Coming this Friday on Cartoon Network, an all-new episode of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” focuses on everyone’s favorite droid, R2-D2.
R2-D2 is lost during a fierce space battle, and Anakin must find him before the Separatists discover the Jedi military secrets locked in his memory banks, in “Downfall of a Droid,”
Directed by Rob Coleman and written by George Krstic, “Downfall of a Droid” is the first episode to feature the beloved astromech droid — who Krstic, creator of Cartoon Network’s “Megas XLR,” says is his favorite “Star Wars” character.
“Artoo is very childlike and inquisitive — there’s no subterfuge to Artoo,” Krstic says. “He’s got loyalty and bravery and, while he doesn’t speak English, I think everyone understands what he’s saying. The wonderful sound design work and the incredible characterizations for Artoo have made it so that it doesn’t matter what language you speak, or where you’re from — you can relate to Artoo and what he’s about.”
“Downfall of a Droid” airs Friday, November 7 at 9 p.m. EST on Cartoon Network.
