a bang, I wonder how Ventress will go against Yoda?

Doesn't look too bad really. Very children's cartoony, but much cooler than what Mace Windu did when he jumped like the Hulk.

Why does Lucas have to make Star Wars so childish now? I just watched episode 1 and 2 again and they're a complete joke compared to 3 - 6. And now the Clone Wars movie and this. Jesus

At least the action scenes look alright

RotJ had Ewoks.

Anyone who says Star Wars wasn't childish... needs to have their heads checked.

And the reason why Star Wars is childish is because children are the primary demographic, not you and I.

Sure it had Ewoks...but that alone doesn't make a childish movie. Episode 1 - 3 were aimed specifically at children. Episode 4 - 6 weren't...they are made so children as well as adults can take something from them. 1-3 has flashy pictures.

I disagree about your view on episode 3: the first half-hour/hour (dunno where it ends exactly) was also childish with R2 and the battledroids

I'm not sure the censors believe that about OT/PT; the OT is much more suitable as a children's work in many ways.

But it was less aimed solely at children. It was an adventure movie for young audience that didn't exclude an older audience. Ep1 & 2 seems to be more directed solely to a very young audience.

yeah, watching a man burn (after being mangled) while shouting how much they hate someone was very childish

roll eyes (sarcastic)

I love the OT, and it will always be better than the PT, but please, SW was and is for kids

which part of "the first half-hour/hour" is confusing you?

For what I see you either:
saw just the first 30 min and not the rest of the movie...
...or you're saying the whole movie was childish (and probably ruined for you) just because of a 2-3 min sequence...

which one is it? hmm? roll eyes (sarcastic)

Six wasn't, in number 2 we see a child holding his father's severed head in his hands. The most child-friendly of the three was TPM with lil' Anakin, a Jar-Jar with more than ten lines, and the Gungans. The story gets progressively darker as it moves along, up to the point where people are being incinerated alive and younglings are getting diced up and sith lords are getting beheaded by the main character...

erm

Anyone who says that the first 30 minutes of RotS was kid friendly obviously didn't pay attention, otherwise they'd remember Dooku getting his hands chopped off, than his head in cold blood...

As for the story. The PT's storyline is more tragic and complicated than the OT's, so I'm not really sure what you're trying to say...

The clone wars cartoon is ridiculous, though. I actually think that if Lucas wanted to protray the droids as anonymous, soulless bad guys he'd try to not give them quircky, lovable (to a five year old) personalities.
