Concept Art and Trivia

Among the clone pilots serving with Obi-Wan Kenobi’s task force are Killer, the Z-95 Headhunter pilot who is shot down (left), and Engle, the Y-wing pilot who crashes into the hangar and is helped by Obi-Wan.

As part of the Animal Instincts tumbling troupe, some of the younglings dress as creatures. Petro is dressed up as a gundark, Zatt is dressed as a rancor and Gungi is dressed as a narglatch.

Katooni and Byph, however, are not dressed as animals. Katooni’s outfit is inspired by the palace outfit that Willie Scott wears in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, while Byph is adorned with blossoms from the trees of Carlac, seen in the Season Four episode, “A Friend in Need.”


The carnival performers include a keyboard instrument of the same type used by Max Rebo in Return of the Jedi. The Gamorrean clown plays it, though it is only partially seen on camera in the episode. Illustration by Andre Kirk.


When Petro spots Preigo’s transport through a pair of macrobinoculars, he reads the sign on the side as “Preigo’s Traveling World of Wonders.” The sign on the ship, though, just says “Preigo’s Carnival” in Huttese.
