2,060. The Latest Star Wars Movie Development Rumors

2/23/2020
First it was Taika Waititi in January. Now, in February, J.D. Dillard is in the spotlight, being rumored as in early development talks for a Star Wars movie along with writer Matt Owens. Lucasfilm, of course, hasn't said a word about this. The Hollywood Reporter broke the story, and Variety and Deadline Hollywood followed up with their own confirmations. But I should be clear that those "confirmations" are only confirmations that they're hearing the same rumors THR is reporting. That...

2,059: The Bad Batch (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 7, Episode 1)

2/22/2020
"The Bad Batch" is episode 1 from season 7 of the Clone Wars - yes, it's finally here! And in a development that shouldn't come as a surprise, there are a couple of differences between the version previously presented as story reels/unfinished animation, and the final version that debuted on Disney+ yesterday. The main differences are in the setup - a different fortune cookie, a variation on the explanation for why the Republic is losing the fight on Anaxes, a different origin for the...

2,058. Clone Wars Season 7 and Ahsoka's Final Story Arcs

2/21/2020
Today's the day! First announced at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2018, Clone Wars Season 7 is finally here, with the first episode dropping on Disney+ earlier today. And tomorrow, we'll have the official Clone Wars Briefing for the episode, "The Bad Batch." For today, however: We know that the Bad Batch story arc is going to kick off the season, and it's a fair bet that the Siege of Mandalore story arc will end the season. But what will happen in those middle episodes? Well, we know that...

2,057. Sacrifice (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 13)

2/20/2020
"Sacrifice" is episode 13 from season 6 of the Clone Wars - what we thought would be the last episode ever, until fan campaigns, the advent of Disney+, and the desire of Dave Filoni to finish what he started all combined to result in the season 7 that debuts tomorrow. For now, though, we're focused on resolving the final story arc from season 6, which features Yoda flying to Moraband, the Sith homeworld. There, he will face his final tests in order for the Force Priestesses to believe...

2,056. Destiny (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 12)

2/19/2020
"Destiny" is season 6, episode 12 from the Clone Wars, the third part of a four-episode story are, and the penultimate episode of the Clone Wars - at least, until season 7 debuts on Friday. From what we know about season 7 so far, it doesn't initially seem like this final season 6 story arc will affect the events of season 7 very much. And we know two of the three story arcs so far - the Bad Batch arc, and the Siege of Mandalore arc. What the third one is, is still a mystery at this...

2,055. Voices (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 11)

2/18/2020
"Voices" is episode 11 from season 6 of the Clone Wars, and aside from the Clone Wars Briefing that takes place on this show, we could be doing a whole separate episode about the nature of the Force - this episode reveals things that even the Jedi didn't know about it, and that deeply enhance our own understanding of it. But there's also more pressing matters to consider, like the fact that the leader of the Separatists is the same person who is responsible for the creation of a clone...

2,054. The Lost One (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 10)

2/17/2020
The urge to start this post with the big line from Yoda at the end of "The Lost One" is almost too much to bear. This episode of the show is a full spoiler Clone Wars Briefing for episode 10 from season 6, which also begins the final story arc of "The Lost Missions" episodes. So you'll hear me say it on the show, and revel in the magnitude of it for a time as well. But I'll keep it out of here, just in case. What you need to know in the run-up to it: The episode kicks off with the Jedi...

2,053. The Disappeared, Part 2 (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 9)

2/16/2020
"The Disappeared, Part 2" is season 6, episode 9 of the Clone Wars series, and this briefing is going to go quickly. That's because most of the plot was set up in Part 1 of this two-part story arc, and Part 2 is all about how Jar Jar and Mace are going to pull off the rescue of Queen Julia. The only big new deal of the episode is the detail behind the prophecy about chaos and destruction coming to the galaxy if the Frangawl cult pulls off their shenanigans. We'll talk about that new news,...

2,052: The Disappeared, Part 1 (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 8)

2/15/2020
"The Disappeared, Part 1" is season six, episode 8 of the Clone Wars, and the first of a two-parter. And it's remarkable for a strange juxtaposition. On the one hand, the story is about the fact that various spiritual leaders on the neutral planet Bardotta have mysteriously disappeared. And it turns out this is a particular set of Force-sensitive mystics called the Dagoyan Masters. As Yoda notes, they're not warriors - their connection with the Force is about intuition, knowledge, and the...

2,051. Crisis at the Heart (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 7)

2/14/2020
"Crisis at the Heart" is the seventh episode from season six of the Clone Wars, and concludes the Banking Clan/Clovis story arc. Honestly, this is a plot following the formula of The Phantom Menace, in its way. Instead of the taxation of trade routes driving the action, this time we're talking about the interest on bank loans driving the action! Specifically, Count Dooku has the leverage to entrap Clovis, just as Darth Sidious intended. Clovis wants to remain impartial in the...

2,050. The Rise of Clovis (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 6)

2/13/2020
"The Rise of Clovis" is episode 6 from season 6 of the Clone Wars, and (according to Wookieepedia), was once part of a larger story arc that included "A Friend in Need," which ultimately was split off and became episode 14 from season 4 of the show. Which fits it into the four-episode story arc structure business about which we've talked previously on the show... So Palpatine is at his manipulative worst in this episode, and I mean that in a good way (from a storytelling standpoint). He...

2,049 An Old Friend (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 5)

2/12/2020
"An Old Friend" is the fifth episode from season six of the Clone Wars, and starts a three-episode story arc that's cut from the mold of The Phantom Menace in terms of its setup. Here's the opening narration: As the war between the Republic and the Separatists intensifies, many are driven from their home planets, and it is up to Senator Amidala to secure aid for them. All eyes turn to the Banking Clan and the planet Scipio. In an effort to remain independent from the Republic and the...

2,048. Orders (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 4)

2/11/2020
"Orders" is episode 4 from season 6 of the Clone Wars series, and the final episode of the season-opening story arc. Unfortunately - for our characters, that is - it ends about as badly as you would expect it to, if you've already seen Revenge of the Sith. Fives has been brought to Coruscant to present his discoveries to Chancellor Palpatine himself, but before that happens, Kaminoan collaborator Nala Se injects Fives with an unknown substance. Surprise surprise, when Fives is left alone...

2,047. Fugitive (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 3)

2/10/2020
"Fugitive" is episode 3 from season 6 of the Clone Wars, and we're now going from battlefield action to medical investigation to sci-fi thriller in our genre-busting first story arc of the season. It's a wild ride, and it works fantastically well. Fives is supposed to be undergoing one last test before he's shipped back to the 501st, but medical droid AZI-3 says he's heard Fives is going to be reprogrammed and kept on Kamino as a sanitation worker. That, obviously, doesn't go over well...

2,046. Conspiracy (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 2)

2/9/2020
"Conspiracy" is the second episode from season 6 of the Clone Wars, and the second of a four-episode arc. Instead of being a sort of fog-of-war episode with lots of action like the last one, this episode is more of a medical investigation drama. That in itself is remarkable - it goes to show how flexible the Star Wars storytelling universe can be, and it also goes to show how unusual this is for a supposed kids cartoon. This really seems more like young adult storytelling and above. Also,...

2,045. The Unknown (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 6, Episode 1)

2/8/2020
Now we move into the Lost Missions! That's how Lucasfilm referred to season 6 of the Clone Wars. It was originally intended to be a 22-episode season, but then it was pulled from the Cartoon Network lineup as of the end of season 5, in March 2013. But - good news! Production was still ongoing, and they ultimately completed 13 episodes, which were first released in Germany and later via Netflix in the US and Canada in early 2014. On today's Clone Wars Briefing, we'll examine "The Unknown,"...

2,044. Star Wars News Roundup!

2/7/2020
There have been a few decent-sized bits of news about Star Wars recently, not the least of which was the Disney earnings call earlier this week, when Bob Iger spoke about the future of Star Wars storytelling. I'll share the clip of him talking about that on today's show, and we'll talk about a few other things, too, including Rian Johnson, Project Luminous, and two names you might never have heard of - one who played a number of onscreen Star Wars roles, and one who helped the original Star...

2,043. The Wrong Jedi (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 5, Episode 20)

2/6/2020
And now, we come to the end of the Jedi Temple bombing story arc, and the end of season 5 of the Clone Wars, and the end of episodes of the Star Wars animated series on Cartoon Network. "The Wrong Jedi" - a title inspired, yet again, by an Alfred Hitchcock movie title, and yet again with not much to do with the actual content of the episode - features the final fate of Ahsoka Tano (at least, as depicted in the Clone Wars to date). On today's Clone Wars Briefing, we'll explore the events of...

2,042: To Catch a Jedi (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 5, Episode 19)

2/5/2020
Again with the Alfred Hitchcock-inspired titling! But To Catch a Thief doesn't offer any clues to the events of "To Catch a Jedi," which is episode 19 from season 5 of the Clone Wars animated series, and the third of a four-episode story arc that will conclude the season (after episode 20, "The Wrong Jedi"). Ahsoka is on the run, and the murders for which she's been framed - plus the presumption that she has something to do with the Jedi Temple bombing herself - are being described as an...

2,041. The Jedi Who Knew Too Much (Clone Wars Briefing, Season 5, Episode 18)

2/4/2020
"The Jedi Who Knew Too Much" is the second of a four-part story arc that concludes season 5 of the Clone Wars cartoon series. Today, it's a Clone Wars Briefing on this episode, episode 18 from season 5. Influenced by Alfred Hitchcock and Richard Kimble, this episode finds Ahsoka unwittingly maneuvered into a very bad position. Letta Turmond, the prime suspect in the Jedi Temple bombing plot, has been remanded into Republic military custody, but she'll only talk to Ahsoka. When Ahsoka...
