This is madness!
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and the all-new episodes coming thanks to #CloneWarsSaved, we’re undertaking a full chronological rewatch of the five original seasons, The Lost Missions, and the theatrical release. We’d be honored if you would join us and share your thoughts on the award-winning series.
72: “Nomad Droids” (Season Four, Episode 6)
"Who's the more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him?"
Forced to escape a Separatist attack in a Y-wing fighter, C-3PO and R2-D2 visit the world of the Patitites, the odd planet Balnab, and the inside of a pirate warship where they are forced to fight in an arena.
Size matters not.
In an arc that began last week, this installment is a bit of a departure from the typical Clone Wars stories. The fate of the galaxy still hangs in the balance as the war rages on, but the adventures of C-3PO and R2-D2 inject some much-needed levity and whimsy.
Inspired by some classic storytelling tropes, their ship crash lands and C-3PO quite accidentally kills the diminutive leader of the Patitites, the Big Hay-Zu, freeing them to form a democracy of their own (once they're done shocking and tying up the droids, that is.)
