The trailer for Season 2 of the Cartoon Network’s “The Clone Wars” debuted at Comic-Con (see video below), and the only thing that can possibly matter about this coming season is that one of the main villains is a robot dressed as Nicolas Cage in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
Executive 1: Okay, so we need an evil droid to hunt the Jedi. How can we convey the fact that this robot is evil?
Executive 2: Pointy goatee?
Executive 3: Monocle?
Executive 4: Bear suit?
Executive 1: That’s it!
Executive 4: Really? The bear suit?
Executive 1: No, Nic Cage! Make the robot look like Nic Cage!
Anyway, aside from that, this doesn’t look awful. Might be the sort of “Star Wars” prequel series that would interest me if George Lucas hadn’t already taken a steaming dump on the franchise. Cat-eating weirdo.
