Star Wars The Clone Wars at Star Wars Celebration


The past weeks have been exciting for Star Wars fans. We have seen the release of a teaser trailer for Episode IX, an update on the Madalorian, and the new Clone Wars season 7.  The Star Wars Celebration for fans ran from April 11 – April 15 in Chicago. Fans of the Clone Wars series have been waiting for a 7th season, and at the Celebration we found out that the 7th season is ready for us. 

It has been over 5 years since the 6th season of the cult classic show due to Disney’s cancellation of it in 2013. Disney claims the show was cancelled back in 2013 because it was “too graphic.” At the time of the cancellation Disney wanted to make a new show that would be designed as a sequel to the Clone Wars called Star Wars Rebels. Fans have been asking for the Clone Wars to return for years, then in July 2018 the new teaser was released for a season 7, shocking star wars fans of all ages. Suddenly the hashtag #CloneWarsSaved began trending on Twitter.

The 7th season will have 12 new episodes that focus on fan favorite characters including: Ahsoka Tano, Darth Maul, and the Bad Batch. The 12 episodes take place prior to Revenge of the Sith, and ends off by the middle of Revenge of the Sith (at the mark of Order 66). This end-off will be the Siege of Mandalore, where the duel between Ahsoka and Maul, as seen in the trailer, will take place .

According to executive producer Dave Filoni, he said that these 12 episodes were from incomplete concepts before the cancellation. This could been seen with the Bad Batch characters, who were seen in unfinished story reels of the Bad Batch arc which was released online in 2014. Alongside The Mandalorian, The Clone Wars will be released on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+, most likely this fall.
