We’re back with another episode of our Canon Catch-up series, looking at episode 15 from season 1 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, “Trespass.” And there are a few ties straight back to the Original Trilogy in this episode.
2. Hoth-inspired outfits. Obi-Wan and Anakin wear coats, hats, and goggles that very much evoke the kind of gear Han and Luke wore at Echo Base in The Empire Strikes Back.
3. Familiar dialogue. There’s a “Here they come” which, all things considered, is a pretty common phrase. But a little less common is Anakin’s response to Senator Riyo Chuchi’s negotiating skills: “Most impressive.” I see what you did there, Clone Wars peeps.
4. Ralph McQuarrie snowtrooper code. The clone snowtroopers look a little bit like their later counterparts from Empire. But the code on the back of a trooper’s helmet in the McQuarrie concept art shows up in part on the back of Captain Rex’s helmet in this episode. (And was on the chest plates of the snowtroopers in The Force Awakens, too!)
