New Clone Wars Posters

It’s obvious that these posters for Clone Wars are trying quite hard to look like classic Star Wars posters. And to some extent they are successful. The connection is obvious and the style immediately recognizable.

But for me that just makes it even more painfully clear that this isn’t a real Star Wars movie. The similar styles force me to compare the cartoonish look with the usual Star Wars visuals, and quite frankly the visuals of the animation don’t really measure up.

Perhaps I’m just biased against the posters for this film because I really don’t like the whole idea of releasing this hybrid movie/series thing. But these feel like mere shadows of something great.

    I absolutely agree. The original series had such an interesting look, even though it was 2D. Taking that look to CGI just makes it appear like a half-hearted effort instead of a stylistic choice.

    What are you – total douchbags. Star Wars belongs to 1 Man with Vision, who the fuckk (2 K’s for emphasis) are you. His name is George Lucas. Half Hearted you must be joking – I taught myself how to build and shade models in programs like Maya and 3D Studio Max, ARE YOU ARTISTS, ARE YOU WRITERS, ARE YOU ANYTHING!!! This movie looks totally awesome and so do the final posters that ended up on the streets. Point is – get over it GL put his name on it so it is part of the E-X-T-E-N-D-E-D Universe.

    Thank you – Eat it and Weep – JOD

    so Lucas finally got to make (or a least approve of) a whole Star Wars movie after his love for CGI… looks fun though

    Almost all of the things you assert is astonishingly precise and that makes me wonder why I had not looked at this with this light before. Your article truly did turn the light on for me as far as this subject goes. Nonetheless there is just one position I am not necessarily too comfy with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the central idea of your position, allow me see exactly what all the rest of your readers have to say.Well done.
