2 Jedi and a Baby

"LUKE: You fought in the clone wars?
BEN: Yes, I was once a Jedi Knight the same as your father.
LEIA: General Kenobi, years ago you served my father in the clone wars.
These quotes lit a fire under our curiosity, and it burned for nearly 30 years. Now the excitement and anticipation can be satisfied by...
...the further adventures of little orphan Annie!
CLONE WARS boasts exciting space dogfights and intense light saber duels. But these things do not make up for where it fails miserably. Nowhere in this movie do we see the echoes of the great stories hinted in A NEW HOPE. Nowhere do we see a camaraderie develop between Bail Organa ("years ago you served my father") and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Since 20th Century Fox did not release this film (can't say I blame them), the movie opens with the Warner Brothers logo and without the signature Alfred Newman prelude. There is no written prologue that retreats into the distance of space. The animation is rather wooden. This would have been acceptable had the film been made by a studio with a more limited budget. But it was made by George Lucas who has money coming out of his ears! Financially, there is no reason why THE POLAR EXPRESS should look better than CLONE WARS. But even VEGGIE TALES looks better than CLONE WARS.
The plot of CLONE WARS is that the Jedi are summoned to rescue Jabba the Hutt's kidnapped son. That is the plot of the movie called CLONE WARS. Can someone please enlighten me as to what that has to do with the Clone Wars?
Jabba junior who inherits the nickname,"Stinky" is much more annoying than ewoks and Jar Jar Binks put together. There is even an utterly failed attempt at humor by pointing out that Junior the Hutt made a poopie. (No, I am not making that up.) Which, incidentally, is how we arrive at his cute nickname. Jabba the Hutt's uncle plays a role in the film as well. Ziro the Hutt does nothing to add to the entertainment value of this heap except to make the viewer wonder whether or not he was based on Truman Capote, for there is an uncanny resemblance.
The music in CLONE WARS almost never sounds like any of the scores composed by John Williams. Sometimes it sounded like a rock band and sometimes like classical Chinese folk music.
I'm sick and tired of people defending ewoks and Jar Jar Binks by saying it's in there to appeal to the kids. Where have you been the last 30 years? It's STAR WARS! The name alone has kid-appeal and always has. It has more kid appeal than Fess Parker's Davy Crockett, for crying out loud. And it had it long before an ewok ever scratched his ear or a Gungan ever ruined a movie. You might as well complain about Sesame Street not having enough kid appeal.
In a word: Stinky."

"I bought this for my 6 year old son who loves Star Wars and the Clone Wars cartoons. He is always asking me to let him watch the Clone Wars on TV but it is on past his bedtime. This helps satisfy his need to see the TV series. He loves it and I think its very imaginative."
