Star Wars: The Clone Wars

98 min. minutes | Rated PG

Delving into the creatively bankrupt timeframe that he's already exhausted with Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, executive producer George Lucas has assigned director Dave Filoni with inventing a plot in the middle of a story that everybody already knows. The awkward results: Jabba the Hutt's son gets kidnapped, and Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi (along with Anakin's chirpy new apprentice, Ahsoka) are tasked with the rescue. There are rumblings about how this huttnapping affects the overall fate of the galaxy, but none of it really matters; The Clone Wars' creative team is more interested in exactly how goddamn annoying they can make the warbling tadpole that is Jabba's son (tragically, he's referred to as a "huttlet"), or how many dumbshit nicknames they can come up with (Skywalker becomes "Sky Guy," R2-D2 is "Artooey"), or how they can try to cover up the obvious fact that The Clone Wars is just the first three episodes of the upcoming TV show, clumsily glued together.
