Click here for an interview with The Clone Wars supervising director Dave Filoni at Genre Online as we anxiously await the series premiere next Friday. Lets face it, one of the more polarizing aspects of TCW film was the slap-stick antics of the Battle Droids. See the excert below for Filoni's thoughts on the subject:
"The battle droids are an interesting one. My take on the battle droids personally is the standard battle droid was built at a time before the war and they were built to protect freighter convoys and that lends into their goofiness. You know they?re not as serious as the world that is coming. The world of the Empire and I think as we move forward in the war you start to see the droids change. Not necessarily the ?Roger, Roger? droids, but the super battle droids are already more menacing than the regular battle droids and the destroyer droids are more menacing than the super battle droids and we have other new types of droids, more diabolical droids. It?s kind of as the war goes on, the serious nature of the universe is being created by all these evil forces. It?s a progressive thing and where we are at now is kind of like the highflying times of adventure in the Clone Wars where maybe it will end in a month or two."
