STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS: "SENATE SPY"

Lucasfilm has released a preview clip from "Senate Spy," Friday's new episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network.

For the video interview, CLICK HERE.

Here's how the episode is described:

"Tasked by the Jedi Council to rekindle an old flame in order to solicit crucial -- and dangerous -- information from a suspected traitor, Senator Padme Amidala finds herself torn between love and duty.

"Against Anakin's vehement wishes, Padme is recruited to investigate a fellow Senator -- and former love interest ­ suspected of conspiring with the nefarious Banking Clan. A conflict as divisive as the Clone Wars has a way of turning hearts and minds, and she finds that even old friends may have new agendas. Meanwhile, Anakin must watch powerlessly from the shadows as his lady love willingly and deliberately courts the affections of another man."

Catherine Taber, the voice of Padme Amidala, says the relationship between her character and Anakin is fun to watch.

"We try to incorporate some of the things that are inherent to all deep love relationships ­ like jealousy and the little struggles for power, as well as those inside jokes that can only really exist between two people who know and trust one another," Taber said. "I want people to feel that when Anakin is in the mix, it is the only time when Padme loses focus. In fact, I think it makes her uncomfortable, and she feels she has to prove -- to herself -- that her top priority is the Republic. I personally believe that, underneath it all, her primary allegiance would be to Anakin -- but I donšt think shešd ever admit it."

"Senate Spy" is a depature for The Clone Wars, exploring a different side of the conflict. It focuses on the delicate political machinations as they play out behind the scenes of the swashbuckling space opera.

"Dave (Filoni) and the team have said from the beginning that they wanted to show the Star Wars Saga from different perspectives, and this episode is a great example of that," Taber said. "I love the epic battles, of course, but here we have a chance to follow the mystery, the politics and the intrigue. These slow-burn political 'battles' are really driving the whole war effort.

"Dave actually had me watch (Alfred Hitchcock's) Notorious before we started working on 'Senate Spy.' He wanted me to see the way the pressure builds ­ especially when love is involved. Itšs a very different kind of danger than what we've seen in The Clone Wars. I really love that about the series; we are trying to give the Star Wars audience ­ old and new ­ something special."

The only way to silent these voices, the only thing that buys Jason a moment of respite... is murder."
