Filoni Talks Of The Lack Of A Crawl In TCW

Posted By Mike on August 6, 2008

Dave Filoni recently spoke with MTV about the lack of the familiar Star Wars opening crawl for The Clone Wars animated series. See below for an excerpt and click here for the full article.

'?Because we originally developed this as a TV series, George [Lucas] felt that the crawl wasn?t going to be effective as a way to introduce the audience to the TV series,? director Dave Filoni said of the ?Star Wars? crawl, the distinctive prologue which has begun every single feature adventure so far. ?He wanted it to be faster and he wanted to do it visually.?

Instead, Filoni and Co. utilized a ?Starship Troopers? esque newsreel trope, complete with 1940s style radio announcer.

?We kind of borrowed from old serials that would have like the little circular wipes and show you what Flash Gordon was up to the last time you were at the theater and we did it in a more traditional sense,? Filoni said of the change. ?The narration also is kind of a nod to old newsreel footage that you could see during a war, where they would update you on where the allies were at and their battle against the axis.?'
