Missing The Clone Wars Yet?

Right now it feels like Season Five of The Clone Wars is a long way off. Some of its VIPs have been popping up in the news recently, though.

  • Disney and Star Wars announced last week that Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano) and James Arnold Taylor (Obi-Wan Kenobi) will be hosting Star Wars Weekends, which starts May 18th and runs Fridays-Sundays through June 10th. Get your fix of Star Wars riding Star Tours or watching Padawans kick Sith butt at Jedi Training Academy, then laugh until you cry watching Hyperspace Hoopla.
  • Just today Disney revealed the rest of the Star Wars Weekends VIP list, which includes Dee Bradley Baker (Captain Rex and the other clones), Tom Kane (Yoda) and Nika Futterman (Asajj Ventress) from The Clone Wars, plus Star Wars movie personalities like Ray Park, Jake Lloyd, and Daniel Logan.
  • Ashley Eckstein, also the founder of Her Universe, has a monthly appearance on Fictional Frontiers. Find out what Ashley thinks about The Hunger Games in her latest interview.
  • This past week Celebration VI announced that The Clone Wars head honcho Dave Filoni (and hat!) will be attending. I can’t wait to see what clips he’ll bring along this year.
  • Stephen Stanton has taken his character Moralo Eval and run with it, telling the Creepiest. Bedtime. Stories. Ever. (Does anyone else think he kind of sounds like the narrator in the Haunted Mansion ride at Disney?)
  • Cat Taber (Padmé Amidala) was spotted by Imperial spies working on a voiceover for “special project” for the Humane Society.
  • When he’s not playing a hero on television, Matt Lanter (Anakin Skywalker) has to be one in real life. He saved a hummingbird from certain doom!

While we’re waiting for the next season, Megan, Lex, and I have been discussing Season Four. Part One is posted; look for Part Two some time next week.
