New Star Wars movie in theatres August 08 12 Feb, 2008, 11:14 / 9 comments

Well, if a new Indy movie's fair game for Mojo, then so too is a new Star Wars movie, right? RIGHT?

As posted on starwars.com
A new era of Star Wars entertainment begins in 2008 when Star Wars: The Clone Wars, from creator George Lucas, premieres as an all-new feature film in August, followed by the television series debut in the fall...

Produced by Lucasfilm Animation, Star Wars: The Clone Wars takes audiences on incredible new Star Wars adventures, combining the legendary storytelling of Lucasfilm with an eye-popping, signature animation style. Star Wars: The Clone Wars will open in North American theaters Friday, August 15. International release dates will be announced soon.
So, Peter Hirshman, how's about that Clone Wars era Star Wars space sim? Totally Games'd be up for it!
However, Larry Holland is still here and that's the important part, since he's the vision behind the series. Of the people that worked on any of the Star Wars games, only Larry, Robin, myself, and Kevin remain.

I'd love to work on another Star Wars space sim if the opportunity presented itself. But that is not for us to decide, unfortunately. The game market for space sims have dried up and with it the money.

Huh, Peter? Huh? You know what you said before is bullshit.

    I say bah, as well. Doing Ep. 3.5 (rather than 2.5, as this appears to be) would make MUCH better sense.

    I may be wrong, but I believe the forthcoming (2009) live-action TV series covers that time period.

    This is pretty short notice. You can tell while they were making the TV series they up and decided to make the pilot a feature film. It'll probably be Direct-to-DVD material.

    When will they understand? The market dried up because of shit games, make a good game and the potential base fans and money is ALL yours. I'm tired of hearing, we cant make that kind of game, theres no market for it. Well make a good game and people will play.

    Bet it'll be better than the other prequel films.

    I also bet it'll be in about 3 cinemas and not go outside the US. If it does, it certainly won't come to Oxford.

    Bah, Episode III was good.

    Apparently it got confirmed for UK release even before the US! Still just probably be London and Manchester though.

    Oh, come on. It's Star Wars, the biggest cultural phenomenon, like, ever. The movie isn't going to be playing a couple of art-house theatres the the Guilford Community Hall.

    True, but this is a Star Wars TV show primarily.
