Clone Wars: Weapons Factory Clip With Ahoska & Barriss Offee

Can the two Padawans destroy the droid factory?



The action continues on Star Wars: The Clone Wars this Friday, November 13 at 9:00 pm on Cartoon Network.  Continuing their campaign against the Geonosian droid factory, the fate rests in the hands of two Padawans. 
 
Ahsoka Tano and Barriss Offee are on a desperate, last ditch effort to destroy the droid foundry without their respective Jedi Masters.  They soon find themselves deep in the Geonosian catacombs on a deadly journey into darkness.  They must now rely on each other's strengths to find the light and complete their mission.  Will they be a match for the Geonosian Warriors?
 
Meredith Salenger talks about her experience voicing Barriss:

Her Jedi Master is Luminara Unduli, who is very by-the-book and ordered. As a loyal student, Barriss tends to be just as structured in her approach to dealing with situations. However, I think the more time she spends with Ahsoka, the more she tends to improvise a bit and trust her own instincts. Like most relationships, you are always learning from your friends who have different attitudes about life. When Barriss is with Ahsoka, her vulnerability and curiosity come out. With best friends, you can’t help but be influenced by one another. 

Here's a clip from this Friday's episode:

Isn't it interesting that only a few years ago this level of computer animation wouldn't have been available for a regular TV series.Before, this would of been animated in a traditional manner and probably take ten times longer. It looks fluid, but still captures the style of the Genndy Taratkovsky's Samurai Jack style of artwork that was used for those Clone Wars mini series that were released directly before the Attack of the Clones movie.
 
It's a little hard to really get into the series, because you know with this style of prequel that bout 99.8% of all these heroes die, and you know how it happens for most of them.

I get that.  It's not about how it ends but the journey to the end.  The same could be said for Episodes I-III.  I just see it as entertainment seeing the details of what we missed.

Feels more like a horror movie  to me.

I still enjoy it better then the last 3 movies.  I've made this analogy before, but the characters are so dry in the movies, and the show gives each one a little bit more perosonality.  Anakin isn't a little bitch either, even tho that's what was required of him in the movies.

I hear you, but it's a bit different with this. I grew up watching the original Star Wars movies. I went into the previous three with the idea of what was going to happen. With kids, those last three were most likely their first three.
 
This TV series is targeted toward kids and Star Wars fans alike. Kids watch this and enjoy the characters they get attached. Only for them to find out that many of them will die and the built up hero behind the series, Aniki, is the one responsible for a lot of it.

@FoxxFireArt: I'm a huge Star Wars fan.  I was old enough to remember seeing Episode IV when it was first released in theaters.  I know that kind of dates me...

Yep, it makes it hard to read some of the books during the Clone Wars.  Although, I have really gotten into the Republic Commando and Imperial Commando series of books.  The view of the clones on the war, the Sparti produced clones, and their Jedi Masters make for a really interesting side.  You can really see where everything went really wrong with the order in those books.  This series of cartoons really fleshes out some of this as well and adds to then entire war between the Seps and the Republic.  Also makes the books even more enjoyable.
