George Lucas showed up in Vegas to promote Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and managed to be fairly cagey when it came to revealing anything to Empire. He showed a five minute clip (share, share!) and described the retro futuristic look as "a stylised cartoon, it's not photo real ... it's in a Gerry Anderson style, Thunderbirds. The characters have painted surfaces - they look like they've been painted."

He also assured fans that it will feature all the major characters, as it takes place between Episodes II and III of the Star Wars saga. "It's got everyone. Yoda, The Emperor ... everybody that's in the features is in the animated series. It's just as if we took the feature and just continued it in an animation style." Alas, but not unexpected, none of the original cast members will be voicing their characters.
