New German Episode Descriptions Surface For The Clone Wars Bonus Content
Posted by Eric on January 29, 2014 at 04:19 PM CST |
Christoph Wolf from StarWars-Union.de has sent us translations of the descriptions for two more episodes from The Clone Wars' canceled sixth season that will be airing in Germany. Here they are (beware spoilers):
Destiny

Guided by the Force, Yoda travels to the heart of the galaxy. There, on the planet where he finds the origin of the Force, he must face difficult trials. Only upon passing them will the Sages deem him worthy of learning the deepest mysteries of the Force....

Sacrifice

On Moriband, the homeworld of the Sith, the time has come for Yoda to pass his final test. Only then will he learn the best-kept secret of his order, but first a most powerful enemy awaits....
These episodes are clearly part of the Yoda story arc that was teased at Star Wars Weekends 2013. It's interesting that the Sith homeworld, which the EU calls Korriban, is here referred to as Moriband. It could be a translation error, but if it isn't, the discrepancy is sure to annoy some EU fans. That said, Moriband sounds like "moribund," which is etymologically appropriate, so you never know.

As of right now, we know of thirteen episodes that comprise The Clone Wars bonus content. There are the eight episodes we wrote about earlier this month, three more available at Jedi-Bibliothek (including "Voices," part one of the Yoda arc), and these latest two.

Super RTL's original press release announcing that it would broadcast new episodes of The Clone Wars is available here. Airdates for all of these episodes are available from a third-party TV guide whose accuracy Super RTL has confirmed.

UPDATE: Christoph from StarWars-Union.de has confirmed to us by email that "Moriband" is not a typo:
We got in touch with Super RTL to specifically ask them about the Moriband thing, and here's what their spokesman said.

"We have kept to the text presets given to us by Disney / Lucasfilm. To be on the safe side, we just took a second look at the original English text, and there it definitely says 'Moriband'."
