Dave Filoni Talks "Yoda Arc" with


By: Dominic Jones

Lucasfilm’s senior content writer Dan Brooks posted a portion of his interview with Star Wars: The Clone Wars Supervising Director Dave Filoni which was cut from the original postings of the interview because he felt it contained too many elements that were spoilers for the (at the time) unaired Yoda Arc.  Now that the Yoda Arc and the rest of Season 6 is available on Netflix, this portion of the interview is fair game! 

In the interview Filoni discusses the differences between Yoda in the Prequels and Yoda in the Originals,
"What you get out of this story arc is that you understand, finally, that Yoda in the Clone Wars period is not at all the same person that he is in The Empire Strikes Back. People, I think, have always wondered, “Why [in The Clone Wars] isn’t he like he was in Empire? He’s not as odd, and he’s not as quizzical. Why is he so much more serious in the Clone War and where’s the fun little Yoda who was wise?” Well, he’s not there yet, you see. The story that we tell goes a very long way toward explaining who Yoda is prior to the Clone War and who he becomes after the Clone War."
