"Star Wars: The Clone Wars"

I have mixed feelings about this animated Star Wars film (Fox, 8.15), based on the popular series of cartoon shorts from Cartoon Network. Embedding the trailer from YouTube has been "disabled by request" for some reason, so if you want to see it, click here.

I saw the trailer in front of Speed Racer a couple of weeks ago, and the general audience reaction, me included, seemed to be a collective WTF? I just can't get behind that animation style, especially on a big screen. The fact that the preview starts out with Yoda saying "Kidnapped, Jabba the Hutt's son has been" doesn't bode well.

Who knows, it may end up being better than the prequels themselves. But right now, my interest level is "ehhhh."

Yeah, this doesn't look good. At all. I mean, I never watched The Clone Wars (probably should've), but even then this is just ridiculously unnecessary.
