re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Final Season on Disney+ - premieres 2/21/20

Just announced by Dave Filoni at San Diego Comic-Con during a 10th anniversary celebration of the beloved animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be returning with 12 all-new episodes on Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming service. Created by George Lucas, the show first aired in 2008 and became an entry point into Star Wars for an entire generation, following fan-favorites like Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Padmé Amidala, while introducing major new characters like Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex. Its stories were complex, its heroes and villains were perfectly imperfect, and its look was captivatingly beautiful. It became a multi-Emmy winner and is now regarded as essential Star Wars.

But it was never finished. The Clone Wars ended after five broadcast seasons — just as Ahsoka left the Jedi Order. A few post-Season Five episodes were later released as “The Lost Missions,” but the story wasn’t over. Fans have clamored for Disney and Lucasfilm to finish what was started ever since. And now it’s actually happening.

StarWars.com recently caught up with Filoni, supervising director and shepherd of the series, to discuss the shocking return of The Clone Wars. You can also check out the trailer above, which debuted at the panel, and a striking new poster below.



StarWars.com: Did you ever think this would be possible? That we’d get here?

Dave Filoni: No. I didn’t, I really didn’t.

StarWars.com: What can you say about the fans’ enthusiasm over the years and, really, their role in making this happen?

Dave Filoni: Well, thankfully, their enthusiasm is relentless. Their love of these characters and stories hasn’t diminished. I actually think their voice has gotten louder as the years have gone by. It’s been very humbling to have their support and to have people continue to hashtag me, “#SaveTheCloneWars.”

StarWars.com: To you personally, what does it mean to get to finish it?

Dave Filoni: Personally, it’s very rewarding. Any opportunity to put the final pieces of the story in place is meaningful as a storyteller. I’m happy for the opportunity to define these things and the end of this part of the Clone War. It also makes me reflect on all the people that I got to work with over the years. It reinforces the things I learned from George. It reminds me of the important elements that go into making Star Wars. So, it’s nice on several levels, and I think for the crew that’s still here that worked on Clone Wars, they feel that, as well.

StarWars.com: What do you think it is, 10 years later now, that made this show resonate so much with people, and made it stick with them, and gave it the strength to come back?

Dave Filoni: I think the variety of stories was a big part of it. You also can’t underestimate how important it was that so many people grew up with the show. Clone Wars was a piece of Star Wars that older fans might have, initially, not taken seriously because it was animated, but that wasn’t a barrier for kids. They loved the clones and identified with them. Ahsoka gave kids a character that was like them — someone their age that was experiencing life’s challenges and learning along the way. Plus, having a new episode each week really allowed us to explore what was going on with the new and legacy characters in a dynamic way, including Anakin and Obi-Wan. I think the stories left an indelible impression and, of course, George knew it would. He always knew.

Awesome news.

Last year I binged the last season on Netflix because of a rumor that it was being pulled from the service. I rushed through the final episodes on the last day ... only to find that it was a just rumor and they weren't being pulled.

Fan-fucking-tastic.

It was absolutely absurd for them to kill the series the way they did. I hope they get the opportunity to bring the story right up to the opening seconds of Revenge of the Sith.

Disney is probably the only "network" streaming service that I'd be willing to pay for so this news works for me.

I know all the old EU books are not canon anymore, but I really enjoyed Labyrinth of Evil and how it led up to episode 3. That was a phenomenal book.

With the Fox deal, Disney will have a majority stake of Hulu, I still hope they just say screw it and use Hulu as their platform. They won't and I will have to look at another streaming service, but I can hope.

I think it would be the other way around. As big as Hulu is, the Disney name is bigger. If anything, they'd move Hulu's offerings to the Disney service. That said, I think you could make a case for them staying separate as Hulu has more shows that aren't appropriate for the whole family.

And yet, they made a big deal about bringing THE SIMPSONS over to Disney+ so "adult" shows don't really matter.

Disney+ isn't compelling enough for me to spend $6.99 a month for 9 Star Wars shows and 16 Marvel superhero shows. All the other stuff is already on other apps.

Seems so. How much longer can they stay in this period?

I had seen some internet rumblings of a sequel to Rebels next in line with Ashoka and Sabine as the main characters.

The Clone Wars only lasted 3 years. They can't go too long.

Although M*A*S*H did 11 seasons for a 3 year conflict.

Yeah, it may have lasted for three years, but it was fought across an entire galaxy on many fronts. In theory, there's probably enough potential material there to cover a dozen more seasons.

But it does seem kind of weird that we have, like seven seasons of filmed canon story material covering the Clone Wars, and only three movies that cover Rebellion vs Empire conflict. We've even seen more of Ezra Bridger than we have Luke Skywalker, and that just seems really odd.
