Dave Filoni and head writer Matt Michnovetz answered fan questions during the Star Wars: The Clone Wars panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2012.
Will the clones get new armor this season?
Filoni: The next trailer, which we don’t have here today, will reveal a lot. I just like inventing new kinds of armor, but this season we stick pretty much with the phase 3 look. Not too many dramatic changes.
Will there be a big space battle any time soon?
Filoni: We would love to do it. It’s on our to-do list. Not this season, but we do have some smaller battles that you might enjoy.
Will we ever get a trilogy of episodes about the clone commandos?
Filoni: Not this season. We’re working on something for next season. But you will see a republic commando this season.
Why isn’t Boba Fett coming back for Season 5?
Filoni: We kind of have arcs of stories. It’s just not his turn. When he comes back, he comes back with a vengeance.
Are we going to see anything about the other military officers?
Filoni: Yeah, what you’re talking about is really important. We brought Tarkin into the show for a reason. Tarkin and his kind will be moving into powerful positions.
