Ahsoka’s Back Front and Center Today!

Today’s episode of The Clone Wars, “Sabotage,” marks the start of the four-part finale story arc to Season Five. Ever since the panels at Celebration VI, fans have been eagerly anticipating this story arc, which features a bombing of the Jedi Temple, Ahsoka on the run, the return of Asajj Ventress, and much more. These episodes are the first scripted for The Clone Wars by Charles Murray, television writer and producer and father of two big-time Ahsoka fans, who got a shout-out from Dave Filoni during the recent Google Hangout. This arc is so significant it even earned its own special trailer:

As usual, Pete Morrison at Lightsaber Rattling has a great analysis of the trailer, complete with screencaps, as well as some really intriguing speculation about what this arc might mean for Ahsoka and the entire series. So tune in at 9:30 a.m. to Cartoon Network, and set your DVRs!

The Clone Wars also was recently featured on an episode of Chris Hardwick’s All-Star Celebrity Bowling, with Team Clone Wars defeating Team Nerdist. Ashley Eckstein blogged about the experience, including pictures and a really fun video of the competition.
