The episode guide teaser page for this week’s The Clone Wars episode: ‘Senate Spy’ is up. Is there a Separatist conspiracy in the Senate? Padmé, at the request of the Jedi Council, goes undercover to find out.
CartoonNetwork.com launches a new The Clone Wars game online, Star Wars: The Clone Wars Game Creator as part of their overall site re-design, allowing players to customize their own game levels and pick a character and ship to use in them, and have other players rate it.

The first two are straight-up clips, quality time with Jocasta Nu and another Bane bit. (Is there any part of the premiere that we haven’t seen a bit of yet?) The third is a peek at the animation with Dee Bradley Baker, Matt Lanter, Catherine Taber and Dave Filoni.

Does he want a shot at the Jedi, like Anakin Skywalker? Read it and find out!

Winceworthy. Geekdad’s Lonnie Morgan gets a bit too into reading Star Wars novels and celebrates by inflicting yet another round of fantasy casting upon the internets. (I dislike this kind of thing: They all tend to come out in fail.) There’s also a poll on which (if any) EU series/era you’d like to see come to the screen.
