10 Things You Didn't Know About Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Probably)

Star Wars: The Clone Wars comprises of four episodes that would have kicked off the first season. Their titles would have been “The New Padawan”, “Castle of Deception”, “Castle of Doom”, and “Castle of Salvation”.

It was shipped to some theatres under the pseudonym “Joan of Arc”.

Overzealously, the DVD release date was set before the movie’s theatrical debut.

It was the first Star Wars movie to not release in the month of May, feature a score composed by John Williams, be distributed by 20th Century Fox, an introductory text-scroll, nor open at number one in the box office.

Likewise, the film was the first since Return of the Jedi to feature an in-cockpit view of the jump to hyperspace.

Christopher Lee, Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Daniels, and Matthew Wood were the only actors from any of the live action Star Wars movies to reprise their roles.

Christopher Lee actually joined the project very late on, and so recorded his lines over Corey Burton's recordings.

James Arnold Taylor based the voice of the Twilight's medical droid on Jeff Goldblum.

Ashley Eckstein originally auditioned for the role of Padmé Amidala, only to be told she sounded too young for the role. Though this made her perfect for the voice of Ahsoka Tano.

And, last but not least...

When Matt Lanter auditioned, he was instructed to read the part of “Deak Starkiller” - a cross between Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. The role was actually for Anakin, something he only realised afterwards.
