We gave it an F

The Lucas camp is extremely tight-lipped with details about this animated Star Wars spin-off, but here’s what we know so far: The film will serve as a setup for an upcoming Cartoon Network series, and both take place in the period between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, back when Anakin Skywalker was still one of the good guys, ”the ultimate hero of the clone war and a great Jedi Knight,” as director Dave Filoni puts it. The film will also introduce Asoka, a female Jedi who, according to Filoni, ”has to hold her own with Anakin and Obi-Wan, which is a tough path for any person.” (August 15)
