Here are the major reveals and other important bits from yesterday's The Clone Wars Season Four Preview panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
Shark attack. During the battle on Dac, we will meet a Shark-like Separatist leader named Rik Enson (spelling unconfirmed).
But wait, there's Sly Moore. Well, her species at least. Dave Filoni confirmed that we'll visit the eternally-nighttime planet of Umbara, where the native Umbarans are fighting on the side of the Confederacy. The Umbarans' vehicles will be very high-tech, according to Filoni, with holographic dashboards.
Trouble in the barracks. "Rex doesn't like what the clones are turning into," Filoni said.
Dexter Jettster would be proud. Joining the ranks of the on-screen Jedi Knights is the four-armed Besalisk warrior General Krell.
Lone Wolffe. Clone trooper Wolffe (from the Malevolence arc) is back. The loss of his squad-mates in Season 1 has changed him, Filoni explains. He calls Wolffe a "curmudgeon."
Revenge of the would-be Sith. Savage Opress, Asajj Ventress, and Nightsisters will return to the series. Opress will be shown continuing his mission to find Darth Maul. When the Nightsisters were announced for Season 4, four women dressed as Dathomir's Dark Side witches appeared on-stage.
Apparently, we do need that scum. Bounty hunters return! Cad Bane, Bossk, and Boba Fett will be back, along with another hunter who's making his TCW debut: Dengar!
Going commando. Filoni confirmed the appearance of clone commandos, but said it wouldn't be Delta Squad because he doesn't want to mess with that continuity.
More-tis. There will be more stories like the Mortis arc. (Please excuse the terrible pun.)
Forbidden love? Ahsoka and Lux may develop an on-screen romance.
Brainstorming the end. Filoni says he's written about eight different possible fates for Ahsoka, but George and the creative team still have yet to settle on one.
Return of the Hutt. Jabba will be back. No word on Stinky.
