Click here for part one of an exclusive interview with Dave Filoni at iFMagazine.com where he talks The Clone Wars, its longevity, fandom and more! Excerpt below:
"iF: Obviously, there was the prior Clone Wars animated ?micro-series? that found as following as well. Did you have to take that into consideration?
FILONI: Not at all. In fact, talking with George, he felt it?s a really fun telling of the Clone Wars, but story-wise, because the action is so exaggerated and over the top, a lot of the situations in it with Jedis are very hyper. Now that he has time to be involved with telling stories, George wanted to tell the Clone Wars from his point of view, the way he wanted it to play out. But I did take some nods from the previous series in the way the characters looked at first, the way Annakin had lines to the design of the face and I wanted to show respect to the previous series because it was such a big hit with the fans. But we set about trying to make a series that was animated, but fit in as well as possible with what George did theatrically [in the live-action films]."
Part 2 should be going online next week. We'll be sure to update when it does!
