In an announcement released earlier today, The Cartoon Network declared the May 1st launch of Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Decoded…
Coming off of the record-setting first season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Cartoon Network announced today it will premiere Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Decoded, a full slate of 22 enhanced episodes from season one of the CG-animated series from creator George Lucas and Lucasfilm Animation. Using text windows to provide in-the-moment insights into all aspects of the sweeping galactic conflict-from trivia to background on characters and storylines-Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Decoded enhances each episode with exclusive content created by the Lucasfilm Animation talent responsible for the show itself.
So, essentially this is pop-up videos for Star Wars? Okay. I can groove to that.
But it really oughta be in the Adult Swim time slot so that the pop-ups can be a bit more cutting. For instance every time Jar-Jar is featured a blurb could pop-up such as this:
Jar-Jar offered the motion to render emergency powers unto Palpatine, thus beginning the rise of the Empire. The deaths of hundreds of thousands of Alderanians lie on his head. Isn’t Jar-Jar funny?
How about whenever Padme appears on screen…?
Padme knowingly married a mass murderer and later died of a broken heart. Padme had it coming, didn’t she? Stupid Padme.
And whenever Anakin has a scene…?
Remember when you thought it would be cool to know who Darth Vader was before the mask? It’s true. Ignorance *is* bliss.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Decoded premieres Friday, May 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT only on Cartoon Network.
