My daughter has been bugging me about this one, but finally the Cartoon Network has given Friday, October 2nd at 8pm as the second season premiere of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. On a separate note, the following was posted on the Disney D23 club site, about why Stormtroopers are apparently going to appear at the upcoming D23 Expo: “In response to inquiries from Star Wars fan sites about Storm Troopers at the D23 Expo, D23 issues the following statement: “We were contacted by the Galactic Empire and have been advised that Imperial dignitaries will be attending Disney’s D23 Expo,” said Steven Clark, head of D23. “As a result, a legion of Storm Troopers from the 501st Battalion will be patrolling the Anaheim Convention Center on Saturday, September 12.” We don’t know for certain why, but it is expected that an announcement of sorts will be made, and the leading contender among the possibilities is the long-awaited Star Tours 2.0 update to the attractions in California and Florida.
Mike writes “Combining elements of Alien Nation and Enemy Mine, District 9 adroitly balances political commentary on apartheid with Peter Jackson-ian levels of violence. The movie ends with more questions than answers and the certainty of a sequel. I can’t wait!
