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.
Here's a clip from Wednesday's episode, "Landing At Point Rain."
“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.”
And don't forget you can get season 1 on DVD and Blu-ray TODAY.
