In a new video commentary for last week’s episode of The Clone Wars, supervising director Dave Filoni explains how Darth Revan and Darth Bane almost appeared in “Ghosts of Morits”. The ancient Sith Lords were to be an evil influence to the Son. The character models for Bane and Revan were created, and the scene was created, but it never made it into the final episode. Filoni explains what happened:
We designed them. They are in The Clone Wars style. We modeled them in The Clone Wars style, and we shot the scene in the episode. The scene exists. But it never made it into animation, it only existed in layout. I was very apprehensive of this scene, as cool as it was, because the implication of it. Which is that, these Sith Lords could separate themselves from the Force, and somehow talk to the Son.
George watches it, and he loved it, it was great. But eventually, I got a call from George. And he said, you know, I’ve been really thinking about this, and we should really take that scene out, with the Sith Lords.
You can watch the entire commentary here, which includes images of The Clone Wars models of Bane and Revan.
Would you have liked to see the scene, or are you glad that it was removed? We may see more of Revan and Bane in the special features of the Season 3 DVD.
