Genndy Tartakovsky’s 2003 Star Wars: Clone Wars cartoon was (and is) unbelievable. The “micro-series” crammed the hole between Assault of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, that means that previous to The Clone Wars, it was the one alternative to see Anakin Skywalker’s life as a Jedi Knight. Concurrently broadcast and launched on-line, they have been an enormous hit and received the Excellent Animated Program Emmy in each 2004 and 2005.
However, after George Lucas determined that the CG The Clone Wars present can be canon, Tartakovsky’s present was relegated to mere visible inspiration and is now only a footnote. Now one of many Clone Wars voice actors has stated she needs there could possibly be extra.
Gray Griffin voiced Darkish Facet drive consumer Asajj Ventress on Clone Wars, although when the character made the leap to The Clone Wars one other actor took the half. Griffin revealed she has unfinished enterprise when requested about whether or not she’d wish to reprise the function:
“I’d adore that. I’m pleased with the Asajj I acquired to play, although, simply because I’m such a fan of Genndy Tartakovsky. He’s such a genius and allowed me to be a part of so a lot of his fantastic creations, together with one thing that’s arising. I can’t say what it’s but, however he’s acquired a challenge within the works I’ve acquired a pleasant half in. I’m simply glad he nonetheless continues to imagine in me.
“That’s my favourite Star Wars property. I don’t know, possibly I’m simply keen on it as a result of I used to be in it, however I simply thought it was so stunning. The unique Clone Wars he did for Cartoon Community was so graphic and delightful. It’s humorous as a result of our scripts have been solely like three pages lengthy and I used to be like, ‘Wait, how lengthy is that this cartoon? 11 minutes, proper? I solely have three strains!’ It was simply so attractive, it’s largely animation and there’s not plenty of speaking. It’s the identical with Samurai Jack. There have been these actually brief scripts and then you definitely would simply see this attractive animation… My Asajj was in my favourite Star Wars property ever, so I’m glad about that. I’m open to extra!”
I’d prefer to see extra Asajj Ventress too. Of the a whole bunch of saber battles all through Star Wars media, my favourite continues to be her face-off with Anakin on Yavin IV. There’s a unbelievable rhythm and pressure to the combat, particularly when it begins raining and the droplets fizz and crackle on their blades. Plus, it provides you a disturbing tease of Anakin going full darkish facet for the primary time.
In the event you haven’t seen the 2003 Clone Wars present, undoubtedly test it out. Regardless of the episodes being simply three minutes lengthy, they pack lots in and the format places facet characters like Mace Windu, Package Fisto, and Normal Grievous within the highlight.
Star Wars: Clone Wars is available to stream on Disney+.
