Although the idea of Mandalorian tradition appears comparatively new, “Star Wars” creator George Lucas was creating it years earlier than “The Clone Wars.” The sequence introduced the proper alternative to introduce the warrior race, a lot to the delight of the “Clone Wars” crew.
Introducing Mandalore was excessive on the precedence listing for Filoni, then supervising director for the sequence. “Lots of people on the crew wished to see the Mandalorians,” Filoni informed StarWars.com again in 2010. The thrill even reached Favreau at Skywalker Ranch, who managed to speak himself into an element on “The Clone Wars.” Favreau recalled:
“I had talked about that I might like to do a voice, and that I might performed voices earlier than — and the concept for me to play a Mandalorian got here up. I wasn’t holding out for a cool character, however I feel the Mandalorians are in all probability those that the die-hards are going to be essentially the most inquisitive about.”
Favreau was later forged as Pre Vizsla, the descendant of Tarre Vizsla, the primary Mandalorian Jedi and inheritor to the Darksaber. The Darksaber was really a component added late within the sport, after Favreau had recorded the episode with completely different dialogue. Initially his character fought Obi-Wan Kenobi utilizing a vibroblade. It’s, as its identify suggests, principally a sword that will get sizzling when it vibrates — in all probability not one of the best weapon to make use of towards a Jedi. “George did not just like the logic of vibroblade having the ability to parry a lightsaber,” Favreau recalled. And thus, the Darksaber was born.
