It’s obvious that these posters for Clone Wars are trying quite hard to look like classic Star Wars posters. And to some extent they are successful. The connection is obvious and the style immediately recognizable.
But for me that just makes it even more painfully clear that this isn’t a real Star Wars movie. The similar styles force me to compare the cartoonish look with the usual Star Wars visuals, and quite frankly the visuals of the animation don’t really measure up.
Perhaps I’m just biased against the posters for this film because I really don’t like the whole idea of releasing this hybrid movie/series thing. But these feel like mere shadows of something great.
