Dengar is going to pop up in The Clone Wars, and this time he’ll actually talk. While the Bounty Hunter only was a background character in The Empire Strikes Back and had zero lines, he’s become a fan favorite over the years. Now Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Simon Pegg is voicing Dengar in the Clone Wars episode “Bounty”.
In “Bounty,” Dengar teams up with Boba Fett, Bossk, and bounty-hunter newbie Asajj Ventress to protect a valuable shipment being sent through the interior of a planet via hover rail. Of course, forces conspire to pry this precious cargo from their greedy fingers. Think of it like The Great Train Robbery, as directed by George Lucas.
“Bounty” airs tonight on Cartoon Network.
