USA Today released an exclusive clip featuring Plo Koon and the Wolf Pack. Author Brian Truitt also interviewed Dave Filoni concerning the series, his future at Lucasfilm, and Episode VII. Unfortunately, we still do not know when and where these arcs will air.
As for the exclusive clip, if you are unable to see it in USA Today’s video player, here is a YouTube version:
But it’s not done yet: Supervising director Dave Filoni is heading up the completion of a few story arcs that were slated for production before Lucasfilm announced in March that it was taking its animation slate in a new direction following its purchase by Disney.
“There are questions that are pretty big as far as it comes with the Clone Wars and things that people have wanted to know,” Filoni says. “They’re just these concepts just hanging out there, and finally we’re going to deal with them.”
One of the arcs stars Jedi Master Plo Koon (voiced by James Arnold Taylor), who finds a lost lightsaber while on a mission on a sandstorm-laden planet with a platoon of clone troopers. It’s the beginning of a mystery, and one that will make the Jedi question their role in the Clone Wars and the universe itself, according to Filoni.
“The Jedi have been fighting a war with an army that was commissioned by one of their own, Jedi Master Syfo-Dias,” he says. “But who was Syfo-Dias, and what happened to him? The dark lord of the Sith has woven an intricate web to ensnare the Jedi, but it is not full-proof and sometimes a small clue, and a bit of chance, can lead to the unraveling of the best-laid plans.”
While it’s yet to be announced when and where these Clone Wars episodes will air, Filoni’s team is coming close to putting final touches on the animation.
