The Clone Wars 2.18: The Zillo Beast

Our Review

This is the Godzilla/King Kong episode of The Clone Wars. And even though we’re mixing genres with the Zillo Beast, this episode does a great job of mixing them right. This is also the first time in Star Wars canon that we’ve encountered a beast that can resist a lightsaber.

“The Zillo Beast” takes us to Malastare, a planet that has been mentioned in Episode 1, but never actually seen in canon material until now. Thankfully, this episode takes its cues from the expanded universe to develop the look of the planet, right down to the neon green fuel. It also includes the class relationship between the different species on the planet.

Overall, this is a great addition to Star Wars canon.
