TCW: "The Mandalore Plot" Round Up

Posted By Mike on February 2, 2010

Due to a rather fun ski trip this weekend, we're a little late on our episode follow-up posts for The Clone Wars. That being the case, let's just wrap it all up into one post. Better late than never, right?

Following the airing of the much anticipated episode of TCW, "The Mandalore Plot" (S2 Ep. 12), Starwars.com expanded to the full episode guide as well as added the video commentary, "The Art of Mandalore."

The full episode can also now be viewed at the main site along with the following accompanying videos:

Jon Favreau: Joining the Mandalorian Legacy
Jon Favreau: Pre Vizsla Speaks

Moving away from the videos and on to "print" features, Pete Vilmur talks Mando designing with lead designer Kilian Plunkett. Click here for the feature and see below for the intro.

"The helmet and armor worn by Boba and Jango Fett have long held a fascination for fans of the Star Wars saga, not only for the costume's cool mercenary aesthetic but for the persistent mystery surrounding it. Early on, Star Wars lore established the Fett armor as originating with the Mandalorians, an enigmatic culture that will be explored up close in Friday's episode of The Clone Wars, "The Mandalore Plot."

The Mando warrior look, which was devised by lead designer Kilian Plunkett for The Clone Wars, was of course informed by the Fett armor of the movie saga, but also from a Fett appearance made prior to Boba's 1980 debut in The Empire Strikes Back -- yup, the Boba Fett of 1978's "Star Wars Holiday Special" gets a nod in "The Mandalore Plot," thanks to the costume's translation into The Clone Wars universe.

We asked Plunkett a few questions about the Mandalorian look for Clone Wars, and how the costume both varies and compares to the Fett costumes we've come to know so well."

Last, but certainly not least, if you have yet to do so, make sure to check out the TFN review of "The Mandalore Plot" and keep your eyes peeled for the eventual ForceCast Roundtable of the episode.

UPDATE: We should also point out that the episode guide for "The Mandalore Plot" also includes Dave Filoni Q&A audio from the San Francisco premiere that also included "Landing at Point Rain." Scroll down to just above the "Trivia and Details" section. A fan recap from the San Francisco event can be found over at the Official Starwars.com Blog. (Thanks Thomas!)
