Did You Miss Star Wars: The Legacy Revealed?

Then this is your opportunity! The History Channel will be providing an encore showing of Star Wars: The Legacy Revealed, a 2-hour special exploring why the emotional impact of the Star Wars Saga remains as relevant as ever.

Through interviews with politicians, academics, journalists and critics, we'll learn about the similarities between the tales of Luke Skywalker and King Arthur and Buddha and Yoda. We'll see how Star Wars' intensely compelling stories - borrowed from diverse traditions, from Greek mythology and American westerns to the Bible and even Vaudeville - force us to explore some of the biggest questions of our time.

Uncover the Legend Sunday, June 3rd at 8pm and watch how Lucas re-introduced the world to the modern myth.

Guy Lagacé's Climactic Battlescenes

Today I have updated Guy Lagacé's Climactic Battlescenes with another of his scenes. This was the twelfth in the series for this section. Remember that these images were his vision of scenes from movies that had not been created. This image was Guy's take on what Jango Fett would look like for Episode II. It came out very well! Be sure to also see other great artists in the Featured Artists section. Enjoy!

Update: I had been missing several pieces Guy Lagacé's art but out of the blue he contacted me! I had not heard from him since 2003. Guy has been gracious enough to provide all of his work from 1999 on. It also includes a few previously unseen pieces that feature his take on Episode III. It was great re-connecting with my old friend and I will get these pieces loaded in each gallery slowly but surely.

3D Clone Wars- Information, Teaser Trailer, and Images

As you have probably heard, the Official Star Wars Site has provided a Teaser Trailer for the upcoming 3D Clone Wars Cartoon. Today I have added another sixty-one pictures to the 3D Clone Wars Section that were taken from the trailer. You can find this new section in the Images menu.

The new Clone Wars Cartoon episodes will be 22 minutes long. In the new series, there will not be a “Justice League of Jedi” as supervising director Dave Filoni puts it – the Jedi can’t do anything more than Luke, Mace, Qui-Gon, and Obi-Wan from the films. They can be vulnerable but are intelligent – they need to think themselves out of situations. It will show how war was a challenge for the Jedi to fight, and how the moral principles they clung to began to disintegrate.

General Grievous will have a cough. When asked whether any of Grievous’ past will be revealed, the only response is, “You’ll be happy.” Filoni also says that when it comes to big legacy characters like Grievous, Lucas is consulted directly. The series will debut in Fall 2008.

More new information and images are sure to start popping up now that the trailer has been released, so be on the lookout for more soon!
