About Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Starting in 2008 with an animated movie, Star Wars: The Clone Wars lands chronologically between Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. The course of the series follows Jedi Master Yoda, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, and his apprentice Anakin Skywalker, as well as a host of characters, both new and familiar alike, in the war between the Jedi and the Sith, during the fall of the Galactic Republic.
The Clone Wars also introduced Ahsoka Tano, an apprentice of Anakin Skywalker and one of the main protagonists of the series. Her arc continued beyond the series into Star Wars Rebels, as well as other media throughout the franchise. When The Clone Wars return, we’ll see the final build-up to war with the Sith, the changing loyalties, and the threat to end the Jedi once and for all.
Check out the trailer to the new 7th season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars below:
One of the major elements that made The Clone Wars successful was its style, blending both a unique animation look. Still, the story and cinematography feel like a live-action series. The sense of adventure, as well as the familiar faces, helped to connect it to the cinematic universe. In addition to Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Yoda, other familiar faces, Padme Amidala; Jedi master Mace Windu; beloved droids C-3PO and R2-D2; the crime lord Jabba the Hutt; and villains Darth Maul, Count Dooku, and Palpatine. Darth Maul also plays a significant role in the series. The trailer for the new season shows a major showdown between him and Ahsoka (although, spoiler, we know both of them appear later in the timeline of the franchise).
What else do we know? Not a lot, although there are some rumors and plotlines confirmed by the show’s creators. The first film’s original director Dave Filoni (Rebels, The Mandalorian), who supervised the series, is back and has confirmed that the storylines in the original series will continue expanding and building up to events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Rumors abound about the timeline and whether or not it could connect to new characters from The Mandalorian, such as Moff Gideon.
Wherever the adventure takes us, fans are ready to come along for the next stage of our heroes when Star Wars: The Clone Wars returns on February 21.
