    Tales of the New Republic – The Answers... Sort of

    Posted by Chuck | May 27, 2007 at 06:32 PM ET |

         There's been alot of buzz over the animated series photos and trailer showing up here, and during the Star Wars Animated TV Behing-The-Scenes panel we got answers! Supervising Director Dave Filoni was presented with the question about the legitimacy of this site and the video and said that they have nothing to do with it and it is completely fan made. Well, let's hope that we can see more from this, because they have done a fantastic job! However, after seeing the newest trailer on the big screen at the event, the animation is nothing compared to what Lucas Animation is doing!

Hands down, this was the most exciting event of CIV, and they were given permission to show this trailer from George Lucas just days before the convention started! The trailer was simply incredible, and Starwars.com has wasted no time in giving you a chance to see it too, minus the booming THX sound system...
