The Clone Wars Episode #11 Preview

Posted By Mike on December 31, 2008

The preview video for "Dooku Captured", episode #11 of The Clone Wars, has been posted over at the main site.

Synopsis from Starwars.com:

"During their own attempt to kidnap Count Dooku, Anakin and Obi-Wan discover that the Sith Lord has already been captured by pirates."

UPDATE: From Lucasfilm:

"STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS Returns Wth a Closer Look at the Malevolent Count Dooku"

"STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS gives audiences a different look at Separatist leader Count Dooku, and also introduces a new set of villains in ?Dooku Captured,? an all-new episode of the hit animated series directed by Jesse Yeh, premiering at 9 p.m. ET/PT Friday, Jan. 2, on Cartoon Network.

The episode finds Anakin and Obi-Wan attempting to capture Dooku, only to discover the Sith Lord has already been kidnapped by intergalactic pirates.

Yeh says the episode reveals more insight into Count Dooku?s descent from Jedi Knight to his lofty place within the ranks of those wielding the dark side of the Force.

?I have always been interested in the drama behind this particular character,? Yeh explains. ?He thinks realistically, and has a solid mind. The actions he takes are always so direct and straight forward.

?I sense that deep down, Dooku holds a sort of emotional connection with the Jedi,? Yeh says. ?I?ve always been interested in the drama behind him. Dooku thinks realistically, he has a solid mind, and the actions he takes are very direct and straightforward.

?In a way, he?s almost pathetic. His mind is constantly being twisted by his pride, which is what originally led him to the dark side. Because of his pride, he doesn?t realize he has turned into exactly the sort of monster that he once fought against. From his perspective, he is not doing anything different from what he did when he was still a Jedi. He?s just trying to save the universe ? but this time from what he sees as a corrupt Republic. In the end, he?s become just another expendable pawn of the true evil.?

Yeh said Dooku?s position as a prisoner in ?Dooku Captured? provided a dramatic and animation challenge. ?Dooku is no longer in control of the situation, do we had to spend some time trying to figure out how to animate this ?tamed? Dooku.?

In addition to working with Dooku, Yeh said it was particularly exciting directing an episode that introduces new characters.

?The pirates have a gangster-like society. The fact that they were actually capable of capturing the legendary Dooku took me by surprise,? Yeh says. ?Since the pirate chief is a new character, there were really no limitations on how to bring him to the screen. As a director, I got to determine who this new character would be ? how to bring out the combative and greedy nature of this particular species, and put those characteristics onto the very surface of his performance.?'

Picture Caption: "Count Dooku is greeted by Pukk, a not-so-friendly Kowakian monkey-lizard, in ?Dooku Captured,? an all-new episode of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS premiering at 9 p.m. ET/PT Friday, Jan. 2, on Cartoon Network."
