Special Action Packed Episode Of Clone Wars Airs Wednesday Night

Looks like the Republic will be facing some crazy odds in "Landing At Point Rain."



Star Wars: The Clone Wars is having a airing an action packed episode this WEDNESDAY, November 4.  "Landing At Point Rain" will premiere on Cartoon Network at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.  In the episode, the Geonosian campaign begins and the Repbulic will face impossible odds, an impregnable fortress and a battle like nothing you've ever seen.
 
This is the first chapter in a massive four-part story arc.  Anakin, Ahsoka and Ki-Adi-Mundi lead a landing party to destroy a droid factory that has been rebuilt on Geonosis.  Things don't go according to plan when Separatist gunners shoot down the Republic ships.  Anakin and Ki-Adi-Mundi must rendezvous in time to destroy the factory before it can begin production.  This episode will feature more intensity than seen in previous episodes.

“Internally, we just keep getting better and better,” says Dave Filoni, supervising director of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS. “There’s no way we could have done something like this in the first season. We just didn’t have the assets to populate a battle this big, but we’ve learned so much and we’re still learning. It’s pretty amazing to be able to do something so theatrical and ambitious.”

“George [Lucas] wanted ‘Landing at Point Rain’ to be as intense as any live-action movie about the assault on Omaha Beach,” says Brian Kalin O’Connell, the episode’s director. “In order to give it that sense of frenetic intensity, we needed to be able to have a fully populated background. This episode was a challenge to our studios and is a testament to what we were all capable of doing in Season Two. George challenged us to make something big and didn’t let us deliver anything that didn’t raise the bar for the whole series.  This episode was filled with challenges but I am really happy with how it turned out. It’s non-stop, in-your-face action, and I hope the fans like it.”

Here's a clip from Wednesday's episode, "Landing At Point Rain."

The show is great.  I like it better then the last three movies because the characters are more individualized, and have more personality then the film versions.  Eveyone in the movies was dry except for whiney ass  Anakin.

It's going to be on Wendsday? Are you sure that's right? Because I'm looking at my DVR's schedule for Wendsday and it's got Johnny Test on instead?

@War Killer: I got this info and the video directly from Lucasfilm.  Also, watch the entire video.  It even says WEDNESDAY at the end.  It might be that your DVR is not up to date through your cable provider.  There's been times I've tried recording something only to have some other crap recorded instead.

It probably is my DVR, and yea I've been there, the same thing happens when I'm trying to watch the Spectacular Spider-Man and it yapes something completely different.
