Click here and head on over to Starwars.com where George Lucas and Dave Filoni talk The Clone Wars. See below for an excerpt:
"The Clone Wars gives you a great chance to explore characters outside of the Skywalker saga. Who are some of your favorites?
GL: I've always liked the Duros -- [the blue aliens from the cantina scene in A New Hope.] They're a derivation of Neimoidians -- Neimoidians are greener. Wrinklier.
DF: For me, it's the Jedi Council. I love the opportunity to explore these characters we saw so briefly, but who are in their time legendary -- Kit Fisto, Ki-Adi- Mundi, Luminara, Plo Koon ...
GL: If it were up to Dave, Plo Koon would be in every scene! It's great that Dave's got characters he really cares about, and who don't have to just be in battles or short scenes or in the background somewhere.
DF: That's what's really important. I care about these characters, and what happens to them, how they evolve in the film -- that's an adventure we're really excited to show in the movie."
