This week yet another Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode awaits us!

Star Wars: The Clone Wars returns this week with the launch of an explosive four-part story arc that puts the clone troopers on the ground of a hostile alien planet while under the command of a ruthless general, Jedi Pong Krell.

Here's the the DL:

Tensions run high as the clones carry out Krell’s difficult orders and embark on the deadly mission to take the capital of Umbara in “Darkness on Umbara."

Star Wars crafting superstar Bonnie Burton teaches you how to make Yoda puppets!

So if for some ODD reason you missed my MTV Geek live stream last Sunday from New York Comic Con, you can still watch it here on MTV Geek! We did a Star Wars Craft demo with the author of The Star Wars Craft Book Bonnie Burton! Also joining us was Ashley Eckstein, voice of Ahsoka Tano in Clone Wars and founder of Her Universe, MTV Geek's own Liz Lee and The Nerdist's Jonah Ray! My apologies for looking pregant in what I thought was a cool hooded top, somehow I always manage to dress horribly on camera! WTF? I SWEAR I DON'T LOOK LIKE THAT IN PERSON!

Star Wars Craft Demo Part 1

We had a lovely half an hour of making Yoda puppets, we changed the original instructions to make it more camera and user-friendly but still had a blast! You can follow along using the handy-dandy chart below: Read More...

This Star Wars/Indiana Jones mashup is by Paul Gulacy

Some of you may remember my review last year on the first book in the Star Wars Art Series, Visions -- well, now Lucasfilm and Abrams Publishing have released the second book in the series, Star Wars Art: Comics!

Bringing together the very best from the entire history of Star Wars comics as well as a dazzling collection of new art created just for the book, Star Wars Art: Comics features pieces from comic luminaries such as Al Williamson, Adam Hughes, John Cassaday, Sam Kieth, Mike Mignola, Paul Pope, Frank Quitely, Dave Dorman, Bill Sienkiewicz, and many more. Best of all, the art in Star Wars Art: Comics was hand-picked and curated by George Lucas!

The illustrations from Star Wars Art: Comics are all beautiful, hilarious, and thought provoking! Once again, Lucasfilm has outdone itself with this book. My favorite one is by Paul Gulacy, where Han Solo and Chewie are running away from the Death Star just like Indiana Jones ran away from that huge stone ball in Raiders. They just can't seem to shake these things -- so frakking funny and going on my wall!

Hey there, Clone Wars fans! So my head is still buzzing from last weekend's New York Comic-Con as I was able to see so much Star Wars stuff! And yet there's always more to come, with this trailer just released from Lucasfilm, the Darth Maul Returns trailer, Darth is coming back in Spring of 2012 to The Clone Wars and he's gonna be bad!!

Here's the official deets on Darth Maul's return:

Darth Maul, the sinister Sith Lord who amped up the dark side in 1999's Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, returns to the Saga this spring in Star Wars: The Clone Wars!

Revered by fans for his striking red and black tattooed-face, graceful but lethal fighting style, and signature double-bladed lightsaber, Maul was believed killed by Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi at the end of Episode I. In the Star Wars universe, however, one must never underestimate the power of the dark side!

Check out the awesome clip here:

“The decision to continue Darth Maul’s story was something that came directly from George,” says Dave Filoni, Supervising Director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. “We all agreed that his return needed to be unique, unexpected and revenge filled. We don’t know what his outcome will be, and as a fan - that’s exciting.”

While fans await Darth Maul's return to The Clone Wars, they'll soon be able to experience the excitement of his original introduction to the Star Wars Saga when Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace is released in theaters on February 10, 2012 in spectacular 3D!

Ok, seriously, aren't we all ready for a little 3D action???

Check out The Clone Wars Fridays on The Cartoon Network at 8pm ET/PT!
