There's just over a month left before Star Wars: The Clone Wars comes back, and Lucasfilm sent us this new "sizzle reel," featuring tons of light-saber action, clone pep talks, and... is that Greedo the Elder?

Okay, I know it's for kids, but YAAAY! I like the clone wars. It's a fun little show, nice action, an interesting artstyle, and of course, an excuse for more Kit Fisto and Plo Koon.

It's interesting to see that they seem to be heading into darker story lines with the season, which is a great for a kid's show, and it's something Star Wars has always done well for younger audiences - for me, the rebel's crushing defeat at Hoth was really the first time as a young kid that I'd seen that showed that sometimes the heroes don't always win. That sort of storytelling can be a groundbreaking moment of realisation for children. I want to see more defeats for the republic, more Jedi sacrificing themselves in last stands, a step towards the latter half of the war where pyrrhic victories are if anything more common than actual ones. It'd be quite interesting to see that pan out.

Any way, with the removal of my seriousness hat I can now go 'OMGOMGOMG WAS THAT SHAAK TI!? WOOOOOO!' =D
