New Season 5 Image Revealed

By: Dominic Jones

Clone Wars Supervising Director Dave Filoni posted a brand new picture from season 5 on his Facebook page today. The image is of clone trooper Thorn. Here's what Filoni had to say about the trooper and the origin of his name: 

"On behalf of the Clone Wars crew, we would like to congratulate Marvel Studios and Joss Whedon on the incredible release of The Avengers. We’re also very proud of the team at ILM who made the effects and action scenes beyond spectacular. There are many fans of Marvel comics on the Clone Wars crew, and the biggest fan of all has to be episodic director Steward Lee. Knowing what a fan he is, I sketched up a special Clone Commander for an upcoming episode of Season 5. Clone Commander Thorn is obviously our homage to “Thor, the god of thunder.” Commander Thorn even carries a Z-6 blaster canon named “the Hammer.” Enjoy this sneak peak at a new clone from Season 5."

This is comes just days before the full season 5 trailer will be revealed at Disney's Star Wars Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. A preview of the trailer was released on May the 4th and can be seen here.
