Episode Information!

"Rising Maleovence,' is the sixth episode of The Clone Wars in chronological order, but was aired as the second episode of the first season. For more information on it, check out its episode guide here!

Official Synopsis!
An attack by a devastating new Separatist weapon -- the powerful starship Malevolence -- leaves Jedi Master Plo Koon and his clone troopers struggling to survive until Anakin and Ahsoka can find them.
  • In a nod to Executive Director Dave Filoni's fondness for wolves, the clones under the command of Commander Wolffe all have stylized wolf muzzles on their helmet.
  • The hatchways to the escape pods all feature the Republic cog symbol.
  • The dialogue between the clones Sinker and Booster when they're trying to fix the escape pod's electrical system was lifted directly from the dialogue between Han Solo and Chewbacca in The Empire Strikes Back trying to fix the Millennium Falcon.
  • The second escape pod in the episode was numbered 1977 as a nod to the release year for A New Hope.
  • Likewise, the firing channel shot of the ion weapon was designed with the Death Star firing sequence in the same film.
Next time on The Clone Wars!

The next episode in the chronological viewing order is Season 1's episode two, " Shadow of Malevolence"!

The suspense in this one was a bit scary for my kids. They decided it was ok though, because "The Jedi always win!" I liked meeting Ahsoka Thano. Although what's the deal with her skimpy outfit?
