'Star Wars' Creator George Lucas Goes Alien For 'Clone Wars' Appearance

Quick, how many of you know that George Lucas donned blue make-up for a quick cameo in "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith"? Well he did, and now the legendary filmmaker is bringing back his character, Pantoran Chairman Papanoida, for this Friday's 9 pm ET/PT episode of Cartoon Network's "The Clone Wars."

In the episode, Papanoida's family is kidnapped and held for ransom, leading Ahsoka Tano to team up with Senator Riyo Chuchi to aid the new chairman in recovering his loved ones. Lucasfilm describes the episode as a journey deep into the "dark underbelly" of the Coruscant crime scene, so it should provide its fair share of action. With that in mind, we've got a sneak peek at one of George's scenes, so check it out below.
