Preview TCW: "Death Trap"

Daniel Logan returns to the GFFA as we head into the home stretch of Season 2 of The Clone Wars...

Boba Fett Returns in an All-New Episode of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS
This Friday at 9:00pm on Cartoon Network!

Since his iconic introduction in The Empire Strikes Back thirty years ago, bounty hunter Boba Fett has been a figure of mystery and intrigue ? a merciless mercenary whose battered battle armor hid any traces of humanity remaining in his hardened heart. A man of few words ? he had only five lines and a death scream in the original trilogy ? he was nonetheless a force to be reckoned with, unafraid to challenge even a Dark Lord of the Sith. But he wasn?t always a hunter with a ruthless reputation; he was once a boy, alone in the galaxy and forced to fend for himself after the death of his father. These origins were glimpsed briefly in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones?but now, Boba?s BACK ? a young man taking the dangerous first steps on his journey from innocent to icon in ?Death Trap,? the beginning of the thrilling three-part season finale of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, airing at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT Friday, April 23 on Cartoon Network.

Reprising his role from Attack of the Clones, Daniel Logan is back to voice Boba in The Clone Wars ? older, wiser and ready to take on the iconic character?s crucial turning point.

?This is a key time for Boba,? says Logan. ?When we saw him in Episode II, he was just a kid. But he watched his dad get killed by Mace Windu, and now he wants revenge against the Jedi. He?s bitter and angry. A lot?s changed for Boba, even though not much time?s passed for him. I rewatched Attack of the Clones a few times to see how my voice sounded back then ? I?m older and it?s changed a little, you know? I wanted to stay true to that original sound. But, he?s darker and more serious now ? and he definitely has an edge.?

An edge ? and a mission. Determined to exact revenge upon the Jedi, Boba poses as a clone cadet to sneak aboard a Jedi Cruiser. It?s easy enough for him to blend in; he is, after all, created from the same genetic blueprint as the rest of the clones ? that of bounty hunter Jango Fett. But though he may have DNA identical to the Republic heroes?, he nonetheless sees himself as a unique individual ? with no affection for his genetic brethren.

?He?s with the clones, but he?s not one of them,? says Logan. ?He?s special; that?s how he sees it. And now he?s alone. He had a relationship with Jango, like a father and son. None of the other clones had that connection; they?re just soldiers, and now they?re standing in his way. And that?s one of things that makes Boba so cool, as a kid and as a bounty hunter ? nothing stands in his way.?

As for Logan himself, nothing would stand in his way when faced with the opportunity to revisit the role of the would-be bounty hunter. But though he was thrilled to be providing the voice of Boba for The Clone Wars, he had to curb his enthusiasm and hold his tongue ? at least until the character?s return was officially announced.

?It was so hard keeping quiet,? says Logan. ?We didn?t want to ruin the surprise that Boba was coming back, so I couldn?t say anything! It?s been a year [since the initial voice recording session], and people would ask me if I was going to appear in The Clone Wars ? if Boba was coming back. And I couldn?t say anything! I was so excited, and I wanted to shout it, you know? But I had to be quiet. Now that I can finally talk about it, I?m bursting. I saw the finished episodes a few weeks ago, and it just looks so cool ? worth the wait! Fans are going to be excited to see how the character develops ? but we don?t give too much away. Boba?s a mystery; that?s what?s cool about him.?
