Let’s Enjoy Some Radical Star Wars Animated Bits!

These have been popping up as part of a project for Star Wars Kids and/or Galaxy of Adventures. Something like that. Suffice to say, they are radical as all heck!

Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader

Yoda vs. Count Dooku

Here’s hoping we get a bunch more of these. They’re just plain neat.

Check Out This Nifty Star Wars Thing!

The Internet is full of Star Wars things. Largely because people really like Star Wars, especially classic Star Wars. Well check out this nifty anime version!

Created by Dmitry Grozov, this is a rather nifty Star Wars thing. The animation is crisp, invoking that classic anime feel, while also being pure Star Wars. I daresay this might be the finest thing currently on the Internet.

For the Third Time, Let’s Underestimate a Star Wars Cartoon

Star Wars: Resistance is happening and I bet I’ll love it. But right now, I don’t care for it. I don’t like the animation style, and everything about it seems so…I dunno. I don’t want to say ‘bland’, more like ‘manufactured’. But that’s the same thing I thought about Star Wars: Rebels, and that turned out to be a nifty show.

I’m just going to keep underestimating these Star Wars cartoons, and then keep having my doubt laughed back into my face when the shows turn out to be good.

Our First Look at Star Wars: Resistance!

I’ve been a big fan of the animated Star Wars cartoons, even if I was hesitant to get into either Clone Wars or Rebels. I liked them both in the end. So the fact that I’m a touch leery about this first trailer for Star Wars: Resistance is probably a good sign.

I’ve never been a particular fan of that animation style. If the Resistance team wanted to go for a more anime look — which I think they’ve said — they should have gone the Voltron route, with traditional anime characters and then computer animated ships. I think that’d be a great look for Star Wars.

I’m also not 100% sold on this story, where the young, white, male protagonist is both a racing superstar and a hotshot Rebel pilot. But like I said, I was trepidatious about Rebels, so we’ll see!

More SDCC Trailers Give Us Doctor Who and a Really Bad Ninja Turtles

I am just one man, blogging, while also at my day job. There’s a very good chance I won’t get to everything that comes out this weekend from San Diego Comic-Con. But I can post a new trailer like anybody’s business! And these are a bunch that arrived last night!

First up, a proper teaser trailer for the new season of Doctor Who, starring Jodie Whittaker. I like this much better than the quickie we got earlier in the week. We get some actual Doctor in this one, some real personality.

Next up is a story trailer for the Spider-Man game coming to Playstation 4 on Sept. 7. Now that I actually own a Playtation 4, I’m actually very excited about this game. So any new look at what we’re going to get is exciting.

Even if it still runs the risk of being a bad game. We’ll see.

Another trailer we got is a look at the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I quite enjoyed that cartoon, and I guess enough fans did as well that Disney is bringing it back for another batch of brand new episodes!

Anything that gives us more Ahsoka Tano is good news to me! Even if the ultimate Ahsoka/Darth Vader showdown already exists.

Finally, we got another look at that new Ninja Turtles cartoon, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This first look also provides a couple minutes of actual episode. And I can honestly say I won’t be having anything to do with this show. It looks terrible.

That’s not to say I’m one of those bitter fans complaining about how this new show is killing my childhood. Not at all. I’m simply recognizing that this show is not meant for me, and therefore I won’t take part. The animation, the comedy, the entire style of the show is just not for me. But I wish everybody involved the best of luck and I hope their take on the Turtles is successful.

Be sure to keep returning to my blog today as I dutifully attempt to upload all of the trailers and news that I either can or care about.
