LucasFilm has just released a couple of new clips for this week’s upcoming episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, titled “Eminence.” The episode will be airing this Saturday, January 19th at 9:30 AM ET/PT on the Cartoon Network.
In “Eminence,” Savage Opress and Darth Maul are found by Death Watch after barely escaping their encounter with the Jedi at the beginning of the season. The two parties unsurprisingly displayed hostility against each other at first, but after realizing that they have a common enemy in the Jedi general, Obi Wan Kenobi, they decide to forge an alliance. You can check out the two clips below:
Lucasfilm has also provided some interesting bits of information about the episode:
Guest Stars: Pre Vizsla is voiced by Producer/Director Jon Favreau, Darth Maul is voiced by actor Sam Witwer (Being Human), Savage Opress is voiced by actor Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption) and Bo-Katan is voiced by actress Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica).
The discovery of the incapacitated Sith brothers, nearly frozen in a drifting starship, was staged as an homage to the opening scenes of Aliens (1986) wherein Ripley is found by a salvage team.
All the Huttese dialogue in the episode was translated from English. The phrase “Stuka Crispo,” heard uttered by Jabba the Hutt, means “Death Watch.”
