The Clone Wars: Gungan Attack
My friends and I are watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Every Tuesday, we will be featuring an episode from the series which
began in 2008 (as opposed to the one that started in 2003). All are
welcome to join us for all or parts of the fun.
Episode: "Gungan Attack"
Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Season 4, Episode 2
Original Air Date: September 16, 2011
Our aquatic story arc continues. Last week, our heroes and their Mon Calamari friend Prince Lee-Char were forced to retreat to deep sea caves. After a failed attempt to get back to their ship above the surface, they contact the Jedi Council for help. The Gungans seem ideally suited to help. I'm not sure our friends were ever quite so happy to see Jar Jar!
Prince Lee-Char is voiced by Adam McArthur, a graduate of Pepperdine University. Apart from his acting career, McArthur is an accomplished martial artist, specializing in kung fu. He has been featured in two PBS documentaries about the discipline: Kung Fu: Journey to the East and Shaolin Kung Fu Monks. His best known voice role is Marco Diaz in Star vs. the Forces of Evil.
