Back in November Lucasfilm Ltd. and Cartoon Network invited fans to sign up for a special, limited theatrical screening in selected areas of a big screen sneak peek at an all-new Clone Wars villain – the monstrous Savage Opress! This week The Clone Wars screenings began in Los Angeles at the Egyptian Theatre.

Cast and crew alike came out in full Force to entertain and meet the fans, which also included a few celebrities in the mix. The 501st, Rebel Legion and R2 builders attended as well, giving fans a chance to have their photos taken with clone troopers, Jedi and droids.

StarWars.com was there to report and live tweet the event. Check out the article below for quotes from Supervising Director Dave Filoni, voice actors Cat Taber, Ashley Eckstein, Nika Futterman and Clancy Brown, as well as Clone Wars writer Katie Lucas.

Why do you think theatrical screenings of The Clone Wars for fans are important?

Dave Filoni: It’s just fun. Part of being a fan is seeing stuff like this together. Star Wars has always been on a big screen. I think that George wanting to put this on a big screen for fans to see is really great. It shows how much he actually cares about the fans. And it’s another great opportunity for fans to get together to watch it.

What are you most excited about this story arc for fans to see?

Dave Filoni: I’m excited for them to see this. I know this is what they want. It’s action and adventure and dark. I have a lot of friends that I worked with in the animation industry in Los Angeles and they’re all here to see it, and that makes it extra-special for me. I’m also excited for Katie [Lucas] to be here and see the fan reaction probably for the first time ever for something she’s created. So there’s a lot of positive things about this screening.

Ashley Eckstein Hosts Her Universe Panel at Comic-Con

StarWars.com Team | July 13, 2010

One of the fastest growing demographics in the Science Fiction genre is the female audience. Thanks to an entertainment landscape which is growing more and more female-friendly, the foundation for fangirls in the Sci-Fi/pop culture world is getting stronger every year and they are rapidly becoming a Force to be reckoned with.

Realizing this incredibly important and increasing segment of the Sci-Fi audience, Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano on the television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, has teamed up with The Araca Group, the co-producers & merchandising company behind the Broadway sensation, Wicked, to launch Her Universe — a line of merchandise designed exclusively for female fans. Beginning with a license for Star Wars, Her Universe focuses on authentic and high-quality licensed Sci Fi/Fantasy fashion apparel and merchandise.

Eckstein’s new endeavor, however, is not just about selling merchandise. She hopes to start a movement within the Sci-Fi community to equally acknowledge the female fan base. Her first step will be coordinating and hosting a special panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, July 24 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in Room 24ABC, entitled “Her Universe: Shining the Spotlight on Female Fans — the Past, Present and Future of Science Fiction Through Female Eyes.”

Yoda’s wisdom isn’t just for Jedi. The San Diego Padres seem to have adopted a new green mascot, which can’t hurt gaming odds.

Recently, Yoda was spotted with the Padres as they played against the Florida Marlins. Of course, Yoda does have another connection to the Padres. Actress Ashley Eckstein, who voices Jedi Ahsoka Tano in The Clone Wars animated series and created a new fashion line for female Star Wars fans called Her Universe, is married to Padres’ infielder David Eckstein.
