Today’s Big Fat Clone Wars Update

No news yet on where we’ll see Season Six, but we need to keep up the pressure! Today there’s a report that the awaited 1313 video game has been put in carbonite because of that lame “putting all resources on Episode VII” excuse.

But there’s a lot about the season finale.

First, the big news that Tim Curry has been chosen to play Palpatine/Sidious! Curry’s best known role is probably Dr. Frank N. Furter from The Rocky Horror Picture Show (“I’m just a sweet transSithual from Transylvani-aaa”) but he’s appeared in a number of t.v. shows and movies, and has a great deal of voice acting experience. Read Big Shiny Robot’s story and catch an exclusive clip here.

There are interviews and clips galore. Along with Big Shiny Robot’s clip with Curry as Palpatine, there’s a clip with Blastr’s interview with Dave Filoni, there’s an interview with Ashley Eckstein looking back at Ahsoka’s evolution over the years (let’s hope it’s not an exit interview), and other preview clips:

Tomorrow (3/1), Matt Lanter is doing a Twitter chat at 1 p.m. EST/10 a.m. PST with Christian Blauvelt of Follow along and send questions with the hashtag #CloneWarsChat.

Plus, I’ll live tweet the episode beginning at 9:30 a.m. PST. Be sure and find @lazypadawan on Twitter!

    I adore Tim Curry with all my heart.


    I dunno, his voice is a little too deep for Palpy. Oh well…he’s still a good actor. He just…doesn’t sound like Palpy.

    I was wondering what happened to that “1313” video game they were hyping about. I have to smile to myself that Disney has cancelled a game that certain haters were looking forward to because it would be a much darker “Star Wars” (to add insult to injury the snooty said that “1313” was an example of the workers at Lucasfilm forming their own “rebellion”-HA!).

    That is cool Tim Curry will be Palpy.
