MTV Geek has revealed a new episode 3.16 “Altar of Mortis” clip. Link



TV Guide has now listed “Ghosts of Mortis” to air on Feb. 11th. Between that and the Cartoon Network listing, I’d say that’s pretty concrete. Link



UPDATE: The Clone Wars episode 3.16 “Altar of Mortis” Episode Guide Preview now up at Link


According to Cartoon Network’s Schedule, episode 3.17 “Ghosts of Mortis” will indeed air on February 11th. We sent off an email to TV Guide about their listing; we’ll report if they respond.


It seems confusion still exists, because according to an Entertainment Weekly exclusive, Qui-Gon is again supposed to appear on the 11th, presumably during “Ghosts of Mortis”. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see…


Just to update the episode schedule, episode 3.16 “Altar of Mortis” will air this Friday, Feb 4th. There was confusion due to the fact that Star Wars Insider listed an incorrect air date of February 11th.

Pernilla August To Voice Shmi In The Clone Wars has released an interview with Dave Filoni, who has announced that Pernilla August will reprise her role as Shmi Skywalker in The Cone Wars.

“This is a very important chapter in Anakin’s development,” says Dave Filoni, supervising director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. “The prophecy of the Chosen One was touched on in the films, but never like this. We’re going to look at what it means for Anakin and the galaxy. We wanted to give it the proper connection to the larger saga. I am very grateful to have Liam Neeson and Pernilla August reprising their roles from the live-action films. They are each so important to Anakin’s journey, and to have them on our series has been incredible.”

And Big Shiny Robot reports that Lucasfilm is not releasing any pictures of Shmi until after the episode (presumably “Overlords”) airs.

Episode 3.16: “Altar of Mortis”

As the Jedi attempt to escape Mortis, Ahsoka is taken captive as a lure to seduce Anakin Skywalker to join the dark side. As Anakin battles against dark forces, the Father attempts to stop a confrontation between his children, which threatens to unbalance the Force completely.

Episode 3.17: “Ghosts of Mortis”

Anakin Skywalker must choose between the light and dark side of the Force as he gains a disturbing insight into his own future. Meanwhile, Obi-Wan and Ahsoka prepare for a decisive confrontation in their effort to unravel the mysteries of the planet. Can they ever escape Mortis?
