Clones Are Coming In August...


It appears that George Lucas has decided to go with the broadcaster of the original "Clone Wars" series as it was announced that the Cartoon Network will air the new series this fall and it will then be rerun on TNT. Before the show debuts on cable it'll have a theatrical release in North American theaters on Friday, August 15th. The Internation release dates are being finalized as we speak.

It looks as though Warner has beat out Fox and the Mouse for the bragging rights to the series. That's fine... there is still a live-action series that should be coming out about a year after the animated series. This will be a chance for Iger to show those "post" WGA Strike negotiating skills and convince Lucas that Disney would be the perfect home for the show. There just might be a hole in the ABC fall schedule for 2009.

Now, about that theme park tie-in...

Why do you have stuff about Star Wars on a Disney fansite?

Uhm. Dude, Indy and Star Wars are featured prominently in Disney parks around the world and Lucas and Disney have had a cozy relationship for decades. This site is what Honor likes to talk about in relation to Disney and Star Wars relates quite a bit I'd have to say.
