Celebration V: The Clone Wars Evolution Panel Report

Delta Squad is in The Clone Wars Season III

Update: There is currently a low quality video of the Republic Commando exclusive clip on Youtube. We will post the official video if and when we get it.

The following is a report from the The Clone Wars Evolution panel from Star Wars Celebration V. Information was reported by EUCantina staff from the panel, via Twitter or email. Be ready for more updates as the week continues!

  • Season 3 will show clones training on Kamino. Concept art of training facility and Kamino.
  • Shaak Ti will be training clones on Kamino. Dave Filoni said the main reason they didn’t bring Shaak Ti into The Clone Wars in Season 1 or 2 is because they thought the young viewers might be confused between her and Ahsoka.
  • Dave Filoni went on for quite a while about the difficulty of doing the water on Kamino. He then showed some renderings of water and rain, saying that he has a very short clip from The Clone Wars Season 3 that showcases the great rain. He wants the audience to only pay attention to the rain, and nothing else in the video. Then the clip begins to play…
  • In the clip, it is raining, as a shuttle lands on Coruscant. The doors open, and standing inside the ship are four Republic Commandos. The audience (very large) goes absolutely nuts. Commandos disembark and begin to talk with Obi-Wan, Plo Koon, Adi Gallia, and Saesee Tiin. Pictures here.
  • The crowd was very loud in the first showing, and host David Collins suggests that the clip is played again, which is greeted by cheers. After it ends for the second time, Dave comments that he was sure that clip was only showing rain.
  • These Commandos are Delta Squadron, Dave confirms. Boss, Fixer, Sev, and Scorch.
  • Dave is asked by an audience member if Omega squadron will appear. He doesn’t confirm or deny the possibility.
  • A little girl asked Dave what happens to Ahsoka. Very cute, huge cheer from the crowd. Dave lowered his head into his hands before answering, as crowd continued to cheer. No answer from Dave, of course.
  • “You know why there’s no S-wing. It just looks weird.” -Dave Filoni.
  • “There are more fat Ithorians in the universe than I thought possible.” – Dave Filoni.
  • The Republic Commandos clip is shown a third time to end the panel.
  • STAY TUNED as the Celebration Five coverage continues!
