Star Wars: The Clone Wars 

George Lucas, that greedy visionary, is now in the infomercial manufacturing business — the pitchman forever selling rehashed product to successive generations of younger and younger Star Wars fans raised on fond memories of a saga that peaked in 1980. As Star Wars movies go, The Clone Wars is minor to the point of irrelevance. Lucas, this time working with director Dave Filoni and writer Henry Gilroy (two cartoon veterans), revisits the Clone Wars. Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi must rescue the kidnapped pupa of Jabba the Hutt. Only Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Daniels and Christopher Lee reprise their roles from the live-action series. Repeat after me: This is not the Star Wars movie you were looking for.
