Star Wars: The Clone Wars holds a very special place in the hearts of Star Wars fans everywhere. It started off as a movie that most people agree wasn’t the best. Then, it became a TV series on Cartoon Network, and though it was slow to start, it became something…unique. We got to see the universe of Star Wars through many different characters eyes. We got to see more of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Mace Windu, Yoda, and new characters like Ashoka Tano, Rex, Cody, and even characters from the books that had never been done like this before.
For five seasons, Star Wars: The Clone Wars was one of the best animated series on TV. But then, Disney bought Lucasfilm, and they canceled the series. Leftover episodes were released on Netflix, but the series still felt unfinished. But now, at San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that the series is coming back to finish the war, finish the story, and give fans the closure they deserve.
The trailer below teases a lot of what you can expect. Including the returns of Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ashoka. Apparently, this true final season will be 12 episodes long, and will tie up all loose ends. Showrunner Dave Filoni notes that the episodes will debut on Disney’s streaming service when it arrives in 2019.
