Liberty on Ryloth

The Clone WarsThe final push to free Ryloth comes from a campaign against the capital city by Jedi General Mace Windu. With his clone troopers depleted by battle, he must seek out the help of resistance leader Cham Syndulla. However, political tensions between Syndulla and Republic Senator Orn Free Taa threaten to sabotage Windu’s efforts. But a slash-and-burn campaign by the retreating Separatist army may prove to be the catalyst that brings the opposing forces together.

LogBook entry by Philip R. Frey

Notes:This episode concludes the “Ryloth Trilogy”. It is production number 19.

Jedi Fortune Cookie: “Compromise is a virtue to be cultivated, not a weakness to be despised.”

Although Separatist leader Wat Tambor is captured in this episode, he must eventually be freed, as he meets his fate alongside other Separatist leaders in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.

Dave Filoni, supervising director of The Clone Wars has stated that although George Lucas decided that Twi’leks should have French accents and the resitance forces seen in this episode were meant to be reminiscent of the French resistance during World War II, the confluence of these two ideas was unintentional.
