For those that watched. But you'll need to subscribe to Disney's upcoming streaming service.

Surprise! Star Wars: The Clone Wars Returning With New Episodes!

In a move that will come as a surprise to many Star Wars fans, Lucasfilm has announced they are bringing back the beloved series Star Wars: The Clone Wars for all-new episodes to debut on the upcoming Disney streaming service. Check out the video below that confirms The Clone Wars returning, as well as new key art in the gallery!

Just announced by Dave Filoni (Star Wars Rebels) 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. 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.

I just saw this.

Fuck Yes.

I know some will regard it as a cartoon, and there for for children, and some of it is definitely.

But there was always an element of story telling and over-arching plots that made Clone Wars worth far more than any of the actual Star Wars sequels.

I own seasons 1-5 plus the lost episodes, and will be buying this.

Damnit Disney! I started this show awhile back on netflix. Ive gotten thru...at least the first 2 seasons...maybe 3...cant remember where I left off. The "true" order you're supposed to watch them jumps around a lot for the first few seasons. I've really been wanting to get back to watching it lately.

Yeah, there is an order that mostly dumps the fluff episodes, and swaps a few episodes earlier and later.

Dumping the fluff episodes probably helps the most.


If Disney wants to save Star Wars, there is ONE thing they need to do.

Put Dave Filoni in charge of the ENTIRE franchise like Kevin Feige is for MCU. He has great reverence for the universe, and knows what fans want. Just as important, Dave Filoni knows how to PACE a story over multiple arcs and develop characters over time.

Dave Filoni has Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Clone Wars to his name. Two series that even years later are beloved by fans because of how well the stories hold up.

FRIENDLY PSA:

This show will be leaving netflix on April 7th. We knew this day would come. I thought there'd be more time tho.

Guess I best get back on this so I can finish out what I can before Disney takes control .

Season 4 is all I have left. Would help if I stopped falling asleep at night and having to rewatch.

It seems like a lot. But then I remember that each episode is 22m. So with no commercials and skipping the filler episodes you can get through it pretty quick.

It’s not like trying to get through all of Stargate or Star Trek.

Yeah each episode is only 22 minutes, but each season is also 22 episodes, except for the lost misisons. And with this show I could only get through so many episodes before i either fell asleep or couldnt pay attention anymore. I didn't skip any episodes either, watched all 121, plus the movie.

I still need this. Trailer popped up again on my recommended list. Had to watch it again.

I just want a version without the Geico ticket.

Now that D+ is here these episodes are all viewable again. But February is still so damn far away, so I just started up Rebels last night. Got about 6 or 7 episodes into season 1 so far and enjoying it.

Finally just finished season 1 of rebels. Oh man, when [REDACTED] came down that ladder at the end of the finale I got goosebumps. I don't know why I didn't start this series sooner. Can't wait to fire up season 2.
