a never-before seen lost episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars titled Crystal Crisis on Utapau. The story finds Obi-Wan and Anakin investigating the mysterious death of a Jedi Master on Utapau, as they uncover a secret Separatist weapons deal the likes of which they have never seen before.
Dave Filoni and others from this featurette are also working on the highly-anticipated series Star Wars Rebels series, which debuts on Friday, October 3 on the Disney Channel before the show moves to its regular network home on Disney XD on Monday, October 13.
