Hey there Star Wars: Clone Wars fans! Another new episode "Altar of Mortis" this Friday awaits!! And the Dark Side gets its hands on sweet Ahsoka!
Before the Jedi can leave Mortis, Ahsoka Tano is taken captive in an attempt to entice Anakin Skywalker to join the dark side. Meanwhile, the mysterious Father tries to prevent a disastrous showdown between his children which would upset the increasingly precarious balance of the Force. Two potential destinies become clear in “Altar of Mortis,” the second chapter of a three-part Clone Wars storyline.
Sam Witwer, the rock of hotness who gave his voice and likeness to both the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed games portrays the Force-powered Son in The Clone Wars. “The character of the Son has very similar motivations [to the Emperor],” says Witwer, “You have the Son, who's the dark side of the Force, you have the Daughter, who's the good side of the Force, and then you have the unifying Father, who's the balance between the two. The Son believes that the balance is skewed and that he should have more influence – and if he could have more influence, the galaxy could be a better place. For that reason it is chiefly important for him to get his hands on Anakin and influence him as fast as he can. My character, the Son, absolutely targets Anakin.”
“Clone Wars is continuing to push the limits of what’s possible in Star Wars,” he says. “It is the best kids show ever made. Ever. I take it very seriously. What I love about this Mortis story is that it is all of the Star Wars movies wrapped up into three Clone Wars episodes, and completely mythological. It's going to be something that's really exciting.”
