A look at the new “Clone Wars” season premiering tonight, courtesy of Lucasfilm
Last month, I had the privilege and pleasure of hosting a special sneak preview event presented by Lucasfilm & Gordon and the Whale for the new three-episode story arc of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars, premiering tonight on Cartoon Network at 8:30/7:30 central. Being a STAR WARS fan since my speech sounded more Wookie than words, I felt like I had been moved from Padawan to Jedi status.
With an all new story by young Katie Lucas- 23-year-old daughter of George - beginning with "Nightsisters," we get to explore the mysterious Zabrak race as Asajj Ventress seeks her own apprentice to serve as a double-agent in order to take her revenge on her former master, Count Dooku. If Zabrak sounds familiar to you, that's because the baddest Sith this side of Naboo was one (and, dare I say it, the best thing the new trilogy gave us). And if you thought Darth Maul was a double-edged lightsaber-wielding, tattooed dude with attitude, wait till you get a load of Savage Opress.

At the farthest reaches of a galaxy far, far away, sometimes evil must fight evil…
Peace and justice are threatened by a deadly new villain forged by the darkest sorcery. Trained by wielders of a magic as mystical and powerful as the Force itself, this menacing new emissary of evil - Savage Opress - is more than a match for even the combined forces of the Jedi and the Sith. With significant connections to Episode I's Darth Maul, this new monster has a will of his own - and he is more powerful than even his creators had imagined.
