A strange choice of CGI used there. Very dark imagery combined with exaggerated insectile joint movements in the humanoids. Sort of aimed at kids, but hopefully not too dark for them.
What kills me is that some of the commercials are playing up the angle of Anakin Skywalker having his own padawan (apprentice) who is a teenage girl and I can't help but think...The more I find out about this film, The less I want to see it.
There is definitely an anime influence to them, something that a lot of North American viewers may not be used to.I think I read they wanted the 3D animation look a lot like the comics, that's why it looks a little bit funny.
(Via Wired)Wired said:With the CG-animated Star Wars: Clone Wars set to premiere on Cartoon Network this Friday, Warner Bros. is ramping up its publicity effort.
The feature film that previewed the series will arrive Blu-ray DVD on Nov. 11.
Meanwhile, a set of promotional photos (such as the harsh glare from General Grievous above) hit the web teasing the series that promises to unveil what a lot of Star Wars fans always thought would be the coolest chapter in the saga since Mark Hamill first mentioned the Clone Wars in A New Hope.
