Very excited to see how they deal with Order 66 (which the preview video made it looked like they would) along with the return of Admiral Trench.

So it seems like Cartoon Network has an open slot for Young Justice to come back.

Only if this is some alternate continuity.

After all, the events leading right into Episode III were shown in animated form in the old Star Wars: Clone Wars series that predated the current series, and Order 66 was shown in Episode III.

So, unless they have Anakin and Obi-Wan out fighting in the galaxy at the same time that Anakin is killing Mace Windu and joining the Sith and Obi-Wan is

Personally, as a SW geek I could never get into The Clone Wars.  Was way too reckless with continuity (the timeline of the clone wars were WELL established down to the month and day practically before they now have to shoehorn 5 years of events into a 3 year war when they already had it full of events), not to mention retcons like the idea that Ryloth isn't tidally locked and what they did with the Mandalorians.

I always figured Ashoka would either die in Order 66, or she would be one of the first ones that Vader hunted down.  If it was possible to retcon her being at the Conclave at Kessle and being one of the gang of Jedi that tried to ambush Vader and failed miserably, I'd do that.

Ashoka not only lives, but becomes Anakin's bride.

This was George Lucas' original artistic direction, but due to the limitations of the 1970's he was unable to pull off an Anakin/Ashoka/Padme threeway. Now, however, the story can be told as originally envisioned, remastered in beautiful CGI.

By the looks of it, they will hint at the existence of Order 66.  Maybe a few clone troopers get triggered prematurely, like seen in the preview.  The actual implementation of Order 66 was already shown as part of Episode III.  So there's no chance of seeing that.

When?  They didn't really mention anything about the timelines of the Clone Wars in "Revenge of the Sith".  And all we ever saw of Mandalorians was Jango getting his head cut off, and Boba Fett, who did absolutely nothing in the OT.  So I don't see what couldn't be changed about them.

Order 66 was already "programmed" into each clone during their development.  They only had to wait for the call and only the Emperor could make that call by his voice alone.  Perhaps, like with any clone theory we see in movies (Multiplicity for example), there are a few defective products out there.

Over the course of the show, we've gotten to know certain clones pretty well, (Rex, Cody) not at all like in the movies where they were just blank slates. It would be pretty cool to see those guys experience Order 66, given all their adventures with the Jedi over the years.

You do realize that prior to The Clone Wars there had been a LOT of Star Wars continuity set between Episodes II and III, right?

As soon as Episode II came out in 2002, for the 3 years until Episode III in 2005 LucasFilm produced a massive amount of materials filling in the story of what happened between the episodes.

The centerpiece was Star Wars: Clone Wars, a 2 season animated series that aired on Cartoon Network between November 2003 and March 2005.  It opened with the Jedi taking command of the vast new army, and the finale was the opening phase of the Battle of Coruscant and the show concluded with Palpatine being kidnapped by the Separatists and Anakin and Obi-Wan running off to their fighters to begin pursuit.  It also had the first time the Republic encountered General Grievous (he was introduced in that show), and even had a scene what was VERY strongly implied to be the conception of Luke and Leia (after so long at war, Anakin is able to return to Coruscant and visit Padme for a day or so, and we see a shot of them in her bedroom together, and the lights go out.  Next time we see Padme, she's pregnant).

There were also video games set during that period (Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter, Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, Star Wars: Republic Commando, Star Wars: Battlefront, Star Wars: Battlefront II), and the standing rules of Star Wars continuity say that the plots of those games are canonical.

There were also many novels set during the Clone Wars that were released before The Clone Wars series came out:  Shatterpoint,Legacy of the Jedi,The Cestus Deception,MedStar I: Battle Surgeons,MedStar II: Jedi Healer,Jedi Trial,Yoda: Dark Rendezvous,Republic Commando: Triple Zero andRepublic Commando: True Colors, all of which were telling what happened in that time many years before TCW came out.

There was also the comic book series Star Wars: Republic (which depicted the Clone Wars between issues 49 to 83, when it became Star Wars: Empire after the end of the war), most notably the scar on Anakin's face he had in Episode III was from an issue of these comics.
There were also the limited-run Star Wars: Obsession and Star Wars: Jedi comic series that told part of the Clone Wars story.

All this was designed up front circa 2002 to tell a consistent, at least more-or-less coherent picture of the timeline of the Clone Wars.  Then Lucas wants to create ANOTHER animated series and shoehorn it in to the continuity.  For this to happen the entire series would have to fit in between two episodes of the previous series.  Adding 5 seasons of The Clone Wars to what was already there makes the Clone Wars look a little like the M*A*S*H version of the Korean War with 11 years of events shoehorned into 3 years of timeline.

It seems silly to argue what's "canon" and not when it's all being made up on the fly anyway. Star Trek canon never includes the novels but it does include some of the comic books, at least the ones in the alternative timestream which isn't considered canon at all to many fans. It seems sillly to worry about a retcon of stuff that was all just made up by a lot of different people in a three year timespan.

It could easily be argued a lot of events in Clone Wars happen at the same time, to different characters in different parts of the galaxy. There's no reason to assume one TV season equals an actual year of Star Wars time, what sort of oddball logic is that?
 
2013-10-13 02:14:24 PM  
And why is the Clone Wars only three years long anyway? Because that's how long it was between movies?

You do know these are just stories, right? Cause Anakin sure grew up fast  between 1999 and 2002.

Star Wars canon has always been a bit loose.  The movies take precedence, but other than that, it's up in the air.  The novels are only canon until they're contradicted, same with the video games.

Cody had no problem shooting at Obi-Wan in Episode III.  Given the scant dialogue the pair had in the actual film, a casual observer could believe they had a connection between II and III and saw one another as friends in arms.  Then when it came time for Order 66, Cody did as he was told.

This is not so much as a gift for the fans than it is "okay, we'll finish off the contracts we have with Cartoon Network before they sue the sh*t out of us" thing.

I had no idea Cody was in Episode III. I don't remember any of the clones getting a name or personality save for the original. (and his personality was questionable).

Cody (CC-2224) was the clone commander on Utapau, the one who caught Obi-Wan's lightsaber and gave it back to him, then immediately ordered the cannons to open fire on him when he got Order 66 moments later.

I never got the love for this show. Yes, the CGI textures were great, but the faces were always terrible. Green Lantern had it down pat. That was a great show, and the CGI worked well b/c of the weird alien sci-fi stuff throughout. The new Batman show is a goddamn crime, especially b/c they canned Green Lantern for it.
