Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 4 Premier Preview: Water War (4.01) & Gungan Attack (4.02)


After a long summer hiatus, Star Wars: The Clone Wars is back and its back big baby! 

Dave Filoni and TCW team is pulling out the Original Trilogy big guns and bringing Ackbar to the small screen in the latest of a series of film character guest stars.

I can't wait to see the two premier episodes this weekend.  While I know the general plot, I have avoided detailed spoilers so that I can be wowed.  

Synopsis for Episode 4.01: Water War

"When destiny calls, the chosen have no choice."

When the king of Mon Cala is assassinated, talks break down between the Mon Calamari people and the Quarren, co-inhabitants of the aquatic world. To stop a civil war, the Republic sends Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker, but unbeknownst to them, the Quarren are already being backed by the Separatists. Now the Jedi must protect Mon Cala's new leader, the young Prince Lee-Char, from the attack.
Am I the only one that has a hard time with Quarren with soft moving facial tentacles?  To many hours playing with the action figures I guess. 

Synopsis for Episode 4.02: Gungan Attack

"Only through fire is a strong sword forged."

Anakin Skywalker and the rest of his Jedi team have been overrun by the Separatist surprise attacks led by Riff Tamson while Prince Lee-Char and Ahsoka must evade capture on their own. Unable to summon more Republic aid, Yoda calls upon the help of the powerful and amphibious Gungan Grand Army, but whether they will be enough to stop the Separatist siege is uncertain. An incensed Tamson doubles his efforts in tracking down Prince Lee-Char, unleashing the reinforcements given to him by Count Dooku in an assault that churns the oceans. 
Wait since when are the Gungan's a powerful military force?  That scraping sound you here is Mandalorian fanboys and girls spinning in their armor.  

Look for a Battle Mediation Review of these episodes later this weekend on Lightsaber Rattling.
