‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Breakdown: The Details and History That Enrich “Deal No Deal”

Last week’s episode of Star Wars:  The Clone Wars gave us the distinct impression that Ahsoka would be taking a turn into a life of crime. This week’s episode, “Deal No Deal,” delivers. When Rafa Martez gets a job that she promises is a simple run, it turns out to be anything but simple. Soon, Ahsoka and the Martez sisters are wrapped up in a spice smuggling operation that goes south faster than an Anakin Skywalker plan. Anakin’s Sixth Sense When Trace Martez takes her ship, The Silv...

The latest episode of  Star Wars: The Clone Wars  continues the adjustment of former Skywalker padawan Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) to her new station without the Jedi’s guide.  She  is temporarily residing in the underground of Coruscant, sheltered by the not-so-bright aspiring pilot Trace ( Brigitte Kali ) in a garage.

Ahsoka Tano Voice Actress Ashley Eckstein Takes the High Road After Not Being Cast in ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2

Last week, we dropped a huge exclusive scoop about Rosario Dawson bringing The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels animated character Ahsoka Tano to life in live-action form in the second season of the Star Wars series The Mandalorian on Disney+. Needless to say, the reaction from fans was mostly one of pure excitement that this character was being brought in to the live-action Star Wars universe.

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Brings Back Ahsoka Tano in “Gone With a Trace”

Star Wars: The Clone Wars has a fan favorite returning in one of its most promising story arcs. Since Clone Wars release in 2008, Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) overcame some chilly reception and made a meaningful debut as the first onscreen female Jedi of prominence—meaning that she isn’t a background female Jedi and has centrality in the story. Overall, the risk to give Anakin Skywalker a young apprentice who discovers her autonomy ended up enriching the Star Wars universe in a major wa...

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Wraps Up the First Arc of Its Final Season With “Unfinished Business”

Star Wars: The Clone Wars has finished off the first arc of its seventh season. The final chapter of the arc, “Unfinished Businesses”, yields sharper emotional beats than the penultimate chapter , following up on the rather bittersweet moment when the rescued clone trooper Echo (Dee Bradley Baker, who voices every clone) repeats “the good old days” with ambivalence. While it’s hazy on how Echo feels about his re-integration into his Republic military, from the moment he reports for dut...

The latest episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars kicks off with a lot of action. With the long-lost clone trooper Echo (Dee Bradley Baker) back in their grasp, the clones (also voiced by Baker) and their Jedi General Anakin Skywalker (Matt Lanter) escape the Separatist outpost.

The Clone Wars Gets Into a Man Versus Machine Debate, With Some Explosions

The conflict of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is, quite literally, man versus machine: droids and clones, durasteel and synthetic flesh and bone, hurled at each other at the behest of one shadowy architect. Sometimes, that means those tools of war will question that dichotomy, and that’s good. Sometimes, that means…Read more...

Asajj Ventress is the Most Underrated Villain in All of ‘Star Wars’

They say a hero is only as good as their villain, and Star Wars has plenty of great villains. From the pure relentless force of horror that is Darth Vader, to Darth Sidious’ ability to manipulate even the most powerful beings in the galaxy, to Darth Maul’s flair and viciousness, the franchise has no shortage of impressive baddies. That being said, some of them didn’t get the respect they deserve, whether it was their live-action portrayal being a shadow of their animated self (General Grievo...

‘The Clone Wars’ Season 7 Review: “A Distant Echo” Explores the Practicalities of War

After the season premiere episode “The Bad Batch” last week, newly uncovered evidence left clone trooper Captain Rex (Dee Bradley Baker) more certain that his presumed-dead clone brother, Echo, may still be alive and in the Separatist enemies’ hands. Led by Jedi General Anakin Skywalker (Matt Lanter), Rex and the Bad Batch fly off to the Separatist outpost on a ravaged and dust-stormy terrain of Skako Minor to rescue Echo — that is, if he’s still alive. “A Distant Echo” scatters some humaniti...

On The Clone Wars, Everyone's a Little Tired Of Being a Tool of War

The Clone Wars has been with us for six—now seven—seasons, and while it has remained consistently delightful, the Clone Wars themselves have dragged out to a point that our heroes are really starting to feel the costs of all this fighting.

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Breakdown: The History and Details That Enrich “The Bad Batch”

It’s been a long road waiting for these last twelve episodes of Star Wars:  The Clone Wars, but now that we have them, it’s time to look at the lore they’ve drawn from or added to. This first episode, “The Bad Batch,” takes place shortly after the beginning of the Outer Rim sieges and I would guess between six and eight months before Revenge of the Sith . So far, this is almost as close to the end of the war as we’ve seen on the show, though that will all change by the end of the season. ...
