USA Today has published a clip which appears on the bonus features of the new Clone Wars DVD that came out today. In this new clip, we see an unfinished scene. The Jedi counsel members are outside with Ahsoka and Anakin in this scene. It basically progresses the same as the final version which aired, except Ahsoka says coldly, “They never should have told me to leave.”
I know that when the final aired, I felt like she didn’t express enough anger with the counsel, so the fact that she lets out some steam in this scene makes me happy. Watch it for yourself below, and then comment and tell me what you think!
A new trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 5 was released this weekend from the Star Wars Celebration VI, which is in Orlando, FL! This new trailer, the longest so far released, (and rumored to be the final one before the new season starts) is a good 3 minutes long, and includes much more of the footage in the new season then previous trailers. Director Dave Filoni said this:
“The first season 5 trailer we released back in June was about the most limited version possible of what you could see, It didn’t have any of the good stuff in it, because there’s so little that we could show that wasn’t going to give our secrets away. So for this new trailer I said to our editor Kevin Yost, ‘I’m giving you all of the footage, and the only thing you can’t show or talk about is this one thing. But everything else, put it in, and I’ll tell you if you went too far.’ Except for one thing, everything was fair game.”
After watching this new trailer, it’s clear that everything WAS fair game. We see Maul, asking the Death Watch to join him, Darth Sidious shocking someone with force-lightning, and Ahsoka being in peril several times!
“These are the most thought-provoking episodes we’ve done, for sure,”-Dave Filoni
The new season is set to debut on Cartoon Network on Saturday Sept. 29 in its new 9:30 a.m. timeslot. (What do you think about this time change? I guess it’ll make for more viewers!)
And will there be stuff in it for us obsessed, er, I mean, LOYAL fans? “Yes,” Filoni says, “Season 5, more than any other we’ve produced, is geared to the loyal viewer.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: It has come to our attention that the episode titles 1 through 7 posted here may not be correct. We got our titles from a source we thought reliable, but sometimes even reliable sources provide false information. While I believe the titles 7-22 are correct, the titles for episodes 1-7 may not be. We have listed the titles that are thought to be correct here:
“A War on Two Fronts”
“The Soft War”
“An Old Friend”
“The Rise of Clovis”
“Crisis at the Heart”
Apparently these first seven titles have been revealed in an issue of a magazine by Dave Filoni. We still consider our source reliable though, so who knows? Just wanted to let you know. Now, here’s our original article:
Here are the titles for all 22 (always the same number of episodes in every season, wonder why?) episodes coming this fall! They seem a lot different compared to last seasons titles. Not only are they longer, but they also provide more information as to the content of the episode, unlike the generalist of last years titles like “Deception”.
Here are the titles in order:
Episode 1: Secrets of Darth Plagueis
Episode 2: Ancient Wars of Yoda
Episode 3: Millennium Falcon Liberated Part 1
Episode 4: Millennium Falcon Liberated Part 2
Episode 5: IG88 Loyal to None
Episode 6: First Jedi Revealed
Episode 7: Sith Holocrons of Darth Bane
Episode 8: Young Qui-Gon Jinn on Hancarth Part 1
Episode 9: Young Qui-Gon Jinn on Hancarth Part 2
Episode 10: Rescue of Boba Fett
Episode 11: Lightsaber Construction
Episode 12: Dark Coruscant Underground
Episode 13: Enter the Spice Mines of Kessel
Episode 14: The Journal of the Whills
Episode 15: The Enigma Dilemma
Episode 16: Mysteries of the Rodar Wizards
Episode 17: Ghost of Rage
Episode 18: Terror on Alderaan
Episode 19: Roar of the Wookiees
Episode 20: Kyber Crystal Revelation
Episode 21: Desperation of Grentarik
Episode 22: The Final Sacrifice.
So, first of all, AHHHHHHHHH! The new season is getting closer every day!! I’m very excited! (As you can tell from the long scream of joy.)
Secondly, WOW! Starting from the very first episode, we’re going to be going deep down into Star Wars history and secrets! This isn’t just watching little battles anymore, this is historic content!
Some highlights include learning the “secrets” of ancient sith lord Darth Plagueis in episode one! That will be an amazing start to the season.
Next, we get the priviledge of seeing the “Ancient Wars of Yoda”! I can’t wait to see the lil’ green guy hopping about with his lightsaber! It will be awesome to see Master Yoda in his younger days. Unless of course, this isn’t what the episode is about at all. They could be misleading names on purpose. But I highly doubt it. These names are pretty closed for interpretation.
The next two shows will be part one and part two of the liberation of the Millennium Falcon! OMG! Will we get to see a much younger Han Solo? That would be too amazing for words!
Next we have an episode that is presumably about a droid going rogue. That seems pale next to Yoda’s ancient wars and the secrets of Darth Plagueis, but I’m sure it will be great.
“First Jedi Revealed” is an interesting title, for sure. Could it be an episode about the first Jedi who ever lived? That’s a good guess, which is all we can do for now.
Then in episode seven, we’ll see what some sith holocrons contain. Darth Bane will be involved somehow, so it looks like Dave Filoni and company are trying to get older fans to watch the show with all these long gone sith lords.
Now comes one of the most surprising two-parters of all. “Young Qui-Gon Jinn on Hancarth”! WOW! (I know I keep saying that, but seriously, A YOUNG VERSION OF QUI-GON JINN??!) Apparently we will be watching the master of Obi-Wan when he was younger. I like these kind of big shocks, because normally the Clone Wars focuses on the times during the Clone Wars, but of course sometimes we need a break from that. Bringing in a big character like Qui-Gon and looking at his past will be fantastic to watch, and will be very informative for people who want to know more about the old Jedi.
“Rescue of Boba Fett” is one of the more normal episodes I expect from Dave Filoni. We saw some of Boba in season four, when he hired Asajj Ventress onto his bounty hunting team. Last I checked though, Boba was in prison on Coruscant. This is how he will break out, I’m sure, which will be fun to watch.
Episode eleven, “Lightsaber Construction” is another very interesting title. I suppose we’ll get to watch how a lightsaber is built, something that is clouded in mystery, since lightsaber crystals are very rare. Maybe Ahsoka or Anakin will be needing a new weapon, and will go make one?
“Dark Coruscant Underground” is one that I CAN tell what it will be about. The criminal scum that thrives in the deep down sections of the city of Coruscant. It’s always fun to get an in-depth look as to what it’s like down there. On the surface, Coruscant is a happy, thriving planet, but underneath…it is another story.
The next episode will deal with the underground “spice mines”. This one is perhaps the one that seems the most boring to me, but that might not be the case for you. (Comment below and tell me!)
“The Journal of the Whills”…this is another one that I cannot begin to guess about. So, I did some research into what the “Whills” are, exactly. (See, I come prepared when I write a blog post. No, just kidding.) The Whills are an ancient order of beings who are highly connected with the Force. Yep. That’ll be awesome to watch! This episode would seem to be like the Mortis trilogy from season 3, since it contains beings highly connected with the Force.
Episode fifteen is an “enigma”. (Haha, see what I did there? Used part of the title in a sentence? Yea, I’m cool like that.) Can’t begin to guess what this episode is about…(What do you think? Comment below!)
“Mysteries of the Rodar Wizards” sounds very mysterious. I’m guessing that some mysteries of the Wizards who live on Rodar will be revealed. (Just a guess there.)
Now here’s a fun one. “Ghost of Rage” is the next episode as we start to come to the end of Season Five. Perhaps a ghost will come back to haunt someone…and this ghost isn’t a friendly one either. Perhaps it is the ghost of an old sith? I’m open to speculation on this, so discuss in the comments.
This next one, “Terror on Alderaan” will be scary! It has the word Terror in the title! D: (Actually, it might be! Really!) Perhaps Darth Maul will pay the unsuspecting citizens a visit? Doncha just hate it when Maul comes to visit? Talk about an unwelcome guest…
This episode just sounds plain EPIC. “Roar of the Wookiees”. Can Clone Wars get any more amazing? I think not. Chewbacca has appeared once before, in the last episode of season three. Will he be seen again here? Maybe!
“Kyber Crystal Revelation” is a weird episode title. I’m excited to see what it’s about. Any guesses? Comment and tell me, cause I wanna know!
Now we are almost at the end (WAH!) with episode twenty-one, “Desperation of Grentarik”. (I really had trouble spelling that last word.) I am thinking that perhaps this one might be the trouble Dave Filoni spoke about Ahsoka facing. None of the other episode names really fit with that storyline I think. Also, if this one is the start of Ahsoka’s troubles, then the last one might end the season with an episode starring her! (Which would be awesome, even if it’s about her in trouble.)
Well, here we are…this episode title just sends chills down my back. Ready for it? “THE FINAL SACRIFICE”…Now, I’m going to scare you for a minute here. If you scare easily, then stop reading right now. Okay, here we go… Remember when I wrote a post about the “Fates of Ahsoka”? If you don’t, then go read our old blog posts! (Just kidding, you don’t have too.) But anyway, in that post, I mentioned a possibility my friend suggested to me about Ahsoka Tano’s fate. This idea would also advance Anakin’s fate, by pushing him towards the dark side. If someone died to save Anakin, he would be even more interested when Palpatine talks to him about saving people close to him. What if…Ahsoka DIED, saving ANAKIN SKYWALKER! (Sorry for the caps, I’m all worked up now.) It could happen! Listen to this quote from Clone Wars producer Dave Filoni:
I think that the character development that you saw this season is going to pay off next season, more than it has in any other season. We introduce several ideas about Ahsoka and where she’s going. Ahsoka has a huge year next year. And I think people who have been loyal to the show and have watched it since the beginning and watched this kid grow up, there are definitely… things that are going to happen to her next year that change her forever as a character, relating to the other characters especially. So that’s going to be a big deal.
So…Dave says the new season shows ideas about “where she (Ahsoka) is going”. He goes on to say “people who have been loyal to the show and have watched it since the beginning and watched this kid (Ahsoka) grow up” will get to see something that “changes her forever as a character”. Just think of this: Ahsoka, who has been Anakin’s padawan since the beginning of the show, who loves him as a teacher, she somehow saves him from doom, but in the process gets herself killed, or severely injured. Anakin is distraught, and is pushed towards the fear of losing people he loves. AAAAAHHHHHHHHH! I see Ahsoka’s demise written all over this! Just kidding, actually I don’t predict they will show her fate yet. But, this is very good evidence for her dying or something in the final episode of this season. Think about it…and tell me what you think by commenting belooow!
Well, there you have it. The overview of Season Five, coming this fall. Tell me what you think about all this amazing stuff (and Ahsoka’s demise, perhaps?) by commenting. Oh, and also take our poll below.
So a popular question is what is Anakin doing in this part of the preview trailer for season 4? There is a quick sequence where Commander Cody is showing a hologram to what looks like a Jedi. Anakin approaches them and uses the Force to pull the hologram out of Cody’s hand and destroys it in anger. It happens so fast in the trailer you might have missed it! I wonder if Anakin starts turning to the dark side more later this season! Here’s a picture of it:
In the trailer for season four, we see Anakin going home on a mission involving freeing slaves. Considering his own slave past (think back to #1) his feelings will be tested! In the trailor, obi-wan says to Ahsoka, “Anakin is having trouble putting the past Behind him.” Ahsoka says” I’ll keep an eye on him”. Anakin also seems to be going a bit lightsaber crazy in the preview. And…how will Ahsoka handle it watching her mentor/role model/best friend growing darker? Well we all have to wait until sep. 16 to find out. May the force be with you!
The ending to season three the most current. So this is where things stand right now. This just shows how much Ahsoka means to Anakin. He always talks about how he doesn’t want to lose the ones he loves…can’t wait for season four!!!
