Three new clips from The Clone Wars.
They’re pulling out all the stops as we get closer to the season finale and the return of Darth Maul. It seems like they’re pulling shorts right out of Seven Samurai in the beginning of that first clip.
The second clip has all the atmosphere of a western and it seems as though they’ve finally come close to replicating the look of the original Cantina. I know at Comic-Con last year, Joel Aron was excited to get his hands on the blueprints of the set to replicate it more faithfully. It looks like they’re getting there.
From the press release:
This week, in “Bounty,” an aimless Asajj Ventress joins a team of bounty hunters under the leadership of young Boba Fett. On an alien world, they undertake a dangerous but profitable mission that tests the limits of their skills, and the strength of Asajj’s character.
Dengar – one of the bounty hunters seen in the company of Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back – is coming to The Clone Wars, and actor Simon Pegg (Star Trek and Shaun of the Dead) is playing him in this week’s episode.
“Bounty,” airs at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT Friday, March 2nd on Cartoon Network.
