STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS: "EVIL PLANS"

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

To view the clip, CLICK HERE.

Here's how the episode is described:

"In the middle of a routine shopping trip on Coruscant, C-3PO is abducted by bounty hunter Cad Bane. Soon, both Threepio and his astromech counterpart R2-D2 find themselves pawns in Bane’s plan to free Ziro the Hutt from a heavily guarded prison in the heart of the Republic. The hapless droids are once again integral in events that threaten to unravel the future of the galaxy."

Anthony Daniels reprises his role from the six Star Wars live-action films as C-3PO.

"Threepio's whole life is focused on how to avoid conflict, and the basic premise is that he's always out of place. But he doesn't have to be the fall guy all the time," Daniels said. "For once, we see him functioning as he was made, according to his programming. It's a more domesticated storyline, without the shoot-em-up aspects of the Saga. His abilities are cerebral, not physical -- and he finally gets to use his expertise in protocol and etiquette. In a way, he's more relaxed than we've ever seen him. But of course nothing in party-planning ever goes exactly as planned."



HUMAN TARGET: CHI MCBRIDE

The Continuum continues a series of interviews for Season 2 of Fox's Human Target with Chi McBride, who returns as Winston.

To view the preview clip, CLICK HERE.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Rick unknowingly causes a group of survivors to be trapped by walkers. The group dynamic devolves from accusations to violence, as Rick must confront an enemy far more dangerous than the undead."
