Star Wars: The Clone Wars is leaving…..

starwarscharacter

 

……Netflix on Mar.7th.I saw about 4 episodes of this and never really watched much more of it. I have, however, heard nothing but good things about the series in general and might try to binge watch it before it leaves Netflix for good.

There are 6 seasons in total there now.5 that originally aired on the Cartoon Network from 2008 on, and 1 season that had been produced before Disney pulled the plug on the series. I had remember reading at some point there had been hope that Netflix would pick it up for more seasons but, I suspect the newer Star Wars movies will deal with the live action Clone Wars but this particular series may even go the way of the Dark Horse comics and not be considered official Star Wars lore.

Star Wars meets Indiana Jones – Meet Pablo Hidalgo

pablo

 

This is probably one of the cooler articles I’ve read in the past few days. Imagine meeting someone who loves the Star Wars universe so much that they picked through frame by frame of the films and investigated who all the characters(both with speaking parts and not) and artifacts  were…..and what they did. Our very own intergalactic ANCESTRY.com if you will….

Pablo has released two Visual Dictionaries so far. One for THE FORCE AWAKENS and one for ROGUE ONE along with 8 other books on the history of  Star Wars looking at various niches involved in the making of the movies.

Thanks to Entertainment Weeklies “Behind the scenes on EW Radio for a very cool, unique interview.

Meet Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo, the Indiana Jones of ‘Star Wars’
