James Arnold Taylor Talks End Of TCW With IGN

Posted By Eric on March 18, 2013

IGN has just posted an interview with Obi-Wan Kenobi voice actor James Arnold Taylor in which Taylor looks back on Star Wars: The Clone Wars' five seasons, discusses Star Wars fandom in general, and reacts to Ahsoka's departure from the Jedi Order in the Season 5 finale.

In this excerpt from the inteview, Taylor addresses Lucasfilm's use of the term "bonus content" and suggests a different way of describing the material:
Obviously, everyone was assuming we'd see a Season 6 in the traditional sense, right?

Taylor: Yeah, we recorded Season 6, basically, the whole season. So yeah, your assumption is, "Okay, it's going to run as a season." But now knowing all of the things that we did, I just really want to make sure that all those get out there. I think my biggest -- I don't even know the right word -- but maybe "issue", was calling it "bonus content." I think that could really make people feel like, you know, bonus content we think of as extras on a DVD or little snippets on the web. But we don't think of it as maybe a full episode or as a DVD release on its own or a season anywhere. So I think perhaps if they consider changing the wording of it to just "more Clone Wars" and "finishing the saga of The Clone Wars," that will appease fans maybe a little bit more than just the name that they came up with immediately.
