Creating General Grievous
« on: February 28, 2004, 08:58 AM »
For Hyperspace they have the Creating General Grievous. Pretty neat stuff there.

Keep an eye on the background for some neat looking images.

General Grevious - An Alien in a Droid Shell a forshadowing of Anaking into Vader. General of the Droid Army.

At first I thought Grevious would be a character that was just filler. But now it looks like he has a major role. E3 is looking even better than before.

Honestly I'm always a little surprised when I see, as it often seems to be, that GL doesn't have much of a visual direction for the artists to take, especially with important characters. He basically lets the concept artists roll and picks and chooses later. It's not that its wrong, but I would have imagined a stronger visual direction coming from the particular writer/director. Good web doc, as usual.

Seeing Grievous actually made be think about something, when you look at the all seemingly peripheral sidekick "Darth" villians in the prequels, when they are all taken together:

Darth Maul = Anger
Darth Tyranus = Dissention
Gen. Grievous = Mechinisation

When you put them all together, you have a perfect discription of the character attributes of Darth Vader. Probably coincidence, but a happy one.

You guys see the pic of the latest Insider's cover with Grevious? What do you think?

He still throws a Robocop 2 vibe off to me. Don't think thats quite a good thing.

Yeah, just saw that new Insider pic of Grievous this morning.  Kind of cool that they are featuring him so much and actually letting us see him this early.  You can check the pic out here:

It seems when anyone pushes something (movie, music, ect) it always turns out to be bad. For this case I hope that it is not true. I hope this character turns out to be really good. Of course he will most likely end up dead by the end of E3. As long as it is cool and not dumb, who cares.

When I first saw that cover shot with Grievous on it I was like, "Damn, does he look sweet or what!?"  Obviously this is a going to be another 100% CGI character, but that doesn't bother me much with how well Yoda was done in AOTC.  I'm really looking forward to seeing this character in the movie.  I read somewhere online that Grievous will face up against Boba Fett in EP3.  Is that true or just a rumor?

Season 2 - Clone Wars
« Reply #9 on: March 20, 2004, 03:41 PM »
I was not to sure where to post this (From JediMAC: I merged it with the General Grievous discussion), but I was wondering how many of you are actually really excited about this season of the Clone Wars series.  I sure am.  

I am really thrilled about Episode 20 - which features General Grievous and the great Jedi - Aayla Secura , Ki-Adi Mundi and Shaak Ti.. I am so anxious to see what Aayla and Ki-Adi are going to look like as animated characters! It is called the Battle of Hypori - where ever that is?

I do agree.

But I am just so psyched to see my too favorite Jedi fighting together!  
Aayla Secura and Shaak Ti.  Gotta love it!  I am just really excited to see this last and final episode right before EPIII!

I don't think I am (or ever will be) much of a fan of this character.  It/he just doesn't feel very "Star Wars" to me - especially if this is going to be one of the primary Jedi killers.  Looks more like the skeletal Terminator or Darktrooper.  This type of scary looking robot has been done in many movies before, so it just doesn't seem very unique and interesting to be using in the Star Wars universe.   :-\

That monket crap with the lightsaber in his foot is a little over the top...  How the hell does he walk, or move around when he fights?  Does he just hop on one foot?!   ???   :P

And I assume he doesn't have the more appropriate (evil) red lightsabers 'cause he's not a Sith (yet)...?
