The New York Times is reporting that the Walking Carpet himself will be joining Star Wars: The Clone Wars for the two-part season 3 finale! The episodes, titled “Padawan Lost” and “Wookie Hunt” will feature Ahsoka Tano teaming up with the renowned wookie, Chewbacca. This could be the Classic Trilogy tie-in that Dave Filoni alluded to back at the Star Wars Celebration panel, The Clone Wars: Secrets Revealed, in which he replied to a youngling’s query about whether Han and Chewie would ever make an appearance in The Clone Wars.
The episodes are currently slated to air on April 1st, possibly back to back. A curious date to air such a momentous appearance, considering it is April Fools. I guess Clone Wars fans will just have to wait and see what other surprises might be in store for us in the coming weeks, as Star Wars: The Clone Wars rounds out it’s third season.
