Clone Wars Clip: Landing At Point Rain Is Star Wars Omaha Beach
New episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars are back on television this Wednesday at 8:00pm with the debut of “The Landing at Point Rain” on Cartoon Network. Unless Lucas finally gets his ass in gear on that long-promised but little delivered live-action Star Wars TV show, or unless those wild rumors about a new trilogy turn out to be true, this is pretty much your only way to get a Star Wars fix. Eat it up.
“The Landing at Point Rain” sounds as if it’s more than just a standard Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode. Director Brian Kalin O’Connell says of it, “George [Lucas] wanted ‘Landing at Point Rain’ to be as intense as any live-action movie about the assault on Omaha Beach”
Below we have a clip from “The Landing at Point Rain”. Here’s a taste of what you’re in for after the jump.
In Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ “Landing at Point Rain”, Anakin, Ahsoka and Ki-Adi-Mundi lead a landing party to destroy a droid factory that Poggle the Lesser has rebuilt on Geonosis, but things go terribly awry when Separatist gunners shoot down the Republic ships. Despite heavy losses, Anakin and Ki-Adi-Mundi must rendezvous in time to destroy the enemy factory before it can begin production.
