'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' preview: Mandalore under attack

Backed by the criminal underworld, the Sith and Death Watch launch an attack on Mandalore in "Shades of Reason," the upcoming episode of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars."

As you can see in the clip above, Darth Maul (voiced by Chicago native Sam Witwer) gathers the galaxy's most vicious criminals--including the Hutts, Black Sun and the Pykes--to launch attacks across the planet in order to weaken citizens' trust in Duchess Satine's rule.

In the paln's second phase, Pre Vizsla (Jon Favreau), Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) and the Death Watch will swoop in to stop the attacks, offering the people of Mandalore a new option in leadership as you see in the second clip.

But criminals really can't get along, can they? The conquest of Mandalore strains the tenuous alliance between the Sith and Death Watch. Tune in to "Shades of Reason" at 8:30 a.m. CT Jan. 26 on Cartoon Network.
