New Star Wars: The Clone Wars Clip - A Sunny Day in the Void

A new clip has been released for the upcoming Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode, titled “A Sunny Day in the Void.” The episode will be the last clone wars episode before the holidays, and will follow R2-D2, Colonel Gascon, and the other droids as their shuttle crash lands on a desolate planet after being hit by a comet.

The ragtag group of droids must then make their way across a bewildering expanse of emptiness in order to carry out their mission. “A Sunny Day in the Void,” will be airing this Saturday, December 8th at 9:30am ET/PT on Cartoon Network.

Fanimation: From Pixar to Richard Sargent robots asking where’s Wall-E

Fanimation: From Pixar to Richard Sargent robots asking where's Wall-E

Throughout the history of Hollywood, there’s been an incredible collection of robots. C-3PO and R2-D2 from Star Wars, Bender from Futurama, Rosie from the Jetsons, countless Tarnsformers and Go-Bots, etc. Hopewell Studio’s Richard Sargent, through a process that must have seemed bionic, actually sat down to draw a collage of nearly 200 bots, posing together in a classic group shot, and hiding one of animation’s favorite bots: Wall-E from the recent Disney and Pixar film. It’s a Where’s Wall-E game, just like the classic Where’s Waldo ones. Sure, it’s awesome to hunt for the little guy, but even more enjoyable just going through the entire project, looking for all the other robots you remember. In fact, there’s even a blank version so that you can number your guesses to see how many you can name. Give it a try!

The Padawan Menace brings LEGO Star Wars to Cartoon Network

When a routine Jedi Academy field trip is turned into some sort of cosmic adventure, we figure this has to be the makings of some awesome new Star Wars bit. Apparently, LEGO thought the same thing, as they’re currently working on a made-for-TV special movie based in the LEGO Star Wars universe called The Padawan Menace. Master Yoda leads a group of Jedi kids through the Senate chambers when the aging Jedi sense a disturbance in the Force. As he dashes to save the Republic, he quickly realizes he isn’t alone, and is instead giving a space tour on a more dangerous note! Meanwhile, everyone’s favorite droids C-3PO and R2-D2 are in charge of those left behind. It takes an all out effort to keep things under control – and even more so with the Sith reveal their plans!

Cartoon Network's Star Wars: The Clone Wars readies season 4

Clone Wars season 3 might be over, but the fun of the year, and especially the finale, is still fresh in everyone’s mind. And though there is still half a year (or more!) until Cartoon Network is ready to kick off Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 4, the folks behind the scenes are already gearing things up! What’s that mean for our viewing enjoyment? Specifically, more intense battles of the Clone War between the Republic and Separatists. As the timeline continues to evolve the hidden chapters set forth by the movies in the Star Wars universe, we’re seeing more of a true realization of the Clone Wars characters’ impact. And with that movie-like relation in mind, producers have promised more three-part story arcs in future episodes, giving more than an hour for each story to progress. So get ready, Jedis; the best is yet to come.

When it comes to the world of animation, Lego is no n00b. The world famous building block toy has had a number of animated segments, whether its commercials for their products like Lego Ben 10, rendered cut scenes in video games like Lego Batman, or short-form animated films like the Lego Star Wars adventure starring R2-D2, or even their own productions like The Adventures of Clutch Powers. Now, Warner Bros. Pictures has signed with Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the folks behind Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, to bring the Lego movie to the big screen. The hybrid mix of live-action and CG animation film is still without a storyline or theater date, but we’ll be sure to …build details soon!
