“Star Wars: The Clone Wars” is wrapping up season 5 with an epic four-part finale that will no doubt be some of the best – if not THE BEST Clone Wars episodes ever released.
Yahoo! TV has an exclusive trailer that Star Wars fans have been eating up. Even if you haven’t seen every episode of this amazing series I believe EVERY FAN can join in from this point and get hooked. For those of us like me who has seen the show blossom over the past five seasons there looks to be a lot of things going on with our main characters that point to where the rest of the show’s direction for the next few season leading up the “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.”
Set your hyperdrive for the Disney’s Hollywood Studios sector for May and early June, for the 2013 edition of Star Wars Weekends. This year’s Force-filled fun will take place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 17 – June 9, 2013.
While details are still being planned, we’re excited to announce that James Arnold Taylor and Ashley Eckstein are returning as celebrity hosts for the annual special event. James, the voice behind many of the most famous animated characters in film, television and commercials, is known to Star Wars fans as the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series. Ashley, who started her show business career as a parade dancer at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, is the voice of Anakin’s ambitious Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, on Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS—STRANGE ALLIES
Check out the latest “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” comic from Dark Horse featuring one of my favorite Star Wars writers Ryder Windham!
With so many Jedi Generals occupied with the Clone Wars, assignments that would usually go to Knights or Masters are falling to Jedi in training–in this case, masterless Padawan Nuru Kungurama. Accompanied by his squad of clone troopers and a hulking swoop biker named Gizz, Nuru’s job begins as a routine protection detail but soon evolves to include a mystery massacre, the hijacking of a space freighter, and the kidnapping of a group of orphaned younglings!
Ryder Windham’s Breakout Squad from the prose series The Clone Wars: Secret Missions comes to comics!
