CELEBRATING THE 'CLONE WARS' MICRO-SERIES
I've been sorry to recently hear that LUCASFILM have now been kind of disowning the great work that animation giant Genndy Tartakovsky and his team did for the CARTOON NETWORK's CLONE WARS micro-series of a few year back, in favour of their own 2008 onwards show, even going so far as to removing certain elements and characters from it that had been previously recognised and mentioned in their Official Expanded Universe timeline and characters table (I guess any kind of future Blu-ray has also just been shot down in flames, too!).

Those two early series show the excitement, action and adventure of the Prequel STAR WARS saga in its purest form yet during the 2005 lead up to the release of EPISODE III, of which there are a few fans out there who actually prefer them to the movies, and remain as enjoyable as ever. Why both series can't just sit proudly on the LUCASFILM shelf I don't know. STAR WARS AFICIONADO, however, will certainly not forget them, and will continue to celebrate such a brilliantly conceived show, brought to life by a dedicated group of industry professionals who were also tremendous STAR WARs fans...
