Because there weren’t enough Star Wars movies

This summer will bring an animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars to the big screen:

The feature film, chronicling the wartime adventures of a pre-Darth Vader Anakin Skywalker and mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi, takes place immediately before the events in 2005′s Revenge of the Sith. It serves as a kickoff for the half-hour animated TV series planned for fall on Cartoon Network and TNT.

“I felt there were a lot more Star Wars stories left to tell,” creator George Lucas said in a statement. “I was eager to start telling some of them through animation.”

I found the accompanying graphic disconcerting, truthfully—to me it looks like a video game. Although, I suppose that may be the point.

Then again, I am unbothered by movie sequences in which you can see the strings attached to the space ships… so I may not be the best judge.
