Why is the Clone Wars Season 2 still in production?
When we last left off on the Clone War season two finale, we got to see the first female clone trooper, Leia Organa.
But it wasn’t until the Season 3 premiere that we saw the female clone troopers first appear in-universe.
When we caught up with the creators of the Clone Wagon on the set of the new season, they explained why.
“When you think about the Clone wars, the first season, we didn’t do a lot of story-driven content,” executive producer David Gerrold said.
“And so we wanted to create some space in the world that was really open for the character to come in and be a part of the story.
So in the third season, [Clone Commander] Gantu (Bart Dauterive) had to figure out how to work with her new friend, Yoda (Andy Serkis).”
The Clone Wars is such a complex universe that I feel like the more space we put into the characters, the more interesting it will be for the audience,” executive producers Dave Filoni and Gary Whitta added. “
So we thought, well, maybe there’s a way to get in there and have a little fun with Yoda.”
“The Clone Wars is such a complex universe that I feel like the more space we put into the characters, the more interesting it will be for the audience,” executive producers Dave Filoni and Gary Whitta added.
“We wanted to make sure that we didn, in fact, give characters that are so young that we don’t have to have them go through this.
We didn’t want them to go through these kinds of things.”
So that’s why we’ve got Leia, who was the first clone trooper to be introduced in the Clone Forces universe.
We also got to watch her get her first battle experience with a Jedi Knight.
“She was very much a member of the crew,” Gerroll said of Leia.
“You know, they’ve been there before, and they’ve had experience in these situations before.
So, she really came into her own in her first fight.
And I think, again, she’s one of the few people that you get to see, to be able to do this.
It’s a really interesting moment for her.”
Gerrold and Whitta are clearly thrilled with how the new Clone Wars season ended, especially with its female-centric characters.
“The fact that it’s a female clone soldier is a great, great, awesome thing,” Gerroy said.
It also gives us an opportunity to see more of the Jedi Knights.
“I think it’s just a really good way to end the Clone Warriors, because they’re very, very well-rounded, you know, both male and female,” Whitta said.
So they have to be ready for whatever they face.
“That’s the first time I’ve seen the female Jedi Knights and the first chance for them to show off their skills,” Gerrosl said.
You know, there’s an element of excitement there, which is exciting, I think.
“In fact, we had to make Leia a clone trooper because she wasn’t ready for the training.
And that’s where we had her go to, you see.
We just couldn’t get her to be a clone.
So that just gives us a chance to introduce these characters that we know are really special, and also really powerful and awesome.”
There are a lot more female clones in the new series than we’ve seen in the old Clone Wars.
That’s not to say there aren’t any female characters on-screen, but there are only a handful of them.
“All of the characters are different in the different Clone Wars seasons,” Gerrol explained.
So there are a few female clone soldiers in this season, but only a few. “
Clone Trooper Commander” is actually a female character named C-3PO.
So there are a few female clone soldiers in this season, but only a few.
“If we’re not doing any female clones, we are doing a very, really cool female character in our next season, which will be in the season four.
But if we are going to do any, we want to do it the right way,” Gerrod said.
That includes not doing female clone units, as there are no female troopers in the current season.
“It’s a bit like, ‘Wait, we’re going to make female clones and we’re just going to give them a lot less armor,’ ” Gerrol explained.
We don’t want to just put them in their armor, so they can’t fight in the regular Clone Wars because it would ruin their armor.
“There are so many things you could do in the show that would make it so they wouldn’t be able fight in regular Clone Wargames, so we decided not to do that,” Gerroll said.
But there’s still room for a female Clone trooper in the future.
“At the moment, we’ve only got three female clone troops on-set,” Gerrot said. I
