At the panel is surprising director for the show Dave Filoni and head writer Matt Michnovetz with Pablo Hidalgo moderating it. The news we get is the following:
-The new first episode Season 5 will be titled "Revival". It will debut in August on the big-screen at Celebration 6. A clip from the episode was shown at the panel, featuring Droids looking around and then Maul & Savage taking them out. Maul may get new legs.
-We'll find out about how well Obi-Wan really knows Anakin & Padme.
-We will finally see Sidious in the flesh. Most of Ian Abercrombie's work was done in Season 5 before he passed away.
-Matt Michnovetz, the writer of the Umbara arc in season 4, is also a key writer on Star Wars: 1313.
-Talk about several important characters this season, including Ahsoka, Anakin, Obi-Wan, Death Watch & Bo-Katan.
-Bo-Katan will do more in Season 5 than Boba Fett ever did, Filoni says. Daniel Logan stands up from the audience at that comment.
- No Boba Fett for Season 5.
-A preview clip from Mandalore is shown. Two guards go to greet a ship. A mysterious robed guy force-chokes them. Obi-Wan fighting Death Watch in crazy jetpack action.
-Tons of deaths this season.
-There will be ONE Republic Commando this season, and he will do a lot. More Republic Commando stuff in development.
-None of Riff Tamson's species in Season 5, but they will be back.
-More of the Shock Troopers role.
-Ahsoka will have a difficult year on some ways.
-Tarkin's appearance on the show represents something that's coming.
IGN has a clip featuring Obi-Wan and the Death Watch. EW has one focusong on Darth Maul. Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 5 arrives on Cartoon Network in the fall of 2012.
