Easy fanboys, it's not what you think. We've been hearing a lot of cross-franchise pollination over the past week, particularly since Disney shelled out $4.05 billion for the rights to 'Star Wars,' effectively placing Pixar, Marvel and a galaxy far, far away under the same roof. That collection may grow in the future, but for now, Doctor Who (David Tennant)'s upcoming appearance on 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' is strictly voiceover. Find out who the former Doctor plays inside!

Understandably, the buzz behind 'Star Wars' exploded through culture this week with news of Disney's mammoth purchase of the franchise, and eventual continuation of the movie saga that began the legendary series. Yet, through all that movie news and speculation, relatively little attention has fallen to TV, wherein 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' has been making waves for the last four years. Now that Disney owns the rights to the franchise, will they opt to continue with the long-running Cartoon Network series? Could Disney simply put the program on one of its networks, or scrap it entirely?
With all the new details of 'Star Wars' TV flying around the galaxy these days, from the TV shows that will never happen, to the ones that unfortunately will, it's easy to forget how uncompromisingly awesome 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' has become. Now heading into its fifth season (of a supposedly three year period, don't ask) the latest trailer for 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' will make many a fanboy squeal, even if they don't know what they're looking at.
Now, we'd never besmirch the good name of the 'Star Wars' movies. At least three of them, anyway. But is it us, or does 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' come closer and closer to blowing them out of the water with every season? Whether increasingly dark, or wildly stretching continuity, 'Clone Wars' makes us forget all about that purported live action 'Star Wars' TV series everyone keeps going on about. Want to see why?
Don't tell J.J. Abrams, but it looks like his 'Star Trek's Scotty has defected from the Trekkies to the realm of 'Star Wars!'
