‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ cast and crew discuss final episode

Dave Filoni discusses the end of the series

Over the weekend, Star Wars released a video on their official YouTube channel featuring some key members of Star Wars: The Clone Wars‘ cast and crew discussing the final episode of the series.

Listen to the latest episode of our Star Wars podcast, Talkin' Tauntauns!

The featurette includes a great deal of insight from executive producer/supervising director Dave Filoni along with some thoughts from Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano), Dee Bradley Baker (Rex/Clone Troopers) and James Arnold Taylor (Obi-Wan Kenobi). For those of you who’ve watched the episode multiple times (like me), you can jump ahead to 1:15 to skip the recap and get right to the good stuff.

I know a lot of people dismiss these type of in-house featurettes as fluff, but there’s a lot of genuinely good stuff in this one. I particularly liked Filoni’s discussion about how different this view of Order 66 was from what we saw in Revenge of the Sith, which was primarily due to how the the series had personalized the clone troopers.

Also, it was pretty cool to hear Filoni single out the same dichotomy between Ahsoka’s treatment of the turned clones and Yoda (who famously chopped off Commander Gree’s head) that we discussed on last week’s Talkin’ Tauntauns Podcast.

As far as voice cast is concerned, you can tell just how much it meant to them to give the series a proper ending, particularly Ashley Eckstein. This hopefully isn’t the last time we’ll ever get to see her portray Ahsoka, but if it was, she turned in the best of many exceptional performances.

About the only thing I didn’t enjoy was how Filoni and the cast spoke so definitively about there never being any more Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes. Yes, the show got the brilliant ending it deserved, but I selfishly wish we could explore just a few more of the series’ untold/unfinished tales.

For now, however, I’ll take all the featurettes, interviews, and retrospectives about Star Wars: Clone Wars that I can get. If you’re in the same boat, then Star Wars Kids also released a short trivia video about ‘Victory or Death.’ One cool thing I didn’t know was that they used a live choir to record the episode’s opening music.

All episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars are currently available on Disney+. If you plan to binge them all, make sure to watch the episodes in their chronological order.
