Podcast Stardust #164: Clone Wars – Chapters 17-20

by Podcast Stardust

Anakin Skywalker and Asajj Ventress duel on Yavin IV and then General Grievous makes his debut hunting down Jedi on Hypori.

Volume One of Clone Wars concludes with Anakin’s epic duel against Asajj Ventress and then General Grievous’s hunt of stranded Jedi on Hypori. These chapters tease events in The Revenge of the Sith in a way that got audiences very excited for the release of the final chapter of the prequels. Although they may have been relegated to Legends, they are still exciting stories worthy of the attention of any Star Wars fan.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Asajj hunting down the Clones dispatched to aid Anakin on Yavin IV,
  • Anakin and Asajj taking their fight to the trees of Yavin IV,
  • How the tide of the battle changes once they arrive at the temple,
  • The key use of color to highlight dramatic moments during the fight,
  • General Grievous’s debut in Clone Wars,
  • The differences between this version of Grievous and his portrayal in Revenge of the Sith and The Clone Wars, and
  • Some of the Easter eggs in the final battle of Volume One.
