So what did you think?

UPDATE!

Cool interview about the last season with Dave Filoni. (via EW)

What was your honest reaction to Clone Wars getting pulled from Cartoon Network?
 

Dave Filoni: I think because I’ve been with show since very beginning and I was well aware of where it stood I wasn’t too surprised. We achieved what we set out to achieve with Cartoon Network. The pinnacle was winning the Emmy for season 5. An animated series running this long isn’t very common except in prime-time. Kids that started watching this when they were 10 were now 15 and they might be getting into different things. Cartoon Network let us do a lot of bold things for animated shows. We were intense at times, we were dark at times, and they hung in there with us. I’m just happy now these episodes have found a home — I couldn’t be happier with this launch. It’s a great way to watch the story.

How did the final batch end up on Netflix as opposed to a Disney-owned network?

Filoni: I wouldn’t be aware of specifics around the decision. As a creative, it gives Clone Wars its own place in its own room. We’ve shifted to a whole new regime here, we’re shifting to new story content. I love the place Clone Wars has on Netflix; it’s very accessible and I think its great. Could it have played on a Disney Channel of some sort? I’m sure it could have. But we’re making an exciting new vision that I think fits our new relationship and it has forged a relationship with Disney that we’ve excited about. I think everything has found its proper home.


So does the show have an ending? Or is 13 where the production basically stopped?
 
Filoni: One of the reasons I was okay with us ending when we did and production shifting from Clone Wars to Rebels is I liked the idea of having this Yoda arc available to us because I felt like this was a great place to have an ending if it’s going to end. There’s been so many threads throughout the five seasons, if you were to try and wrap them all up each one would be its own big episode. Here we have two story acts within this the 13 that have a strong connection to the franchise, they’re very important to understanding the overall saga. They’re [creator George Lucas'] last statement about Yoda and The Force and how things fit together. If you’re a die-hard fan, they’re absolutely must-watch story content. As I think fans realized, this wasn’t just fun storytelling in the Star Wars universe. These were very much George Lucas’ stories and he felt they were as important as his other work.

What’s the coolest thing about these last episodes?

Filoni: I would jump right to Yoda. One thing people ask year after year is when you are going to do more with Yoda. We tried several seasons to tell a Yoda arc, but the problem is he’d come in and be able to solve a problem in five minutes. In the end, George finally decided to tell a big story about The Force and the balance of The Force and what it means when some people appear after they die and some don’t. Fans have long wondered about that. This goes a long way to explaining that issue. These are things that were the backbone of his Jedi ideas. How can a Star Wars fan not get excited by that?

And the Order 66 storyline where the clones are ordered to kill the Jedi? How far into that do we get?

Filoni: We get heavily into Order 66. This is the other big thing George really wanted to lay down — these are the mechanics of how and why this worked. It’s all told from the side of the clones and that’s not something you saw in the movies at all. Because we’ve made the clones so personal it became a compelling question: Are they aware of all this and what would happen if they became aware of it? It will change the way you look at the third film.

Fans also wonder about an original Clone Wars character, Ahsoka Tano. Is there closure for her?

Filoni: I can’t say she’s not in the 13, but she’s not a main character. There is a moment. Obviously there were plans for Ahsoka that haven’t happened yet. I love the character. She was one of those things we were proud of. The fans really came to respect her. That story isn’t finished yet but I’m still here so you never know.

So is this firmly It? No chance of any additional content, such as a two-hour special or something, to wrap up some more story threads? 

Filoni: I always think of Yoda in these moments — the future is always in motion. Projects you think are no-brainers stall, and other things see the light of day. You never count anything out. I know the stories that are untold. I think they’re great. I’d love to see them told in some medium, some how. I’ve become a protector of those stories. [Lucasfilm president] Kathleen Kennedy understands the value of the stories we were going to tell. I’m sure we’ll find a way to find root for them in some manner in the future. I hope to be around for a long time.

  4. I just finished watching the first 4 episodes (order 66 arc). It was pretty darn good. It left me wanting to beat up the Sith for being so evil. However, I also want to beat up the Jedi for being so stupid. p.s. I love Fives!

  5. How much do the Kaminoans know about protocol (order) 66? Who do they think Lord Tyrannus is exactly? Are they being duped too? That's what it seems like but I'm not sure.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That confused me a bit too... At one point, immediately after talking with Dooku, the doctor said: "I can't understand these Jedi, too spiritual." So think they think "Tyrannus" is a Jedi, but only him and Sifo Dias where to know about things for the Jedi Order's own.. 'saftey'

      Delete
    2. It's the Sith, Absolutely being duped! On arrival too Kamino in AoTC, it is revealed to Kenobi, the order being placed by jedi knight Tyrannus. As far as the knowledge of (order)66, the Kaminoans created the clones, being subject to their conditioning and program. Yes indeed! although, they may not have been fully aware of it's purpose.

      Delete
  6. Kaminioans know everything they in it for the money & prestige they dont care about lives....its win win for them as the Republic just order replacement clones.

  13. I have a friend who is starting to watch the show and he wants to watch some of season 6 tonight and I was just wondering is what happened to Ahsoka mentioned in any of these episodes because I do not want that spoiled for him. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ahsoka's expulsion is mentioned indirectly in episode 11 "Voices" when Obi-Wan says, "It wouldn't be the first time the Council was wrong recently." She also appears in a vision to Yoda in episode 12 "Destiny." The incident is only made sadder when she mentions her expulsion. Unfortunately, the rest of her story will have to be told elsewhere. But we can always dream.

  14. Hmmm.. To put in terms Yoda would understand, Bullshit the last two episodes are. The Order 66 arc was actually pretty good, despite knowing how it would end..

  15. Oh, by the way everybody, Korriban is *STILL* an official name, Moraband is just an additional one...so..that's alright I guess..

    1. Your going to call the whole 3 episodes with yoda bad just because they changed the name of the sith home world? I think you need to look past that and the good stuff that was there. Btw, mark hamill voiced someone in that episode.

      Delete
    2. No, I'm gong to call them bad because they were bad. "The birthplace of Midiclorians.." There WERE good things there, but trying to explain the oriin of the Force...shouldn't be done... I also found the sequences of Palpatine an Dooku spying on Yoda and the fight between Palpatine and Yoda in side their minds to be really daft. Something can be BS and entertaining at the same time though Sir Roz

    - Done basic design.
    - Made a simple system to simply add movies + mirrors.
    - Recorded 2 seasons of the clonewars(still got loads of work to do)
    - Purchased domain from a offshore registar
    - Purchased 6 servers all in different locations to provide 100% uptime.
    - Setup a simple HD streaming server(So I don't have to use other places and externally do it so I don't have to worry about dead mirrors).
    - Setup a simple CDN, give people the option of what country they can view movies in(automatically detects the server closest to you).

  37. Tell us something new Dave please this sounds so tired and dragged out just a rehash of what GL has told you to put on screen not exactly pushing the creative envelope is it?.i could understand if you had won the Emmy for Clone Wars like Genndy did for innovative articulate inventive story telling (of your Vision) at least i would give more credit for trying, but pushing the same STORY over and over again like the yes man you and Rick Mccallum are has become tiresome and boring.The worst thing about the clone wars season 6 in my opinion ,which indefensible is destroying 37 years of history by allowing the Sith planet Korriban to be changed to Morriban despite being known as that in the books, comics, games EU since Star Wars began.Is nothing sacred anymore well like Irvin Kershner and again Genndy people will remember their legacy for quality of work not the cheap tired inane fillers people like you choose to represent.
