There's no word yet on exactly when we'll see these new episodes, but Disney's streaming service is slated to be unveiled sometime in 2019.
The sixth season was shorter than the five that proceeded it and left many of supervising director Dave Filoni's stories unresolved. Twelve new episodes will be coming to Disney's in-development streaming service, Entertainment Weekly reports.
The Clone Wars has been in hiatus for multiple years now and its revival is a shock to most fans of the show. I think the stories left an indelible impression and, of course, George knew it would. "This show is so important to me and really made me fall in love with Star Wars all over again". Several authors picked up those plot lines and wrote them into novels, such as Star Wars: Ahsoka Tano and Star Wars: Dark Disciple.
The trailer for the new season dropped on Thursday, showing Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Clone Trooper Rex and a nice surprise return for Ahsoka Tano - who fans last saw on Disney's other animated series, Star Wars Rebels, during a later time in the Star Wars saga. A new trailer has been released alongside, which you can see below.
I have to admit, Star Wars: The Clone Wars is one of the best animated shows I've watched behind Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League Unlimited, and the X-Men.
"I think the variety of stories was a big part of it". It join's Jon Favreau's live-action series-which will take place between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens-as the second Star Wars series on the new platform.
The animated television series, based on the prequel trilogy era of the Star Wars mythos, was a beloved corner of the Star Wars universe for many fans before being unceremoniously cancelled following DIsney's acquisition of Lucasfilm.
