New Star Wars: Clone Wars Movie Poster Debuts at ShoWest!

While many of us in the movie journalism field are partying our nights (and mornings) away here in Austin for South By Southwest, another large slice of the online community is in the equally sunny city of Las Vegas for ShoWest. ShoWest is an exhibition for theater chains, industry insiders and press to get a look at all the coolest new marketing tools for some of the most anticipated films.

Over the next few days, you will be seeing all kinds of cool stuff from our friends and neighbors who are covering the event. First up, the first teaser poster for Star Wars: Clone Wars<, the highly anticipated animated television series that will begin with a theatrical run. Check it out below.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Pretty cool, huh? I have to admit that while I am not sold on some of the look of this new chapter in the Star Wars lore, I love the idea. When you look at the Star Wars universe, you find the films (obviously), a collection of great video games and a following that is beyond cultish. The market is ripe for a well executed television series. Whether or not this is it will be told with time, but for now I am at least paying attention.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is being produced by Lucasfilm. The animated movie will hit theaters on August 15th and will be followed by a cable series in the fall on Cartoon Network and TNT that will feature 30 “mini-movies.”

For more awesome ShoWest coverage, we would point you to our good friends over at Latino Review. They are the ones who delivered this poster and many others to us. Enjoy!
