Clone Wars Screening in Philly!

Tonight, a few staff members here at Yodasnews, had the pleasure of seeing an advanced screening of three future Clone Wars episodes, as well as, a montage of the rest of Season 3. 

Our night started with a three block walk on a frigid night in Philadelphia.  Once we arrived at the theatre, we were greeted by several Lucas Film employees and a few United States Marines.  We handed over our screening passes and over three dozen carded figures for the Toys for Tots donation.  One of the Lucasfilm employees jokingly called Mark “Santa Claus”, with what seemed like his endless bag of figures. 

We were then given several promotional items (Tattoos, Clone Wars Adventures Station Cash, 501st Cards) and VIP passes for a free popcorn and soda. 

We then went to theatre 6, where R2-D2 was waiting to greet us and once everyone was settled a trivia contest began. 

Lucas Film gave away several items, including Hasbro Clone Wars Deluxe General Grievous Spinning Lightsabers, Books and even a Verizon R2-D2 Branded Droid 2!  Once the fun was over (and it was nice to see kids win a majority of the toys and a member of the 501st win the Droid 2), a familiar voice asked us to turn off our phones and enjoy the show.

It was amazing to see a show that we have been accustomed to watching on the small screen now on the big screen.  We don’t want to get into too much detail, because all of these episodes will premiere on Cartoon Network (New Time 8:30/7:30 C) next month, but look for a very exciting and very dark side of the Clone Wars that we haven’t seen before. Fans who have complained that the series has been too “kidish” will have nothing to complain about after viewing these episodes. 

The night ended with a special message from Dave Filoni and a glimpse of what is to come for the rest of Season 3 and all we will say is you ain't seen nothing yet! As we exited (led by R2 himself), all guests were given a full sized Savage Opress Poster, as well as a very cool T-Shirt which you could even get in your size which was a nice touch!

The night would not have been complete without a stop for a Philly Cheesesteak on 38th and Chestnut!! 

 We would like to thank Lucasfilm and Gofobo for giving us the opportunity to attend this screening and hope they do one like this again very soon!
