"Build your own lightsaber, you shall. But first, harvest your crystal, each one of you must." - Yoda from The Gathering episode of The Clone Wars.
This week begins a whole new arc to Star Wars: The Clone Wars. In this arc we will get to meet some new characters and see just how a Jedi constructs his lightsaber.
The Plot: Ahsoka escorts a group of younglings to Ilum, where they will learn from Yoda and undergo a crucial rite-of-passage: the construction of their lightsabers. They grapple with both physical and inner challenges as they face the dangerous task ahead of them in “The Gathering,” airing this Saturday, November 3rd at 9:30am ET/PT on Cartoon Network.
