Star Wars: Clone Wars: Rise Of The Bounty Hunters Begins!

Get ready for the premiere of Season 2 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars this Friday!



Have I mentioned before how much I enjoyed the first season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network.  The first season was pretty consistent throughout then really took off in the last few episodes.  In the final episode, we were introduced to the brutally ruthless bounty hunter, Cad Bane.  It turns out, he's far from finished giving everyone a hard time.  
 
Rise Of The Bounty Hunters starts off with the premiere of two episodes this Friday, October 2, 2009.  The bounty hunters will take the spotlight in "Holocron Heist" and "Cargo Of Doom."  Bane has been hired to infiltrate the Jedi Temple in order to steal a valuable Holocron.  If you've seen him last season, you know that he won't let anyone stand in his way.  What's going to happen when Ahsoka is assigned to guard the Jedi Archive (as punishment for disobeying orders)?  

"The concept [for Cad Bane] actually dates back all the way to the first film, which drew inspirations from all sorts of genres, including westerns," says Lucas, creator and executive producer of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS. "When it came time to introduce the idea of a ruthless bounty hunter type for the series, it was a natural fit. He's a classic gunslinger - mysterious and also merciless. It's been a thematic part of Star Wars since the beginning."

Here's a clip showing Cade Bane getting a message from a certain dark Jedi...

Ahsoka is going to die, Because Anakin was using a green lightsaber and that can only mean 2 things she is dead or she has been captured. But I think she might die in the 2nd season trying to protect the jedi temple or something

I've always been a Boba Fett guy but I'm really liking this Cade Bane. I think maybe cause he reminds me of Lee Van Cleef as Angel Eyes in The Good, The Bad , & The Ugly.

Cade Bane.How can a guy with a name like that not cause the jedi trouble? I mean he wears a big hat and a trench coat....his middle name is "I make short work of Jedi".

Boba Fett would still be pretty young at this time and we all know what happened to Jango...

If there is one thing Clone wars has shown us is that with the Marvel Disney merger that 3d action stories with comic like characters can be done right.  The Jedi's give us that vision.

Well...lets see how they ruin my precious Mandalorians. :(

He should do, after all at this point he's going around the Galaxy learning his trade.

That's really funny...because I think that if there's one thing that this new Clone Wars has shown...it's that Lucas still refuses to take a cartoon seriously. It's immature, goofy, and completely contradiction of established continuity. That’s as far from “right” as you can get.

 Oh they will. They'll be stupidly moronic, shoot each other, crack one-liners, slap-stick jokes, silly nicknames, etc. Just like all the others in this series...

I'm pretty sure young Boba spends some time with Aurra Sing at some point.

@G-Man: Indeed he does, soon ends up getting Slave 1 back and heading out on his own. Weird, Sing is still knocking around the galaxy as late as The Second Galactic Civil War
