The Star Wars Universe is known for it's huge variety of aliens and characters. On the next all-new Star Wars: The Clone Wars, get ready to see a creature that you've never seen before, at least not in Star Wars. "The Zillo Beast" airs Friday, April 19 on Cartoon Network at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In trying to turn the tide of a battle on Malastare, Chancellor Palpatine orders Jedi to unleash the Rebpublic's newest super-weapon, an untested electron bomb. Unfortunately the bomb awakens a fearsome monster of legendary ferocity. The Jedi Knights will see if Yoda was right in saying "size matters not."
We will find out if Mace Windu has what it takes to lead the Jedi against this beast.
“The format of the show allows us to do a lot of different things, and George came to us with the idea – basically – of doing a Clone Wars take on Godzilla,” says Supervising Director Dave Filoni. “He knows I’m a big Godzilla fan, so it was a bizarre story meeting when he presented the idea. I was actually a little intimidated to take it on, because it presented such a production challenge; the model for the Zillo was so much bigger and more complex than anything we’d done before. This whole episode showcases a scope we haven’t really seen yet in The Clone Wars. It’s huge. Luckily, a giant monster in Star Wars isn’t that absurd. And we were able to add our own signature, because it’s the nature of the Jedi to want to subdue the beast rather than to destroy it – just as it’s the nature of the power-mongers to want to harness the Zillo’s power. The result is a lot of fun – big, destructive fun.”
