Strange things are afoot on the planet of Naboo, and LucasFilm sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the action that happens this week on Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

In “Shadow Warrior,” this week’s episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the peace and unity that followed the defeat of the Trade Federation blockade seen in Episode I are shattered as the Gungans inexplicably march towards war against the Naboo city of Theed. Padmé Amidala rushes to investigate, discovering that General Grievous and his droid army stand poised to invade the planet. An unlikely imposter standing in for an injured Gungan leader may help stop the growing conflict, while Anakin Skywalker’s search for answers takes him into the shadowy lair of the enemy. There, the Jedi hero enters into an epic battle against his sworn enemy, Count Dooku, at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT Friday, September 23rd on Cartoon Network.

    Seems strange that the animations for this show got worse. Everybody else gets better animations.

    The animation isn’t bad . . . it just seems more cell-shaded though.

    Oh, no! How will Skywalker ever survive this fight! He is doomed! Oh, wait, he’ll be in five more movies after this and turn into Darth Vader and not get paid any residuals because of the creative accounting movie studios use, so I guess, somehow, he will survive the fight.

    That’s the main problem with the Clone Wars series, we already know the ultimate fate of the main characters. That kind of takes all the suspense out of the thing (sort of like the John Cameron film – we already KNEW the Titanic was going to sink). Maybe that’s why Lucasfilm inflicted that big Mary Sue Asoka Tanno on us, hoping to restore the missing sense of tension by giving us a major character whose fate wasn’t set in stone.
