Filoni Answers Clone Wars Fans’ Questions

Recently, fans of The Clone Wars got a nice treat from Supervising Director Dave Filoni who answers questions on his Facebook page about the current season and things to come.

Here are some of the highlights. Be sure to follow Filoni on Facebook here.

Is there an endgame for the series in mind already? Do you know what the last episode or mini-series already is, it’s just a matter of how long will Cartoon Network let you take to get there? — Beej Powers

I always have an endgame in sight. George and I have discussed it, but we just keep writing more stories and finding new and exciting situations for the characters. New stories come along that change the end game, so it’s still evolving. We know we are on a collision course with Revenge of the Sith, but there are details surrounding the fate of certain characters that are still in discussion. This is an exciting time for the writing team, because big things are going to happen with significant characters.

Are to see a revolution on Mandalore. The Essential Atlas mentioned AWOL ARC trooper Alpha-02 “Spar” being the one who returns the Mandalorians to their warrior ways. Are we going to see this event AND more importantly Satine’s faction fate? — Pavel Klimes

What you saw in Season 4 with the Death Watch was just a small taste of what is to come. I think the Madalorians are involved in one of the best story arcs next season. A great deal is at stake and big things happen. As far as Spar, the clones and the Mandalorians go, you have to understand that in the film saga, and the TV series, clones don’t really identify with Mandalorians. The vast majority of clones never met Jango Fett, and the series has focused more on the clones having their own culture, rather than adopting a culture that they never really came in contact with. Satine will be returning and I promise you she will have bigger problems than tainted Moogan Tea this time.

Why wasn’t Cody at Obi’s funeral? Isn’t he is second in command? — Leonor Cardenas

In order to keep the nature of Obi-Wan’s mission as secret as possible, the Jedi Council assigned Cody to a mission so he could not attend. A fact that did not sit well with the Commander.

My question is simply weather Obi-Wan and Satine will be seeing each other, face-to-face once more. — Madison Sneddon

That’s a very thoughtful question Madison, so I will answer you. YES!

Are there any plans to convert General Grievous to Episode III, with his six fingered hands instead of four? — Bryce Martin

We have never updated Grievous since we did the original model but that’s overdue. Let me talk to Kilian and see what he says, but I think that’s a really good idea. The show has evolved, and maybe that should too.

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!

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.
