The Mandalorian Death Watch returns in ‘A Friend in Need,’ tonight’s episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. As mentioned all the way back around Comic-Con last year, Katee Sackhoff will be voicing one of the Mandos, Boca Raton Bo-Katan. Jon Favreau returns to his role voicing Pre Viszla. The episode will focus mostly on Ahsoka coming to the aid of her Separatist friend, Lux Bonteri, who has gotten himself in over his head with Count Dooku, as shown in the second clip, below.
Dave Filoni has revealed to Entertainment Weekly that Katee Sackhoff, best know for her role as Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica will be coming to Star Wars: The Clone Wars in season four.
He also talks about having multi-episode arcs, bringing Walter Murch to direct an episode, and the complete lack of Ben Quadinaros. Focusing on the season three finale, Filoni discusses pairing Ahsoka and Chewbacca, a cute The Big Lebowski reference, and having ramped up the action as well as character deaths.
I’m beyond sick of the ‘California Girls’* filks, but y’all are sure to get a kick out of this. (And how can you not love Seth Green in the Snoop Dogg role?) Already seen? Bonnie interviews Team Unicorn.
* Yes, I know that’s not how Katy Perry spells it. I guess they don’t have spell check in Candyland.
There’s an interview with Katee Sackhoff in the new Entertainment Weekly. The article isn’t up on their site yet, but they have posted two behind-the-scenesvideos, with a third to come.
io9 also got in on some season-pimping conference call action, and they borrowed EW’s photos to boot. Check out what Sackhoff had to say about Starbuck, Cylons, Bionic Woman and BSG’s secret to reinventing sci-fi.
Batman Begins won Best Fantasy Film, and Lost and Battlestar Galactica both won for Best TV series in their respective catagories. Christian Bale, Matthew Fox, James Callis, Katee Sackhoff and Serenity’s Summer Glau all took home actor awards.
