SDCC 2011: Thursday Star Wars: The Clone Wars Panel Round-up

Thursday at Comic-Con brought us a Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 4 Preview Panel.

TheForce.Net had a live chat going using Cover It Live.  Some highlights include:

Regarding the 3 Part Season Premier Battle of Dac arc:
*The three episodes will be set on the Mon Cal homeworld of Dac.
*Confirmation that Admiral (then Captain) Ackbar will make an appearance.
*Reveal of new shark like Separatist Villain named Rik Enson (tentative spelling)

Other juicy tidbits:
*The Besalisk gets a name, General Krell.
*We will see a new planet, Umbara.  It is set in permanent darkness and is the homeworld of Sly Moore an aid to Palpatine.
*Characters confirmed to appear in Season 4: Savage Opress, Asajj Ventress, The Nightsisters, Cade Bane, Bossk, Boba Fett, Dengar, Clone Commandos will appear (not Delta again).

For a complete transcript please visit TFN .

Lazypadawan (@lasypadawan) has a very good summary of the panel at her, The Star Wars Prequel Appreciation Society website.

There’s also a brief glimpse at a Z-95 Headhunter, which goes back to the old Star Wars RPG from the late ’80s!
There was also discussion of designing new models for characters, especially the diving clonetroopers seen in the water battles. Apparently Captain Rex is realizing the Republic is viewing the clones as expendable.

IGN also has a great write up of the panel with some cool info such as:

And we were also shown some very early, unfinished and uncolored animation ("George has not seen this yet!", noted Filoni) of the Nightsisters using lightsabers to fight a horde of Battle Droids, showing that there will indeed be more fallout from the split between Count Dooku and Asajj Ventress in Season 3. ...
The duo also talked about the new Jedi character, General Krell, who comes from the same species as Dexter Jettster. Silver described him as an "Unconventional Jedi with unconventional methods," who "Causes the clones to question things in different ways."

Finally for tonight, has a new Season 4 Preview clip entitled "Water War" from the Season 4 Premier Battle of Dac Trilogy.  The Scuba Troopers look pretty slick.
