Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Season 2, Episode 6 //
A first look at an upcoming episode of The Clone Wars. See new episodes on television every Friday on the Cartoon Network, and online each following Monday on StarWars.com.
Discovered as a slave on Tatooine by Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker had the potential to become one of the most powerful Jedi ever, and was believed by some to be the prophesied Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force. A hero of the Clone Wars, Anakin was caring and compassionate, but also had a fear of loss that would prove to be his downfall.
Ahsoka Tano, a Togruta female, was the Padawan learner to Anakin Skywalker and a hero of the Clone Wars. Alongside Anakin, she grew from headstrong student into a mature leader. But her destiny laid along a different path than the Jedi.
Luminara Unduli served the Jedi Order in the final years of the Galactic Republic. A green-skinned female humanoid, Luminara was a trusted advisor to the Jedi Council and the Republic government. When crises demanded it, she and her faithful Padawan learner, Barriss Offee, would rush into the thick of conflict, where their incredible talents with the lightsaber blade served them well. Following Order 66, the fate of Luminara remained a mystery. Yet 14 years after the formation of the Empire, an underground Holonet transmission revealed that she was being held in The Spire prison. It was all a ruse, however; Luminara was dead, her body used as bait to draw surviving Jedi Kanan Jarrus and his apprentice Ezra Bridger into the Inquisitor's clutches.
Poggle the Lesser was the leader of the insect-like Geonosians throughout the era of the Clone Wars. Due to his control of the Geonosian battle droid factories, he was a powerful figure within the Confederacy of Independent Systems and commanded the droid armies that fought against the Republic in two battles for control of Geonosis. At the end of the war, Poggle lost his life to Darth Vader.
A harsh rocky world less than a parsec away from Tatooine, Geonosis is a ringed planet beyond the borders of the Galactic Republic. Its uninviting surface is made up of harsh, rocky desert, and the creatures that evolved on Geonosis are well equipped to survive in the brutal environment. The most advanced lifeform are the Geonosians, sentient insectoids that inhabit towering spire-hives. The Geonosians maintain large factories for the production of droids and weapons for the Separatist cause in the Clone Wars.
The Mirialan Padawan to Luminara Unduli, Barriss preferred learning and studying the ancient Jedi texts in the Temple to being in the midst of war. A bit older than most Padawans, she follows everything her Master says to the letter, without question. So when she must work together with the young and impetuous Ahsoka in the middle of a battle, she must use all her training to survive the war and Ahsoka's extremely forward nature.
