'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' New Episode On Cartoon Network!

Happy Friday everyone happy New York Comic Con!! I can't wait to go!! I was already blessed with the presence of Ashley Eckstein yesterday as she asked me and my fellow geek gals to be a part of a photo shoot for her interview about Her Universe and geek girl apparel with the New York Times! So fun and Ashley is so FRAKKING AWESOME!!!

So tomorrow is another new episode from Season 5 of Clone Wars!!!

Here's this week's summary:

Supervised by Ahsoka, the Onderon rebels infiltrate the capital and carry out a series of strikes on targets throughout the city. As the Separatist-aligned king comes under increasing pressure to deal with the growing rebellion, the rebels choose a new leader in this week's “Front Runners."

Episode Trivia:

  • As is evident in this episode, the design of Iziz draws heavily from ancient Rome. King Sanjay Rash’s design heavily features Roman influences, included a headband that suggest gilded laurel leaves at his temples.
  • The look of the Onderon rebels are very much inspired by the look of the commandos in Return of the Jedi.
  • The droid watchtower seen in Iziz resembles a similar platform used by Rebel sentries on Yavin 4 in Star Wars, except these are elevated by repulsorlift technology as opposed to mounted on a physical stalk.

And here's the clip:

Don't miss this week's “Front Runners,” airing this Saturday, October 13th at 9:30am ET/PT on Cartoon Network. And if you're in New York City this weekend I'LL SEE YOU AT THE CON!!
