Newsbits:Clone Wars, John Carter and Avatar


For the one or two people who read this blog, sorry for the lack of updates. Honestly there hasn't been much to report but I will probably add more Retro Views soon. But today some brief news.

First up, everyone's favorite bounty hunter returns to animation this Friday with the new episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Yep Boba Fett returns, seeking revenge. You can read the full press release and see a clip at http://www.theforce.net/topstory/story/Preview_TCW_Death_Trap_130734.asp

Next up two items for John Carter of Mars fans. First up tonight (Thursday) GeekWeekLive will have a chat with actor Daryl Sabara, who is playing young Edgar Rice Burroughs. I don't know how much info will be revealed about JCOM but we'll see. You can watch the video at http://www.geekweek.com/live.html It will start at 4 P.M. PST. The other bit is on http://www.johncartermovie.com/ where they have posted a first pic from the set in Utah. Not much to see but I guess it proves their shooting.

Finally today is Earth Day. It's also Avatar Day as the epic hits Blu-Ray and DVD to help celebrate our planet and make some cash (cynical I know. But the lack of extras pretty much means double and triple dipping is coming.) I guess make you'll have to decide either to buy now or wait. Beyond that though, go out and celebrate our homeworld and have a good day.

I guess I'm one of the two readers of your blog. Have you seen this animation yet from the new JOCM movie?

Thank you for reading and for providing the link. The animantion footage posted was made in 2005 for the Paramount version. I have went ahead and made a blog post for it and something else that fans might find interesting.
