So... is anyone going to see this? I think I will wait for the DVD later this year.

Same. I will definitely watch on DVD or maybe the $1.50 movies. Not paying full price.

Looks pretty cool based off the trailers but Star Wars being a cartoon is kind of an interesting concept to the point I'd wait for it to rent off Netflix. I've always thought Star Wars would be awesome as an anime for some reason.

Waiting for DVD here. My guess is that they're trying to hook a new generation of kids in the saga, so I'm expecting this movie to be rather childish. Kind of funny that they chose the most gruesome era of Star Wars to turn into the youth-oriented, CGI movie.

You don't think that they did an animation so the production costs wouldn't be as high?

Honestly, if anything, I may have been more interested if they told the stories of what happens after the Return of the Jedi. Why not just create a trilogy after those events instead of retreading the same old story over and over again?

I think there were plans to do the post Return of the Jedi saga in a three movie trilogy. Haven't heard anything about it lately though.

I do think they did animation to target kids (they didn't exactly go for the lifelike look, did they?), and I agree that the three stories after Return of the Jedi with Thrawn are pure win. I would totally go see them - if Lucas had nothing to do with them.

yeah...those books are awesome.

for those that are really interested in the Star Wars saga, there are tons of Extended Universe books. i've read probably only 1/2 of them (if that) but i just got burnt out on them, i think partly because the level of writing seems more aimed at a younger audience and i just dont have that much time to read.

The Thrawn Trilogy is an excellent read, so is Vector Prime but then there are about 10-20 books that follow that arc
