Star Wars franchise Keeps Cranking Out Tired Retreads

The next movie is "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" This is a dull fully animated version of the now famous Science Fiction trilogy, new characters are added for the sole purpose of income from toy sales. The plot was too simplistic for a Star Wars film because the whole entire movie is about Anakin and his new padawan, Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) trying to rescue Jabba the Hutt's son. Yoda ( Tom Kane) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (James Arnold Taylor) seem as after thoughts they have so few scenes in the movie. The fight scenes definitely pulled the movie up from being utter garbage, but so few scenes worth mentioning here. The Jedi are being blamed for the kidnapping of Jabba's son, so they feel the only way to convince Jabba of their innocence is to find and return the child. This cartoon crawls in spots, the animation looks second tier and the vocals all come out but they don't stand out. Once Skywalker and Ahsoka rescue the child the pair are tasked with returning him to Jabba. This seems far fetched and silly, the movie is garnered to pre teens and young children, I couldn't get into this movie and I am a HUGE Star Wars fan. I give Star Wars The Clone Wars a 2, and on my avoidance scale it gets a 2 as well. Sorry George.
