Clone Wars CartoonsThis information was over on Jundland Wastes.
I had an interesting email earlier from someone who seemed to know plenty on The Clone Wars project. It seems that the cartoon of TCW will be a 26 part series, with 13 episodes out each year till E3 is released, The cartoon is said to be very much like the Starship Troopers cartoon series for style rather than the previously rumoured Samurai Jack series. All the main characters have been voiced by the film actors, and all our favourite film characters will be making appearences throughout the series.
The news was found on The Private Universe.
Yoda MarriesAn article on Modbee.com talks about a very interesting marriage.
"Hmm. Solemnized your union is. Happily ever after may you live."

The Dayton Daily NewsThe Dayton Daily News published an article on citizens of Ohio trying to be cast on the next survivor.
"One man ate a worm; another swallowed a live tadpole. Both hoped to prove they were ready for food challenges. One woman stripped off layers of clothing, each layer illustrating one of her roles in life: Worker, mother, wife and athlete. Another wielded a Star Wars light saber with skill and style, announcing that her Jedi training would come in handy on Survivor."
If only showing skills as a Jedi or Sith could give me a chance of being part of Survivor.
