    I wonder if the walking carpet himself will appear in this episode, or are they saving him for "Wookie Hunt"?[face_thinking]

    Hm. Insider and Sky TV say the planet is Iwasskah, but [link=http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/tv_shows/starwars/?episodeID=8a250ab02c325aa5012c51f8a0440271]Cartoon Network[/link] says it's Trandosha. Perhaps it was originally intended to be Trandosha, but changed to Iwasskah at some point? Or vice versa?

    The first half of the episode will be on Trandosha. Then after a commercial break, everyone will be calling it Iwasshah. In the episode commentary, Dave will explain how they were going to use the EU name for the Trandoshan homeworld, but halfway through production George wasn't satisfied and decided to change it. They couldn't afford to reshoot it since they had overshot their budget trying to make exact replicas of OT character models.

    Possibly it's a moon of Trandosha, but why couldn't they use the previous TCW established moon of the planet. :oops:

    http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Akoshissss

    So if this Iwasshah is a moon, that makes two TCW moons for Trandosha. If not, it could always be a separate body in the Kashyyyk system.

    It's probably best if it turns out to be a Trandoshan-controlled world in a different system. That'd mitigate any continuity issues, baring someone saying something like "This is the Trandoshan homeworld! And it is definitely not in the same system as Kashyyyk! Also Yarael Poof is still alive!"

    Well, so long as one of the character models is a [link=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Yuvernian]Yuvernian[/link], I'm totally down with that. :p

    Nevermind about my moon discussion, since I just read what Insider said in Wookieepedia. :p But that would make somewhat sense if it is a moon of Trandosha.

    I really hope they don't make this planet "the official homeworld of the Trandoshans," because that would mess up everything badly. Off system colony world does sound better.

    I'm looking forward to the battle with Plo Koon, Anakin, Wolffe and Rex. The rest is meh to me right now.

    Though Ahsoka probably fails because she gets captured so I'm cool with that.

    Same here about looking forward to the battle, SpecialOpsUnit, but as much as I like Wolffe, I'm a tad apprehensive *gulp*.
    As for the rest - my son loves Ahsoka so I'm fine with A-centric episodes. There's nothing better than watching the show together.

    Could someone please PM me and let me know what's up with the "Early UK Premiere"? How early is early? Is there a link? Sorry, I am very anti-spoiler and already have seen wayyy too much by accident in this thread to read more posts or come back. So please PM me someone if you don't mind. [face_praying]

    The official episode guides are both up on SW.com, just a heads up. To add to the name debate, they spelt it 'Wasskah' on the website:oops:.

    I agree with GG though, it's kind of a shame that Felucia is constantly being revisited.

    I also like some of the names for the Trandoshans. And by like, I mean stupid. Jinx? Really? Like the Pokemon[face_laugh] or O-Mer (like Homer Simpson? :oops: So he'll be the one constantly falling over, or the fat one[face_laugh]) ah never has the d'oh! smilie been more appropriate;)

    One other thing about the episodes, it says none other than Dave Filoni directed both these episodes. I have high hopes for this finale.

    I said it would be Trandosha so maybe i fooled even CN-folk[face_laugh] So now it's only Wasskah... ummm... ok.... but trandoshan moon- it was so close to Trandosha;) - and GG- didn't you claim it's Kashyyyk?[face_whistling]

    also that moon is not established by TCW but EU inspired by it- and Trandosha can have two moons without probs- Chewie being there also supports previous EU so trandosha is near Kashyyyk....

    I wonder if Admiral Coburn is also in this since he was with Plo in Citadel Rescue- his animation model is wasted if they won't use him again.....

    What's so important on Felucia? EU tells Commerce Guilds have precence there but are those "neutral" like TF or openly seppies? But last time entire sector felt to seppies (if bh:s was prequel as i think) and now is it CIS attacking there again? wow... they really need sillum....

    Weren't Bounty Hunters and Holocron Heist back-to-back in timeline, or was it just a clever idea from timeline-folk here?
    If it wasn't, then seppies attacked Felucia during Bounty Hunters and captured it in Holocron Heist. Now the Republic is trying to win it back. We don't yet know Commerce Guild's status in the Republic, but it makes sense that the headquarter planet of galaxy-wide corporation is battled constantly.
    We have to give credit to Hondo, as his business-sense had him in the correct place (getting soon-rare sillum) at the correct time (just before it could get rare).

    Only a clever idea- but it works:p med station destryed first then entire planet taken for CIS.....

    And it was Grievous taking Felucia and entire sector so he doesn't always loose:p
    actually Intrigue Flashback shows Felucia battle (ok means nothing necessarily) so perhaps there is intentional connection- Grievous had many victories in a row making him to consider huge kamino attack- my timeline places Rookies (Where everyone is looking for GG) after Geonosis saga that also mentions GG being active at the time plus in Intrigue it's said he is elusive and jedi don't know where he is..... - so it's all just 'clever' fanspeculation for now..... my timeline for GG says Bounty hunters (GG hates medical stations doesn't he?), Holocron arc (Gains great victory), Geonosis-arc(is active elsewhere while Geonosis is battlefield), Rookies(is disappeared and plans Kamino assault in secret- everyone looks for him), Intrigue (Reappears but fails and escapes) and Arc troopers(Returns to Kamino-plan later on)

    but Felucia should now be seppie world anyway... if it's not- who took it back to Republic after Holocron Heist? :confused: Confusing......


    Anyway maybe we finally see Shu Mai if it's Commerce guild's world:p - my goodness- she must not get captured or they really need prison break ASAP or they run out of seppies[face_laugh] .... ok they need it anyway ....

    Actually the more I hear about this episode the more I absolutely love the sound of it.

    A bunch of twisted, sadistic Trandoshan hunters sitting around the table, bored of hunting animals, wondering how they could make the next hunt interesting.
    "Ya know what would be interessssssting? A Jedi."*all nod in approval*
    So they go out and capture a bunch of Padawans (don't want to make it too difficult) to use as the prey of their game.
    That's just the kind of messed-up storytelling we need in this show. Cannot WAIT!

    just a reminder that although there is no doubt the episode will be all over the Internet within the next 24 hours, you are not to post links or even discuss how to download it.
