The New York Times reports that everyone’s favorite Wookiee will appear in The Clone Wars two-episode season finale on April 1. Peter Mayhew will be doing the voice honors:
To portray Chewbacca for “The Clone Wars,” Mr. Mayhew was not required to don the outfit at all. (“I was doing it in my own clothing,” he said.) However, he did record dialogue for the character, having learned over the years to emulate the blend of bear growls and other animal noises used to create Chewie’s voice.
It’s a small galaxy after all, I suppose.
Meanwhile, over at Entertainment Weekly, there’s new video of Tarkin.
StarWars.com has our first look at the future Grand Moff. He’ll make his cartoon debut February 18 in ‘The Citadel.’
Kunochan.com’s top twenty starship captains. Both Han Solo and Grand Moff Tarkin (O RLY?) make the list, but I’m mostly tickled by the inclusion of Turanga Leela. Futurama: awesome animated
sci-fi show, or most awesome animated sci-fi show?
Lawrence Noble will be live-sculpting Grand Moff Tarkin at Celebration Europe. Just like at CIV, one lucky fan will get to take the bust home. There’ll also be an art show and environments by Weird & Wonderful that will “transport visitors into the world of Star Wars.”
There’s some new information regarding a cameo by a Classic Trilogy character… Namely, the official site has updated their cast list, and someone (not us) noticed. For more, check out ComingSoon’s latest Star Wars Roundup.
