Official Blog: The Cinema Behind Star Wars: Stray Dog

Bryan Young brings us yet another insightful dip into the cinematic influences behind George Lucas’ time helming Star Wars in his latest entry over at The Official Star Wars Blog.

Since Netflix has rekindled my passion for The Clone Wars, it’s also reminded me how much classic cinema was crammed into the early seasons. For this installment, we’re going to be looking at the eleventh episode of Season Two of The Clone Wars, “Lightsaber Lost.” This story sees Anakin and Ahsoka searching the bad parts of Coruscant for an illicit arms dealer. One thing leads to another in the bad parts of the city-planet and Ahsoka’s lightsaber is clipped by a pickpocket.
