One of the most popular Star Wars series out there is The Clone Wars.
The computer animated show began in 2008 with a movie. Then the series was aired on Cartoon Network for five seasons, until it finally moved to Netflix for the sixth season in 2014.
Then it was over, or so we thought.
The fans worked hard to rally for the show’s return and in 2018 hope returned when Disney announced, at the San Diego Comic Con, that the show would be coming back for Disney+. After several years the wait is over and we now have a release date.
The show will officially premier on Disney+ on February 17, 2020 as the series finale with 12 episodes.
Producer and director Dave Filoni will be returning for the final season, which is fitting after his amazing contributions to Star Wars and The Clone Wars.
He had this to say about wrapping up this saga:
“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.”
Get ready the finale is almost here!
