I've been back from Comic-Con just one week and still haven't caught up on all my coverage! While at Comic-Con I was lucky enough to interview some of the fabulous crew from Star Wars: Clone Wars!! As you know, Season 4 is coming out this Fall and the Force was with me as I got to chat with Dave Filoni, Joel Aron, Ashley Eckstein and Dee Bradley Baker about what's next for Anakin, Ahsoka, and the Clones!
First up is Supervising Director, Dave Filoni. Dave's a totally awesome dude and I met him last year at Star Wars Celebration. He is super excited about the next season and talks about Anakin, genius animation of the show and what the fans can expect in the latest season. Oh and you also will find out if he lets me try on his signature cowboy hat!
Ok, so Joel Aron, the Visual Effects Supervisor has been a great friend to me for, gulp, 18 YEARS! We met while working at ILM together! Joel made the jump from live action to fully-animated series on The Clone Wars. He is just so talented and talked me about all the hard work that goes behind the scenes in creating the series and how passionate he is about it all - "cinematic, poetic and stunning" are the 3 words he uses to describe Season 4.
Ashley Eckstein is just so lovely and I got to talk to her about her role as the young Padawan Ahsoka Tano, and how Ahsoka "kicks butt in Season 4!" Oh and she showed me her new BSG toaster necklace from Her Universe!
Did you know that Dee Bradley Baker is known by his fans as the "Voice Over Jesus?" And Dee is a riot because he'll bust out the most craziest sounds, he's like a ventriloquist! No wonder he can be the voice actor for all the Clone Troopers!
