Clone Wars News and Rumors: IMDB Listing of Darth Maul and Savage Opress in TCW Season Finale False According to Lucasfilm.

2/22/11:  UPDATE

Updating the story I posted yesterday regarding IMDB's cast listing for The Clone Wars Season 3 Finale, Episode 3.22 "Wookiee Hunt."  Big Shiny Robot Editor Bryan Young received confirmation from Lucasfilm that this cast listing was inaccurate, debunking this rumor.  For More on the story head over to Big Shiny Robot.

The IMDB listing for our S3 Season Finale contains some incorrect information – but while neither Darth Maul nor Savage Opress will be featured in the episode, we will be marking the Clone Wars debut of Chewbacca, one of the Star Wars Saga’s most iconic and beloved characters.
Original Article:

I caution that this is totally unconfirmed, but someone has posted the following casting information on IMDB for the Season Finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Episode 3.22 "Wookiee Hunt."  

It has Clancy Brown who previously voiced Savage Opress in the Nightsisters arc, and Stephen Stanton who is appearing in the current story arc (Citadel and Counter Attack) as Captain Tarkin listed as appearing in the episode. 

Curiously it has Stanton who has previously done some minor work on TCW as Mas Amedda, Brother Viscus and a few minor characters, as voicing Darth Maul.

More curious still it has only these characters and Tom Kane as the Narrator listed in the cast portion of the information.

At this point this may be nothing more then a red herring.  Though if Savage and Maul where to appear in the Season Finale it would likely be a brief glimpse in the closing seconds of the episode to set up and  tease Season 4 (as I speculated in this POST).

This entry on IMDB was first mentioned on Twitter by The S.W. Underworld ( @Theswunderworld ) who also has a Facebook Page.


  1. It should also be noted that Stanton provided the voice of Darth Maul in Star Wars: Battlefront II. If this is true, I'm disappointed they couldn't get the man who voiced Maul in Episode One. They can get Liam Neeson, but not Peter Serafinowicz?


    False. All lies
