post Clone Wars gets theater date and tv channel home

February 13th, 2008

Turner broadcasting has acquired the TV rights of George Lucas’ upcoming CG-animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Lucasfilm Ltd., Warner Bros. Pictures and Turner Broadcasting System Inc. made the announcement Tuesday that new episodes of the Lucasfilm animation series will premiere on Cartoon Network in the autumn following its theatrical release on August 15, across the US. The series will later be rerun on TNT.

Lucas said, “I felt there were a lot more Star Wars stories left to tell. I was eager to start telling some of them through animation and, at the same time, push the art of animation forward.”

Lucasfilm has produced more than 30 new episodes of the series. They will premiere weekly on Turner’s networks.
