Pernilla August To Voice Shmi In The Clone Wars
Starwars.com 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.
