Star Wars Animated Series to Premiere in Theaters?

ON reports that this morning, Hasbro announced in their Fall 20007 Analyst Event that the upcoming “Star Wars” Clone Wars animated TV series will have a theatrical launch on August 8, 2008 and then on TV throughout the fall.

Lucasfilm, however, quickly countered, telling the site that nothing has been decided as far as the launch for the series.

“I’d like to clarify Hasbro comments this AM about the Clone Wars TV series,” Lucasfilm said. “We see it as a breakthrough animated television series and are exploring a number of innovative ways to introduce it to the public. No decisions regarding release strategy have been made yet.”
