Episode #3 - Shadow of Malevolence

"STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS puts a new shine on a very recognizable part of Star Wars lore as the Y-wing bombers make their debut in “Shadow of Malevolence,” an all-new episode of the hit animated series premiering at 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10, on Cartoon Network.

In the second of a three-episode arc, “Shadow of Malevolence” finds Anakin Skywalker, his Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Jedi Master Plo Koon utilizing long-range Y-wing bombers to lead a bold strike on General Grievous’ warship, the Malevolence, and its destructive ion cannon.

The Y-wing bombers were first seen among the Rebel Alliance’s primary starfighters in 1977’s Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. “Shadow of Malevolence” director Brian Kalin O’Connell, writer Steve Melching and supervising director Dave Filoni were inspired by the concept of showing the Y-wings “fresh off the showroom floor.”

“We like to find ways to draw connections between The Clone Wars and the original trilogy,” Melching says. “In the original Star Wars, the X-wings and the Y-wings have truly been through the wars, and they’ve had the crap beaten out of them. We thought it would be fun to imagine that they were originally manufactured during the Clone Wars – so for us, they came off the assembly line and into battle.”

O’Connell says the artists behind The Clone Wars were excited about “introducing” the Y-wings – and putting the series’ lead characters into a full-fledged space battle for the first time.

“Guys like (design/concept artists) Russell Chong and Killian Plunkett, along with Dave (Filoni) come from a classic Star Wars background, so they understand that Ralph McQuarrie feel of the 1970s, and they do it right,” O’Connell says. “We don’t want to change the lore, we want to add to it. By introducing the Y-wings, we get to add a new dimension, a little history.” Some people, he realizes, might think that it’s “just a vehicle.” Nevertheless, O’Connell says, “We know it’s a huge deal for the fans. We don’t let it distract from the story, but we still get to add the geek shot – and when we do, we try to do it justice.”

Yay for Y Wings!

Also if this is part 2 of 3, can't wait to find out what they do in the final one... 3 way saber battle with Grievous would be too much to ask for..

Y-Wings...

I' not really hating, but why does everything have to be based off of everything else?

Well, it does make sense that the vehicles won't change that much in 20 years.

It's also reasonable to assume that those older models are still in use. Especially by a rebellion that can't get their hands on the newest models of warfare.

I am Inclined to think that these are merely Clone Wars ERA Y-WINGS not the ones we see the Rebellion Using...The Clone Era Y-Wings would be less advanced more like the ETA Actis and the A-WING or the ARC 170 and the X-WING I believe its just merely a i dont wanna say Prototype but more like a PHASE I model of the Y-Wing in which we see PHASE II or III for the Rebellion

Cars are a poor comparison- try jet fighters. You will easily find models of those that are in for decades.

Like the F16... it's been out there for over 30 years. They've had modifications, but they still look the same as the first one.

Slightly sloppy writing aside, I've really been enjoying this so far.

I laughed when I saw the Y-Wings. They're similar enough that you recognise them instantly, but still different enough to obviously be an earlier model.

The attack on the Malevolence was so ripping off the Death Star run, but I can kind of forgive it that because it seems they acknowledged it. Y'know, "yeah, we're using that, so here, have some references to the scene," kind of thing.

I think the series will be a not-that-guilty pleasure.

It would be appreciated if your comments were not as pointless as that one, Lord Knightfa11.

thumb up agreed!

I really enjoyed this episode... I even laughed when Grievous knocks the crap out of that annoying battle droid

I really enjoyed dog fights, and besides that whole nebula thing (which was a bit boring) the attack to the Malevolence was great and entertaining (even though it was a rip off of the Death Star Attack, it still was good)

... the ion canon exploding

Also, the episodes go up on iTunes the day after they air. And they go up on starwars.com a week after they air.
