One of the main criticisms of The Force Awakens when it was released in 2015 was the lack of Captain Phasma, despite being one of the main characters heavily used to market the film. If Delilah S.

Harley Durst SOLO: A Star Wars Story Interview – Moloch.

Moloch was present in the White Worm’s den when Han Solo was brought to Lady Proxima after his failed mission. Lady Proxima was angered by Han’s failure and ordered Rebolt to hit Han with a staff. Han got angered by this, grabbed the staff from Rebolt, and said that he will hit back. Moloch then pulled out a blaster and pointed it at Han. Frightened for Han, Qi’ra ran in front of Moloch and pleaded with him to not shoot Han. Han then grabbed a rock and broke a window with it, exploiting the Grindalid weakness of sunlight. This caused Proxima to burn it up and retreat into the water. Han then took Qi’ra, pushed through the scumrats, and ran outside the den. Moloch quickly covered his face with armor so he wouldn’t burn, and started to pursue Han and Qi’ra. As Han and Qi’ra were escaping in a land speeder, Moloch opened fire on them, but was not able to hit them or the speeder.

Moloch then took Rebolt, Syke, and a pack of Corellian hounds with him in his A-A4B landspeeder to pursue the White Worm deserters with. Moloch quickly caught up to Qi’ra and Han in his speeder, and started to knock their speeder with his much more sizable speeder. Moloch proceeded to chase the deserters through the streets of Coronet City. Han eventually took the chase into an industrial manufacturing plant. Han then slanted his speeder to try and fit through a small crevice so Moloch would not catch him. At the end of the crevice Han’s speeder became wedged in the crevice, so him and Qi’ra were forced to continue running on foot. Moloch’s speeder was way to big to go after them, so like Han and Qi’ra, him and his pary were forced to chase the deserters on foot.

Dave Fennoy Interview – Pong Krell

In a recent conversation with Dave Fennoy, I managed to ask him a few questions about his voice over work, in particular, his role as Jedi Pong Krell in the Clone Wars: Animated  Series.

I will not be undermined by creatures bred in some laboratory!―Pong Krell

Pong Krell, a Force-sensitive Besalisk male, was a Jedi Master during the last years of the Galactic Republic. During the Clone Wars, he held the rank of Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic. Although the clone troopers under his command sustained the highest casualty rates, Krell was recognized as a successful general due to his victories on the battlefield. In addition to his reputation as a general, he was also noted for his ferocity in personal combat. The advantage of his four-armed physiology allowed him to use a unique form of Jar’Kai—wielding two double-bladed lightsabers at the same time. However, as the war carried on Krell began to see visions of a new order rising to power in place of both the Republic and the Jedi Order. Driven by self-preservation, he secretly embraced the dark side of the Force and began undermining the Republic military’s war effort in hopes of gaining Count Dooku’s attention, to ultimately become his apprentice preceding the fall of the Republic.

During the Battle of Umbara, Krell temporarily replaced Anakin Skywalker as the commanding officer of the 501st Legion. When his soldiers discovered their general’s secret allegiance to Dooku, the clones mutinied against Krell’s command and moved to arrest him for treason. Despite killing multiple troopers while attempting to escape, the fallen Jedi was captured and imprisoned by his men. Although his subordinate, Clone Captain CT-7567, decided to execute him, it was ultimately Krell’s strongest supporter, trooper “Dogma,” on questioning Krell as to why he was performing these actions, who stole a blaster from Fives’ holster, and killed him for betraying the Republic.
