10 GREAT FOOD SCENES IN STAR WARS REBELS AND STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS

Via Starwars.com:

SLIME POD, ANYONE? CHECK OUT SOME OF THE BEST FOOD-RELATED MOMENTS IN STAR WARS ANIMATION.
Meals have always been focal points in Star Wars storytelling. The first two films of each trilogy all include meals at home or with family members. Return of the Jedi includes even more “exotic” dining occasions, including the averted Ewok feast and the rancor and Sarlacc feedings (if we can consider them “food scenes”). Animated Star Wars is no less a culinary adventure. Both Star wars Rebels and The Clone Wars are rife with food scenes. Through the course we also discover the galaxy’s universal love of fruit and nunas. The following are our favorite food scenes…

Dark Disciple Is “Golden”

Lets cut right to the chase. Dark Disciple, written by veteran Star Wars author Christie Golden, is easily the most superlative story to come out of the new line of canon. While the other stories that have come before have captured the Star Wars universe well, Golden gives us a top-notch story that we all have been waiting for.

STAR WARS CLONE WARS: HOW AHSOKA TANA WON OVER FANS

Via Scifinow.co.uk:

Going from irritating kid to fan favourite, Anakin’s spunky padawan was a runaway success story. Voice actress Ashley Eckstein talks becoming a Star Wars institution, winning over fans, and continuing her story in Star Wars: Rebels…

Was it important to you to bring out strong female character qualities in Ahsoka?
I never really approached Ahsoka from the angle of ‘Oh, this is a strong female character, so I need to play her that way’, I was just so fortunate to be a small part of creating Ahsoka. The writing was superb, and [Dave Filoni and his crew] wrote such great episodes that I just had to bring life to the words that were on the page. The funny thing was that Ahsoka’s gender didn’t matter at the end of the day, because Dave didn’t write towards that, and I think that is the key to the success of writing a strong female character; just making her a strong character, male or female, and David and his crew did that. If you think about it, we never pointed out that she was a girl. I don’t think the term came up in the text, no one in the crew pointed out that she was a girl; she was just one of the gang, and I think the fans after a while looked past her gender.

Did you have much input to her characterisation?
I did have a lot of input with creating the character, her sound and attitude. Part of the reason I was cast was obviously the sound of my voice, but even just her attitude I brought to the auditions. Originally, Dave wanted Ahsoka to have an Icelandic accent. I didn’t do a good job in the original audition – in fact, I was terrible – I didn’t even think I would get a callback.

Fortunately, I did, and once again they asked to prepare in an Icelandic accent. I went to the audition, read the first line in an accent, and they stopped me and said, “Okay, that’s still not quite right, we want you to more in an Icelandic accent.” I was so confused, because I was doing it in an Icelandic accent! And so I said, “I’m sorry, I am, so I’m not quite sure what you want!” They said that they liked my attitude and body movement, so I was cast a lot more just for being myself than my actual audition.
