Star Wars: The Clone Wars Returns with a New Clip – Revival

The hit CG animated Star Wars spin-off, The Clone Wars, will be returning this Saturday, Sept 29 at 9:30am, and to give you an idea on what to expect, a gallery of images and a couple of preview clips from the season premiere were released online.

The Season Five premiere episode is titled ‘Revival’, and will pick up where the season four finale left off, with Darth Maul and Savage Opress reunited and hellbent on revenge. They went on a galaxy-spanning quest to spread terror, forcibly recruiting Hondo and his pirates along the way as they invade planet after planet, on their way to bring the fight to the Jedi. Brave Jedi try to curtail the brothers’ reign of terror, only to realize that they’d have to fight for their lives instead.

This is it, the moment fans are waiting for. Obi Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul finally meet each other in the Season Finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars this March 16, Friday, 8PM ET/PT on the Cartoon Network.

For those in need of a recap, Darth Maul and Obi Wan first met each other in Naboo, during the events of The Phantom Menace. Maul faced both Jedi Master Qui Gon Jinn and the young Obi Wan Kenobi. Maul was able to defeat Qui Gonn, and almost did the same thing to the jedi master’s padawan. It was only through luck that Kenobi was able to get the jump on Maul, cutting the sith lord and half and letting him fall to his death.

Cartoon Network has let it be known: Darth Maul is on his way back. The Sith Lord from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace began as the apprentice to Darth Sidious. But his demonic red face, horned head, and double-bladed lightsaber have kept the character incredibly powerful: even after his apparent death in the first film, at the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi. But what if he wasn’t dead? What if Darth Maul somehow survived? This is the premise being explored later this season on Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars – and frankly, we can’t wait to find out what happens!

Maybe it started a long, long time ago, but it really only feels like three years! The truth is, Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been one of Cartoon Network’s biggest hits over the past few seasons; so much so that the CN is proudly bringing the Lucas teams back for yet another season – the show’s fourth. What will be in store for The Clone Wars season four? Well, we got a glimpse of that a few weeks back, but here’s what we’re hoping for: more Chewbacca, more looks into the life and family of Darth Maul and Savage Opress, and maybe just a tease of some Han Solo! Maybe as some sorta rebellious baby. Oooh, and maybe my own Lightsaber. Anyone else?

Nightsisters brings Savage Opress to Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Just waiting to dig into some Clone Wars action scenes? Already a buzz with the Force thanks to the recent Star Wars Blu-ray announcements? Well Cartoon Network has some big stuff planned for you, starting with the newest Nightsisters storyline for season 3 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The three-episode arc introduces Savage Opress, whom George Lucas himself dubbed “Darth Maul’s brother.” With Clancy Brown behind the voice (just as he was for Justice League Unlimited’s Lex Luthor – and SpongeBob’s Mr. Krabs) it seems like this could be the teetering point of giving the Sith full control over the Jedi. Or, perhaps, Savage will stir for the good guys? Mr. Brown himself answers “you don’t really have a choice on who you are when the Nightsisters and Asajj and Count Dooku are involved.” Check out a sneak peek clip

Star Wars has a very long history. I mean, beyond just the 30+ years the epic has made theatrical appearances, we’re talking about the story that takes place “a long time ago.” The prequels helped fill in the saga, telling parts 1-3 of the overall story arc. Cartoon Network’s CG series The Clone Wars has further deepened that universe, molding the evolution of Anakin Skywalker into Darth Vader. However, one key (and incredibly popular) character shown early in the prequel films has been disappointingly absent from the later movies as well as the toon – what did ever happen with Darth Maul? Looks like Lucasfilm might finally be willing to share that story. Check out a clip of the story in action:
