Entertainment Weekly did an interview with Dave Filoni that reveals a few fun facts about the season 3 finale. Dave comments on how a small The Big Lebowski tribute snuck it’s way in to the episode, as well as some serious insight into the character deaths we’ve seen this season. When talking about season 4, Dave says we should expect to jump right back into the war with battles larger than any we’ve seen so far. In fact Dave says we can expect to see battles on the scale of the Death Star II battle in Return of the Jedi. He also mentioned that there will be more three part episodes in future with an emphasis toward telling longer stories, but there will still be stand alone episodes scattered in (a few featuring R2 and 3PO). Dave also confirmed that we will be seeing Savage Opress return in season 4 at some point.
One comment that was rather insightful involved Anakin’s role as a teacher:
“The problem for him would be letting go of you. I think it’s because of that problem that Yoda thought it was important for Anakin to teach a student, and in that moment at the end when he steps back and thinks, “This girl can survive on her own,” Yoda sees that. His plan is actually working. Unfortunately, as we know, that’s not the way things end up, but it sets us up nicely for the future of the show.” -Dave Filoni
There is a lot of good information in the interview so be sure to check it out here.
