Behind the scenesEdit
The Lancer-class pursuit craft first appeared in the form of the Banshee, which was shown at Celebration Anaheim during "The Untold Clone Wars Panel." Originally set to appear in unfinished episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the episodes were adapted into a novel written by Christie Golden entitled Dark Disciple after the show's cancellation. Concept art of the Banshee, based off Doug Chiang's work on the Republic gunship, was shown during the panel. The final model was revamped into the Shadow Caster, featured in the episode "Blood Sisters" of Star Wars Rebels. The production asset for the Banshee was released in the episode's trivia section on Starwars.com.
