Lucasfilm is now owned by Disney...

Well, Disney now owns the rights to Lucas Film. It has also been revealed that there will, in fact, be an Episode VII to come out in 2015 followed by Episodes VIII and IX coming in 2-3 year intervals after that. What are your thoughts on this new "partnership" and the new revelation of the continuation of the saga? I guess I'm ok with the Disney "partnership," however, I am extremely disappointed to see that Episodes VII-IX will be coming out.

I'm not sure if I've talked about this subject on this blog before, but I don't think these episodes would be necessary. I used to think it would be too hard to make, as well, with all of the comics and books taking place in those years to come. However, seeing how they do things in TCW animated series, I don't think they really care about EU unless it is major like The Old Republic or The Force Unleashed. And then there's always the fact that the actors are all old now... However, the movies are still proceeding, I fear the worst in  the years to come... It will take a lot to convince me to see them...

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Review! Episode 5.01

Finally getting started! :)
I'll be going back to my previous way of reviewing this time.
Pretty great episode! It wasn't the best, but good!
Overview: The quote was nice. I am partial against this episode because I don't believe Maul should have survived. I didn't like that the Twi'lek Jedi died right in the beginning! I was just wondering a few weeks ago actually, while watching Grievous Intrigue, if we would maybe see more of her this season. Guess that ruined that... The animation in this episode was good as always. The action was well done as well. I didn't really get them knocking everything over. But hey, they're Sith, they can do what ever they want, right? I think that Maul definitely regained his strength and abilities much too quickly, even for the darkside. And I feel like they degraded Maul from his former abilities. I also didn't understand why everyone thought that Maul and Savage were Jedi... Even Hondo! I loved Hondo's line "I'm so proud, but so betrayed." Made me laugh! The battle scene was very well done! And the duel was another epic one, not falling short of the previous duel in Revenge! Though that one was slightly better because Ventress survived, unlike Adi Gallia... She was one of my favorite Jedi. It was sad to see her go. I still couldn't believe that they would start the season with her death however... The final duel between Maul and Savage was one of the best! The moves each of the three pulled off were incredible! Kenobi with two lightsabers was amazing to see! I didn't care either way about Savage's arm. I was really happy to see Maul's leg get shot off later though! Hondo's lines are always the best: "Insolence? Ha! We are pirates! We don't even know what that means!" The show of Maul and Savage's vulnerabilities was great! Even the "great" Maul can't survive everything! Though I still wait for the day that peaceful canon can resume with the death of this monster. Obi-Wan must have his moment! Again remembering Ian Abercrombie by hearing the difference in the voice. However, I believe that they could have left out that line, or kept it the way it was, or whatever they changed it for. It most likely would have been better...
Story Line and Dialogue: I feel as though most of the time the writers have a hard time creating convincing dialogue and flowing story line. However, the episode was still well done and I enjoyed the story.
Disappointments: Well, one of my obvious disappointments is the return of Maul, but that's besides the point of this episode alone. I thought, again, that the dialogue was somewhat lacking. I also don't think it was a good idea to kill Gallia right off the bat, and I wish they wouldn't have at all. Again, I was disappointed that they threw in "They're just petty crooks" or whatever Palpatine said, with the new actor. I also wish the premier would have been an hour-long premier, but it was still good.
Conclusion: Overall the episode was great! Besides multiple canon issues and some lack in areas, the episodes was really great! It is definitely on the higher end of best Season Premiers, and it ranks 3rd in my favorite Season Premiers after Season 2 and Season 3! I rank this episode a 7/10. Be on the lookout for my review of the Onderon arc to come soon! Until then, MTFBWY!

Catching Up!

Well, I haven't been very active, as most of you probably know,
but I'm starting to get caught up with everything!
Just today I organized all of the posts into their proper pages.
Next will come my catch up on the reviews.
I'm pretty sure I'll be adding one for Revival, and then another
for the entire Onderon series.
Thanks for still staying loyal everyone!
Also, for any of you who like model car building or photography,
check out my new blog, Models and Photography!
These are two of my favorite hobbies and I can't wait to get started
with sharing them with all of you!

New Layout!

Hey everyone! What do you think of the new layout??
Let me know! I'd love to hear your opinion!
I thought I'd change up the design a little, since I have had it
the same since I started the blog...
Anyway, hope you guys like the new fonts,
colors, layout and background!
Not sure if I'm entirely done yet, but this is it for now! :)
By the way, everyone, I'm sorry for my inactivity!
I'm not sure if I'm going to be doing reviews this year, I guess I
could review the first episode, and then the next four(the on-going
four-part-arc) all together when they are over.
I'll definitely try! :)
Until next time, MTFBWYAlways!(:
