Star Wars Action News - Episode 136

Posted by Chuck | April 01, 2008 at 07:43 AM EDT |

    They did it for Episode I, they did it for Episode II, they did it for Episode III, they do it for every exclusive at cons, and most famously they did it to see George Lucas at Celebration III. Yes, that's right, I'm talking about Star Wars fans forming lines. This year we see what no one expected--Star Wars back in theaters with the Clone Wars animated movie on August 15, 2008 and the Star Wars Action News team have started their own lines. In New York, Dallas, Cincinatti, Mesa, AZ, and Springfield, IL Star Wars Action News staff have broken out their tents, sleeping bags, cellphones and laptops to begin the four and a half month wait for Clone Wars to open.
