By Mike — Monday, March 11, 2013

Whether it be action figures or animated television series, the tea leaves certainly pointed to the inevitability of change and the ever evolving dynamic of the Disney acquisition and new films. In a further effort to focus their attention and resources to those new films, StarWars.com announces the future of The Clone Wars and Star Wars Detours.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: The Clone Wars - Eminence

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 22, 2013

This week on The Clone Wars: Darth Maul is actually compelling to watch in "Eminence." If you like your episodes peppered with fan service (minus the cheesecake), this is it. 22-minutes of pure love to fans of the show (and the franchise), this episode brings us back to Darth Maul and Savage Opress with a healthy dose of organized crime and Mandalorians. Also, Hutts, and Gamorrean arm wrestling. Want to know more? Damn right you do! More after the break.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: The Clone Wars - Tipping Points

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 30, 2012

This week on The Clone Wars: the battle on Onderon ends! "Tipping Points" brings us a bunch of action and resolution, speeding things along to a swift conclusion. The four-parter gave us our first look at Onderon in animation while shoving all our major players to the background. Was it worth sitting through? Let's discuss! As always, spoilers and video await you!

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: The Clone Wars - The Soft War

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 24, 2012

This week on The Clone Wars: things happen! Not extent to wallow in and repeat exposition, the oddly named "The Soft War" bring us more action, more character, and actual events that you can recount as being different from the events you have seen previously. It's almost like we're spoiled! Ahsoka gets to be cool, Steela gets to show off, and we get to see some one-way shielding, which is apparently now a thing. As always, spoilers and video await you!

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: The Clone Wars - Front Runners

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 16, 2012

We're back to The Clone Wars with "Front Runners," which is the second part in an ongoing story of Jedi-fueled rebellion on Onderon. The fight of the Onderon people against the Separatists continue, bringing us more time with Saw and Steela Gerrera and a fair amount of action sequences, plus more than a few throwbacks to a number of battles in the saga. As always, spoilers and video await you!

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: Droids S01E01... The White Witch

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, October 13, 2012

This week in Galactic Hunter Video Theater, it's more fun out-of-print goodness! Back in 1985, Saturday morning TV had The Ewoks and Droids Adventure Hour on ABC. You got 22 minutes of Ewoks, and 22 minutes of robots. Today, we look at The White Witch, the first normal-length episode of Droids which introduced us to things like Tig Fromm, Vlix, and a strange need of R2-D2 and C-3PO to be "owned." (There's a metaphor for a bad marriage in there somewhere.) Check out the full episode after the break.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: The Clone Wars - A War on Two Fronts

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 9, 2012

Taking a total turn away from where The Clone Wars was going, "A War on Two Fronts," takes us to a place which the Expanded Universe invented almost 20 years ago with the planet Onderon. Ulic and Cay Qel-Droma fought Beast Riders there, and now Anakin and Obi-Wan are bringing us on an adventure where they're training insurgents with philosophical debates over if this is training terrorists or helping people free themselves from the enemy. Shades of classic Star Trek and real-world politics paint this episode, which also shows Ahsoka fawning over the returning Lux Bonteri. Read on for more of S05E02, spoilers and video await you!
